Important: read first!
Welcome to our new Case Closed Form. This combines multiple forms (case closed – owned, case closed – stray, AND intake) into one streamlined form.
Be sure to read and answer every question in the order that it appears. Based on the answer you select, questions will dynamically populate. We hope you find this to be a much more efficient, streamlined approach!
If you notice any issues with this form, or have questions, please email Gina: email@example.com. (If this is regarding an issue with the form, be sure to include screenshots to help aid in troubleshooting. Thank you!)
Case Closed - Owned Pet
This form is used by HARTT volunteers once a lost pet has been located and secured. This could be for a pet owner we've been working with in response to a Help Request, OR a pet that is found and returned in the field. It could also be for a pet who is found deceased, or a pet who is found by someone other than HARTT.
Example: Pet originally escaped from a pet sitter. We received sporadic sightings in a 2-mile radius for the first week, then nothing. Pet was then spotted by someone who saw our social media post - we went to the scene and were able to leash the dog.

Case Closed - Stray
Example: Has been seen around an elementary school for weeks and in the area for more than a year. Someone has been feeding every day prior to our trapping attempts. Was trap-shy and dog was ultimately captured by a large volunteer team using barrier nets. We are unaware of any owners looking for this dog.
Examples: tolerates but is frightened of being pet; curled up in corner, no eye contact; eagerly follows people; soft body posture, soft tail wags; lifts lip and gives side eye glances when hand approaches; growls; doesn't like feet touched.
*NOTE: If found deceased, please post a photo of the animal when living.
