Jayne Hayes, founder of DogLost, the UK’s largest dog rescue community, receives Points of Light award

Jayne Hayes, from Newport, is the founder of ‘DogLost’, the UK’s largest dog rescue community.

Jayne set up the service in 2003 after her own dog went missing and was recovered, and since then, the online community has grown to over 150,000 owners, who share information to help find lost or stolen pets. The charity is entirely volunteer-run and provides support completely free of charge, including offering a service to create posters for missing dogs, and delivering posters to all helpers registered within a 30 mile radius of where a dog has gone missing. To date, over 55,000 dogs have been found through her charity.

Jayne said:

“Thank you very much for the award which I accept on behalf of the 150,000 DogLost volunteers who work tirelessly to reunite dogs with their owners.”

    I don’t live in UK anymore but I am appalled about all the dog napping occurring in the UK, the violence of snatching a dog from its owner. Does your group ever help in locating any of them? I would like to join your group, I am kept up to date with missing dogs by friends, mostly in the Kent area. And i share info.
