Types of Traps
These are the traps that R2H uses when catching and rescuing your pet. You can rest assured we use the most humane and high quality traps in the industry.
Tomahawk Live Trap
Model 610A is a live trap designed for small to average size dogs and similar size animals. This cage trap weighs 37 lbs and measures 48L x 20W x 26H. This trap is constructed from 1" x 2" - 12 gauge galvanized wire mesh and features a rear access door for easy baiting and transfer of animals.
Fat Cat Animal Trap
The 30 Fat Cat will accommodate those cats that are simply too big for our 30LTD trap. The Fat Cat allows the animal more room to move around while captive and is suitable for smaller cats as well. This trap matches up with the T24TE Carrier and can be used to transport animals to the veterinary clinic for tagging, neutering, and/or spaying.
The Missy Trap is named for the former puppy mill dog who was captured in it after she had refused to enter a conventional small trap. The trap was designed and constructed by Retrievers founder/director, Greg James, in 2013.
Constructed of horse fence panels, which can be purchased at farm supply stores, the trap can be triggered with a variety of methods, including hanging bait, pressure plate and electromagnet release.
Because it is modular by design, the Missy Trap can be broken down flat for transport and reassembled in the field using quick clips. If the trap is needed for a giant breed dog, we have a gate panel specially designed with a taller door to accommodate Great Danes, mastiffs, St. Bernards, etc.
The Missy Trap design is freely shared in the hopes of being widely used to help more lost dogs get home. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to build your own Missy Trap to catch skittish dogs.
