Real Life Pet Detective Wants To Bust ‘Ace Ventura’ Stereotype

CLOVIS, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A woman in Clovis, California, has a real mystery on her hands: Figuring out how to break the stereotypes people have about pet detectives.

Kat Albrecht has been hunting down lost pets since 1997 and deals with references to Jim Carrey’s Ace Ventura movies on a daily basis.

Albrecht has a good sense of humor about it, but points out that pet detective work is actually really serious.

In fact, she is so passionate about finding lost pets that she has started Pet Hunters International, a pet detective academy that trains people to in the intricacies of pet recovery.

Each four-day training course costs around $500 and Albrecht has already certified 35 detectives.

Although finding lost dogs and cats is her specialty, Albrecht also offer training on finding ferrets, snakes or hamsters.

Albrecht explains: “Essentially we are taking the same search and rescue techniques used on humans and applying them to animals.”
