Federal Way-based Missing Pet Partnership says they might be forced to close on July 1 if they don’t get donations of at least $6,000.

The nonprofit organization, dedicated to helping families who've lost a pet, says although requests for assistance in searching for lost dogs and cats have increased, donations have plummeted.

"We finally have a great group of volunteer pet detectives and six search dogs trained to find lost pets. It's frustrating to know that 13 years of hard work could come to an end," said founder and pet detective Kat Albrecht.

Last July 4th Last July 4th, Missing Pet Partnership set up a booth at the Seattle Animal Shelter and offered free assistance to the public. They ended up helping more than 30 families who had lost a dog or cat, with 80 percent of the lost dogs and 81 percent of the lost cats recovered.
