We Are PawBoost
This is our story
It all began with a dog.
One evening in September of 2014, disaster struck. Ramsay – the dog/beloved child of Clayton’s friend – got hit by a car, spooked, and bolted off into the night.
Ramsay was nowhere to be found.
The search was on.
They searched late into the night, spending hours knocking on doors, driving the streets, calling out Ramsay’s name.
In the early hours of the morning, a miracle happened. Ramsay came home on her own – shaken, but unhurt.
But what if...?
The whole experience left an impression. What if they hadn't been so lucky, and Ramsay hadn't come home on her own? Could there be a better way to alert the community, instead of relying on methods that have been around since the 1950s?
PawBoost was born
Clayton teamed up with his friend and biz-tech whiz Tim to build that better way. PawBoost uses Facebook to get lost & found pet alerts in front of the local pet lovers who want to help. PawBoost Alerts are now seen millions of times every single day, leading to thousands of happy reunions.
479,312 reunited pets and counting!
Clayton has been an animal lover from day one, growing up alongside his best friend Jake, the sweetest (and most doofy) yellow lab. When not working on PawBoost, he can be found hanging out on his front porch with a lap-full of his cat, Socks.
Tim brings a passion for tech, finance, and entrepreneurship with a good cause. He is our resident pet-sitter, foster parent, and (his favorite) dog walker.

A long time programmer and fellow pet lover, Spiro brings his experience to the team so we can manage our tech stack even better. He's got two chiuauas (Ruby and Henry) and an airedale terrier (Bentley) who help him code very day. His daughter (Georgia) sometimes assists.
