Feeling kind of wiped today, so a short update this time — first of all, thank you for all of your continued support and offers of help! We really appreciate everything you’re doing and that you’re offering to take on even more. We feel really lucky to have so many people in our corner rooting for Marisol’s return.
I’ve been talking to our dog rescuing experts about things like feeding stations and tracking. We have three go to people right now, all of whom have years of experience rescuing wandering dogs like Marisol, but they come at it from different angles and will at times defer to each other’s expertise, so we’ve been piecing together next steps.
The consensus right now is that feeding stations are a shot in the dark until we have more information, and it’s worth trying to confirm/eliminate some of our data points with a tracker so that we can narrow our focus. The recommendation is still NOT to attempt to follow Mari’s path because we don’t want to bump her out of any pattern she may have established. Instead we’ll go to areas where sightings and tracks have been reported from the past two weeks to see if we can confirm some of them.
We’ve set a time to do this over the weekend, once the storm passes. Hopefully Mari has a good spot to hunker down and stay warm!
