Missing pet partnership, Kat Albrecht, Lost animals and other not so random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Lost animals are truly the hardest piece of being an Animal Communicator. Many people think that they want to become an Animal Communicator because they wanted to go to vet school but they couldn’t handle the tragedies or the sick animals. Well, there are no shortage of tragedies as an animal communicator, the biggest one being – lost animals. Partly because there is no closure.

I discovered a missing piece to a puzzle tonight. I know working to help people find lost animals is so important. I know that sometimes people get closure – even if it means finding the body of their beloved. That  is better than the unknown, the forever haunting “what if I had only braved the cold…..crawled under the house….bothered my neighbors a little more……”

Monday night in my Animal Education Teleseminar – my guest was Kat Albrecht, a true Pet Detective and founder of http://www.missingpetpartnership.org and she was so inspiring. She was inspiring for many reasons which I will cheerfully divulge.

However, the missing puzzle piece tonight after 14 years of lost animal work from the psychic world is this…..for those that get debilitated emotionally, or can’t for some reason put some effort into finding your animal when they are lost – you must get out there and look. So many people give up right away thinking a coyote or a car got them. That is less the case than not. Then these animals become part of the feral community and/or the overrun shelters…..and adoption is at an all time low. I always do my homework before a call – but that was a delayed unexpected deep seated raison d’être for continuing lost animal work.

I’m working my tail off to help people keep forever homes through consultations, speaking and my book . . . so even for me tonight there was a major lightbulb. Really encourage at all costs people to get out and look – no matter what defeated excuses they give. And as I have ALWAYS said to clients, Kat confirmed – it’s a time to knock on your neighbors doors and ask if you can look in their yard.

************I lost my beloved Alexandria two years ago (after 13 years), so this was an especially important call.  Alexandria was very much my personal emotional raison d’être. She and I had been together in LA, Seattle, Denver, Florida and back to Seattle. She could move and bounce like the best of them. She had been on 3 farms, 2 urban setting, one suburban setting a beach townhouse and beachhouse, ski condo’s guest homes and hotels…… she was always THERE. Her disappearance is a story for another blog – this should focus on Kat and her amazing detective work.

Kat’s site http://www.missingpetpartnership.org has an amazing amount of tips for lost animals. And I might add this is Kat’s raison d’être. Her passion and skill came into play as she was a forensics detective that used dogs and one of her dogs was lost. Her dog was not only her lifeline to her detective work, but also her baby. She used her retired detective dog to find the newer dog and the idea sparked for missing pets.

Most of my students in Communication with all Life University are coming to the animal communication certification program later in life, as a second career. Kat’s awesome passion, her pursuit, her doubt, and her determination is an inspiration to all. Almost everyone was inspired by her amazing perseverance and others of course are drawn to the detective aspect.

There are always amazing calls on my Animal Education Teleseminar series – the continuing education part of Communication with all Life University – but this one hit a chord for all for many different “raison’s”.

Pet owners turn to massage, yoga to help furry friends — OrlandoSentinel.com

It’s always great to have a nice mention. . . .I happened to be calling the Orlando Sentinel about one of the benefits we were doing and the next thing you know I was being interviewed about my Animal Communication classes and ultimately asked about my University.

I’m very proud of my University. My students are doing great and the first round of 5 are about to graduate in March.  So the heat is on for them. We are creating a business and intuition building exercise that will last for the next 3 months. It will get them out in the community they live in, engage other practitioners, have them use their electives and also work with local pet businesses. Not to mention, one of the ultimate beneficiaries of this assignment is the rescue org of their choice.  It’s awesome. (I’m calling it THE assignment – not to scare them or anything!)

And they are an amazing and courageous group of people. I’m proud to have Communication with all Life University mentioned in the Orlando Sentinel. I’m also glad to see the work of Jo Maldanado and CAT (Center for Animal Therapies.)

We had a great Dr. Steven Farmer call last night and the exciting news is we will be doing a live event soon together – but that’s all I can share. Interested in Aromatherapy for pets? Saddle fitting – join the teleseminars – for more info:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING ~

Broward County Humane Society and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Broward County Humane Society Benefit

Animal Communication mini class

Last Thursday we did a big benefit for the Broward County Humane Society in Ft. Lauderdale at the Jessica Sydney showroom. It was a lovely place to host such an event. Amidst the gorgeous furniture (yes I found what I’d like next for my living room) were plenty of stations with various things like New Age Books & Things crystals with some crystal blankets for horses, dogs and cats by Claudia Carpenter. Central Bark Doggy Daycare had a wonderful booth on good foods and the Humane society also had their retail shop up and going and a great dog massage practitioner – Hope of Dog Massage by Hope had a booth there.  New Age Books & Things had a set up with my book and new cd’s so I got to sign lots of books before speaking. (Oh goody!)

The other great thing is they had an abundance of wonderful things donated for the raffle. I wanted a tropical dog bed that would of course become a kitten bed as well. I didn’t win. Oh well.

They had smart things donated like rug cleaning service (HELLO!) air duct cleaners (can you say dog hair), lots of basket by fancy pet boutiques, riding lessons by a wonderful horse trainer (lots of horsey peeps there) and much much more. 

All in all it was a great event – a lot of money and awareness was raised,  everyone had fun and the best was how happy the dog Sebastian was that he got to talk to the group during my mini class.
