Missing Since 12/10/12

Atticus went missing from 10563 Elk Run Rd, just south of Catlett. He has two red spots on his head and was wearing a brown and blue striped collar. He is about 15 months. The collar has a link for the tag but the tag fell off. He may have been picked up by a passing motorist but not turned over to any of the local shelters. He was very fit and trim when he was lost; but may be very thin if he's been running. He is not a stray, nor is he abandoned. He is a much loved part of the family. There is a generous reward for his safe return. Possible sighting in Summerduck on 12/15/12. Lost on December 10th, 2012, in Fauquier County near the Prince William border. Please contact Jessica Swan at 540-788-9022 with sightings or any other information

Champ is Missing Near Lorton

Missing Since Feb 6th, 2012

Champ jumped the fence of his adoptive home.  He's about 10 years old with short hair. He's mostly brown with a white snout, white feet and white under his chin and on his neck. His snout has a pink zig zag from the middle to the top of his nose which is pretty distinctive. One eye has extra skin around the eyeball so his eyes look uneven. He also has a limp in his left rear leg. His ears flop forward. He's neutered. He has  unusually long legs which make him look kind of gangly and awkward. He's a very sweet dog with a quiet disposition.  Do not chase.  Please call 703-455-0509 immediately if seen.

Pippin - Missing since 10/4/10!

Search expanded to Burke

11/2/10: Update on Pippin
*May* have been recently spotted in Burke

Pippin, a 7 year old very large all-black male cat with a distinctive scar between his shoulder blades went missing in early October in the Bonnie Brae area of Fairfax.  We have reason to believe that he *may* have been spotted in his original neighborhood just south and west of the intersection of Roberts Parkway and Burke Center Parkway, and so we are extending our search area in hopes of finding him.

He is very shy, and so may not be easy to approach, but we ask that if at all possible, you attempt to catch him (he's gentle!) and keep him in a spare bathroom until one of us can come to retrieve him.

Time is of the essence any/all help in finding him would be most appreciated!

Please contact HART volunteer Jacquie at (703) 795-2652 or his foster family at (703) 727-8519
with any/all news.

Jack - missing since 12/26/07

HART dog lost in DC!


The owner was walking Jack, a former HART dog, when both were surprised by a mean dog and meaner owner. The mean owner dropped the leash so the mean dog could attack Jack. Jack's owner tried to break up the dog fight, but then the mean owner got mad and beat Jack's owner! Jack was so frightened, he slipped his collar and has not been seen again.

Jack is a Beagle/Hound mix, roughly 50 lbs, tri colored, has an NDR tattoo but no collar and no tags (he slipped his collar during the attack). Jack was last seen on 12/26/07 at 4:30 PM at the intersection of 6th Street NW and Q Street NW heading towards North Capital Street.

Since his disappearance, there have been a few possible sightings of Jack: In January 2008 at Haines Point and in February 2008 at the corner of R and Eckington NE.

If you have seen Jack, please call HART at
