Initial Consultation (no charge)--You will describe the general circumstances of your
pet's disappearance and the steps you have already taken to get your pet home. We will discuss the
cost and advisability of hiring Lost Pet Specialist to help with your search. Due to the recent deluge of
spam, I'm no longer posting my email address on the website, but you can text me.
In-depth Phone Consultation ($175*)--You will provide the details of your pet's
disappearance, personality, health, and habits. Looking at Google maps views of your area, we can
make site-specific recommendations. We will tailor a search strategy to get your pet home. This
process usually takes about 90 minutes. The in-depth phone consultation is all that many people need
to successfully find their pet. If you decide to hire us for an on-site search, a portion of the cost of the
phone consultation can be applied toward your on-site search. We accept Venmo, Zelle, Paypal
Personal at no additional charge. Credit card payments incur a 3% service charge.
On-site Search (See prices above)--In addition to providing an in-depth consultation, we
will come to the location where the pet was lost and conduct a thorough search using a trained scent
detection dog. The search dog will work for up to 2.5 hours. So you can expect us to be on-site for
about 3-4.5 hours. If your pet is not found during the search, we will spend some time fine-tuning
your search strategy based on the day's findings and continue to support you by phone at no
additional charge. You may be asked to pay a deposit in the amount of half of your search fee. The
balance is due when we arrive at your location. If you have paid a deposit, and your pet is found
before we depart, you may be entitled to a partial refund of your deposit, so please call immediately if
your pet is located. However, no refund will be given if we have had to turn down another search in
order to reserve the time for you.

Waco $550, Austin $750, OK City $750, San Antonio $850, Houston $850. A mileage charge will also
