Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"One Thursday evening, Jinx was on our screened in porch. It was a very windy night and the door was blown open allowing Jinx and his brother Junior to get out. When I realized what had happened, I searched the neighborhood. Junior came back right away, but there was no sign of Jinx. I continued to search all night. I put a bowl of food and water on the porch with some of his favorite toys and a litter box.
He was gone for a day and a half before finally returning home at 5am. I was laying in bed (not able to sleep of course) when I saw the motion light come on in the backyard. I jumped up, ran downstairs to check the porch and there he was devouring his food. I was so happy and relieved to see him. I scooped him up and covered him with kisses, then let him resume eating with lots of treats.
I would recommend PawBoost, because it's a great source to reach the community. The support and words of encouragement helped me remain hopeful and get through those difficult days. Thank you all so much!"

"Sophie went missing due to my father opening the side gate and her suddenly running away into the street. It was like she ran over a boost pad in Mario Kart according to him. She's not an outdoor dog, so it's understandable that she would get excited over the aspect of exploring a region other than the backyard and indoors, without a leash that is.
Sophie and I were reunited by a neighbor (bless him for being there at the right place and right time) who saw her in his front yard. He also noticed the missing dog flyers I put up around the neighborhood. He was very close to where I live and dropped her off.
I received a lot of emotional and mental support from the PawBoost post on Facebook. I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend simply because of how many similar dogs that were found sent my way. The members of the community are incredibly helpful, and they're local neighbors! I've received over 5 different senders who were sending me links from Facebook, Neighbors by Ring, and PawBoost to found dogs that they presumed was my dog."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sophie's alert. Spread the word, ask for help, and put up flyers!! That's the true recipe for reuniting two best friends :)
"Monster went missing on a Friday night. I had just given him a bath and we were gonna watch a movie. I should've named him Houdini because no matter what I do to our fence, he always finds a way out. After my husband made repairs to the fence I thought the fence was 'Monster proof' because he hadn't gotten out in over a week.
So that night I let him out to go potty. I didn't watch him as I usually do feeling secure that he couldn't escape. I just opened the door and let him out and figured everything would be okay. When our popcorn was ready and our DVD made it through the previews just a few minutes later I went to let him in and he was gone, nowhere in sight.
We live in an area that has a lot of coyotes at night and I was really worried. We walked around outside, called his name, got our flashlights and looked for him everywhere. It was just a few minutes later that we heard the coyotes pretty close to the house. Of course this sent me into a panic.
The next day I was feeling helpless when he still hadn't returned. After my husband walked looking for him I got on Facebook and saw the ad for PawBoost. Immediately I tried it and started getting responses right away. After about two days a neighbor about a mile and a half from our house sent me a message saying that he had Monster.
When I went to get him the neighbor said that he was there when he left for work and when he got home he was gone. I was elated to know that he was okay and I knew the area where he was last spotted so I concentrated my searches in that area. I printed the posters that PawBoost helped me create and a couple days later another neighbor a little closer to the house saw him playing with his grandson's dog.
He got in touch with me and I picked him up. PawBoost helped me so much because the worst part was feeling ineffectual, and helpless. PawBoost helped me do the things necessary to get the love of my life back home!"

"I had just come home from a drive through the Columbia River Gorge and after closing my garage door I heard loud meowing, like howling. I looked for my cats, and they were inside chilling. So I opened the front door to look around, and this cat was right there. He tried to come in and I said, 'Hey, I don't know you!' But he walked in and I picked him right up. He was purring and looked happy and clean. So I held him up and carried him into the house to show my wife.
Since he was friendly, and it was dark out, we expected him to be local. I put him in the garage and my wife went from door to door asking neighbors. We could not find anyone, and we live near coyotes, so I told the cat he was going to be my guest overnight. I set him up with a box to sleep in, and gave him food, water, and a litter box. He was happy to be in the garage, but still wanted to come in and hang out. But I did not want there to be an issue with my cats, so I left him in garage and just visited him off and on until morning.
We took the cat to the local Banfield vet office and had them scan him. He had a chip and turned out to be called Elvis. They called his owner and the owner came right down to get him. I would recommend recommend PawBoost because a lot of people replied to my post with advice, which was very helpful."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Elvis's alert. Elvis is very fortunate to have found this family to help reunite him with his family :)
"Oliver slipped out of my home late Saturday evening and couldn’t find his way home. I had so many people trying to help find him who don't know me at all, it really opened me up to see how amazing my community is in Lebanon. I was starting to lose hope (gone 18 days total) and took a break from searching and hanging flyers, and just kept trying to bump my posts online for awareness.
I received a message from a couple who had been following my posts with a screenshot from their video surveillance asking if it was him, and I was pretty sure it was. Once they told me they were one street behind me I lost a little bit of hope because I'd had several tips on orange tabbies near me and they were all lookalikes.
I viewed the footage and confirmed 1000% it's MY CAT! We talked a bit, they told me where he headed and I went to find him. The neighbor's house he went towards has a beautiful backyard and had told me previously that I could check her backyard anytime, as several cats like to hang out there. So I'm calling for him over and over, and I get louder and louder.
I was almost ready to move on to the next spot as there was no sign, but then I heard a very faint meow and thought I'm sure that's not him but let's see. I kept calling him and meows got louder. Finally he pops out from a bush against the fence and he was so happy to find me. He was rolling around for me to pet him. He had just been spooked by the neighbor who tried to catch him so I was relieved that he wasn't also scared of me!
It took a few minutes to rescue him as the gate was locked and he wouldn't jump over and I couldn't get him under. I got him to follow me to the other side where there was a gap underneath the gate and coaxed him out. I snatched him and walked home. He was full of purrs. Unbelievable, a true miracle!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Oliver's alert. Amazing! Reunited after 18 days :)
"Ernie went missing one Sunday morning, but we didn’t realize he was gone until that night. Not a good start to try to track him down! Our 2 year old daughter had let him out to play, and neither my husband or I saw her do it. It was only late in the evening when we realized we hadn’t seen him in a while. Usually that means he’s sleeping on a freshly laundered pile of clothes, but we couldn’t find him inside. That’s when my 2 year old told me she let him outside.
Full panic mode followed, we searched for hours and were just hoping he would show up the next morning. Monday morning came and there was still no sign of Ernie, so I started posting online. I found PawBoost as a recommendation from a neighbor on NextDoor, and quickly posted there as well.
Luckily 4 days after he went missing, a man saw our post and called my cell. He was an elderly gentleman who lived almost 2 miles from our house and said he had Ernie! He tried to respond on the post but wasn’t sure how to, so that’s when he called. I would recommend everyone post their phone number in the post itself, in case a Good Samaritan is trying to help but is not tech savvy. I immediately left work and went to his house to pick up Ernie.
There is no way I would have found Ernie without online help! The comments I got on PawBoost also provided support, guidance, and comfort during a very emotionally stressful ordeal. I would strongly recommend PawBoost to anyone missing their pet, because it connects you with others in the area who will help keep a look out and spread the word.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful resource for people (& pets!) when they need it most!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ernie's alert. A special thank you to the sweet couple who found him in their yard! :)
"Piccolo is actually my 9 year old son's cat. I got him a couple months before my son was born, back in 2009. They've been best friends and brothers ever since. We recently moved from the Southside of Milwaukee to the Northside of Milwaukee.
Piccolo likes to hang out on the porch with us when the weather permits. He must have slipped out of our screen door and I locked him out accidentally. There are neighboring dogs and cats that must have spooked him enough to cause him to run off.
Because the area is all new to Piccolo, I believe he couldn't find his way back to us. He was found and then Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (Madacc) gained possession and posted his picture, which I saw the next day.
PawBoost helped by creating a poster for me and publishing my missing pet on their site for all to see. Everyone who saw my plea and shared and/or prayed for us, for my son and for Piccolo's safe return is an angel and we'll forever appreciate your efforts and support. Thank you."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Piccolo's alert. Piccolo is home safe and sound after 10 days :)
"Arlo went missing by escaping under the gate of the fence in the backyard. He is a skittish dog and gunshots were going off. I came outside to let him in too late, because a couple told me a little dog had just ran across the road into the field. We couldn’t get him back.
For a week I constantly searched around my area and neighborhood, posted flyers, posted in lost and found pets Facebook pages, filed reports with shelters and vets along with visiting shelters in person. I also kept a bowl of water on the porch along with his kennel and toys, and I rotated my dirty clothes.
I thought someone stole Arlo because there was no sign of him anywhere. On day 10, I shut everything off and went to bed at 9:30. Shortly after laying in bed I heard a scratching at the front door and his little whiny bark. My heart stopped and I sat up. I heard it again so I got up and opened the front door. He was on the porch steps so I got on the floor and he came running inside. I was in shock.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because it helps get the word out that your fur baby is missing. So many people shared my post and I am forever grateful because complete strangers cared enough to keep an eye out and so many prayers were sent. My kids and I prayed every night for Arlo to be safe and return home. Our prayers were answered and I thank God everyday."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Arlo's alert and kept an eye out. His family is so happy Arlo came home :)
"We don't know how Fern got out of the yard, because the gate was closed and she is not a jumper. My son let her out to go to the bathroom and 10 minutes later she was not there. One of the people on PawBoost was passing out the info and one of her contacts let her know she was found and on her way to the shelter. She emailed and texted me right away.
Her eyes were very red and she was shaking and scared but she gave us all kisses. I will always be grateful for the help of so many people. I was recommended to post on PawBoost and I will absolutely recommend it to anyone else who needs it. You have an amazing service. Thank you for creating such an important and useful tool."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Fern's alert. Fern is now home safe and sound :)
"We believe Khan snuck out of the house one day when our puppy was playing in the yard and we were having a difficult time getting her (the puppy) to come in. He often minds his own business elsewhere in the house, so we didn't notice until the next day that we hadn't seen him in a while and his food was untouched.
After searching the house, we realized that he must have escaped, and started panicking. We immediately made flyers to put up, and on one of the community lost animal pages I follow, they asked me to list Khan on PawBoost before they would share it to the page.
After missing for 2 days, a woman who lives down the street called me thinking that she had my cat. She texted me a picture, and it was him! She said he was cold and hungry, but extremely friendly. I found out that she had posted his photo on Facebook and that a friend of hers saw the PawBoost post with my contact information and sent it her way.
It was so amazing that it worked out! I actually had a bunch of texts saying that they saw him in the area he was ultimately found in. I don't even know where the post was shared, but it made it so far outside of my own personal network.
I definitely would recommend PawBoost, especially to someone in my area. I think it's a very quick and helpful way to spread the news. He was very hungry and tired, and after eating and drinking a lot, he crawled under our bed and has been sleeping ever since. Thanks for having this service!"

"Noah went missing during a family camping trip in Siesta Key one Saturday. As soon as I noticed he was missing I reached out to the local animal services, humane society, animal rescue and other pet rescue organizations. I also created and distributed lost pet flyers locally.
We spent 2 days searching for him in all surrounding areas with no luck. We tried everything... leaving his food, litter, and personal items near us to attract him. He’s very shy and skittish and we suspected he was hiding. We had to return back home to Orlando, FL heart broken without him.
That very same night we got back someone in a nearby neighborhood saw him roaming and called me to let me know where he was. I drove back to Siesta Key and got there late at night. I immediately began looking for him and calling him where I was told, and within minutes I heard his meow. We found him in the early hours across the neighborhood hiding under a car.
He was scared, hungry and very thirsty. We returned back home at last with him relieved that he was unharmed and safe. Noah is not just our family pet; he’s another member of our family and we wouldn’t have stopped looking for him. PawBoost was very responsive to our cry for help in assisting to find our missing family pet by providing very good tips and immediately posting a lost pet flyer.
I would recommend PawBoost to anyone who has a missing pet because the response is almost instant and good tips as well as advice are given. I know we are very lucky yet I believe part of the key to finding him was to take immediate action, spread the word and continue to search in the nearby area."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Noah's alert. His family is happy and grateful that the search ended in a successful reunion :)
"I went to the paint store for a project I am working on. The store clerk was at lunch so I had to sit in my car for a few minutes. I saw this cat walking up the strip mall so I called it and it came right over to me. I picked it up and put it in my car. It was so friendly and a Siamese so I knew it wouldn’t be safe in a very high traffic area.
I work with a rescue on occasion and I was in discussion with them. I brought the cat home but I wasn’t able to take it to my vet to be looked at until that Monday. We made the cat comfortable in our home and Sunday night at dinner I decided to post it on PawBoost. I was making flyers with the intention of going more into where I found it.
I posted a brief description on PawBoost and within a few hours one person and the owner called me. PawBoost is the only place I posted this cat. The rescue folks were shocked this happened so fast. There were a lot of folks who saw my post and then also saw the owner's post about losing the cat and the connections were made. I am not a fan of social media at all but in this instance it worked for the sake of the animal.
I would absolutely recommend using this service. I can’t believe we successfully got the nicest cat I ever met back to her people. Her family was grateful and was also thankful for the power of social media. She was a special kitty and I was glad to help her get home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared this kitty's alert. It's amazing what the power of social media can do :)
"I am a long truck driver and when I am home in southern Oregon I am an avid horseman. Espritte is a 7 month old Australian Shepherd puppy. Eventually she will accompany me on the trail and help me move and sort out cattle!
One Sunday, I was on an extended break in Fort Worth, TX and I was doing routine maintenance on my truck and in minutes Espritte was gone! I called all shelters and then was offered the suggestion to post on PawBoost.
I spent three or four hours combing the area of her disappearance and was thinking about how life would be without my fantastic friend and companion. Then I got a text saying, 'I think we found your baby.' They sent a picture and it was Espritte!
I am overwhelmed with gratitude to PawBoost and all the animal loving community in Fort Worth, TX for her safe return."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Espritte's alert. Espritte is home safe and sound :)
"Rosie dug underneath the fence and belly crawled out of the backyard (don’t worry we blocked it all off!). Rosie was picked up from Animal Friends of the Valley and when her photo was shared all over social media, someone from the community mentioned they saw her get picked up and that I should call in the morning. My husband called and they said they didn’t have her and I was devastated.
About 15 minutes later, I received a call from a different Animal Friends of the Valley and they had her. I rushed over and she was back in my arms 30 minutes later. I would recommend PawBoost to anyone who is ever missing their fur baby! When Rosie went missing I went on as many social media forums and sites to get the word out, and I saw the post that is made from PawBoost on every site I visited.
It was comforting knowing that her photo and description was getting out there in the community. Even some of my coworkers said they received a notification that Rosie was missing! Highly highly recommend this site to anyone who is missing their fur baby! I am so grateful for PawBoost because I know that we were able to find her because of them."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rosie's alert. She’s home with her family where she belongs :)
"Willa and I were having work done in our house, but the contractors entered with some supplies leaving the door open. Willa got scared and flew out the door. She never flies but did this time. We have been together for 23 years. After a long search and no luck, I turned to the internet to crowd source some help.
Animal control called me saying they had a bird that they thought looked a lot like Willa on PawBoost. I went to the shelter and there she was. The shelter took great care of her and had her evaluated by a vet. She is a bit weary looking but doing well.
The only reason Willa is home with me is because of PawBoost. My posting of Willa on PawBoost was seen by animal control and through the system we were able to connect. I cannot thank PawBoost enough for the support and aid in getting Willa home to me.
I definitely would recommend PawBoost for anyone who is looking for a lost pet family member. Willa and I are proof that the website works. PawBoost provided a network of connections that allowed us to be reunited. I am forever grateful."

"Vanna is a little orphan, and newly rescued from an abusive family. She was with a wonderful new foster family in Rancho Santa Margarita and just very scared of everything. On the second day of being with the foster family, her collar snapped and she ran through the foster’s rod-iron fencing. She’s very tiny, only 11 pounds.
She was hiding out at the end of the cul-de-sac up in some deep brush. And we couldn’t get her to come down. She stayed overnight up there, despite our best attempts to coax her down. And thank God the coyotes didn’t get her.
PawBoost was how we saved her. Someone local read the post, came to check out where we were looking, and referred us to an experienced trapper. This person was not on Facebook, and said she saw the alert on PawBoost.
Graciously, the trapper came out at 7pm, set up a trap with rotisserie chicken and chicken broth, told us all to leave the cul-de-sac, and within half of a hour Vanna was safely in the trap. We are so, so thankful, and I’m so, so happy we posted on PawBoost!!! Thank you for doing what you do! PawBoost saved Vanna’s life."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Vanna's alert. Vanna is safe and sound :)
"Late one Monday night/early Tuesday I didn't realize that Juice followed the dog and I outside to the fenced in yard. I went to bed and didn't notice until 7am Tuesday that she was gone. For two days, I walked blocks and called her. I did all the things advised (posted flyers, called vets and shelters, put out litter box and food, talked to neighbors, and looked in bushes) during my search.
Wednesday at 10pm, after spending another hour walking around, I sat on the sidewalk by my front door talking with a friend on my cellphone. I felt something brushing my back and before I even saw her, I knew it was my Juice. She didn't meow. I opened the front door and she walked in. She was hungry, but completely clean/uninjured. She had to have been hiding in a nearby yard, one of the homes near my apartment.
PawBoost gave me insight on what to expect when an indoor only cat goes missing. I thought she would be running around the neighborhood scared. I kept reading that she was most likely nearby, hidden and quiet. I was so scared that I would never know what happened to her. I would recommend PawBoost, because there was so much support and info to keep hope. Juice was only gone for 45 hours, but it felt much longer."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Juice's alert. Juice is home safe and sound :)
"Tillie went missing on a walk with me and my other dog, Cooper. We were walking and Cooper and I were slipping down a hill. Tillie is strong and was able to hold herself up. Cooper was not and fell down the hill. I unleashed them as we were falling. I get to Cooper at the bottom of this hill and attach them both to the leash to get back up. Well Tillie was too fast and strong going up the hill I had to unleash her to get up with Cooper safely.
Cooper and I made it to the top and Tillie was gone. I had my eyes on her while I was climbing up and less than one minute I took my eyes off, she was gone. I was in shock!! She stays by my side like no other. I would have never imagined she would run away. I looked and looked all day until it got dark.
I went back the next day bright and early and looked around that area again. Finally someone called and said they spotted her on this road and I ran to it and found her within the hour. He said he saw my post on Facebook and that’s how he knew to call me. So thank you social media gods!!! And everyone who helped and the angels above!
So happy she is home. I would recommend this site to friends and family! PawBoost helped me get the word out so more eyes were looking for Tillie."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Tillie's alert. She is home safe with the help of her community :)
"Chibbs was out one night and darted away from me when I tried to bring him in. I thought he would come in first thing in the morning so I didn’t chase him. Then he didn’t show up and we all began to fear the worse. We drove through our entire neighborhood, went to the humane society, contacted Simply Cats as well as our vet and several local vets. We activated a missing cat report with HomeAgain, his microchip company, and created a post on PawBoost and Nextdoor.
We created the posts the day before Chibbs came home. After almost a week of being gone he came running into the house as my daughter was leaving for school. I am not sure if someone was possibly holding Chibbs believing him to be a lost kitten (though he does have a collar with all our contact information) and when they saw the post let him come home, or if he was just out roaming and got stuck somewhere. Regardless, I think spreading the word that we missed and loved him definitely helped!
I would recommend PawBoost because this is an excellent way of spreading the word that your pet is missing and how important he or she is to your family. It helps create awareness for people near you to be on the lookout and offers support as you are worrying about your lost fur baby."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Chibbs's alert. It’s wonderful to have a community out there to help lost pets find their way back to loving homes :)
"I let my pups, Luci and Emma, out in my backyard to potty one Sunday afternoon just as I do many times every day. Unbeknownst to me the bottom of one of my gate planks rotted and became soft, and Luci found it, slipped out through it and went on her adventure. She was only out of my sight maybe 90 seconds, but that was enough.
I immediately put on sweats and running shoes and ran throughout my neighborhood calling for her for the next hour, to no avail. I panicked. I first called animal services and reported her missing to them. Then I didn’t know what to do because I’m actually not on any form of social media. So I Googled a lost dog flyer hoping to make one online that I could print and post up in my neighborhood. The first site I saw was PawBoost.
I had no idea how it worked, but I was trying anything I could. So I uploaded a picture of Luci and my contact info thinking I was just creating a lost dog flyer. I had NO IDEA what you guys were going to do for me. Honestly, it was maybe 20 minutes later that I began receiving text messages from people who saw a post about someone finding her. Shortly after that, these wonderful people who found her drove her back home to me.
I am still just in awe at the response I got from your service. I’m not on Facebook or anything of the sort, and it didn’t even matter. My faith in humanity is fully restored. I can’t believe how many people rallied to reunite me with my pet. I have recommended you to everyone I know and always will. I cannot even express to you my gratitude to your service because without you I fear this would not have had a happy ending."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Luci's alert. Because of all of your selfless efforts you made it possible for her pet parent to get her baby back :)
"Mellow is an indoor kitty approximately 1.5 years old. I adopted her as a feral kitten when she was 4 to 5 months old. One Saturday, Mellow jumped out of an open window in my living room with no screen. I did not find out about the incident until 4 hours later and by that time she was long gone. To complicate matters, I had recently had surgery on my foot and was unable to bear any weight on it so was unable to look for her as stringently as I would have under normal circumstances!
My friend looked for her earlier with no luck. My dear brother drove me around the neighborhood to look for Mellow with no luck. I was devastated and was told by a friend about PawBoost. I immediately sent a picture in of Mellow and read the tips on best practices for finding a kitty. I also received emails with tips from your Rescue Squad and followed through on them.
As advised I put Mellow's well-scented litter box outside at the corner of my house. I also put a couple of sweaters around the outside of the house with my scent on them. I placed food and water at three corners of the house and left my garage door open slightly. I also read on your website that lost cats are usually found when still dark outside, either early, early morning or late at night.
I woke up at 4:30 in the morning, grabbed Mellow's treat bag and went on to my front deck calling for Mellow. No sign of my Mellow. I teared up and went to my mudroom and out to my garage, shook the treat bag, heard a weak meow, looked down and there was my sweet baby girl Mellow!! I bawled tears of joy while I fed her treats and she followed me into the house.
I want to thank your organization and your Rescue Squad for the amazing tips that helped me find my baby! I am convinced that if I had not followed through on these tips that my baby would never have found her way home. I will be forever indebted to you all."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Mellow's alert. Mellow is home safe with her family :)
"Lucky Jr likes to go on our balcony and just lay in the shade for hours when it's warm. He sometimes peaks at random squirrels and birds through the railing but that's as brave as he gets. He is a weird cat; he HATES anything higher than my bed, and in 16 years we've never had an issue with him escaping from a high area. It seems that he got a little braver one Sunday morning, reached out too far and accidentally fell through the railing.
He was gone from Sunday morning until very early Tuesday morning. I was mainly worried because at this complex he'd never been further outside than the balcony and would have trouble finding his way back in unfamiliar surroundings. He has chronic kidney issues and needs daily medication which is why I was so desperate to find him.
Luckily, my downstairs neighbor knew that when she spotted him outside in the rain she immediately ran up to get me. It was around 3am, I'm so grateful that she happened to be out because there is no way that I would have known from the 2nd floor. He was definitely a bit hesitant at first but once he realized it was me he came out from hiding. I Immediately got him dry and gave him water, food and his medication. I could not be more relieved to have my guy back home.
I am incredibly grateful for the fast action, support and great advice from fellow animal lovers on PawBoost. I really think it was the use of kitty litter to help him pick up a familiar scent that did the trick! That trick may have been a simple Google search away but I wasn't thinking anywhere near clearly due to worry and lack of sleep, so I'm glad I happened upon that bit of info recommended.
Thanks a ton guys! I will definitely be more cautious about him on the 2nd floor balcony. Until about 80 precautions are in place to make it impossible for him to slip through or get over the railing, only supervised visits to look at squirrels."

"Ramsay slipped out through an open door or garage door when my husband was coming home late from the airport with luggage. No one noticed that he got out and we don't know if it was the front yard or backyard. He is in indoor cat and has only been outside in the backyard briefly to smell around and quickly come back in.
The PawBoost community spread the word quickly on Facebook for me. I received many tips on his location but also I received advice about cat behavior and how I could help him find his way home. I was very impressed at the speed of responses. He came back at midnight after 3 full days away. He came through the garage door I raised about 10 inches and cried for me at the back door.
Everyone on Nextdoor and Facebook suggested PawBoost. It is absolutely the first site to contact when a pet is missing or if you have found one. This is not my first time to use PawBoost to reunite pets and owners. Thank you so much. This service is priceless. We are so happy to have our Ramsay home and safe."

"Jude went missing May of 2018 by breaking through the screen door of my second floor apartment and jumping off the balcony. About a month later I moved states away from where I originally lost him for vet school. Now over 5 hours away I didn't think it would be possible to find him. I checked PawBoost a lot but all of the cats I ended up seeing were other black cats that were not Jude.
I found Jude by a miracle through a Facebook post on Ohio lost pets. The person claimed the cat was female but when I saw the pictures I believed it was my boy. I then got into contact with the person but being so far away I couldn't go to see him. The vet clinic I previously worked at helped me out and one of the techs picked him up until my fiance could make the trip down to check out if it was truly him.
The cat ended up being him! Alive and well after a year and almost 4 months of being gone. We somehow managed to find him even being states away thanks to the help of so many people. I'm so happy to have him back in our lives! I would recommend PawBoost because it helped me spread the word about his escape and look for cats that might be him. Even with being so far away from where I lost him."

"I found out Eros went missing while I was at work. My roommate who is rarely there, came home after work. Somehow Eros ran out the door even though he has never tried to run in the 2 months I’ve had him. After my roommate and some neighbors went looking for him, it soon became dark and they gave up the search. I left work early and my boss met me to help look for him. We looked in the area with no sight of him.
I found Eros by putting his missing flyer everywhere on social media. I used PawBoost first, Maricopa’s County page, Straydar and very social media platform I had. I had a few miss leads but eventually after my boss put Eros's flyer on our Instagram page someone made the connection to the dog in the photo to the dog in someone’s snapchat story.
They sent them the flyer right away and I was in contact with the guys who were watching him. PawBoost was able to help by getting his information out very fast. A random stranger who saw Eros’s PawBoost flyer gave me so many helpful tips and sites to put him on.
I would recommend PawBoost if you have just lost a pet and do not know where to start. Like I said a random stranger messaged me and gave me so many tips on how to help find Eros and that was truly so helpful having someone who wanted to help me find Eros as much as I did, and they didn’t know either one of us."

"Chance got out when my roommate was bringing in stuff from the car. He was by the front door and when he opened the door Chance seized the moment and ran out. He was previously sleeping in my room and didn't have his collar on. I contacted animal control and they put out a notice and recommended I post on Nextdoor, which I did. Someone saw the post and suggested I also try PawBoost, so I posted on there as well.
I did receive several notices of sightings but no one caught him. Eventually he laid down under a shady tree in a neighbor's yard and they were able to walk up to him and bring him to Columbine Animal Hospital. They scanned his microchip and called me. I also have him registered at 24PetWatch and anytime he is scanned they call me too.
He is a stinker and likes to run free. Once free he doesn't like to come, because he thinks he is playing a game of chase. His name was Chase when I adopted him but that quickly changed once we were told he had been given back to the pound 3 times before I adopted him for running away and being an escape artist.
He can clear a 6 foot fence and knows how to open doors and gates. But he is my favorite and I love him! I am confident that the PawBoost post brought attention and helped get him back! Thank you!!"

"CoolWhip ran out the door of our new house in Sienna, and into the dark night while I was trying to keep our new puppy from doing the same. PawBoost certainly helped get the word out! I also printed posters and put them all around the neighborhood. Some young girls in the neighborhood saw my cat and told a mom who called my next door neighbor who texted me.
I quickly went down the road to talk to the girls and Mom, and determined it was definitely CoolWhip they saw. However, he had gone down the sewer and though I called him I could not get him out of the sewer. I called 911 and shortly thereafter, the Forsyth County Fire Department arrived at the sewer with a firetruck and a team of firemen!
To make a long story short, they flushed him out of the sewer with water from a hydrant and firehose. One of the men stood ready to catch him at the other end of the sewer, and was miraculously able to get him! He was wet and mad, but he got home with me safe and sound! As soon as he licked himself clean and dry, he just purred and cuddled us both to sleep.
PawBoost was a helpful way to get the word out that my pet was missing. It was helpful to have the support and suggestions of so many people who responded to the PawBoost alert for CoolWhip. I wish to thank PawBoost and each of the people who were so kind to respond to my alert. There is a lot of emotional turmoil that goes with a missing pet, and I found the support of people I knew and people I did not even know comforting and helpful. Thanks to all!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared CoolWhip's alert. He had been gone for over a week, but is now home safe :)
"We accidentally left the front door unlocked and the door was ajar from 11 AM until 3 PM. We have NEVER done this before. I guess we were in a rush and thought the other would lock the door. PawBoost was recommended to me by a friend. We posted our contact info, Dixie's picture and all relevant location info.
After 36 hours of endless searching through all means possible, we got a call from an angel of a man who was able to get close enough to read Dixie's name on her tag. He read her name, typed it in on Facebook and up popped Dixie's PawBoost post with my contact info. We met up with him 5 minutes later and were overjoyed with our Dixie reunion. Tears of joy mixed with laughter and happy barks filled the sidewalk where I fell to my knees to hug our girl!
I seriously had my doubts we'd ever see Dixie again. She's a pit mix and we live not too far away from an area of Chicago where, because of her breed, would be a hot commodity. But there was no time to be negative. Every minute ticked by was precious search time wasted if we did nothing. So we did it all, handmade fliers, called the police, searched shelters, posted on many IL missing dog sites and PawBoost.
PawBoost was how that kind man was able to get my cell number and contacted me immediately. I have been blessed by angels looking over our girl and will forever be grateful. Thankfully PawBoost was recommended to me by a friend and I whole heartedly recommend PawBoost!"

"Pebbles was in the backyard playing as she loves to be outside, but when we went out to bring her in she was gone. She wiggled her way through a small opening in the fence. She was not wearing her collar because she recently had a bath. It was 9pm and dark out so we were in a panic thinking we would not find her.
After a couple hours of searching I went online to see if there was a site to report a lost dog and found PawBoost. Hoping someone would see the post I posted her picture at 11pm and by 6:30am I got a call saying she was found and was taken to the local animal shelter.
I was so relieved and so happy that people responded to the post. If it wasn't for your website and Rescue Squad, we would have not found her. I have already recommended the website to all my coworkers and friends! Thank you so much for getting the word out there fast to quickly reunite our family. We are truly grateful! Thank you again for everything!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Pebbles's alert. A special thank you to Sam who found her. She is safe at home in her bed :)
"Anna went missing because I had taken her out one night to potty and as we were outside a firecracker went off and she ran off into the backyard. Then, I didn’t see her until the day she was found. Ahna was found by a family friend who was walking around the neighborhood and saw her running up to him from a house down the road from where we live.
PawBoost definitely helped because no matter how sad I was it made me happy that people were sharing, praying and looking out for Ahna all around the community until she returned home. I would definitely recommend PawBoost because they are quick with spreading the word and checking up with updates to see if your pet has returned home or not. Thank you PawBoost! My baby is home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ahna's alert. After 9 long days, she is back and that’s all that matters :)
"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."

"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!"
