Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"I was out of town for the day and a friend was keeping an eye on my babies. They were let out for a potty break when a thunder/lightening/hailstorm hit. Keiki got scared, slipped under the gate and ran. Fortunately, I was only about 20 minutes from returning home when I got the message that she got loose. There were 4 vehicles out looking for her to no avail, so we gave up with the thought that someone must have picked her up.
After getting back to the house I started looking online for ways of locating her. I posted on Facebook, Craigslist and a few other places then came upon PawBoost. The PawBoost posting went out and within 15 minutes I received a message that she had been found and where I could get her. She unfortunately spent the night at the Humane Society, but at least she was safe. She is now home, fed and resting.
I don’t feel that the postings I on my own did much in helping find her. I truly believe that PawBoost’s network of great people that are compassionate toward pets and their owners made the difference in locating her as quickly. I most likely would have spent a sleepless night worrying myself sick not knowing where my little girl was without you. Thank you all so much."

"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!"

"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."

"I saw a dog running into oncoming traffic and cars swerving to avoid hitting him. No one stopped but me and another woman I did not know. We tried to capture him, but he was disoriented and untrustworthy of us, so he kept running away.
The woman I was with, unfortunately, had to leave but I couldn’t let him be in danger like this. I followed him for about 10 more minutes. I called him in a sweet tone, patting my lap and making kissing noises. This got him to come. I used to work at a vet and for the longest time, kept a leash in my car. It was useful today.
I used the leash and he hopped right in my car. I gave him some water and took him to be scanned for a microchip but was unsuccessful. I posted him on PawBoost and Facebook and within 6 hours the owners actually posted his picture as lost on the platform too! They contacted me and headed towards the shelter to pick Bear up where he had been safe and sound!
PawBoost really expedited this lost and found process by a long shot. People on the app are eager to share and with these active members we found Bear's owners quickly. Thank you so much. I would recommend this to anyone who has lost or found a pet."

"Tesla dug a hole in the back gate of our yard and wriggled her way out. We were gone all day because the entire family was in a wedding and when we got back in the evening she was gone. Our security cameras showed she left around 10 am.
I posted on Facebook and then my son found PawBoost and posted Tesla's disappearance. Within minutes a woman by the name of Tracey was texting me and helping me find Tesla. She's a Rescue Squad member of PawBoost and it's her passion to help others become reunited with their dogs.
She texted back and forth with me until almost midnight when we saw Tesla's listing of intake at the OC animal shelter in Tustin. She made some phone calls for me and told me what documents I needed to take to retrieve Tesla.
I would 100% recommend PawBoost to anyone that has lost a pet. I had immediate responses and shares. If it wasn't for us posting on PawBoost and Tracey reaching out we may not have found her as quickly as we did."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Tesla's alert. A special thank you to Tracey for helping this family reunite with their sweet pup :)
"Marley escaped from the deck - he likes to be outside, watching all the critters and birds. He must have seen something he wanted to chase and jumped off the deck! We searched the backyard - knowing he likes to explore the wooded area behind the fence.
He may have chased a critter in a rock hole, over a dry ravine, or next to the open sewer drain. He wasn’t seen in the drain. When turned, he was looking out of a rock hole - stuck inside.
How he turned around only he knows. PawBoost helped in all the support, ideas of how to bring him home and sharing the post tremendously! Thank you!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Marley's alert. His family is so happy he’s home safe!
"We let Jade run around the farm when we are home. One Saturday, however, we forgot to put her away before taking my kids to a birthday party. My husband saw her running, what looked like to our house, when he was going to pick the kids up from the party, however, she never returned.
We drove for hours and days calling her name and looking on gravel roads, but she was no where to be found. We then placed fliers around town (5 miles from our house) and used PawBoost and other sites to help get the word out. PawBoost gave us peace of mind that her picture was out there and people were seeing her was just what we needed.
Thankfully, after 11 long days, she walked right up to our back door. She was skinny, had a ton of stickies in her hair and a few cuts, but she came home, and is happy and healthy with us again! Thank you PawBoost for helping us to feel comforted we were doing EVERYTHING we could to get her back home to us!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Jade's alert. She made her way home and her family is so tearfully happy!
"Montana went missing one Thursday morning after there were people working in our farm yard. We noticed after the workers left, that she wasn’t here. Montana never strays far from our farm yard so we were alarmed that she didn’t appear after a couple of hours. I contacted the people that were working and they didn’t have anything to report besides the fact that she was there while they were working.
We contacted all of the neighboring farms and my friend posted for me on PawBoost. A response on PawBoost reporting she was seen a couple of miles west of here made us aware of where to search. We found out that a neighbor had seen her while he was harvesting and she was seen at our local grain elevator.
We were very thankful for the PawBoost posting as there had been a deceased German Shepherd on the highway a couple of miles north from our farm. My husband had gone and picked up the dog from the highway so we could determine if it was our dog. This dog did not have a microchip and Montana does.
We are very thankful for all the responses we received and I would highly recommend PawBoost to anyone with a missing or found pet. We are so happy to have Montana home."

"Archer and his brother Tribble are both rescues and they are basically twins. Archer is our scaredy cat, and Tribble is our brave little lion. Tribble likes to go outside in the backyard and watch me water my plants. Archer follows along cautiously. I went inside for awhile and the rain started one Monday. Tribble meowed at the door as usual and I quickly opened the door and Archer was not with him.
The whole family panicked because we all know how Archer gets scared so easily. We frantically looked for him to no avail. I posted his picture all over social media, found PawBoost and put Archer on it. Finally a neighborhood resident saw Archer's photo and found him crying under her shed but she could not catch him. She contacted me that she found him and I quickly drove to her address.
I had Tribble with me and I heard Archer's light cries when I called him but he would not come out. Tribble finally cried out to his brother and Archer began crying really loudly and trying to get out through a tiny hole. I started pulling the bricks out and slid him from under the shed through the soft mud. He was free and we finally had our baby home... never to venture in the backyard again!
I would recommend PawBoost because you never know who could run into your fur babies when they are afraid and alone. Having as many people as possible alerted is the only way they will get back home safely. Archer is home safely and happy again."

"Kodak went missing one Monday by someone leaving my front door open and him sneaking out. I didn't realize he wasn't inside until I tried feeding him and his brother Blaze later that night. I was worried sick about him. I left food and the litter box outside in hopes that he would be able to sniff out his scent. Blaze and I went looking for him all around our neighborhood, but nothing.
I posted on PawBoost and other websites and called shelters, but I hadn't heard anything. Almost 2 weeks had gone by without Kodak and the whole household was upset and missing him. I knew he was lost out there somewhere and had to get to the bottom of it. I started typing up a flyer to print the next day and handed it out to the neighbors and stapled around the area.
When I was done with the flyer, I emailed it to my dad for approval on how it looked. I was going through my email and got a message from PawBoost with a picture of a grey cat (not Kodak) asking if this was him. After declining the photo I continued to the website and into the lost & found database. I was sort of hopelessly browsing, scrolled down, and there he was.
A picture of my baby looking handsome as ever! All the horrible thoughts that had gone through my head of him being hurt were finally lifted off my shoulders! As I looked closer at the post, I saw it was posted earlier the same day. I got the phone number of the person, called immediately and rushed over to save Kodak.
Our house is alive again and we are all reunited as a family. I would definitely recommend PawBoost as a tool in finding your missing pet or finding the home for someone's lost pet! I will be posting if I see any strays around to pay it forward and I will forever thank the kind lady for making it her priority to find the owner of my sweet baby. He is my little fluffy angel."

"One morning we woke up and our door was wide open, and Ricky was no where to be found. We both checked to make sure the door was closed and locked the night before but somehow it was open in the morning (we're still trying to figure that one out).
My very kind neighbor borrowed a live trap from a friend just to catch my cat and within 4 hours Ricky was back home safe and sound. He has a few battle wounds but he's okay and very glad to be back home!
I would most definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend! A lot of people shared from PawBoost so they definitely helped with getting people to keep an eye out for him!"

"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."

"Congas and Shorty went missing when they escaped from our ranch by digging a hole under the fence. They love to wander together since they were brought to this world. They were reunited with our family thanks to PawBoost!
A young lady that happens to work at an animal hospital saw our PawBoost alert and soon realized it was the same two puppies she had received an email about. She contacted me with the information I posted.
I would recommend PawBoost to everyone after this experience! There's no words that can describe how grateful we are! This is a picture of when we were able to bring them home. Again, I'm forever grateful for this great help!"

"Brandi is new to our family. My husband opened a gate to load the whole family into our car and she bounded out right into the street and into an oncoming car. She didn't get knocked down (we think she ran into the car, rather than the car running into her) and went running through the neighbor's yard. We couldn't keep up or catch her. We went looking with the help of so many neighbors and strangers until it was dark.
One of the first comments I got from the PawBoost post was from a woman who gave me very good advice about leaving items with our scent and the dog's scent around our yard. I was sure this new dog would not find her way home to us, but I took the advice anyway. At 2:30am, nine hours after she went missing, our sweet dog came home. Miraculously, she was also uninjured.
Even if our Brandi didn't make it home, the comments and peace of mind that came with all the shares and people reaching out with compassion and advice was enormously helpful to me personally. Thank you PawBoost!"

"Finn is new to PA just 2 days in after coming up from South Carolina where he was abandoned outside on a lumber chain. So he is very scared and skittish. We were walking one morning and I was picking up his waste when he got spooked and the leash went right out of my hand.
I was so stunned he was so fast and I went to stop a car coming and in just 5 seconds he was out of sight and in the woods. PawBoost was recommended by the Home At Last rescue and your list of things to do immediately helped me calm down enough and leave the woods to quickly get flyers out and involve the neighborhood.
That is what ultimately saved him. A neighbor on the other side of the woods saw him and called me after I gave him the flyer. I am so very thankful for all your help."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Finn's alert. Finn is home safe and sound :)
"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."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Mammut's alert. She came home tired and hungry, but is in good health :)
"Pica is an outdoor cat. She lives to be outside, and is generally very street smart and always comes home for meals and bedtime. One day she just never came in, and we knew right away something had happened. She loves her food time and snuggle time.
Ultimately, we were reunited when one of our neighbors gave a flyer we handed out to a friend of hers outside of our neighborhood. The friend spotted Pica a week after she'd gone missing, and gave us a call.
We were able to get into the neighborhood and just walked around calling for her, shaking treats, and using a tracker we have on her collar. I think the sound of our voices carried enough that she heard us and came out from wherever she was hiding.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone missing their pet. What I've learned from all of this is that the more exposure you can get, the better. It turned out Pica wasn't as close to home as we thought, and getting people from other areas in town to look for her was a huge help. I also posted updates every single day, to remind people that she was still missing, and our hearts were still aching for our girl."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Pica's alert. She is home safe, eating and drinking, napping, and purring. She is so happy to be home, and her family is unimaginably grateful for this amazing community :)
"Beni went missing at our cottage in Matlock. We loved the freedom to allow our cats to roam loose there, as they go out on leashes at home. Beni was happily going in and out of the cottage like a yoyo for about 6 weeks. One Sunday morning our friends saw him in their yard, then suddenly he was gone! Our fear was that he may have been locked in a shed or garage as people closed up properties for a long weekend.
We called and called for him. Then searched the area, spoke to people, banged on buildings and rattled treats. A week later with no sign of him we put up posters around the village and at the community mailboxes. We then reached out to our vet, Wpg Humane Society, and online lost cat services where we were referred to PawBoost.
I was amazed at how many clicks, and shares showed up through PawBoost! PawBoost allowed me to reach out to concerned animal lovers in a 10 mile radius, which greatly increased our chances of seeing our beloved pet again. As it turns out a lovely lady called Janet saw Beni's poster while collecting her mail.
On Friday the 13th (our lucky day!) She recognized our cat in her yard at the north end of Matlock looking hungry and lost. Bless her heart she phoned us and continued to put food out for him. My husband was able to find him in the nearby bush that Sunday night.
PawBoost allowed us to reach so many more people than a manual search would have reached. I received emails from animal lovers watching for him. Thank you PawBoost! We are so happy to have Beni back with his forever home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Beni's alert. A big THANK YOU to ALL the concerned people who kept their eyes and ears open looking for Beni :)
"How Clover escaped will always be a bit of a mystery. Sulcata tortoises are like little bulldozers and often break through fencing or tunnel out. Our yard didn't show evidence of either however. We ultimately think our gate wasn't fully latched or it was opened by someone unsuspectingly. We have a lock on it now!
After being lost for 3 nights Clover was finally spotted trying to cross a busy street around a quarter mile from our home. Luckily, some awesome people stopped to pick him up. One of them had seen the missing poster information and we were reunited minutes later.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend. I was so surprised to see Clover's information had already been sent to some local shelters when we went to notify them and the Facebook post was shared over 100 times. The process of posting and updating was super easy too. Thank you PawBoost!!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Clover's alert. His family is over the moon to be back with their big shelled baby :)
"Winston slipped out the front door of our home when my roommate stepped out late Wednesday night. It was dark and our front lights had burned out a few days prior. My roommate is also blind in one eye so she didn't see him. I noticed he didn't come for breakfast in the morning, but didn't think much of it as he sometimes doesn't come. We got worried when my roommate got up a couple of hours later and he didn't come behind her.
We found Winston after following a lot of the advice we got, such as looking for him at night. Our neighbors also advised us to follow the neighborhood stray, Frankie, as he is very friendly and often finds and brings home lost cats in the area. He was found under our neighbor's porch and Frankie was also in the yard. Winston got frightened and ran when we tried to lure him out. My roommate followed Frankie and he led her to the bush he crawled under.
I would recommend PawBoost, because you guys did an amazing job of posting him right away! He got a lot of shares and a lot of hopeful wishes. Had he actually strayed far from home, all those things make me hopeful that we would have found him either way."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Winston's alert. He is so happy to be home!
"Indy went missing one Sunday but we did not notice he was gone until early the next morning. If the door opens to allow the dogs out he will dart for the door. We have let him in the backyard while we sit out there and then call him or get him to come in. BUT this time none of us were aware that he was out.
We scoured the neighborhood, called and called him all day and even into the night until about 11 pm. We put up about 35 posters on subdivision exits and stop signs. We posted on Craigslist, Nextdoor, Facebook, Facebook market place and PawBoost. We phoned every vet in the area in the case he was brought in.
The next day, we searched and called for him again all over the neighborhood. No luck but we got a troll from Craigslist saying they found our cat. After trying to phone the number and it would not go through, we then asked them to send a picture, which they would not do. They wanted to call me and my Google account was sending me a verification code and they asked for it.
They asked again so they could call me and I told them they should be ashamed of themselves. I accused them of trying to get into my account by abusing my misfortune. They went silent... THIS is a good lesson to offer to folks because I know that you really want to believe they have your missing fur family and might be inclined to give them your private info. DON'T DO IT.
The following day, I began to believe he had found a new home since we saw no evidence of the unthinkable. That evening just after coming in from walking the streets shaking his favorite treat box I get a notification from Nextdoor. Dana D sent a message saying she thought she located our kitty.
He was meowing at the screen door wanting to come in. They let him in with a piece of turkey, called their friend who volunteers for a pet adoption group and BAM we have him back. He was only around the corner."

"My sister was watching Apollo for me while I was having renovations done on my house. I live 4.5 hours away from my sister. Apollo was with her for a week before he went missing. They had gone to church one Sunday and when they came back, they discovered he had somehow busted through their window screen.
It was very unlike him. He is almost 10 and has never run away. We aren't sure if he got spooked (it rained and thundered that day), got stuck where the window was and could only go through the screen, or if he just really wanted to come home.
My sister and parents spent hours looking for him that Sunday and Monday. When they still hadn't found him, I drove down Tuesday and spent 5 more hours looking for him and talking to people. One morning, one of my sister's neighbors called to say he saw a dog walking towards her house. We jumped in the car, and it was him! From the look of it, he was coming back.
Being able to post to PawBoost made me feel like I was actually doing something even though I was hours away. My PawBoost post showed up on a Facebook page where a lady commented on how best to look for him. Because of her comment, I felt even more that I needed to go look for him personally. She suggested I walk the area and leave my smell around so he knew where to go. I really felt he came back because of it!
I absolutely would recommend PawBoost. It made me feel like I was doing something, and I really needed to be doing something. And because of posting to PawBoost and getting the comment I did, I really believe that led to him coming home."

"Sugarplum darted out the front door after 9:30pm when I was returning with groceries. He was waiting by the front door, saw an opportunity, and ran out into the night. I received a phone call from a woman who lived a few blocks away advising a cat that matched Sugarplum’s description from some Facebook flyers.
When I couldn’t find him the next morning either, I started to make flyers and cross-post them onto sites that would accept them for missing pets. Some gentleman with a lot of Facebook followers posted a photo of a white cat that had been hanging about and asked if anyone knew if someone was searching for him. Some people put two and two together and realized it was Sugarplum.
PawBoost helped me because there were people on sites I hadn’t been to yet or had just gotten to who had already seen Sugar’s PawBoost alert and were sharing it. It made me feel better and any bit of exposure helps. I was able to make a flyer, but for someone older or someone distraught I can’t imagine being able to make my own missing flyer with any amount of ease. PawBoost does this for you. It’s bright, eye-catching, and a very decent format."

"Tiny is an indoor/outdoor cat so we never think much of him being gone all day, but he's always home at night and early morning. When we realized we hadn't seen him all day, we knew something was wrong. I made a few Facebook posts after searching our neighborhood and came up empty. Someone mentioned PawBoost, and I followed through with creating a post and then printed off 70 plus flyers for our neighborhood.
I handed them out everywhere near our house thinking someone picked him up. I even received permission from the nearby apartment complex and hung a flyer in every building. After going door to door and still coming up empty, we turned to God for help! We began praying for Tiny to return or at least get some closure of his disappearance.
Still hopeful after a week, I called all of the shelters and pounds nearby for the second time and went to visit one that had many grey tabby cats in their care. Still no Tiny.. We never gave up hope though, we continued to pray and patiently wait. One Tuesday, I received a call from a number I didn't recognize, so I just sent it to voicemail. Then, I listened to it pretty much right after, and I heard them say, 'your missing cat.' I ended the voicemail and called her back to find out what was going on.
Unsure of whether or not it was our Tiny, I drove up the street to the apartments, and there he was scared and frightened! Smaller than I remember and wouldn't come to me. With his behavior out of the normal, I called my husband to come and check him out just to make sure it was our Tiny. My husband knew right away. No doubt about it!
Tiny is still adjusting at home, recovering from his two week trauma, but is rapidly getting back to his spunky self! PawBoost helped in the way of providing a ready made flyer for me, which aided in bringing our buddy home."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Tiny's alert. He was found down the street 2 weeks and 1 day later!
"Mittenx went missing one Tuesday from our deck in a storm. He's an indoor cat but has access to a deck (open but 20 feet up) and a screened porch. We live on a 50 acre farm so we searched and searched. There is a lot of wildlife, so we couldn't really search at night too much.
My husband, a volunteer fire fighter, came home late one night from a call and thought he saw the cat in the headlights. He put out food and that food was consumed. The next morning he looked through our surveillance video and found Mittenx actually looking in my office window and talking to the other kitties through the window.
Looking back through the previous days of footage, he saw that Mittenx also made appearances that Sunday and Monday. We sat in my darkened office for a few nights and then decided to set Havahart traps with food, catnip and his toys. We got him on night 3, just as Hurricane Dorian was headed our way.
PawBoost got us started on Facebook and the alert was shared near and far. While I don't think Mittenx was ever far away, we used the alert in community poster locations and people contacted us if they saw a cat they weren't familiar with.
We did not feel alone in our 22 day search, which was way more important than I would have guessed. We talked to a lot of people and got a lot of advice. I would definitely recommend PawBoost."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Mittenx's alert. A special thank you to all the people who took a little extra time to look for Mittenx and all the lost pets out in the world :)
"Piper went missing one Sunday evening. I had just returned home from vacation and in the process of popping in and out of the house to unload the car, she slipped out. Unfortunately, with the hustle of unpacking and settling back into our home, my household didn't notice right away. It wasn't until the next morning I realized she was missing when she didn't come into my room to sleep the night before.
Piper and I were reunited after about 48 hours apart when I ran into the cat from a few houses down hanging out in my yard while I was out looking for her again. This cat had never come onto my property before, so it really caught me off guard. I gave him lots of love and was about to go on my way when I noticed that he would walk a few feet into my next door neighbor's yard (not his owner's home) and turn to look at me, staring at me intensely.
I thought this was strange, but I had a gut feeling he's leading me to Piper. And that gut feeling was right. I maybe made three steps towards him into my neighbor's yard when I heard her little cries coming from below my neighbor's deck. Low and behold, there was Piper's tiny head poking out from under the cover of their grill. I ran to her, scooped her up into my arms and ugly cried.
I owe a lot of credit to the cat from down the street, but also a lot of gratitude to the almost 200 people who shared and commented on Piper's Facebook post. The encouragement and advice of setting out the litter box helped immensely. It's wonderful to know there are so many people in my community that care about furry family members as much as I do.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost. The folks on PawBoost offer great advice and even better support. It was so reassuring to see how many people were posting Piper's sweet face over Facebook."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Piper's alert. She's a little shaken up understandably, but home safe and being showered with love :)
"The dog was found on my brother's front porch in Soddy-Daisy. He knew that we take in elderly animals so he gave her to us but in the meantime, we all searched for her owners via social media. A few weeks later we didn't have any success, so we took her to the humane society. She was very elderly, clearly traumatized and needed to be somewhere with specialized care and not in a home with my four year old and hyper Weiner dog.
A week or two later, a man emailed into PawBoost thinking this might be his wife's dog and we started texting back and forth. He gave me a description and a few pictures and I knew right away it was her. I gave him the contact information and location of his doggy and he picked her up the next day.
I am so happy for her and her owners and I am thankful for PawBoost's help! I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to a friend because it allowed sweet Tunie to be reunited with her owners and I'm sure so many other animals have been reunited as well. I could only hope that if my doggies got away, someone would help this way!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Tunie's alert. A special thank you to this Good Samaritan who never stopped looking for her owner :)
"Bennett went missing from a three story balcony one Friday afternoon. We didn't know if he jumped, hopped the stairwell, roof, aliens, portal... etc. We were very worried. We didn't know where to turn. Luckily, PawBoost was there and we uploaded a photo and description. We immediately received comments and suggestions.
It was nice to know there were people that cared and wanted to help. We searched high and low for two days. We almost had a match, but it turned out to be another cat very far away. Finally, we realized he may not have gone too far, so we sprinkled cucumber around our complex: one of his favorite treats.
Surely enough shortly thereafter he appeared in the bushes below, hesitant to come back out into the courtyard. Everyone in our complex has dogs, so it was obvious he must have been close the whole time, but scared to death to make a run for the stairs and back up to our apartment.
We lured him in with more cucumber and a can of wet food, until finally one of us got close enough to calmly pet him and be recognized. We picked him up, took him in and gave him a thorough cleaning. Other than that he looked quite fine, just shaken up a bit; no injuries. We plan on taking him to the vet as soon as possible, just to get him checked up and maybe a bath.
PawBoost was such a great help because it got the word out fast, and reminded us that there were people in the community that cared. We also liked the available upgrades, in case we had to turn it up a notch. We would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone who has lost their dear animal family member and friend.
There are other platforms out there, and we think the more you post the better, but PawBoost is the most robust solution. It offers more options, better interface and the response time is fast, just to name a few. Thank you, PawBoost!"

"Our Stella went missing sometime when we had folks trooping in and out of the house one Friday due to my kiddo's 18th birthday. She usually just hides in the basement when there are a lot of people visiting but she slipped out of the door at some point, it may have all been too overwhelming. We were especially worried since she's 100% an indoor cat with no street skills.
Once I had PawBoost's lost pet alert up and I shared it in my local social media groups, it was shared at least 160 times. Lots of folks made really good suggestions that my husband and I started trying as soon as they were made. We ended up finding her under an overgrown wood pile in the back of our property. She wedged herself under there to keep out of the heavy rains that hit our area.
I definitely would recommend PawBoost. You created a clear lost pet post and it was shared by a large number of people in my area and you kept me updated on people's ideas and other comments. Then promptly notified folks when I let you know she had been found. Thanks for helping us connect with people who had really great ideas that ended up helping us find her."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Stella's alert. She was found muddy and thirsty but uninjured :)
"I first spotted this little black cat playing with a bug in my backyard. I tried talking to the cat and he meowed at me a few times, then ran away. I later saw him eating from a bowl of kibble I keep out for some feral neighborhood cats. The little cat was easily spooked, and very skittish. I saw him eating from the bowl again the same evening, and was able to get some pictures of him. I also was delighted to see he had six toes! I knew that would be a big help in identifying him.
The next morning the cat was back to eat again. At 11am I posted his picture and info on PawBoost. Within a couple of hours I received a text from someone who thought it might be their cat. I replied it was a close match but the kitty I had seen had gold eyes, and I thought her cat's eyes seemed more green.
She then told me her cat’s eyes change colors depending on if he's inside or outside. I then learned the cat had been lost at a location less than 1/2 a mile from my home. He was accidentally let out and had been missing for a month. I also learned his name was Meowsy, he was fixed, if you meowed at him he would meow back at you, and he liked to give kisses.
About 2 hours later I spotted Meowsy again. I ran in the house to get a can of food. When I went outside, Meowsy was waiting on the back porch. Once Meowsy began to eat, I petted him a few times, then snatched him up and ran in the house with him. Once in the house I gave him some more canned food. While he ate I sat on the floor to call his people. His mom was ecstatic!
I then put Meowsy in a cat carrier and headed out on the 4 minute drive to his people. Once we arrived at the house, there were 5 excited people plus Meowsy’s sibling cat waiting to greet Meowsy. Meowsy’s mom picked him up to hold him close. He immediately pulled his mom in close with his front paws and wrapped around her neck for lots of licks and kisses!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Meowsy's alert. A huge thank you to this Good Samaritan for reuniting him with his family :)
"Whiskey bolted out of the back door at midnight one Sunday. We ran after her but she was so fast I couldn't catch her. We searched until 4am trying to find her, but because she went through neighbor's backyards it was difficult to track her down. We didn't want to enter their backyard's without permission, especially at that hour.
As I was leaving through my garage that Tuesday to hand out missing flyers and ask neighbors if I could search their backyards, there was a bird that was stuck in my garage since I had left it cracked for her to return home. As I stopped to try and help the bird I heard a MEOW IN THE GARAGE. She had wedged herself behind a large cabinet and fridge. I had to pull the fridge out and she jumped into my arms.
PawBoost was able to help me find her. Because of the Facebook post they shared, several people left helpful tips such as leaving the garage door cracked, smelly food out, her litter box out, and an article of my clothing outside. I followed every single recommendation and she came home.
I would 100% recommend PawBoost to everyone I know. It was comforting having a service to help spread the word about my furry child. Through the sharing on social media I was gifted with helpful tips that helped my baby return home. I am so thankful and grateful."

"This cat came to our covered deck. He was starving plus we have very comfy deck furniture! We didn't have to capture him as he just liked hanging out with us. We gave him food, lovin' and great nap chairs.
I posted his story and pictures on several sites. People shared posts so word was getting out. However I matched him to a lost tabby on PawBoost. The cat had gotten a lot thinner in the month it was lost however the markings looked the same. I messaged the owner with pictures but didn't receive a response.
I was concerned they were not getting messages so I called. I talked to the owner, then texted pictures to her. She tearfully replied that the cat was indeed their Buddy who had gone missing. We were elated!! The kitty is very sweet so we wanted to have him reunited with his owners!!
We would most certainly recommend PawBoost. It's a great way to reach a lot of people in a short amount of time. Also there is a great deal of cooperation, support and caring from those reading and responding to the posts. This kitty was reunited with his owners 9 hours after I signed up."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared this Buddy's alert. A purrr-fect ending!!
"Chik'n is a free roam bird in my home. She has a cage but it's always open unless I'm going to be gone for a long period of time. I had a plumber at my house and she got freaked out and started squawking to be let out of her cage. So reluctantly I let her out and told the plumber to make sure that my screen door was closed at all times. As he was leaving he accidentally dropped his toolbox, which freaked her out and she flew out the door.
I get a call about a month later from a woman that saw her on her balcony so I went over to get her. As I opened the screen door to her balcony the metal scratched together and she got scared again and flew away. I would hear her around for a few months, but I could never see her. I left her cage outside hoping she would be drawn to it but no such luck.
One Thursday night, I get a text from an unknown number with a picture of a gentleman holding a Cockatiel saying he thought they had my bird. We texted back and forth and I found out that he tried to take her to the condo's front office but she flew away while he was walking there.
The condo where this gentleman was staying is right across the street from my house! I spent the next couple of mornings hanging out in the spot where he spotted her and I dropped bird seed and just watched out for her. My plan was to do this for the next couple of weeks until she started to learn that I was bringing food and to fly down to me.
Thankfully, I didn't have to wait that long! I got a text 2 days later saying chik'n flew to their condo. I asked if they had her inside and they said yes and sent me a picture. I went over immediately and walked into their condo and started BAWLING! That was my baby!!
I WILL ABSOLUTELY recommend PawBoost to EVERYONE I know that has lost or found a pet. Because of PawBoost, I was able to reunite with my little Chik'n after 21 MONTHS!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Chik'n's alert. Reunited after 21 months!!
"Demitri accidentally got out through a hole in a window screen of the house. He was recently moved to Vermont on a temporary basis because we were having some work done on our house. Since he didn't know the area, he became lost very quickly.
After seeing some PawBoost flyers at the local humane society, I immediately signed up for the service. The first step was a social media campaign and a flyer. We used the flyer to hand out to neighbors and post on the street. One of the neighbors saw the flyer and reported that our cat was living in his barn! Our cat was rescued immediately after.
PawBoost is a worthwhile service and a complement for traditional methods of searching, posting flyers, speaking with neighbors and using other lost and found pet social media pages. It accurately captures all of the necessary information that needs to be displayed to help your animal be found."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Demitri's alert. He was missing for 29 days and was found living in a barn 1 mile away. A huge thank you to the Humane Society of Chittenden County and the Underhill Animal Control for all of their help and support :)
"We left the front door cracked open and Lucas snuck out right by us. We believe he got scared by the cars in the streets and started running. We recently moved to Moorestown, so he has not been around the neighborhood in order to be able to find his way home.
He was reported seen on PawBoost in a business center east gate. They saw his missing posting so PawBoost is the reason we were able to find him. As soon as we saw the posting we went there and were able to get Lucas home. He was hiding out in the woods. Thank you very much for your support.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost because it's easy to use, gives you all of the necessary tools to report a missing a pet and a portal to communicate with anyone that might have seen your pet. In our case that is the reason we were able to get him back."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Lucas's alert. It was a heart warming reunion for Lucas and Charlie. Charlie was camping out for 3 days in the living room window waiting for Lucas to come home :)
"Phil got out of the house while I went to town. He must have ran down the road and was picked up by a lady. She then took him to her house which is about 10 miles away. While there he jumped the fence and was gone by the next day. She soon found out I was desperately looking for my fur baby and joined the search.
It took almost 2 weeks and 25 miles to find him but I never gave up hope that we would be reunited again. I met many animal lovers through this process and I am so grateful for every share, comment, and prayer said on our behalf. At almost two weeks gone I was so sad about my missing baby but still completely devoted to finding him so I pressed on determined.
I got a message from another animal lover asking if the picture she saw was my missing pup and as soon as I saw him I started crying in joy. It was my baby, Phil. I was so relieved. I would 100% recommend PawBoost. They put his info and picture out there for everyone around this area to see. I am definitely convinced that without PawBoost my fur baby would not be home in bed now. Thank you to all who helped."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Phil's alert. His family couldn't have found him without each and everyone of your contributions. You have had a huge part in reuniting their family :)
