Kathy 'Kat' Albrecht is a police detective-turned-pet detective and the founder of Missing Pet Partnership, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reuniting lost pets with their families. Missing Pet Partnership has formed the first-ever lost pet search-and-rescue team (in Seattle, WA) and hopes to develop similar teams nationwide.
Kat pioneered the cross application of law enforcement investigative techniques and technologies to solve lost pet investigations and is widely known as an authority on training search dogs to track lost pets. Since 1997, she has trained the majority of all operational pet detectives in the USA, Canada, and even Ireland.
Kat and her search dogs have appeared on Animal Planet programs and articles about her work have appeared in People, Reader’s Digest, and Parade. Kat is the author of two books: The Lost Pet Chronicles and Dog Detectives: Train Your Dog to Find Lost Pets. She is currently crafting Bloodhound Love, a romance/mystery novel for teens.
