OKLAHOMA CITY -- Karin TarQwyn and her team of canine detectives are back in Oklahoma City to help locate pets that went missing after last week's devastating wildfires.

TarQwyn has trained her dogs to help rescue missing pets. She says her services are in high demand after several pets went missing in last week's fires. TarQwyn has posted pictures and reward information for the pets on her Web site, lostdogrewards.com.

NEWS 9 followed along with the "pet detectives" as they followed the trail of missing pets last month. Meet the team and see how they work.

TarQwyn helped families who lost thier pets in the fires that swept across the state earlier this month.

Tarqwyn says she rarely works fire scenes, and says they do present some added challenges for her dogs, but she proceeded, undaunted.

"We're going to do everything we can to get these dogs home, but this is not a typical situation," Tarqwyn said.
