More than  2,500 pets have been reunited through WPLP

Co-Founded by Shelley Heistand and Judy Charuhas, WinterParkLostPets.com answers a need in the community to help reunite lost and found pets with their owners. Of course, the pets themselves do not have words. We must be their voice. We must speak on their behalf and tell the community, “I am lost. Help me get home.”

Because of you, their voice is being heard. They are finding their way back home. One by one. By signing up for FREE e-mail alerts and telling your friends, neighbors, petsitters (oh heck just everyone!) we can spread the word when a pet is lost or found in our area. Those pets need all the help they can get!

The Lost Pets Foundation was established in 2012 and is a 501(c)3. Your donations help us offer free microchipping and registration, free or discount vaccinations, free or discount spay/neuter, cover emergency vet costs and help support local rescues.
