Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"I found this little orange and white kitty when I was walking on a paved walking trail west of Hualapai in the wash. I went home to get food and water to bring to him. He was so appreciative. I went everyday around 12:30pm to visit and feed the kitty and my friend, Senta, went during the evenings to look after him and feed him along with her husband.
I knew this was a man's kitty because the little kitty walked directly up to my husband, Glenn, and started rubbing against his legs. We watched over the kitty along with the walkers on that particular area of the trail. We saw paper plates and food there for the kitty so he was well taken care of.
We knew we had to gain his trust in order to catch him and remove him from the area. The cat rescue ladies came out to catch the kitty but for almost a day and a half he was nowhere to be found. Finally I saw him and I think he was just as happy to see me as I was to see him. He was pretty hungry.
I had to get this kitty in my pet carrier and find out if he had a chip. He was not liking me very much when I pushed his little butt into the carrier. We took him to the Hualapai Animal Hospital and they found out that the kitty was chipped and the owner was contacted. The owner was soooooo thankful he was reunited with Tiger as the kitty had been missing for about two years.
Senta and I took turns keeping Tiger at our homes until the owner was able to pick him up. Thank you to everybody who helped this little kitty. Senta, you're a kitty angel. Thank you to all the trail walkers who left food and water and treats for this little guy. We are stronger working as a team together and we did it.
Tiger is reunited, home, healthy and safe! We did it together! Without PawBoost this might not have been a happy ending. Thanks PawBoost!"

"Bobby the dog was found at a busy intersection. He ran into the street in front of my car. I hopped out and signaled to nearby motorists to slow down so I could try to get him. I used a calm voice to call him over to me and he came over almost instantly. I took him to the Denver Dumb Friends League and as soon as I got home, posted his picture on social media, including PawBoost.
The next morning, someone commented on my post that he looked like a dog reported on PawBoost that had been lost in the same area. I reached out to the person on that listing and sure enough, it was the owner!
I would definitely recommend PawBoost. There were 122 shares in less than 24 hours and people already looking at the pages noticed the match. It was the fastest I've ever had a reunion between a lost dog and it's owner."

"Princess got out very late one night while we were feeding a community stray. We believe she was trying to chase the stray away because she does not like other cats except her brother and sister. Which honestly she just tolerates them.
We did not see her actually go outside so we did not notice she was gone until morning, but that was the only time we opened the door since the last time we saw her. She has a tendency to hide in the house to get away from her siblings so before assuming she was missing we tore our apartment apart looking in any place we could possibly think.
I got a message with a picture from someone who lived a few neighborhoods away. She found and managed to trap Princess. Princess was happy to take food from someone but would not willingly go to her. She messaged me early the next morning to ask if this was my cat and to let me know that she worked at the vet up the road and I could come get Princess anytime.
I actually happy cried when I called my husband to let him know someone had found our cat. I’m not sure what she used to get my contact information. We made many social media posts and actual flyers that we hung up in our neighborhood, along with contacting local vets, animal shelters and any place we could think to contact.
Any possible way to get the news out about a missing pet is good. I know that PawBoost helps get the word out to the most people it can and it’s definitely the easiest way to raise awareness. Just looking at the success rate alone would be the best recommendation.
My sweet girl has lost a lot of weight but after being gone a month needed absolutely no time to adjust. She is happy to be home and warm and I’m happy to have my foot warmer and the best hugger I know back!"

"I was driving to work and in the distance I saw a dog cross a pretty busy and major street. The dog was running and generally following kids on their way to school. I had my puppy in the car but I was so worried about this husky getting run over that I did a U-Turn and pulled over. I asked some of the high school kids (true heroes) to help me.
By using some food we had and another Good Samaritan that showed up with a leash, we got the dog into my car. I drove him home and put him in my patio and gave him food and water. I then listed him on various social media outlets including Facebook, NextDoor, and PawBoost.
Within 20 minutes of my posting I got messages saying the description of this dog matched one listed as lost on PawBoost. I was just beginning to scroll those postings when I got a call from the owner. The fact that my found post and the lost post were posted about the same time was very lucky. PawBoost is easy to use and successful!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared this pup's alert. This amazing community came together to reunite this sweet fur baby with its family :)
"I saw this yellow lab in the road as I was coming home. I jumped out of my vehicle and walked her quickly to the grass where it was safe away from traffic. I looked for tags and when I didn’t see any, I decided it was best to put a leash on her. I did not have a dog leash but I did have blue rope. She had a collar so I attached it properly. She was a very sweet girl.
I saw a post that recommended PawBoost for lost and found pets. I downloaded it and was very pleased at how easy it was to use. I created a Facebook post with PawBoost and I had numerous responses. Within two hours I had a name of the family this sweet girl belonged to and her family was coming to pick her up. They were so appreciative that I kept her safe.
I was grateful I was able to be there for her and have met such a sweet yellow lab named Elsa. I would absolutely recommend PawBoost! We may not be able to find and save them all but with this app we have a better chance than ever."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Elsa's alert. A special thank you to this Good Samaritan for searching for her family :)
"We aren't sure how Demon went missing. He somehow snuck out in the middle of the afternoon while my husband was asleep. Since he is a cat, we thought perhaps he would come home at some point when he got hungry. After 24 hours we got worried and I posted him missing on PawBoost. We made missing posters and hung them in our neighborhood as well.
After 48 hours had gone by, I had some messages from people on PawBoost and they pointed out a cat that looked similar to him on Henderson Animal Shelter's website. It did indeed look like him except the kitty in their picture had a black chin and mine does not. The one thing that gave him away though was his single tiny black freckle on his nostril.
We decided to go in and have a look at this kitty up close, hoping he might just had oil on his chin or dirt. Sure enough, it was him! The black spot on his chin was a scab. He had scrapped it badly on his adventure but is healing according to the vets at the shelter.
It turns out, he got so exhausted on his second day out that animal control officers were able to walk right up to him and scoop him up to bring him in. If it hadn't been for the sleuths of PawBoost, I would have never known he was at the shelter.
I will totally recommend PawBoost in the future for missing pets! They have eyes and ears everywhere apparently and they combed in places I didn't think to look. Of course we thought the shelter would call us when they found him but they actually never did. They said he had no chip but he certainly did have one and scanned it when we arrived saying, 'Oops well ok. Looks like he's yours.' PawBoost was a huge help because of this!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Demon's alert. It's so important to go in person to shelters as much as you can. Demon is safe at home resting :)
"Since getting Scooter all he’s ever known is our fenced in 2 acres that surround our house. We manually open and close our driveway gate to enter and leave the property. Apparently the latch wasn’t secure and he got out of the yard. We have several loose dogs running the neighborhood and quite frequently our dogs are challenged from outside the fence.
We have another adopted dog, Maggie who isn't quite yard trained yet. Scooter being the Heeler he is, typically runs after her. Maggie likes to stretch her legs every now and then and runs out the gate but generally comes back. We figured Scooter went after her and got mixed up with the loose dogs. We came home and found Maggie but no Scooter.
We immediately started looking for him when we discovered he was missing. After it got dark, I posted Scooter’s disappearance on Nextdoor and Facebook. The next day I called animal control to report him missing to see if he was picked up. I made up flyers and put them out in several areas nearby.
I was surfing the internet to find all the places I could post him missing and found PawBoost. I really had never heard of it before. I filled out the requested info and it was posted. I was very surprised how many comments that came thereafter from concerned pet lovers.
Every afternoon after work I searched our area starting with about a 5 mile radius. Later, I started expanding my search to about 15 miles. My wife and I talked to many people handing out flyers. On Nextdoor one of our neighbors, Payton, down the road was probably the most encouraging and said over and over she would keep her eyes open.
After putting about 500 miles on my vehicle and nearly two weeks gone by, I got a phone call saying, 'Mr. Taylor I have your dog.' Low and behold it was our neighbor Payton. She spotted him on the road about two miles from our house. After dealing with a lost pet, I would definitely use PawBoost and other avenues to find my dog. Never give up hope!"

"Puddles is an indoor/outdoor cat. In the winter he only goes out for very short amounts of time. We let him out at 6:00pm one Friday and when he wasn’t home by 6:30pm we knew something was wrong.
The people in the house behind us got home from vacation 4 days after he was missing and noticed the door had been open. Then they saw him dart by. They thought he got out but then 3 days after that (7 days missing) they spotted him in the house again. I had left a flyer in their door and they called me. I found him hiding in their basement 9 days after he went missing.
The amount of reach his PawBoost post got was phenomenal. The more people aware and keeping their eyes open the better. PawBoost knows how to spread information fast on social media!"

"We have been getting ready to move and Titan has been stressed like we are. We kenneled him in the house when we left to go to the new home. We were only gone for an hour and a half, came home and he had broken out of the kennel and opened the sliding door. He was gone.
PawBoost was extremely helpful and a fast networking tool to get help! I got a reply that someone saw him at the Everett Humane Society. So we called and left a message. Then we drove up there and sure enough there he was. We paid the doggy bail money and took him home. So grateful for your help and this outreach.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost! It's very quick and easy for people to get in contact with you or share your poster. Thank you so much PawBoost!"

"The dog was in a fairly busy intersection with four way stop signs near our house. I got out of the car to call him and he came right to me and let me put him in the car. We went to all of the homes near the intersection and no one recognized him.
Next, we went to the pet emergency clinic to see if they had a microchip scanner. They did not. We brought him home and I listed him on one lost dog website. I called the local pet store to see if they had a chip scanner. They did not.
We took him to a privately held animal shelter (the city and county animal shelters are closed on Sunday) to see if they had a scanner. They did not. They put a sign I had made in their window and listed him on another lost dog website. We checked a few more houses and put up signs around the neighborhood.
I found PawBoost and listed him on there. Within minutes, I started getting responses. A friend of the owner got in touch with her and the owner contacted me. She was able to provide enough identifying information that I knew it was her dog. She and her son picked up the dog and were so very happy to get him. She said they got the dog as a puppy right after her father passed away and that he was very special to the whole family.
I would certainly recommend your site, as it was the only success in two days of searching for the owner. The owner did say he was microchipped, but it would have been another night before we could take him to our veterinarian to have him checked. As pet owners, we appreciate your work and will certainly recommend you to anyone who has a need."

"Bean went missing in the early hours one Wednesday morning. She fell out of the window, but we're on the ground floor so no injuries! The latch gave and unfortunately it shut behind her. The window has since been repaired. One of my neighbors had her, and thankfully they subscribe to your email alerts!! They texted me as soon as they got home from work.
She has happily been reunited with her fur family, and me of course! I cannot wait to see the kids reactions. She is partial to my 15 year old niece who has special needs. She has been absolutely beside herself the last few days. I wouldn't be surprised if she wakes up and realizes she's home and doesn't return to bed.
I will continue to, and have in the past recommended PawBoost to friends, family, and neighbors. You have helped us on both ends of the spectrum, with our lost babies and found babies! All stories have had successful endings, and I credit you guys and your followers with every one of those successes.
Thank you for your work!! People who work with, care for, and serve the animals are amazing. It takes a lot of heart to do what you do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"

"Hank went in our back garden, but he didn’t come in when called. He managed to go exploring on our estate and went looking in someone’s open garage. The owner was unaware and Hank was locked in a garage for 5 days.
We were reunited as the owner of the house called us when he realized Hank was in his garage. PawBoost definitely helped as the owner knew straight away Hank was ours due to the social media coverage!
I would highly recommend PawBoost to anyone who has to go through the unfortunate issue of losing a pet. The social media coverage and wide network you provide was a huge help in making local residents around us aware Hank was missing.
We are over the moon our main man is home again and thanks once more to PawBoost."

"Moonie went missing one Tuesday morning. It was like any other morning, or so I thought. I went to feed Moonie and his brother and to my surprise, Moonie was nowhere to be found. I knew something was wrong right away because he always stays in our backyard if he isn't inside, but he wasn't there.
I searched everywhere! I talked to all of my neighbors, walked the neighborhood and nothing. I was so sad. Even his brother was crying. I didn't give up hope! I found the PawBoost website and felt hopeful. I received such amazing support and quick feedback. It felt amazing knowing that my kitty was special to others as well as me.
After 9 days, I am so excited to report he is back home safe! He was a little hungry but no scratches or anything wrong with him. He ate and is taking a well deserved relaxing nap. I am so grateful for all of your support and for sharing the flyer and messages. It truly is a blessing! I will definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone who is looking for your loved animal. Don't give up hope. Thank you so much!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Moonie's alert. He just showed up a little hungry but safe and sound! It truly is a miracle :)
"I opened my door to take out the trash and a kitten came racing toward me, meowing and purring. He followed me all of the way to the dumpster and then back to my apartment, wanting attention and crying for help.
I didn't want to let him inside because I have two cats of my own and wasn't sure how to handle the situation. He sat at my door and cried for a bit, and then I went to give him some food and water and he was gone. I thought that was going to be the end of it.
Later that same day, I heard frantic meowing at my door again. I opened my door and he ran right inside my apartment like he owned the place. He flopped down on the floor and began to madly purr, again wanting snuggles and pets. I knew he was far too friendly to just be a stray or a feral. My heart was breaking - where was his family?
Unfortunately because of the time of night, all of the Phoenix rescues were closed as was Banfield. I had no way to check if he was chipped or to find him a temporary home. Someone recommended to me a group called Straydar. I checked to see if they had an app, and that's when PawBoost came up in the search results.
I immediately signed up for PawBoost and made a found posting. I also thought it might be smart to check the lost listings. As I was scrolling I came across a post from about a week ago, a family who had lost two kittens. Thanks to PawBoost, I was able to text the owner.
We immediately began exchanging photos. I took some of the kitten and I had the owner send me other photos that they had of Bubbles. After finding some extremely distinct markings we both determined that I had indeed found one of their beloved kittens! The family was extremely grateful to have him back.
All in all, I was extremely relieved and grateful that it all happened so quickly and efficiently, and it's all thanks to PawBoost! I really appreciate that your app was easy to use and that it had an easy way for me to contact the family."

"This dog was in the middle of the road and when I slowed down, she ran under my car. We got out and she crept over to us. We did not see anyone around so we put her in our car and brought her to the vet to check for a microchip.
I came home from the vet and began looking online for options. PawBoost immediately popped up in my Google search and I began registering the dog. A few hours later, I received a call from the owner as well as a text from someone on the site who had seen my posting as well as the owner's posting.
This person made the connection between the two of us and made contact. Within several hours, the owners and I were meeting to reunite them with their pet. I would recommend PawBoost! This was such an easy process and it worked so flawlessly that it would be the first place I would go to if ever in need again. I think everyone needs to know about this site."

"My roommate was leaving for work and Pippa slipped out beside her. We are new to the area, and I guess she wanted to explore! My roommate got her treats and leash, but by the time she turned back around, Pippa was gone.
We posted everywhere online we could think of, including PawBoost. PawBoost also has ready-to-print flyers, and we hung those up and handed them out to neighbors, pet stores, grooming salons, and vet offices. Someone saw one, and called us when they saw her in the yard!
She is super skittish and runs away when she's called by anyone but me (we are going to get her into dog training ASAP) so I informed them to call if they see her again and went on a 2 hour search in the woods behind their house. Someone else heard me calling and said they saw her too. I gave him my number and he called me!
She is exhausted and her fur is matted since she's been gone a week, but she's so happy to be home and hasn't left my side. Thank you everyone who was involved, including PawBoost! Without flyers and online posts, no one would have been able to catch her to see her tag or scan her microchip. PawBoost, along with the people who saw her and called, brought her home!"

"Sonic went missing while we were having remodeling work being done on our house. He had been put up in a room but was mistakenly let out and ran out of the back door while the workers were carrying stuff inside. We realized within 30 minutes that he was gone, but we searched for hours and only found his collar in our neighbor's driveway.
For weeks I searched the area, put up posters, set up traps, and posted to Facebook groups. One of the first tips I received was to post on PawBoost. I received many tips and a lot of help from kind people trying to help me find my cat. After almost 6 weeks missing, I started to give up hope that I would find him. But we finally received a phone call that someone had him and he was across the street!
He was a little frightened and a bit skinny, but he is settling back in well and appears healthy. We are so happy he's home! It's important to get the word out when you've lost your pet. If there were not so many people aware that Sonic was missing, I don't know if we would have ever found him."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sonic's alert. After almost 6 long weeks without him his family is so thankful that he is home. Words can't express just how grateful they all are!
"One Monday I was leaving my home to go assist my coworkers at work with a problem. The sweet dog (whose name is Hannah, I found out later) was standing there on my front porch. She looked a little hesitant, but she came right inside my house when I whistled to her. She was very friendly and wasn't scared to be around people at all, even though she didn't know me.
She stayed with me at my house for the night, and first thing the next morning I looked online for local lost and found pet services, since I was sure that she belonged to someone who was missing her. I found PawBoost and immediately made a profile for Hannah. A few hours later, I received a text message from someone who had seen the alert; the text had a photo of a missing dog flyer with Hannah's photo and her owner's contact information.
It turns out that she had been missing from home since New Years and only ran away because she was scared by some fireworks. She had lost her collar and tags, and I'm certain that without PawBoost I wouldn't have been able to reunite Hannah with her family as quickly! It was amazing how fast it happened, and how many wonderful people commented and shared Hannah's PawBoost alert.
It's thanks to them and PawBoost that Hannah's back with her family today. I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend, and to all my family as well! My parents have five Pit bulls and I have five cats, we'll all use PawBoost in case any of our furry friends ever go missing or if we find other people's pets. Thank you so much for being an accessible service people can use to find their lost and found pets!"

"It was New Year’s Eve and my husband and I were heading home about 10pm. I saw this tiny white dog running down the sidewalk and pulled over. My husband opened his door and called to the dog and she stopped, turned around and jumped into the car and right into his arms. She was trembling - cold and terrified. It was dropping below freezing that night and since it was New Years, fireworks would begin soon.
We drove around the area but soon realized that we needed to take her home since it was late and there was no way to figure out where she came from. I posted the info on Facebook immediately and my cousin recommended PawBoost. Since I have a small group of friends on Facebook, I posted the info on PawBoost as well.
In under 12 hours, I received a call from a crying woman who had been searching for this adorable dog. We returned Bella on New Year’s Day. It was a happy reunion and a wonderful start to the new year!"

"On the afternoon of New Year’s Eve, our painter left a door ajar and our sweet boy Sunny, an indoor-only cat, snuck out. We looked everywhere, posted signs, visited neighbors and used PawBoost, but after a few days we were losing hope. We figured that especially due to the NYE fireworks, he was scared and hiding and maybe further away than we originally thought.
On day 4, we saw a post from someone via PawBoost that shared a helpful video that focused on how searching for a lost indoor cat was different then looking for an outdoor cat. Turns out he was possibly closer to us than we thought and maybe only a few houses away.
Based on the above and several other helpful comments people in the PawBoost community had shared with me, we narrowed our focus. Our daughter eventually saw his little head pop out from under the house!! She was able to coax him out with food and snatch him up. He was terrified, skinny and had some minor injuries from being under the house. After a lot of TLC, trip to the vet for an exam and antibiotics, we are overjoyed to report Sunny is doing well and clearly so happy to be home!!
Because of comments directly shared with us by people who saw our post, we were able to (1) not give up hope (2) we were able to get specific info that eventually helped us find Sunny! It was so comforting to know that many people cared and were looking for him. Even though he turned out to be close by, it warmed my heart to know that there is a community who cares so much and would take time to stop and help.
We are so grateful to the PawBoost community for being an incredibly helpful resource! If we hadn’t received the invaluable tips from PawBoost community members, it’s very possible our sweet boy would not be found. We are SO GRATEFUL to have received the tools, hope and encouragement that we did!"

"One Thursday, an elder aunt was dog sitting and another family member rang the doorbell. When the family member came in, they bent down to pet Teddy and he ran between their legs and out the door. Both family members tried to chase him up the block and catch him but they're both in their 70's. He ran in between cars and around the corner. Needless to say, they weren't able to keep up with him and he got away.
I found PawBoost from doing online searches of pet finding services. Tons of people reached out as a result of our PawBoost post and helped with the search online and in the local area. We did everything they recommended. Including posting signs in all the local pet affiliated businesses, vets, shelters, and on street signs. By Sunday morning we got a call with a sighting of him in the area he ran away from.
My wife and I were about to rush to the area we got the tip from to look for him. Before we could hit the streets, my aunt called me crying saying Teddy came back on his own! He was banging on the front screen door. What a Sunday morning miracle! I 100% recommend PawBoost! PawBoost helped spread the word to over 12,000 people in the area and resulted in 600 online shares.
On top of that, the lost pet report and poster was blasted to the Rescue Squad of volunteers. When I went to check local vets and the shelter, they had already been made aware and had the posters that PawBoost sent beforehand."

"My family and I went to Italy for a vacation, and had my grandmother cat sit Steve. Four days into our trip, I learned Steve had gotten out of my grandmother's house. I immediately flew home to NJ and began my search for Steve. I searched by foot, set up the PawBoost alert, printed flyers all over town, posted to social media, and even hired a telepathic animal communicator.
Ultimately, PawBoost helped me spread the word of mouth and get Steve's picture out to as many people as possible. Through the help I gained from neighbors, I was able to be reunited with Steve after a long 102 days (and in the dead of winter!). A neighbor had spotted him eating the bird seed he put out, and I set up a humane trap with my scent in it - and there he was! Thanks so much, PawBoost! I would recommend this service to anyone and everyone."

"My son and I were returning home from a walk in our neighborhood. We spotted this little white animal running down the street. At first we thought it was a cat, but then we realized it was a little dog and she was obviously scared. When we realized she was too scared to let us get close, I ran into the house and got some of our dog’s grain free treats.
After following her around the neighborhood for a while, we were successful in luring her with the treats. My son was able to catch her and carry her home. We gave her some food and water and took a photo to post on our neighborhood app and Facebook.
I first posted on our neighborhood app and then decided to look at PawBoost to see if she was listed as missing. She wasn’t, so I posted her as found. When I shared it on my Facebook page a friend of mine said she had just seen a post about the same dog missing.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because it was easy and it worked! Clearly there is a huge community of pet people out there paying attention to posts and working to reunite lost pets with their families. I got a ton of messages from people when they realized the owner had posted that Sidney was lost."

"My friend asked me to take care of her dog while she was in NY. I was walking Lorenzo one Tuesday when I saw a white dog roaming on the street and a woman was trying to get him, so I joined her. We tried to catch him but he was scared and tried to bite me twice. Then I realized that he was blind and deaf.
I saw this officer parking 2 houses from my house. I went to tell him about the dog and he went to chase him. Meanwhile, I told my husband and he gave me a leash, (this is not the first time I have found a lost dog) so I drove back where the dog was and with the help of the officer I caught him and brought him to my house.
The police called animal services, but thank God it was closed. So I decided to keep him while I was looking for the owners. I recalled this page from Facebook so I posted a picture of the dog and my information. I received a call days later and the first time I didn't answer because I thought it was a telemarketer. Then my phone rang again and when I answered it was the dog's mom.
I am so happy!! Now I know the dog's name is Yogi and he is at home safe. This page is amazing!! Thanks to PawBoost and the people who shared the post!!"

"I found Ray while taking a walk on New Years Eve at the park by my house. Fireworks were going off and my friends and I were spooked because we saw something moving in the bushes behind us. It was a big animal and we were afraid to approach it. I called for it thinking it could be a dog and she came up to us but was very frightened.
Another firework sounded and she bolted but I called for her again and after a few minutes she came back to us. She did not have a collar on but she was very well behaved even though you could tell she was very scared. After calling out for her owners and looking around for a bit we decided to bring her back to my house.
I took off my coat and tied it around her neck and we walked her back to my house. I have a dog and they got along perfectly, although she was very frightened and it was very late so we just spent some time to calm her down and put her to bed.
The next morning I looked up 'Found Dog San Francisco' and PawBoost came up. I posted on your site and probably 1 minute later someone commented with a post from 3am the night before with a picture of the same dog from her owners who also posted on PawBoost. I found that post and called the owners. They were very excited and picked her up right away!
Turns out she got spooked from the fireworks and got out of her collar and bolted. We were in a very different section of the park from them and she would have crossed several streets to get to us. The owners were very thankful to have her back.
They posted on several different platforms late that night but I was very thankful to have PawBoost, it was quick and easy and we had a lot of other people including vets reach out to us to help. I would recommend to my friends."

"My dad was walking Cashew in the dark when he tripped and fell off the sidewalk into the road. Cashew was scared and bolted off. My dad ended up with two broken ribs, a potentially broken hand, and horrible road rash on his face from the fall. We searched for 6 hours that evening with no luck.
Cashew was found by a neighbor on the same street he was last seen. This neighbor called animal control and when they arrived the officer saw our flyers posted around the neighborhood. The officer called my dad and we were reunited!
PawBoost was incredibly helpful in the search and reunion. Using this service gave me peace of mind that Cashew's information was being shared to as many people as possible. When I called surrounding shelters and police stations, people told me that they had already seen Cashew's flyer and info from PawBoost. I was amazed!!
So many neighbors and people in the community shared the Facebook post from PawBoost and truly helped in spreading the word. So many people were looking out for him which is what ultimately led to our reunion! We are forever grateful.
Do not even hesitate to use this service. Make using PawBoost your number 1 step to locate a lost pet. It is quick, efficient, and the only stress-free part of losing an animal. We felt so comforted knowing that our lost puppy was being seen and shared by so many people. Thank you PawBoost!"

"Leo snuck out the front door without his collar. PawBoost helped by the production of a flyer and advice to alert the neighborhood vets. My neighbor that found Leo called the vet and I had just delivered the flyer. Thanks so much for getting me organized and getting the word out!!
I would recommend PawBoost because it is a great site and is user friendly to get your lost pet in front of 1000’s of people via social media to be on the lookout. Also, the flyer was an easy tool that got the word out in the neighborhood, face to face. A great two pronged method!!
How nice it is he is home!! He came straight to the dog food and now thinks it’s not so bad!"

"Ginger Blue jumped out of an open window that had a screen that was not secured. For the next 12 days we posted flyers everywhere and searched for her night and day. We used every single tip and suggestion that other PawBoost followers gave us.
The suggestions on PawBoost were to set the litter box by the exit point and keep the garage door cracked and place food, water, her bed, a blanket, and her toys in the garage. Then we scattered her toys or cloth items and went outside often to call for her in a normal voice. We also placed flyers on mailboxes, stores, gas stations, etc... We wanted to make sure all of the neighbors within a five house radius knew Ginger Blue was missing. We did it all!
When I drove up to my mom's home, I stopped and prayed for her safe return. When I lifted my head and opened the car door, Ginger Blue came out from under my mom's car. I called her name and she turned her head. Gingy was scared. She trotted off to the garage. I went to the garage and looked for her, but could not find her. I closed the garage door and went to my mom and told her Ginger Blue is locked in the garage.
My mom, husband, and daughter as well as myself all headed to the garage. My mom called for her and heard a faint meow. My mom found Ginger Blue in the back corner of the garage. The tears of joy began to flow from all of our eyes. Much praise and thanks to our Heavenly Father was said.
Ginger went to the vet for an exam, shots, and lab work. Besides being a touch under weight, she was healthy! Ginger Blue has not left my mom's side. Both are so happy to be back together again. Thank you, thank you PawBoost! Without the help everyone provided I am not sure if we would have found her. There is no words strong enough to recommend PawBoost to anyone who loses a pet or finds a pet."

"Reggie went out for his morning outing in my yard. He usually does that for a half an hour or so after it is fully light and I open his cat door. He did not come home. I went out and he still was not back by late afternoon, very unusual. He was not anywhere I looked! So I checked the animal control listings and then called HomeAgain with whom his microchip is registered.
They prepared to do a complex area sweep of resources and were very responsive. I signed in to my neighborhood association too. Then I remembered a friend used someone to print and hang posters and actually go look for her pet. So I wanted to find a pet searching company to do an intense campaign to look for Reggie. I found PawBoost and was very impressed with your range of offerings and plan to help find Reggie.
Reggie has long enjoyed my neighbor and his yard and goes there to stare at their rabbit in the back yard. They had their garage door open then shut it and went to work. They came home about 7:30 and opened it then Reggie arrived home unhurt but hungry and upset. I’m not sure he was in their garage but probably in some one’s. He has been careful outside for the last 10 years, but this unknown event shook both of us up!
I really appreciate the awesome network of folks helping at PawBoost and have already recommended you to someone from our neighborhood online group who lost her cat. Thank you for what you do! While I was fortunate enough not to need a prolonged search for Reggie, PawBoost gave me a real sense of others helping us and hope that he would be home. Thank you so much!"

"My cousin was washing his car and this dog came up to him. My mother sent me a text message to let me know a little male dog was outside her house. She took him in as she was worried he would get run over by a car. They live in Orlando, FL. She mentioned he was friendly and had no problems getting him in the house.
My cousin's girlfriend was trying to find out from a neighborhood app if anyone was missing a dog. I spoke to my mom and I told her I would find a local Orlando Facebook group for lost pets and post the picture there. This led me to PawBoost. I posted there and used PawBoost as fast as I could. I also commented on the post so others would know I had the info on the pup.
I am in NY and have done volunteer work at a local shelter called Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue. I continued scrolling through the page and didn't see anything posted for the missing dog matching our found pup. Later on, I got a call from a gentleman and he said the lost dog's name was Sammy and it was his aunt's dog.
He had gone through a hole in their fence they hadn't noticed (they just moved to the area). We exchanged information and soon they went to pick him up. They had just posted him on PawBoost as well and he had seen my post and immediately reached out to me.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because this was a very useful tool in reuniting this family and their pet. They were very happy my mom took him in. It all worked out and we are all relieved he is safe and at home at last."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sammy's alert. It's amazing what the power of social media can do to reunite pets with their families :)
"Ava Marie got out of the fence in the backyard because of a faulty latch on the gate. She was gone for 5 nights in the cold and the last place she was sighted was running into the woods about 1 mile from our home. I left food and her blankets/bed outside my front door and by the gate where she escaped. Somehow she was able to find her way home.
I let my other dogs out around 6:00 am and she just walked in like nothing had happened. I have another red dachshund and I was so tired that I thought it was Barlee. Once I realized it was her, I screamed with joy waking up everyone in the house. Tears and happiness followed.
I would recommend PawBoost because the more notification you can get out ASAP, the better chance you have of someone spotting your pet giving you hope and information on where to search and do surveillance."

"One Friday my husband told me he saw an orange and white cat hanging around our house. We came home late Saturday evening and I heard a cat crying. I called for the cat and he ran right over to me and allowed me to pet him and pick him up. I couldn’t leave him outside in the cold so we set him up in a spare bedroom we have.
The next morning I posted on PawBoost and it was instantly shared with other social media sites, which then other people started sharing. Then I started to receive messages that the family of the cat were looking for their baby. Within half a hour the family of Gattino picked him up to take him back home.
If it wasn’t for PawBoost and the instant sharing to other sites I’m afraid this family would not have been reunited with their cat. Their son was in tears, he was so happy to see him. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to keep Gattino safe until we were able to reunite him with his family."

"One Sunday we let Nosey out to go to the bathroom and my husband followed not even 5 minutes later when he had finished eating. He came back inside a few minutes later saying he couldn't find her.
I signed into Facebook about 7 weeks later to write an update about her still missing, when my news feed came up the first thing I saw was a PawBoost post of Nosey. The post said she had been found after 3 weeks missing and that they wanted to find her family.
I got so excited, I immediately got the finder's information and sent them an email explaining how I believed that they had my dog. I was going to wait for a reply to the email but then I saw a phone number so I sent a text to the number and a little bit later they responded.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost not only to friends and family but also to any person that has a pet that could possibly escape them. I would recommend PawBoost because they help spread the word about missing and found pets and they do their best to check in every so often with the owners of missing pets to see if the pet has returned."

"Joe Willy was gone for 8 nights and it rained for at least 6 or 7 of those nights. I used the Havahart trap and put litter next to the trap and his favorite food inside the trap. His trap was wrapped and lined with his favorite towels he plays and sleeps with. I set the trap at about 4pm and checked every few hours. I came home at midnight after picking up my daughter from the airport and Joe Willy was in the trap! Mad! But safe.
PawBoost is definitely the place to go when you lose a pet! The PawBoost network of support and advice from other animal lover friends, vets and technicians is beyond amazing! Especially for something as emotional as losing a pet who has become a part of your family. Joe Willy is home and safe because of PawBoost and their magnificent network. I'm so happy I can't sleep. Of course, Joe Willy is fast asleep and safe INSIDE my house.
Thank you PawBoost, Babs and all of our animal lover friends who encouraged me not to give up hope and offered very valuable advice on finding my lost little boy. Hugs to all of you!"

"Diamond was found pawing at the front door of my neighbor. At first we were a little cautious as she was a Pit. Come to find out she is a sweet lovable pup. She came right up to us, tail wagging. We first walked the neighborhood trying to find the owner. She had tags, however it was late on a Friday night and the Animal Control office was closed. Contacted the Sheriff and left a message.
My wife then posted on PawBoost about the find and included a picture. We were able to bring her into our home, feed her and she snuggled in for the night. After many shares by concerned readers we received a call on Saturday morning from Justin stating he was the owner and had been looking for her.
After providing sufficient information and proof that Diamond was in fact his we were able to reunite Diamond and Justin. I don't know who was more happier to have her home, Diamond or Justin. Thank you to the many people who took the time to share the post that reunited these two!"

"I was in the car with my friend Therese when I spotted this beautiful well-groomed corgi grazing in someone's front yard. There was a family outside so we assumed the dog was theirs, but they asserted that they had never seen him before. It was surprisingly easy to catch him. I went up to him and let him sniff me, then I stroked his fur a few times, then I gently put my hand under his belly to pick him up, and Therese opened the car door for us.
We checked around Division St and the street parallel to it but neighbors either had never seen him or saw him running around earlier that day. We took him to the vet, who directed us to an animal shelter. The second shelter we went to took him after we waited in a long line.
Two of my friends recommended to me a website called PawBoost. I decided to make a profile, which was quite simple and within hours I received a text with a picture of the dog I found and a thank you message from his owner. The owner was able to pick him up!
I absolutely would recommend PawBoost and already have to several people. PawBoost is nothing short of a godsend. Keep doing the good work."
