Mammut: Lost Dog Reunited in Aurora, ME!

“Mammut was out in our blueberry field with my husband (she eats the berries right off the bush!) and when my husband looked up, she was nowhere to be found. She had never disappeared before, so we think she may have chased a rabbit or some other little animal.

Mammut ran north, approximately 30 miles according to verified sightings. Then, she apparently turned back southwest, eventually coming to a lake. An eyewitness saw her get into the lake and swim out toward a small island. He had seen the missing alert on Facebook and recognized her.

He then contacted another woman who had been following the disappearance on Facebook, who arranged to have a boat go out and check the island. She was found wet and huddled inside an abandoned shed on the little island. Wow! They loaded her in their boat, took her home and contacted us. UnREAL!!!

We got her home and could not be more grateful for all the people who looked for her, who got the word out by sharing her missing post on Facebook, and gave us moral support during the search. There is absolutely no doubt that the exposure her missing status received from PawBoost helped.

I would recommend PawBoost. When your pet is lost, time is of the essence. Getting the word out, fast, is so important. It may be the difference between your dog coming home or not. PawBoost really helped with that and I wouldn’t hesitate to call on them again. The volunteers and the assistance are incredible.”

Luna: Lost Cat Reunited in Edmonton, AB, Canada!

“Luna snuck out when our door accidentally opened (it wasn’t catching). I was waiting in the backyard doing homework to see if she would come home. Sure enough, 2 days later she came home. PawBoost was helpful for me because it gave me a sense of security knowing I was not alone.

Seeing others become reunited with their loved ones was incredibly helpful when I felt lost and hopeless. PawBoost has great resources to follow when you lose a pet such as checking databases, putting up posters etc. I am grateful for the support during the tough time and beyond ecstatic to have my Luna Tuna back.”

“Riley went missing one Sunday evening when he ran out the door of our home. Initially though concerned I wasn’t extremely afraid because in the past, a neighbor would always find him and call me (he had plenty of identification tags on his collar). Well a couple of hours passed and I couldn’t locate him and no one called so I began to panic at this point.

The next morning with barely any sleep I awoke and immediately began to call and report him missing. I made copies of flyers to post and got to work posting them. Calling every place I could think of to see if he had been brought in or picked up. Hoping and praying he’d show up or someone would call. It wasn’t until late Monday afternoon that I found out about PawBoost while sharing with my friend what happened the day before.

Immediately I got home from work and went online and posted Riley’s information and picture. I kid you not, not even 10 minutes passed and a text came in with a picture of my Riley asking, ‘I’ve seen your missing dog on a Facebook post, is this your dog?’ His collar and tags had all been removed! I screamed and responded yes of course along with a million thank you’s.

The person was a volunteer for the Tucson trap & rescue. She told me she was going to send a text message to the person who had him in their care and they would reach out to me. About 15 minutes later, I received a text from the person who had Riley, she explained he had no collar on and was nice enough to send me a picture of him laying on her couch.

I was so thrilled and overjoyed and thanked her immensely for taking care of him for me and we made arrangements to pick him up. If it weren’t for PawBoost I really don’t believe Riley and I would have been reunited, especially without his tags. I owe an enormous amount of gratitude to PawBoost and everyone who helped make this possible.”

“Ellie escaped from our fence after we had a friend watching her. She’s timid and shy, and saw an opportunity and bolted out. Ellie and I were reunited by a man that worked at a property of about 15 acres. My friend had gone to places nearby our house and wrote her name and number down if anyone saw a dog.

A gentleman guided me to where he saw her run away from him and I just started running and yelling her name but saw nothing. I ran about a mile, stopped, and looked over to see she was hiding. She looked at me and I hopped over barbwire and fell to the floor hugging her.

I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to anyone that is missing a dog or finds a stray dog. It gets the word out, it’s a huge community and after missing a dog it’s the number 1 resource I will keep to help others out. It’s like a social media for animals. It’s personal, and there’s nothing better than helping people get reunited with their fur family. Thank you again!”

Dixie: Lost Dog Reunited in Oak Park, IL!

“We accidentally left the front door unlocked and the door was ajar from 11 AM until 3 PM. We have NEVER done this before. I guess we were in a rush and thought the other would lock the door. PawBoost was recommended to me by a friend. We posted our contact info, Dixie’s picture and all relevant location info.

After 36 hours of endless searching through all means possible, we got a call from an angel of a man who was able to get close enough to read Dixie’s name on her tag. He read her name, typed it in on Facebook and up popped Dixie’s PawBoost post with my contact info. We met up with him 5 minutes later and were overjoyed with our Dixie reunion. Tears of joy mixed with laughter and happy barks filled the sidewalk where I fell to my knees to hug our girl!

I seriously had my doubts we’d ever see Dixie again. She’s a pit mix and we live not too far away from an area of Chicago where, because of her breed, would be a hot commodity. But there was no time to be negative. Every minute ticked by was precious search time wasted if we did nothing. So we did it all, handmade fliers, called the police, searched shelters, posted on many IL missing dog sites and PawBoost.

PawBoost was how that kind man was able to get my cell number and contacted me immediately. I have been blessed by angels looking over our girl and will forever be grateful. Thankfully PawBoost was recommended to me by a friend and I whole heartedly recommend PawBoost!”

  • Veterinarians and dog shelters and rescue leagues and animal lovers use paw boost and any means to scan for missing dogs and cats and pets. So many Paw boost pets in our area are relocated. So I know it helps a lot! And Fast!

    • Loved reading about all the happy endings! They are family members, just as people are. Its heartbreaking to loose a family member. All it takes is one person seeing a lost dog and reporting where it was seen at. All it takes is a few seconds to report what you have seen. I was blessed to be part of serviceman and his service dog being reunited. A huge Mastiff was laying at my gate. I could look in his eyes and knew he was gentle. I keep him inside my gate until ,he was found. The soldier was visiting from another town, but God knew that they needed each other! Went to web site for missi g dogs.

  • This page is great for helping bringing displaced pets back home….

    • Hi you havey permission to run lucys storey. The tips were very helpful fimding her. She is a small grey short hair tabby. Very common. Unfortunately the social media comtacted me along with mailbox many other cats. Lucy came home 8 days later. I am very gtateful for the advice to fond her way home Jackie Serwa

  • It’s wonderful to see all the reunited pets in other areas but I would like to see more of the NJ successful reunions, as I try and post most of them on fb.

    • Yes.Paw Boost is great and other sites.I share every lost animal on Facebook and I always tell people to walk and call,check sheds and garages and put fliers on mail boxes and ring the shelters and vets.

    • I think it is that most of the New Jersey shelters do not keep lost and found records and service so many areas that pick up lost dogs and somehow miss when the owners call. they should be told to look at all local shelters regularly with their own eye–it is often the only way these dogs can be reunited. Pets wander out of their shelter’s service area and the owners do not look at all the shelters. Finding a lost pet isn’t easy and that is why it saves their lives to be micro chipped and wear a tag with their name and phone number and even printed in indelible ink on the inside. You have to be extremely proactive to find a lost pet, dog or cat, in New Jersey. Please tr hard–your pet loves you!!!

  • I always share the lost pets on my facebook. They go into my page and then when a new found comes in I check to see if it is one that I saved. I hope my cat never needs Paw boost but it is wonderful that it is available.

  • Such wonderful heartfelt stories! Love this!!❤️👍

  • Pawboost helped find my Max. I posted other places but I kid you not the moment I posted with Pawboost the support started flowing in. Even emotional support helps when you are desperate also it soothes you a little to actually have people backing you up in your search. Within an hour and 45 minutes Max was found and it was a pawboost post that brought him home. Max was getting his favorite treat “chicken bites” from Whataburger before we knew it. What a relief. Thank you Pawboost for bringing my baby home and Max A Million Butternuts is more than grateful. 💖

  • Please encourage all pet owners to micro chip their pet–it saves so many lives. Also, go in person to all local shelters and look with our own eyes. Cats get closed in garages, sheds and basements and even elevator stops in basement and if they get out, they have to be found. Finding a lost pet is so difficult and Pawboost really does a great job. The shelters are filled with lost pets, sometimes it takes weeks before they end up in a shelter–that is why it is so important to look on a regular basis. I was a volunteer for years and saw so many things, people need the right advice early on and they need recalls and support or their pet will have less of a chance to go home.

  • Please remember to chip your pets…thank you!!
