Found this lost dog October 17, 2017 

We noticed a lost dog hanging out with the Fire Dept crew who were blocking Firwood Road on the inside of the subdivision October 17, 2017 after the big wind storm.  The Fire Dept crew told us that they called RDCO, but RDCO told them that RDCO was closing and wouldn't be able to come and pick up the dog.  UNBELIEVABLE.  RDCO would abandon a dog in its most vulnerable time, wouldn't they!  Is that how you would want your dog treated if you lost your dog not knowing where it went?

Don't know what happened with this male dog.  I suppose the dog eventually made it home or RDCO came to get it the next day, but we don't know.  Suppose that would be another Freedom of Information request.

If that was our dog that RDCO so randomly choose not to pick up, I would be supremely irate that RDCO would just leave my dog to be run over, when RDCO had knowledge where my dog was.  Maybe the dogs owner does not know where their dog is to be able to find it, but RDCO has the knowledge.  Crooked RDCO who takes peoples money and does not provide a service with $1.4 million dollars.  RDCO would just let the dog be run over for $1.4 million dollars!!!

This dog is now at RDCO pound.  He has no licence, but he has balls.

This dog was found in our yard at Valley of the at large dogs.  Its not like we have not warned the owner before, so this dog is now at the pound.  When we warned the owner before about this dog on the road at large, he didn't seem to mind too much, and we keep seeing this dog on the road, so hence the reason for RDCO pound.  One day this dog was chasing a vehicle down the road which we have on video.

Think its time to keep an eye on your dog, don't you think.  I don't want your dog in my yard or my house.  When I opened my door to go in my house, your dog followed me.  Luckily my dog didn't see your dog in my yard, and only I seen it or maybe your dog would have lost his balls.

Maybe next time your dog won't be so lucky, eh??  You better take better care of your dog, or your dog may become coyote food!!!

If anyone is interested in a pet tracking system for a dog or cat, have them e-mail me. Please take out the "BRAND NAME" out of the info and call it a tracking system. I can then better direct the person on how to purchase this unit without paying a fortune. It can cost up to $700.00 depending on how they purchase it and on which sites. I will give them the "REAL SITE". I talked to the owner in the U.S. who has the patent of this system. His is the "REAL WEBSITE".


Below is some information about this system:

Please feel free to post about the tracking system. It sure does take the worry out of losing your cat. With this unit, you know where he is at all times. It monitors him while in a medium range virtual pen and when he goes out of bounds, I switch it from monitor to tracking. It will display an arrow, sounds a beep as to how close I am to him as well as a percentage.

* Simple to setup and use, single button-push to begin searching for lost pets with real-time distance and direction feedback
* Simultaneous monitoring of up to 3 pets with 4 programmable "safety zone" areas for each pet
* Works anywhere, totally self-contained, no GPS or cell network required, no monthly service contracts, ideal for traveling with your pets
* Rechargeable lithium-ion battery on pets collar lasts up to 90 days while being continuously monitored
* Saves hundreds of dollars over product lifetime when compared to subscription-based solutions

The Advanced Pet Tracking system is Waterproof and Extremely Rugged is the ideal solution to keep your pets safe while they enjoy all the activities they love. Suitable for pets ranging from the largest dogs down to the smallest dogs and cats having a collar length of 7 inches or more. No internet or cellular access is needed so you can take your pets with you to the most remote locations, knowing that you will be alerted quickly if they wander and easily track them if they become lost. It is the perfect solution for protecting your pets while traveling or at home. Extremely rugged, the Advanced Tracking Tag is made to withstand rough terrain and prolonged swimming. The streamlined design keeps the tag out of harm’s way so it is not caught on branches or damaged while playing. Up to two additional tracking tags (sold separately) can be added to the system at any time to allow monitoring and tracking of up to three pets. The tracking tag has an internal, rechargeable battery that lasts up to 6 weeks on a single charge. Since the tracking system requires no monthly fees it will save you hundreds of dollars over the life of the system when compared to subscription-based systems. When searching for your pet, this unit acts like a personal radar system, scanning every inch of the surrounding area, including the interiors of homes and backyards. The system range is up to 2 miles in open conditions but, as with any 2-way radio system, varies with terrain and obstructions. If your pet is outside the system’s range you can continuously scan hundreds of acres of surrounding area as you drive or walk around. Once within range of your pet the locator will guide you directly to their exact location, within inches if necessary, even if they are injured or hiding – a perfect solution for finding cats that are reluctant to come in at night. Select one of four safety zone ranges for your pet and receive warnings in less than 80 seconds when your pet wanders.

5.0 out of 5 starsI have been looking for a good solution to keep track of my pets
ByStephen C.on November 27, 2016
Verified Purchase

I have been looking for a good solution to keep track of my pets. I have a 70lb Lab that loves the water and an 8lb cat that loves to hide from me when it is time to come in for the night. Finding one solution for both pets has been a challenge to say the least.

For the cat, it has to fit comfortably on the breakaway collar she already wears. The tag weighs less than an ounce and attaches with a soft nylon fabric holder that fits tight to the collar so there is nothing hanging down to catch on branches. She barely noticed it after I put it on her collar.

For the Lab, I need a product that can stand up to his love for the water and his crashing through the bushes on our hikes. I take him with me on trips where we are often in areas without cell service and this is one of the few products that works everywhere without the need for cell coverage.

As for cost, I looked at the popular GPS/cellular system (which is too big for my cat and won’t work where I hike with my dog) and even with their sale prices by the time you add in the service fees it is actually more expensive by the end of the first year for my 2 pets than this tracking system is – and the fees don’t stop after that! After 3 years the GPS unit is almost 3 times the cost of this tracking system.

PS: I found a video online of the tag being run over by a car, these things are built to take a beating!

The Pet Kit is a pet tracker that is not a GPS locator, so is suitable for seeking lost pets within a two-mile radius, which is the optimal distance with no obstructions. This pet tracker uses the unlicensed 900 MHz ISM radio frequency band, for which there are no special user requirements. This radio frequency band can penetrate brick and concrete walls with no problem, and the device analyzes the signals from all directions over 1,000 times per second.

The handheld locator is easy to set up and turn on, and when you want to search for your pet you only need to press a single button to begin. The locator shows you the distance your pet is away from you and has a directional indicator so that you know which way to go. It is accurate within inches.

The pet collar tag, which is 1.75 ounces and is suitable for pets over 10 pounds in weight, is splash- and weatherproof and can be submerged in six inches of water for 10 minutes at a time. It clips onto the collar and so is fairly secure unless you have a pet who likes to wriggle under and through obstacles. The single pet kit comes with one tag, and other options are two-pet and three-pet kits, as well as individual tags.

The handset is capable of simultaneously monitoring up to three pets at a time. It has four programmable safety zones, and you can set up a zone for each pet. These boundaries are preset in the system, and you can choose between 50 feet, 100 feet, 300 feet and the maximum range of the handset. An alarm notifies you within 80 seconds if your pet has moved over a boundary.

If you have no idea where your pet is, you can put the locator in search mode and walk or drive around. If you're driving, you just need to put the handset on the seat next to you and it will work as well as if you were holding it. The pet tracker will beep when it picks up the signal from your pet's tag and move into locator mode. You can enter your pet's ID tag into more than one locator so that a number of people can search for one animal.

The pet tracking device kit includes a plug-in charger for the pet tag and the locator, which uses rechargeable lithium ion batteries. The battery in the collar tag lasts up to 90 days with continuous monitoring; there is also a low-battery alert.

The pet tracking device works anywhere because it is not a GPS tracking device, and it does not require a cell phone network to operate. You can use it at home or while hiking or traveling with your pet. There is no monthly service fee to pay, so if this pet tracker meets your requirements, it is worth considering.

UPDATE: Joey is back home March 30, 2017 and going to be fitted with a GPS lol.  He decided to come home on his own we were told.

Joey is missing again March 23, 2017!

On March 22, 2017, he was frightened and chased by a dog. He is extremely scared and could be hiding anywhere. He lives in the Alexis Park Area at 4104 34A Street. If you see a black and white tuxedo cat with long fur, 4 white legs, a black back and tail, please call Debbie Bannister at (250)545-8140.

UPDATE Joey is back home.  Here is Joeys found story.
I received a phone call tonight from a couple that saw my cat in the 41st street and 26th avenue area, just a few streets south of Bella Vista Road. The husband identified Joey by using a pair of binoculars. He ran after Joey on foot and chased him into someone's outside storage shed. The door was open slightly so Joey could get in and hide. Joey is about 10lbs lighter and a little sc

ruffy but very happy to be finally back home.

"My male neutered cat Joey went missing just before Christmas in the Alexis Park Area of Vernon. He has black and white fluffy long fur with beautiful green eyes. Has a tattoo in his right ear. We let him out after supper and called for him to come in at 9pm but no show. This was very unusual for him. Is there anyone out there that has seen him? He is somewhat skittish. Please check your garden sheds, garages etc. as he may have got his long fur stuck. If you see him or have any information please call me at (250) 545-8140 anytime day or night. We love and miss him so much."

Dog adoption bid goes off the rails
Kelowna Daily Courier - March 17, 2016 - Andrea Peacock

Where is Angus?
Angus is one of the dogs West Kelowna resident Lorinda Shmyr was hoping to adopt.

Where is Pepper?
Pepper, is one of the dogs West Kelowna resident Lorinda Shmyr was hoping to adopt.

Lorinda Shmyr thought she had two dogs lined up to adopt, but when the dogs seemed to go missing without a trace, she was left only with questions.

“I’ve always had a dog, they are a part of my family,” said Shmyr, a West Kelowna resident. “I feel lost without a dog.”
Last Thursday, a co-worker told Shmyr a friend was trying to get rid of her two dogs and asked if Shmyr might be interested in them.
“She sent me pictures, and I said, ‘they’re so cute, they’re exactly what I’m looking for,’ so I asked her a few questions via text message and asked if I could come see them.”
Shmyr scheduled an appointment for that evening, but the other woman later rescheduled for Friday.
“On Friday at about 3:30, I texted her and said I’ll come shortly after I get off work at 4:30, and she sent me a message back saying the dogs were no longer available and it’s a really long story,” said Shmyr. “I said that’s too bad, and I hope it’s a good story.”

The woman replied back saying one of the dogs had gotten out and had been taken by dog control.
“Then she said she can’t bare to have them separated, so she was going to bring the other dog to dog control.”
When Shmyr got in touch with her again via text message after work, the woman said she had already taken the other dog to dog control.

On Saturday, Shmyr called dog control to inquire about the dogs to see if she could adopt them.
“The guy basically shrugged me off and said the dogs are no longer at our facility.”
Shmyr then called Paws it Forward Dog Rescue, Okanagan Small Dog Rescue Society and the SPCA, but no one knew anything about the dogs.

“I just find it so disheartening,” said Shmyr. “It’s like, what happened to them? How come I don’t have the option to look at them and take them?”

Shmyr’s last dog died in May 2015, and she was looking forward to finally having a dog in her life again.
“It was very traumatic for me,” she said. “Just within the last month, my husband and I decided we were ready to get another dog. I was planning on spending the weekend with them. You get all these ideas in your head of what you’re going to do, but then it didn’t happen.”

Shmyr is still hoping to locate the dogs and bring them home with her.
“The dog control website says the dogs go to the SPCA when the SCPA has room, so I’m going to call them every day,” she said.

Female black dog with no dog tag was found March 7, 2016, and is at RDCO Dog Pound now

She was found on Shalal Road about 2pm coming out of the yard from the second house on the right from the end of Shalal Road.  We were turning around and this girl came running out onto the road.  We couldn't see anyone around and the dog was around the wheels of the vehicle so we parked until we knew it would be safe, but that was taking a while and we couldn't see anyone, so we went knocking on doors but never found anyone home, just dogs barking inside those homes when we knocked.  While we were standing in front of this dog on Shalal Road contemplating what to do for her, RDCO CAO Brian Reardon happened to call us back to say that RDCO will only attend to at large dogs if they are a safety issue.  Brian Reardon was calling us to let us know that our dog complaint about the two at large dogs we seen a couple days earlier would not be acted on.  I said well I just happen to be standing in front of a safety issue for this dog because nobody seems to be home, and this is a rural area where a small dog like this is coyote food.  Brian Reardon didn't seem to care and said he was leaving the dog there because it wasn't a safety issue.  The dog was shivering cold, so we bundled it up with all its burrs stuck to its stomach and legs, and tucked it under our coat and took it along with our large dog in the vehicle too, and we went home.  The little dog growled at the big dog trying to sniff so we told our dog (the bigger dog) to stay away and we took our dog home and then took the found dog to RDCO pound where she was accepted.  If you care to call RDCO CAO Brian Reardon because you would want RDCO to care about your dog instead of leave it to be coyote food, you may want to give Brian Reardon a phone call at 250-763-4918.  CAO Brian Reardon is the top head of dog control, then there is Mary Jane Drouin under him and then under both of them is Diane Mernick.  Brian Reardon may try to pass you off to dog control like he does with us, but don't let that deter you, because it is Brian Reardon who is ultimately responsible.  After the dog was warmed up, treated, and delivered to RDCO Dog Pound, we left a message on RDCO CAO Brian Reardon's answering machine saying that there is a new dog control officer for this area and she is free, and that RDCO dog manager said on audio at Feb 22, 2016 RDCO Board meeting that at large dogs are a safety issue, and Brian Reardon says different, and that RDCO is confusing me and that I didn't think they know if they are coming or going down there.

Alright people open your hearts and your home for this lovely lady. She was abandoned out Westside Road and is in desperate need of a home. I was informed and plan on picking her up later today if I can find her I do not have the means to keep her I have two dogs and live in a building with a max. Even if you could foster her that would be great. I don't know much information on her aside from General location and according to construction works was kicked out of a vehicle late last night. And is friendly. Pm me if you can help

If you know who owns this dog and you are not on facebook, please contact us here and give us a phone number we can call.  We can get in touch with Cassie York for you.

Apparently she is still at large, because someone in the area said that they think she lives in the area and is around the school bus when it comes, so is keeping his eye out today.  If this is your dog, you should keep your eye on this one, or you may loose her, she is trying to get into vehicles.

Unidentified Dog Now with SPCA

An unidentified, male Poodle mix dog nicknamed ‘Buddy’, is doing much better and is now in the care of the Kelowna SPCA.

Even with local and provincial media coverage, the owner of the dog has not been identified. Until this afternoon, the injured dog received care from the Regional District of Central Okanagan. Under the RDCO Dog Regulation and Impounding Bylaw No. 366, if a dog is not claimed within 72 hours of coming into the care of Dog Control, the Regional District assumes responsibility for the dog.

Communications Officer Bruce Smith says, “We’re surprised that ‘Buddy’s’ owner hasn’t come forward, but want to thank everyone who has contacted our Dog Pound staff for their concern since we began publicizing the dog on Friday afternoon. There’ve been offers of financial support for medical care as well as people willing to adopt the dog. Since a new owner will be needed, the Regional District has transferred the dog to the care of the Kelowna branch of the BC SPCA, which will at an appropriate time facilitate adoption.” So far this year the Regional District has transferred over 50 unclaimed dogs to the SPCA for adoption.

The dog was initially picked up late Friday morning by Dog Control staff after receiving a call from a Hein Road resident that the dog was in their backyard and was bleeding. It suffered head and shoulder injuries, thought to be the result of being hit by a vehicle.

Smith adds, “We want to assure everyone that from the outset, the dog has been receiving appropriate and constant care at a veterinary clinic. It received initial treatment to stabilize and help it rest comfortably and on Friday evening on the advice of the RDCO veterinarian, underwent further surgery to fix its damaged shoulder and facial injuries. The great news is that we understand the initially suspected facial fracture was not as serious as had been thought and the dog is doing much better, allowing the transfer to the SPCA.”

When the dog was found it was wearing a black nylon collar, but unfortunately there was no license to help identify it and reunite it with its owner. As well, despite several checks, no tattoo or microchip were found.

Dog licences may be purchased in person at any local government office in the Central Okanagan. Locations are available in the Dog section of the Regional District website That’s where you’ll find other information about the Regional Dog service and what to do if you lose or find a dog.

The male poodle, nicknamed Buddy, is now in the care of the Kelowna SPCA. The dog was found injured last week, and efforts to find its owner have been unsuccessful despite considerable local and even provincial news coverage.
"We're surprised that Buddy's owner hasn't come forward, but we want to thank everyone who has contacted our dog pound staff for their concern," said regional district spokesman Bruce Smith.
"There have been offers of financial support for medical care, as well as people willing to adopt the dog," he said. The SPCA will now facilitate an adoption when the time is right for little Buddy to get his forever home."
Every year, the regional district transfers more than 50 unclaimed dogs from the pound to the SPCA for adoption.
Buddy's plight garnered extra special attention because a heart-tugging picture of the dog, shown with a bloodied face, was released by the regional district.
