Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"One night around 8:30pm, Sheba got out of the backyard before we headed out to go camping. An immediate search turned up nothing, and pet searchers were unable to track her the next day.
After 10 days of searching and no leads, I received a call from a Good Samaritan saying that said they had my Sheba! They told me they saw her in a clear patch among the bushes on the hillside near 1001 steps, a trail near where she went missing.
They climbed into the bushes to retrieve her and carried her up 1001 steps to the road. They were about to call a vet when they saw my poster and called me! PawBoost really helped spread the word!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Sheba's alert. And a big thank you to the couple who found her! Sheba is quite thin and exhausted, but otherwise doing well! And her family is so happy she's home!
"Clementine went exploring one morning, which is perfectly normal for her. However she didn’t return for breakfast, which was unlike her, causing us to report her as missing.
Clementine was reunited when she turned up days later in a neighbour’s garden. She had injured herself, so required immediate vet attention, but is now very much on the mend. (Just a shaven leg to show for it!)
PawBoost helped us spread the word to make sure people knew how to contact us if they found her. They also helped by creating posters that provided useful information about her whereabouts. She was gone for four long days!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Clementine's alert. Her leg is on the mend and she is home safe!
"My husband went to switch the car seats over and this dog was in our side yard by the fence, just sniffing around. We live on a very busy road and thankfully he was safe for a dog with seeing and hearing problems. The owner saw my PawBoost alert on Facebook and emailed me immediately. Thankfully she was only about 3/4 of a mile away.
I was able to find this dog's owners less than an hour after I made the PawBoost alert. It helped reach a lot more people that I could have done on my own. The time it took to find the owner after the alert was put up was so fast."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And thanks to this kind couple who kept him safe and found his owners. To be on a busy road with vision and hearing problems can be scary. Thankfully he's now home safe and sound.
"Daisy got out through the back yard because the fence got loose one day it was quite windy. I started walking around all over the dry creek and the golf course because people had seen her there. We just kept on looking. Even my sisters and brothers-in-law came from Delano to help us look for her.
Around midnight we were like, 'We gotta go back; we will search again tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day.' We thought nothing of it. Then my daughter and son decided to go out and get some fast food. It was already past 1am. On the way back home they decided to drive around, just in case they saw her. And there she was, laying on someone’s yard two blocks down my house! Thank the Lord! She was lost for over 28 hours and they found her at 1:30am!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Daisy's alert. And thanks to everyone who went to the effort to look for her. Daisy is now home safe and sound!
"Our 9 month old indoor cat, Mao, slipped out the garage door when my husband left it open while putting groceries away on a Friday evening. We instantly began posting on Facebook and sharing in our town’s missing pets groups and someone suggested making an alert on PawBoost. I was surprised to see it on our local PawBoost Facebook page right away!
We searched for her on foot Friday night and all day Saturday with no luck. We left out food, water, a bed, blanket, litter, toys, and treats on the front and back porch and inside the garage, which we kept cracked. On Sunday morning, I opened the garage door to see if any of the food had been eaten, and Mao was standing right there.
She stared at me, and I stared back at her silently so I wouldn’t startle her and cause her to run. Then she just walked inside the house like nothing was wrong! We were so overjoyed she was home and cried happy tears. We got her a tagged collar right away and will be getting her microchipped this week.
PawBoost was able to get Mao’s alert on social media so very quickly, which was then able to be shared several times. They also have tips on how to bring your pet home that really work."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Mao's alert and got her information out so quickly. Mao returned home as if nothing were wrong. And her family could not be happier!
"My husband and I saw this little cat trying to cross a busy street. We were so afraid she was going to be hit, so we pulled over into a parking area and she ran right up to us. I opened the car door and she just jumped up there and I picked her up. We knocked on a couple of doors, but no one seemed to know where she belonged. So we brought her home with us and I began posting.
I posted on PawBoost and Facebook and also on Nextdoor. I called the local pound and received a couple inquiries, but no luck. We began to think we had just acquired a new pet! But then I received an email from a young couple who described her exactly. We planned a meeting at a business close by and they came and picked her up. We only had her two days when I received the email from her owners. PawBoost is awesome because it helps people find their pets."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. And thanks to this kind couple who found her and made sure she was safely returned home to her family.
"Champ was in the back seat of my brother's car that was then stolen from a hotel parking lot while he checked out. The next day the car was recovered less than a mile from the hotel, still running, and Champ was still missing. Two days passed with very little Facebook activity of friends and family sharing our posts, and police hit a wall. I decided to boost my PawBoost ad for two reasons: 1) I live across the country and couldn’t do anything else like put up flyers, drive around to search, etc. and 2) Maximum viewership.
I needed hundreds of shares and access to Facebook groups that PawBoost had. After 5 days, 345 shares, and literally 1000s of comments, Champ was dropped off at the local animal shelter and immediately recognized. He was found less than half a mile from the hotel, in an apartment complex, and had been roaming around for a week. So after 10 days away, we were able to reunite Champ with my brother! Thank you to PawBoost and all the doors they opened! It provided access that helped us spread the word and get Champ’s photo out there!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Champ's alert. We are happy to say that he is back home after 10 days, thanks to the help and support of everyone involved!
"I was walking Gizmo in the park and fell in the snow and lost control of his leash. When I got up and tried walking towards him, he was on his way back to our home. I lost his trail in front of the entrance of our condo complex.
I put up flyers in and around the condo complex and park. I received a text saying they got my info from a flyer placed in the condo building and they thought they had my dog. They were worried because he didn’t eat anything all day and was not doing well. I immediately drove to the address provided that was 15-20 minutes away, and was happy that it was my Gizmo.
The info and support I received from PawBoost helped me throughout this horrible experience. It made me hopeful that whoever found my dog would return him to me and I was happy that they did. When I picked him up, they told me that he didn’t eat anything all day. He was happy to be reunited, and after eating his homemade raw dog food, he was comfortable in bed and ready for his belly rubs.
The support received from the PawBoost community was amazing and gave me hope to stay positive that he would be returned. When I received the text that said they might have my dog, I was ecstatic."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Gizmo's alert and for all the support showed. This helped provide a happy ending to an otherwise bad experience.
"Goonie got out the front door one day. We literally searched for him for three weeks! We put up flyers, did PawBoost, Nextdoor, Facebook, you name it, and nothing! My other cat, Max, was so upset that we finally - although heartbroken - adopted another cat named Marvel.
Literally three hours after Marvel entered our lives, I got a call from my neighbor, four doors down. She tells me she’s about 98% sure Goonie is in her apartment!!!! We raced down with the cat carrier and sure enough - it was him! He started meowing and purring right away! He is now like a shadow and doesn’t want to be out of our sight. We’re so happy he’s home! We missed him terribly and now we have three cats to love on!
PawBoost was a big help. Once we posted the alert, we had people call us the same day saying they had seen him, but couldn’t catch him. We knew he was around, but just could never actually find him. We're thankful for everyone's help."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Goonie's alert and let his family know he was around. Thank goodness their neighbor found him. And now Marvel has a home too!
"It was the evening and I was coming home from the grocery store. I heard a kitten - or what I thought was a kitten - crying underneath my roommate's car. I called to the cat and it came right to me and I realized immediately that it was lost. It was very thin and in need of some help. I took the cat in and took it to my vet the next day to see if the kitty had a chip. Unfortunately it didn't.
I went on social media to see if somebody was looking for their cat. I posted it on Facebook and PawBoost popped up, so I went ahead and posted an alert. I got a few phone calls but they did not pan out. Later that same night, a woman called me and asked me questions about this cat. The cat had certain characteristics, so she asked if she could come see the cat the next day. Lo and behold it was her cat!
Just 24 hours after I posted on your site, the cat and its owner were reunited. The cat had been missing for over a month. The owner had been looking for the cat the entire month. She'd posted on PawBoost as well, so she decided to look one more time. She pretty much thought (possibly hoping) that somebody had taken the cat in. Then she saw my post and called me immediately.
I cannot express to you how amazing it felt to be able to reunite this cat with its owner. It was one of the best things I've ever experienced. I was so happy I was walking on air. I think I still am. I received a lot of help from the rescue center; they gave me incredible support. I couldn't have done it without Janet, Robin and Emma. PawBoost was the only way I was able to reunite Lizzy with her owner."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. And thanks to this kind person who took Lizzy in, took care of her, and then reunited her with her owner.
"We were about to leave for a walk and I went to grab something from the kitchen. Woosha had his harness and leash on. When I came back, the wind had blown my door open and Woosha had escaped! A couple picked him up, but they later let him back out on the street again! I assume they realized he was an older elderly dog and didn’t want him.
A super sweet woman saw this couple letting him out and hurried over and grabbed him. She brought him to Petco for name tags and food bowls and then took him to the vet. Because of my PawBoost alert, people were able to reach out to me to say that they knew her and had seen my dog.
Thanks so much to PawBoost. The social media exposure is 100% the reason I got my pup back and back so fast!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Woosha's alert. And thanks so much to the kind woman who saw him and took such good care of him. Woosha is back home now.
"Dexter is an indoor and outdoor cat, so he’s used to being outside for long periods of time. But he always comes home religiously for dinner. But this night he wasn’t there. I walked around everywhere calling his name. It was raining really badly outside, so some suggested he could be hiding. But he usually isn’t fussed by the rain, so I knew it was very strange he wasn’t back.
A lot of people who commented on my PawBoost alert suggested that I do the 3am walk. So on the second night he was missing, I went out and searched the streets, calling his name with a can of food. I heard a faint meow, and stayed still and quiet, and it was coming from someone's backyard where he was stuck! They were doing some construction and he had no way out!
The support from PawBoost was appreciated. It’s reassuring to know that you’ve put your pet out there for people to be aware of in their neighbourhood, and possibly sight your pet."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Dexter's alert and offered suggestions and support. Dexter was found and he is home safe.
"I was driving down the boulevard, a very busy highway, and noticed this dog running up and down the street. He was actually moving in and out of cars and running up in lawns and it looked like he was confused. I followed him for a couple of blocks, just to make sure no one was with him. Then, I opened my car door and called him and he jumped right in with me.
I joined PawBoost about 3 weeks prior because my dog got out and we couldn't find him. We wanted to get out there and post everywhere and PawBoost is one of the best places to get the alert shared all around. So we did an alert with pictures and contact information.
We got a call from a woman who said she was the owner and she was able to identify the dog by different markings and the teeth. We found the dog at around 2:00 p.m. and received the owner's call by 11:00 p.m. the same day. She came the next day to pick up the dog and stayed and hung out for a while with us.
I have had such a good experience with PawBoost both times. The contact and finding people happens very fast. I was able to find my dog within 3 hours of being lost and they were able to find this husky within 6 hours of being lost. Thanks to everyone!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this husky's alert. And thanks so much to the Good Samaritan who took care of him and found his owner. What a happy ending!
"Bentley escaped out of a door that got blown open by the wind. I searched for hours every day, getting up early, and staying up late. I walked all around the surrounding areas, shaking his bowl of food in the cold and pouring rain.
Then, one time I went outside to the backyard to call him before walking my normal five-house perimeter to look for him. I heard a meow and instantly knew it was his! I ran to the side of the house and found him trapped in the window well. I had checked there that morning with no luck, but he must have made his way back and fell in. I opened the window to get him out and he jumped into my arms.
We are so happy he’s safe and sound! The articles PawBoost sent to me were very helpful and reassuring. The fact that I knew PawBoost had made him visible to a large following online made me feel more confident in his chances of coming home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Bentley's alert and sent encouraging and helpful messages. He is so happy to be home!
"My foxes Rowyn and Thystle have a secure enclosure that they stay in outside. One night, part of their enclosure was damaged and Rowyn escaped. He was gone for 5 days and we missed him so much. Thystle was devastated without him.
A stranger found him on a baseball field in our town and was able to lure him to them with treats and put a slip lead over his head. PawBoost was such a big help! Rowyn's missing poster was shared over 1000 times. That meant that thousands of more people were able to help look for him. Words cannot express my gratitude."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Rowyn's alert. He is now safe at home with his family and Thystle couldn't be happier.
"They just wandered up to my deck. They were clearly someone’s pets, so I kept them from leaving by blocking the stairs. We immediately posted on all of the local Facebook sites including PawBoost, in hopes that we could find the family. Fortunately a friend of a friend's friend recognized the dogs and called them.
We had the pups safely at home 30 hours later. There was lots of sharing, including fabulous posters and a Facebook message from the PawBoost alert! It turns out the owners were away for the weekend. They found out when they got home that the pups had dug out from under the fence.
Thanks to PawBoost for getting the word out. The more eyes you can get on a lost pet, the faster, the better!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared these pups' alert. A big thank you to the Good Samaritan who took care of them until their owners could be found. And to the person who recognized them and called! They're now home safe and sound.
"We had an ice storm. Dusti lives with my dad. He couldn’t get the back door open so he let her out of the garage and into the backyard via a gate by the door. After she went, she headed out and down the driveway. It was solid ice and he’s 82 and couldn’t go after her. She’s almost 13 and has a little dementia. She was gone.
I posted her pic on PawBoost, knowing I’d never see her again. I was heartbroken. It was in the low 20’s and I just pictured her hurt and laying in the cold with no one to help her. But a wonderful person took her in after she’d been outside in the cold for 12 hours. The next morning, my husband called me to come look on the computer. They found her! I am so blessed!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Dusti's alert. And a big thank you to the very dear person who took her in after she was in the ice and cold. Her family members are glad she is at home!
"Izzy is blind. I let her out to go potty and then answered my own 'nature’s call.' By the time I went to get her, she was gone.
Jasper Rubber is a company across and down the street from our neighborhood. A wonderful lady working the 3rd shift found Izzy one morning, hunkered down trying to stay warm. She took Izzy home, warmed her up, then took a nap. When she woke up, she saw a post on Facebook of Izzy’s lost status. She contacted my husband and said, 'I think I have your dog!' We are so grateful for all who have shared her lost status. Our girl was out in the cold and snow for at least 3 nights. She wouldn’t be home if not for those caring enough to share. We are so blessed!
HUGE thank you to Dubois County Humane Society (Indiana) volunteers who helped look for Izzy and gave us advice and hope. Our biggest gratitude to Tonya who found our sweet Izzy and called us. We feel like we can finally breathe. We are so happy to have her back!!!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Izzy's alert and offered encouragement and hope. Thanks so much to Tonya for taking good care of Izzy and getting her home safely. What a happy reunion!
"He just wandered up to our back porch. When we sat down on the back porch and tried to pet him, he jumped up in our lap. After that, he wouldn't let me out of his sight.
I posted pictures and read the PawBoost articles to find ways to search for his family. Then I thought about the microchip in our pets and contacted my vet to see about scanning. We gently coaxed him into the carrier and drove him to the vet. We got the microchip number and found out his owner's name. In the meantime, she had seen my posts through PawBoost and on Facebook.
PawBoost really helps to get the word out for lost or found pets, while giving you ideas on how to search. Once I started searching, he was reunited in only a couple of hours. He had been missing for about two weeks."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. And thanks to the Good Samaritan who took care of him and found his owner. He was gone for two weeks and is finally home.
"The door on our back porch was left open and Skooma slipped outside before anyone noticed. We searched and called for her for a few hours with no luck. We left her litter box, her favorite pillow, a blanket that smelled like her, and some food out, as well as leaving our back door slightly cracked in case she found her way home.
I listed her as missing through PawBoost, and was in the process of reaching out to local shelters. I contacted the company for her microchip and reported her missing there as well. I was a little disappointed to find out that the chips don't actually help track your pet, but rather only identify them. I posted missing flyers that I had downloaded from PawBoost around my community and nearby neighborhoods.
My leasing office notified me that someone had come by the office the day before to say that they had found her. They were in the process of posting on our community bulletin board when they found my flyer. My leasing office was able to put me in contact with her rescuer and she was dropped off safe and sound.
PawBoost helped to spread awareness that Skooma was missing and gave me access to flyers that gave people a way to contact me when she was found. This ultimately led to her return."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Skooma's alert. Her owner is so happy to have her baby home safe and sound! To anyone else looking for a lost pet, don't give up hope!
"Stone slipped out of his collar just a few days after being adopted. His new owners had taken him to a friend's house in an unfamiliar area and he got spooked. He's a very nervous pup and just didn't have enough time with his new family to fully bond and trust them. So when he got out of his loose collar, he took off.
We were Stone's fosters. When we learned he was missing, we immediately posted on PawBoost and called around to all of the local shelters and veterinarians, and the owners put up flyers. But no luck. Unfortunately, we were out of town and weren't able to hit the ground to find him until three weeks after he went missing.
As soon as we were back home, we re-posted on PawBoost with the location of the most recent sighting. Someone messaged us immediately that they had seen him the night before. We went to the location and put up the flyers we created on PawBoost. We talked to everyone and anyone we could about him.
We stayed in the area in case someone called with a sighting and, sure enough, they did! We quickly made it to where he was spotted and were able to grab him. We are so so happy he's safe!
I don't think we would have found Stone if it weren't for PawBoost. We were able to post quickly on social media, spread the word, and print flyers. We were notified by email any time someone sent a message or left a comment."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Stone's alert and left helpful comments. Thanks so much to his former fosters for all they did to find Stone and ensure he made it home safely to his new family.
"She was crossing a busy intersection. I was able to pull over and call her to the sidewalk. From there, I drove towards a nearby neighborhood to see if there were any open gates or people looking for her. I asked everyone I saw outside if they recognized her. No one had any clue.
I checked at a local vet for a microchip, but there wasn’t one. I called the vet on her rabies tag and they couldn’t find a record. The last resort was an animal shelter, so I wanted to be sure to exhaust every other option first. I asked on Facebook and was told about PawBoost. She was home by the next morning!
Not only did PawBoost broadcast the listing to multiple sites, it was so easy to use. If it weren’t for PawBoost, this poor pup would never have made it home to her family."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And thanks to the kind soul who kept her safe and found her family. She's now home.
"Cosmo has always been an outdoor cat. One morning he was out exploring and unfortunately wandered too far off and couldn’t find his way back home. A lovely couple who had been feeding him saw our post about him on PawBoost and contacted us immediately.
We were reunited about 10 minutes later. Cosmo had been missing for 19 days - almost 3 weeks! PawBoost helped so much. Thanks to the post we made, we were able to reunite with him. And thanks again to the couple who found him. We are so grateful!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Cosmo's alert. A big thanks to the lovely couple who took care of him while he was missing. Cosmo is now back home!
"I operate a home business and one of my employees left the gate open while Ruby Faye was in the backyard. We were reunited with our girl after being contacted by an individual who had seen our PawBoost alert online. She was in a city located 30 miles from where she went missing.
Luckily, a gentleman who was in the area working that morning noticed her near a busy intersection and stopped to pick her up. After the initial contact, we exchanged photos to verify her identity and arrange pickup.
We are truly blessed to have her home! I believe that PawBoost was integral in spreading awareness through social media and reuniting us with our baby. We truly appreciate all the support. I know we’re incredibly lucky!!!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Ruby Faye's alert and offered help and support. Thanks so much to the kind gentleman who found her, kept her safe, and located her owners. Ruby Faye is home safe and sound.
"I was driving down the road when I saw a small Sheltie running down the side of the road. At first I just slowed, thinking that she must belong to someone nearby. Then she darted across the road, causing three cars to swerve to avoid hitting her. I turned around and followed her into a nearby neighborhood.
With the help of several wonderful people, we managed to get ahold of her. A wonderful neighbor lent me a kennel to safely secure her and drove us around asking people if they had seen the dog before, but we had no luck.
I was new to the area and I didn’t have any social media accounts, so I turned to PawBoost. PawBoost got the word out, and within hours we had found Molly’s mom. She had been visiting from out of town when Molly got loose. Molly is 14 years old, blind, and deaf. Mom was very happy to have her back and was in tears when she saw her."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Molly's alert. And a big thank you to this Good Samaritan who took care of her and found her mom. This senior Sheltie is safely home.
"We are not sure when Kasper went missing, because he comes and goes as he pleases. But he didn’t turn up for tea, and his spot on the sofa had been empty all day, which is completely unheard of. So we were very worried. Not to know where he was and why he didn’t come home was heartbreaking.
We followed the PawBoost advice and put up posters, knocked on doors asking neighbours to check in sheds and garages, and put flyers through doors. I was surprised and pleased how helpful and kind people were.
After 3 nights away, Kasper turned up at home at about 2am, asking to be fed. I know it might seem like a short time away, but we know his habits and this was so unlike him, so we feared the worst.
PawBoost was appreciated for their support and advice. We wanted to share this story so that other owners don’t lose hope. Cats are obviously very resilient and other people are kind and understanding."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Kasper's alert. And thanks for all the support and advice offered to Kasper's family. They are so happy that he is home.
"I let Bailey out into the backyard in the morning, but I didn’t realize the gate wasn’t closed. She ran off with her sister. We found her sister later the same day, but Bailey wasn’t anywhere in sight.
PawBoost helped us spread the news and information to everyone nearby. A friendly woman reached out to me via Facebook and through the PawBoost alert about finding Bailey. She found Bailey next to her trash can on the side of the house.
Without PawBoost or the help of spreading the news of her being lost, we wouldn’t have been able to find her. PawBoost helped us so much, and it also gave me hope!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Bailey's alert and helped keep hope alive. Bailey is home safe and sound. Her owners and her sister are so relieved.
"The cat was very friendly. It allowed us to pet it and pick it up. It was in the driveway. I think it's important to note that the owner does NOT have a Facebook or any other social media account. It was only from our posting pictures of the cat, along with the address where it was found, that a neighbor recognized it and notified the owner.
I have seen too many 'found' posts where people don't want to post pictures, in order to prevent the wrong person from claiming it. There are so many other ways of proving ownership. The pictures are how you match up a found animal with a lost one. The owners were found in less than a day, once all of the posts were made and shared.
She was an outside cat, so it took them a couple of days to notice she had not come home. PawBoost was a big help. The automatic posting to Facebook allowed for instant sharing to multiple pages and by multiple people."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this lost kitty's alert. Thanks so much to this Good Samaritan who posted the alert, and to the neighbor who recognized her and notified her owners. What a happy ending!
"Ozzie had just started his leash training when I adopted him. He was doing great with the training at our home. However, when he pulled out of his collar and took off, he was in an unfamiliar area.
Our first sighting since Ozzie had taken off was one Saturday afternoon. We tried to keep up with him but he was too fast, and there had been no recent snowfall for tracks. It was advised that we wait till the morning to try for another sighting. It was almost dark and we wanted him to get to wherever he had been hunkering down before dark.
The next morning we decided to use the line push strategy to get him to where I would be waiting. The team spotted him within 10 minutes! We had also received several inches of snow overnight, which made tracking him fairly simple. Ozzie was still very scared and was not giving in to being caught. As he started to get tired, he slowed down, and the team had people coming from two directions. At that point my son was able to catch him. The team was very impressed with Ozzie’s speed!
PawBoost gave us the hope and encouragement to not give up! Ozzie was gone for 10 days before we were able to find him. The PawBoost community gave us so much important moral support through all the people who commented, telling us not to give up!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Ozzie's alert and offered such important encouragement. Thanks for all the shares and prayers! Ozzie is home safe and warm.
"Minnie slipped out the door when we had a visitor come in and not shut the door all the way. PawBoost gave a great list of things to do when you have a lost pet. One of them was if you have another pet that’s their buddy, take it on your search with you. So my kids and I took her buddy on our walk to find her. We were not expecting to find her but we did!
I would definitely suggest that if you go looking for your missing animal, take your walk slowly, call their name a lot, and look under people’s cars, trailers, and other places where your animal could hide. Along the way, take breaks to call for your animal, and wait before you move on. Minnie was missing almost 24 hours before we found her.
The suggestions we got from PawBoost were so helpful. Having more than one set of eyes and having the information out there for people in your area is better than trying to do everything by yourself."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Minnie's alert. Thanks for all the suggestions and messages of support. Minnie is home safe and sound!
"He followed me while I was taking a walk around the building complex where I live. Once I got to my apartment, he made his way onto my patio and stayed there. I captured him by leaving tuna in a carrier.
As soon as I caught him, I took him to a vet to scan him for a chip, but he didn't have one. So I took him to Dumb Friends League - a local shelter. I posted his picture everywhere, including PawBoost! The owner saw my alert on the site and asked me to contact her. She had been looking for her cat for three days. You guys made it happen!
I didn't know this site existed previous to finding this lost cat. But it has a LOT of exposure between the lost and found pets community!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert and to the Good Samaritan who found him and made sure he got home safely.
"My son took her out to the restroom with my other dog and one of them took off after a cat. In the two minutes it took for him to get back, she happily trotted off in the rain. We found her almost two years ago in 100+ degree weather, matted and dehydrated, so she’s always been a free spirit girl. As soon as my son noticed she was gone, he got his dad to help him search while I checked all the cameras.
A homeowner a block away was taking out her trash. She saw her and took her in. She had her daughter search before taking her to a shelter and came across the PawBoost post. The crazy thing is, we were driving around searching on bikes and had seen this neighbor walk inside her house. But we never saw her holding our dog, nor did we think to ask.
This whole time she was nearby and at a home in front of my son's bus stop. The homeowner reached out to us via one of the posts that was shared and we were able to go pick her up. Chila was missing for 4 days. If it weren’t for the posts and everyone who shared it, we may have never found her."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Chila's alert. She was just a block away the whole time. A big thanks to the family who cared for her until they found her family.
"We had taken Oreo outside to get some fresh air and to help him get used to his new environment. He became a little startled and broke free from his leash. From there he ran around the house several times, before running where we couldn't see or find him.
Oreo was stuck high up in a tree trying to get down. He stayed in the tree for several hours before he finally made his way down, but right when I tried to catch him to take him back inside, Oreo ran off again. About two hours later I heard loud meowing, which sounded like it was right outside my window.
So I decided to go and check it out, which is when I found Oreo hiding on our porch meowing. This time I picked him up and held him tight and brought him back inside. He sniffed around a bit, and immediately went back to normal like nothing had ever happened.
I love the way PawBoost is set up, when it comes to spreading the word about a lost pet. I also like how other users can interact and report a found pet or share information. It's a unique way of getting help for finding a lost pet."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Oreo's alert. He is now safe and back home with his family and his younger sibling Marble!
"My 11-year-old son was outside in the front yard when the dog came up to him. He checked to see if the dog had a collar on, and he did not. He immediately went from neighbor to neighbor on our street, asking if they were the owner. With no luck, he brought the sweet boy back to our house.
The whole time the dog just walked with him with no leash. He put him in the fenced yard and gave him food and water. He brought him dog toys and started playing fetch with him. My son kept asking me to make sure we could do everything to find the dog's owner. He would not leave the dog's side. While he was sitting outside on a blanket, the dog came and curled up next to him.
We posted an alert on PawBoost, and called the nearest vet to check for a chip. My son was able to put a collar and leash on him. He walked him into the van, where the dog laid down on the floor with blankets all around him. We were headed to the vet's office when I received the phone call from the owner. We made arrangements to drop the sweet boy off.
Now we knew his name is Baine. We arrived and my 11-year-old son was so excited that he was able to help. He said goodbye to the sweet boy and as he did, the dog gave him a kiss. For my son and my family, it was great to see the dog's excitement of seeing his owner, and then in his own way, thank my son.
PawBoost is where the owner found her dog. She had been looking for a day and a half. It took all of an hour for the two to be reunited. PawBoost is a great place to push out information about a lost animal or a found animal needing to find their owners."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Baine's alert. And a big thanks to this kind and thoughtful boy who did all he could to reunite Baine with his owner.
"Buddy is an indoor/outdoor cat, so he likes to roam the neighborhood during the day. There was a heavy rainstorm one day and he didn't come home. We worried about the worst case scenarios but really hoped for the best one - that someone took him in during the storm.
We posted on PawBoost, Facebook, and Nextdoor. Our neighbors saw our post on Nextdoor and contacted us. Turns out, he was just a few doors down! PawBoost was a huge help! I was able to connect with others who gave a lot of advice and great tips. I'm very grateful for the PawBoost community.
It's more than just canvassing and calling the pet's name; I would've never thought of leaving tuna out or sprinkling cat litter on the lawn to draw Buddy back home. There was so much support from cat lovers, dog lovers - just animal lovers in general. I'm so grateful for the support! All of that advice was given by the PawBoost community!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Buddy's alert and sent so many helpful tips. Your support helped Buddy get back home!
"Asilo disappeared, literally. As we were finishing up dinner, my husband asked, 'Have you seen Asilo today?' I said no. I thought he was probably just cozied up in one of his favorite hiding places. But he wasn’t. We tore the house down looking for him. We searched for him outside, despite it being below freezing, and we just couldn’t find him. He was gone.
Two days later, as we were finishing up dinner yet again, we suddenly heard him meowing. I ran outside to look for him, and my husband checked the basement. He had managed to crawl into the basement through a hole on the outside. Just like that, he had come home. I checked PawBoost constantly to see if anyone had found him. It gave us a peace of mind knowing other people were helping us look for him.
Asilo was gone only two days, thankfully. Who would’ve known that procrastinating on home repairs is what would help him come home. PawBoost is a great resource for searching for found pets. Seeing how many lost cats were reunited helped too, because it reminded me that he could be found."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Asilo's alert and to all who helped look for him. Asilo is happy to be home.
