Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"We left the front door cracked open and Lucas snuck out right by us. We believe he got scared by the cars in the streets and started running. We recently moved to Moorestown, so he has not been around the neighborhood in order to be able to find his way home.
He was reported seen on PawBoost in a business center east gate. They saw his missing posting so PawBoost is the reason we were able to find him. As soon as we saw the posting we went there and were able to get Lucas home. He was hiding out in the woods. Thank you very much for your support.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost because it's easy to use, gives you all of the necessary tools to report a missing a pet and a portal to communicate with anyone that might have seen your pet. In our case that is the reason we were able to get him back."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Lucas's alert. It was a heart warming reunion for Lucas and Charlie. Charlie was camping out for 3 days in the living room window waiting for Lucas to come home :)
"Phil got out of the house while I went to town. He must have ran down the road and was picked up by a lady. She then took him to her house which is about 10 miles away. While there he jumped the fence and was gone by the next day. She soon found out I was desperately looking for my fur baby and joined the search.
It took almost 2 weeks and 25 miles to find him but I never gave up hope that we would be reunited again. I met many animal lovers through this process and I am so grateful for every share, comment, and prayer said on our behalf. At almost two weeks gone I was so sad about my missing baby but still completely devoted to finding him so I pressed on determined.
I got a message from another animal lover asking if the picture she saw was my missing pup and as soon as I saw him I started crying in joy. It was my baby, Phil. I was so relieved. I would 100% recommend PawBoost. They put his info and picture out there for everyone around this area to see. I am definitely convinced that without PawBoost my fur baby would not be home in bed now. Thank you to all who helped."

"Queenie is an indoor cat and her curiosity is much bigger than she is. One Saturday evening, she must have been successful and snuck out the backdoor. When I woke up Sunday morning, I could not find her anywhere in the house. My heart jumped and I panicked because I did not check before I went to bed to make sure she was in the house, like I usually do.
All day was spent looking and calling throughout the neighborhood, posting and searching on lost and found websites, making and posting flyers, and talking to neighbors. One person who commented on my post mentioned she found her cat late at night and to look in the early morning hours.
So I went on a search around 9:30pm, but saw and heard nothing, the sounds of a breezy night did not help. I went to bed begrudgingly and very, very sad. My plan was to wake up around 5:00am and try again as another concerned and caring person suggested. My son was still awake so I asked him to call for her outside in the front and backyard before he went to bed.
Around 12:30am, he was calling her name over the neighbor's fence in the backyard and heard a faint meow. He called her name again and heard her more clearly. She then slowly walked toward him but not with her same energy. We had asked neighbors to keep an eye out, but this particular neighbor was not home all day Sunday.
The doctor says she is dehydrated, gave her fluids and said to keep an eye on her. I know she would not have survived another day's heat. My advice is don't give up looking and look late night into the early morning. Ask all of your neighbors within a block radius to look on their property immediately, if possible.
Thank you PawBoost and everyone that responded with caring and loving comments. We are so grateful."

"Buggy, an exclusively indoor cat, went missing after a guest didn't close the door all the way shut. After Buggy’s missing post went up on PawBoost’s Facebook page, I constantly checked for new comments. On the 3rd day of being missing, a comment was posted suggesting that I put his litter box and a piece of my clothing outside so that he could essentially smell his way home.
I did as suggested that night and he was able to find his way home by the next morning! It might be a coincidence, but my gut tells me that I 100% owe Buggy’s safe return to the woman who took time out of her life to give advice to a complete stranger and also to PawBoost for creating the platform that made it all happen.
I would one million percent recommend PawBoost. As a first time cat mom and newly converted cat lover, I received incredible amounts of support and informative advice from complete strangers. It is genuinely heartwarming to know that there is a place made for communities to come together to help reunite people with their missing pets/fur babies. Thank you again!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Buggy's alert. Buggy and his sister Callie are so glad to be back together :)
"One Thursday evening, my mom was walking Pepito in our neighborhood and he got spooked by something. He ran away with his leash still attached. A couple of neighborhood kids on bikes and on foot tried to catch him, but he was just too quick. They quickly lost sight of him.
I received a call from the Valley Animal Center in Fresno around 11am that Friday. I also received a call, text message and email from the microchip company telling me that Pepito was found and was being held at the Valley Animal Center. Coincidentally, I adopted Pepito from the Valley Animal Center four years ago.
I picked up Pepito and the nice woman and her daughter who took him there were still at the center, so I was able to personally thank them. I also asked them to thank the unidentified resident who found Pepito.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because you guys helped me spread the word about my missing pet. Without you, it would have taken a lot longer to spread the word online. Thank you so much!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Pepito's alert. Don't forget keeping your fur baby's microchip up-to-date is good practice :)
"I was parking at my mother-in-law's home for a visit and saw this pup walking up the street. I quickly rolled down my window and made kissing noises to get his attention. He stopped thankfully! I parked my car and went up to him. He was so sweet and came right to me for some pets. Grabbed a leash from the car and looked around for anyone that may be looking for him.
I didn't see anyone so I loaded him up in my car and went straight to the animal shelter and filed a report. They so kindly said I could keep him at my home until the owners were found. I was overjoyed. I can only imagine how scary a shelter can be for animals; loud, they're all alone and missing their family.
I went on and made a posting for him which was shared to Facebook. Many people shared and commented on his posting and word spread quickly. His owner had posted a lost pet post on another website. Someone who had seen their post saw mine and put two and two together and sent me a link to the post. I then got a call from his mom and she lived just a few doors down from my mother-in-law's! He slipped through a gate that they may have accidentally left unlocked.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to a friend. These animals are part of our families and to have them go missing is heartbreaking. Having a resource such as PawBoost is amazing because they help us connect on a greater level."

"My parents were pet sitting Ozzie at their house while I was on vacation and just before I came home Ozzie snuck out of the house. Ozzie has always been a savvy outdoor-access cat at home but he is not permitted to go outside at their house. By the time my parents noticed he was missing and I returned home to collect him, we figure he had already been on the loose for about 48 hours.
I immediately started canvassing the neighborhood, calling with his treats, talking to the neighbors, and handing out flyers. We figured because Ozzie was in unfamiliar territory, he was likely just hiding, but as the days wore on I became more fearful. I called animal services daily since Ozzie is microchipped, but he was eluding them too.
I sent out postcards, posted flyers, shared Facebook posts, and informed all the local vets and shelters, but the weeks kept passing by and still no sign of Ozzie. Despite the weeks passing I never lost hope, my gut told me Ozzie was still out there. Finally, after six and a half weeks missing, Ozzie was caught in a neighbor's raccoon trap!
They were going to let him loose, thinking he was a local pet, but their daughter remembered seeing Ozzie’s MISSING posters and they turned him over to animal services. Animal services confirmed his identity with his microchip and I was able to pick up Ozzie the next morning!
PawBoost helped me spread the word and share Ozzie's Facebook post. They also helped me to create flyers to post and I think most importantly kept my hope alive. Reading all of the success stories about reunited cats that had been missing for many months allowed me to keep faith that our reunion was not only possible but likely.
I hope you will never know the pain of losing a pet but if you do, I would absolutely recommend registering your fur baby with PawBoost and using their resources."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ozzie's alert. He went straight to the vet that afternoon and is in overall good health :)
"I found Jasper hanging around my house. I live in a slightly industrial area. I became concerned after seeing him for several days wandering around outside. One night he came to my side door which opens onto a large empty lot. At first he was a little shy, but with gentle coaxing and some cat treats, we soon became friends. I brought him inside, and after careful inspection discovered he was quite matted and appeared to have been on the street for some time.
I came upon PawBoost after posting on my Facebook page and immediately posted with you guys. After reviewing your lost pages, I contacted every owner I could find that resembled Jasper. Sadly, we could not find his owner. After several days, I was beginning to lose hope. I was just about to the conclusion that I would be adopting him when something told me to go back a little further in my search on your site.
And there he was! Jasper’s family had been searching for him for several months. I contacted them immediately and they confirmed it was their cat. His mom came right away to get him. His family missed him very much and were grateful and happy for his safe return. Little Jasper had been missing for over two months and had traveled 6.8 km from his home.
He had lost a significant amount of weight and was quite ragged looking. Mom was so happy to have him back as she explained that her children were searching for him nightly with treats in hopes of his return. They had him for nine years and were quite distraught over his absence. I was told that when Jasper arrived home, he ran right to their little girl.
I have to admit I was a bit emotional and very happy we found his family! Thank you for providing this site, as I don’t think I would have found his family without you. Best wishes to beautiful Jasper and his wonderful family. I would gladly recommend PawBoost to anyone in need!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Jasper's alert. Jasper’s mom was delighted to have gotten him back :)
"Meatball is a recently adopted rescue dog. He was spooked walking past a person and wiggled his unusually long body out of his harness in 2 seconds flat and bolted. He was in an unfamiliar town and a very busy area, so he ran frantically for 8 hours straight before found.
A group of four people stopped traffic and wrangled Meatball into a car then called us to reunite. PawBoost was absolutely able to help in the amount of people that were able to share his alert. The flyers were helpful as well as we were posting them in neighborhoods based on sightings.
I would recommend PawBoost! Especially in this situation, we were in an unfamiliar town to him. The more we could let people know to look for him was our only hope! Thank you! We are very thankful to have him back and he's got a fancy, new GPS collar on the way."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Meatball's alert. Here he is snuggling with dad after getting home :)
"Sonny is an indoor/outdoor cat. He's kind of like a little kid that drives parents crazy wanting in for a time, then back out. It's a rare occasion if he stays outside overnight, and usually he's home very early the next morning if he does. Sonny left our house one Thursday afternoon, but this time he didn't come home Friday morning.
Friday was a very busy day for us, we didn't notice him gone until after we returned from work Friday evening. We called for him all Friday night to no avail. We posted on PawBoost and as many local lost/found pet sites as we could. We received a lot of great tips on things we could do to help get Sonny back such as putting used litter and opened cat food outside.
We also have a pet door on the house door going into the garage. When we realized Friday night that Sonny was missing we left the garage door up about a half foot for Sonny to have access back into the house. After printing flyers and taking them to neighbors, we followed other suggestions that came to us through PawBoost.
Sonny showed up coming through the pet door at 3 am on Sunday meowing and hungry. PawBoost helped pick up our spirits by automatically getting our lost kitty post out. PawBoost provided us a way to take at least some control on the situation. I'd recommend PawBoost as a great place to start when you realize your pet is missing."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sonny's alert. It was one happy morning when Sonny returned home!
"It happened in the blink of an eye. A distraction occurred during a delivery to our house that allowed our precious tabby cat, Val, to slip off unnoticed into the big unknown. We noticed Val missing and called for him. When he didn't come right away, we knew we needed help.
Val is chipped, so that was our first call. Our next step was getting an alert through PawBoost. We printed the flyers that were generated and went door to door asking our neighbors to keep an eye out for us. We also read really great advice and tips and were given support by people who saw our alert on Facebook.
We called for Val throughout the day and just as it was turning dark we heard a faint meow. With flashlight in hand we slowly walked in that direction calling out to Val. We saw the reflection of his eyes, then we saw him in a far field. He was a frightened baby, but he was found! The support and the advice given by everyone who had seen the alert kept us strong for Val and got him safely home."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Val's alert. He is home safe and sound :)
"Connor and I were at a friend's house in Troutman in a fenced in backyard when Connor managed to slip through the fence. He was just recently adopted from a shelter and he was a stray prior to the shelter, so he was used to running from people and finding food on the streets. Through PawBoost, I met a Good Samaritan who offered to help catch Connor, who was spotted multiple times in and around the neighborhood.
The Good Samaritan helped us transport and set up a humane trap, which we ultimately caught Connor in after TEN days! I would recommend PawBoost to a friend because Connor's post was shared hundreds of times, which means hundreds of people knew that my dog was out there missing.
People shared my post, offered advice, and helped search for my dog, all because they saw a PawBoost post on Facebook. Several people came together for one common goal; catching Connor! I am thankful beyond measure for each person who saw my post and shared it. If you're debating creating a PawBoost post for your lost pet, do it! It was well worth it."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Connor's alert. A special thank you to the Good Samaritan for being apart of this happy reunion :)
"I have had Snowbelle for almost 10 years and she is a very special kitty. Everyone says that about their pets, but it’s true that every pet is special; a pet is a someone, not a something.
My fiancé, Chris, and I are in the process of moving to a new home, so we have had several strangers in and out of our house lately to move furniture and tour the home. Somehow, Snowbelle escaped during all of the commotion.
When we discovered that Snowbelle was missing, Chris and I both took off work. I cried as we visited animal shelters, called local veterinarians, and placed missing posters around our neighborhood. We knew that we had to alert as many people as possible. That’s why we contacted PawBoost. This organization can do far more for a missing pet than an owner can do alone.
Several community members commented on our PawBoost post, and one person suggested leaving Snowbelle’s litter box outside. Snowbelle was missing for around 20 hours total, but we found her on our porch about an hour after leaving the box there. I think that tip was crucial.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to other pet owners - their system quickly and effectively notifies people in the area. Snowbelle gives PawBoost a big high-five!"

"We recently moved to a new city and while we were unpacking Bailey got out. Since he doesn’t know the area well we knew he went exploring and didn’t know his way back since many of the homes look the same around here.
A fellow neighbor saw his PawBoost post on Facebook and realized that he had seen him around his backyard. We immediately went over to the area and starting calling from him. Almost immediately he came out from a bush running over to us. We’re now back home blessed and thankful that he’s okay.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to help find your pet or report a found pet! They help get the word out faster and across many more places than I could’ve on my own."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Bailey's alert. Bailey is safe and sound with his family :)
"Marley went missing one Saturday when we let her outside. We’d been testing the outdoors for about 2 weeks and all of the cats seemed to LOVE it! Later that night we went to get everyone in and 2 of our cats never came home. We didn’t worry too much, as they’d stayed overnight before and were on the porch the next morning.
Sunday morning rolled around and our one cat, Sadie, was there but Marley was not. We began to worry so I started posting on social media and calling for her. Monday morning came and still, nothing. We were beginning to think the worst had happened. After posting on every social media site I could find and posting pictures of her around town, we thought the only thing we could do is wait.
Come Monday night my mom, husband and I were getting ready to call it quits, but I stayed on our driveway as the road was finally quiet and closed my eyes to see if that would heighten my other senses, specially hearing. I called out 'Marley' and sure enough I heard the faintest of noises. We called again and we heard her again!
We kept calling and trying to track and before long, we were at our next door neighbor’s house banging on her door because we could hear Marley in their detached garage! I went over to the window on the side of the garage and jimmied it open and immediately Marley jumped in my arms. Since her long and scary adventure, she has been more affectionate than ever and genuinely seems more appreciative of our home.
PawBoost helped us feel as if we weren’t alone on this scary journey of missing Marley. We received messages of hope, encouragement, prayers, and suggestions for other places to check for her. Thank you PawBoost for caring for our animals and giving us humans a place to go to communicate together as a community."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Marley's alert. Marley's family hopes others find inspiration to hold on to the idea that their pet may still be out there :)
"Charcoal has always been an indoor cat. His brother Smokey was an outdoor cat and passed away in January. Since then Charcoal has been heart broken (as diagnosed by our vet) and will occasionally sneak outside to look for his brother. Charcoal never leaves the yard and typically comes in within five minutes of being outside. We aren’t sure what happened exactly but Charcoal got out one night and didn’t come back.
PawBoost definitely helped get the word out that Charcoal had gone missing. It was so reassuring to know that I could post on here and so many people would see it and comment. It’s a wonderful way to spread the news quickly when you are going through something so devastating. Many people saw my post and called or texted me. Finally, someone called me and was 100% sure it was him.
I went to their house and cried tears of joy when I saw Charcoal sitting in a bush on the side of the house. I can’t think of a happier moment in my life! I would definitely recommend PawBoost because it is a quick and easy way to spread the word about your lost pet.
They update you with emails and it is reassuring to know the word is out and that people are searching for your cat with you. We were able to notify the Rescue Squad for free and alert people through Facebook. It was a huge help in reuniting me with my fur baby and I am forever thankful!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Charcoal's alert. Charcoal has been reunited with his family and their hearts are full :)
"Our screen door frame got bent and the door was not latching close. By the time we noticed it was cracked open Binx had already escaped from the side door overnight.
Neighbors about 11 blocks away found him in their front yard during nighttime crying for food. They found our information by calling local vet offices that kept our information on file when we began making reports that Binx was missing. Those that found him also viewed the poster I posted online to see pictures before calling.
PawBoost on social media was super useful to help alert those in our area, and so many community members joined our search and supported us for the entire 3 months that he was missing. I am so grateful for PawBoost and all the resources we went through in our efforts to find our baby!
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost! It's safe to say that having help with online exposure through the Facebook post helped us tremendously in creating an unofficial community search party. We could not have found our Binx without this outpouring of support from the community!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Binx's alert. A special thank you to Donna and Cathy for taking him in :)
"Ginger is an escape artist. I'm not sure how she got out, but she has always come back in a few hours in the past. I left her home with a sitter one weekend and she got out the night I left. I started to post her on a couple of lost & found community pages on Facebook and someone recommended posting on PawBoost.
I got a tip that she was spotted 2 miles away at Stater Brother's with a picture from one of the Facebook posts. It looked like my girl, and I was shocked that she ran so far away. I drove down there with no luck. The next morning I got more texts, pictures and posts that put her near Shady Grove Park in Chino. I've taken my dogs there before and they love that dog friendly park.
I went to the park, asked people if they had seen her running loose with no luck at first. Drove around the neighborhood asking anyone out on the street, then went back to the park. Two people had seen her at the park 5 minutes prior, so I started combing the neighborhood in the direction they said she went and then I found her!
I would recommend PawBoost! It was a combined effort. I am so grateful as I was preparing for the worst. I hope to return the favor to my neighbors in helping them locate their lost fur babies."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ginger's alert. She was so happy and relieved to see her mama :)
"I let Taco out to go potty with my other dog Allison. At night, they typically just go really quickly and come right back. They must have been chasing something. Luckily, Taco came back on his own, albeit 5 hours later.
PawBoost is great! I’ve used it before when I found a bloodhound in New Orleans where I used to live. I like that it’s a well known name and people know to go there and check. Facebook groups can be hard to find and posts get buried. This is clear cut and easy.
I would always recommend PawBoost because it's the go to for finding an aggregated list of missing/found animals in a given area. I first set up an alert on Taco’s microchip and then went straight to PawBoost to post a flyer."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Taco's alert. Whether your fur baby is missing for 5 hours, 5 days or 5 months, never give up hope :)
"My little girl Daisy went missing one Thursday around 3:30pm while I was at work. She had direct access to my enclosed balcony to relieve herself during the day and must have gotten spooked and jumped over my 5ft tall balcony wall. When I arrived home later that evening, I immediately knew my sweet little girl was gone.
I drove around DTLA for hours that night, posting fliers in hopes that someone saw her or had any details about her whereabouts; I came home empty handed and devastated. I decided to do a quick search on Google for lost and found pets and saw that PawBoost had a large following and has had many success stories. So I signed up! I wanted to be your next success story and now I am!
Friday around 4pm a lovely lady named Patty, saw a found dog ad on Facebook from your Los Angeles, CA page. A gentleman had posted about finding a black, female pup and was hoping to find her owner(s)! Well, shortly after she saw that, she saw my post on Facebook via PawBoost in regards to my black female pup that had gone missing the day prior!
Putting two and two together, she reached out to me and provided me with his information. I immediately called the gentleman who found her, thanked him profusely for keeping my little girl safe and I picked her up shortly thereafter.
I truly do not have ENOUGH good things to say about PawBoost. You are such a blessing and I am forever thankful!! This little girl is my life and I need her just as much as she needs me. I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to anyone. You are fast, efficient and effective. So much love for you all. Thank you!"

"The latch on our gate wasn’t latched properly after someone cut our grass and when we let Hunter out to potty the wind had blown the gate opened and he got out. He was missing for 15 hours.
We posted him on several sites on Facebook, PawBoost and Nextdoor. Someone saw his picture on Nextdoor and called me. They also went outside and called his name and he went right to her. She kept him until I arrived to get him.
I recommend your site because I believe every resource should be used when trying to find your lost fur baby. I also like that your app messaged me often with updates. We are all so happy to have Hunter home."

"I believe Darcy slipped out of the house through the front door as me and my husband were leaving to drop him off to work one Saturday morning. I usually look to make sure he's far from the door when I am leaving but this time I just didn't look well enough and I did not see him slip out.
PawBoost helped me create nice posters and spread the word on Facebook, which is always helpful as the more people see it the better. I was putting up the posters I printed from PawBoost and as I was sticking the last one up, quite a walk from home, I heard a kitten crying from under a car.
I went in someone's front yard (sorry) and found him under a car all dirty and crying in distress. I started crying too - but happy tears. It's always worth it not to give up a search for a little feline friend, considering this was day 3 of him missing in terrible rainy weather.
I would recommend PawBoost because your website helped to spread the word and I was able to create good missing posters. And even though I found him myself, thanks to your posts there were many people aware of his situation. He's happy, tired and resting now."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Darcy's alert. Darcy's mom is over the moon her fur baby is home :)
"Ralph escaped by jumping out the front door at 1am one Monday morning despite my attempts to open the door only a crack so I could enter. Ralph is not an outside cat. I barely saw him jump out. But when I went up stairs he was nowhere to be seen so I went back outside to search. I searched for at least an hour - down the street, in the alley, etc. calling his name and listening. No results.
I finally went to bed thinking he would return in the morning. He knows how to get up the back steps and my husband gets up early, but no Ralph in the morning. My husband searched everywhere. We immediately put up signs, told all of the neighbors, and listed him on PawBoost and Lost Kitty.
We knew he would be hiding during the day because there is construction next to our house which creates a lot of noise. Monday night and Tuesday early am, I searched everywhere again with no luck. Then, miraculously my husband found him in a small opening between our fence and the wall of the new house under construction next door. Ralph let him carry him upstairs which is very unusual.
When I got home, I immediately realized that his leg was hurt and this, of course, is why he did not return home right away. I took him to the Chicago Vet Emergency care and they examined him. Luckily, nothing serious. We just needed to let him rest.
PawBoost really helped me. Wonderful people said don't give up - he might be very close to home. Then they gave suggestions of what to put on the porch. I would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone who has lost a pet."

"Zeus went missing one Sunday. We are not exactly sure how all three dogs escaped since the gate to the back of the house was closed. All three dogs decided to go out for a stroll down our block and only two came back. I came across PawBoost on Monday when I started googling flyer templates to post around the neighborhood. I put my information and all of Zeus’ information and immediately his post was up on your Facebook page.
Five days later, I was at church talking to a friend of mine about Zeus. She told me to keep my hopes up and that she sent out our picture of Zeus to other friends who lived around the area. She then told me about the Ring app. It’s an app where people who have these camera doorbells post things that they have seen happen around the neighborhood, lost pets, and more. I went home and decided to give it a try and there he was!!
I would definitely, I mean definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend! It’s crazy to me that in just a few days, Zeus’s post was shared 100 times. I can’t thank everyone enough for being on the lookout not just for Zeus but for all these other pups that have gotten lost, found, and/or been reunited with their families."

"One Friday morning my sister and I were getting ready to take a dove we rescued to a rehabilitation place in Lafayette. When we walked outside there was a dog in the front yard. He was super sweet, a little timid, but came right to us. We immediately looked but he did not have tags on his collar.
We put him on my dog’s outside leash and gave him some food and water. Because he was so sweet, calm, well trained, good with kids, and clean, we knew he belonged to someone and had not been gone long. Since he had no name tag, we decided to call him Buddy.
My sister has rescued and rehomed a number of pets in the area and is heavily involved with local organizations and groups. She immediately pinged her huge network and within hours we were able to get his picture and story up. Around 7pm, I was looking for other outreach methods and came across PawBoost. Within minutes I was able to complete the steps to get Buddy setup and his story shared.
Saturday morning we put up about 50 PawBoost flyers in surrounding neighborhoods including a few local businesses. Putting up flyers seems a bit old school, but it was really the only other choice we had at this point. Sunday morning came and I’m driving around with both Buddy and my dog. We had just gotten a coffee at the local coffee shop where we’d put a flyer up the day before. Asked around to see if they’d had any inquiries, and as we were pulling out my cell phone rang. It was Buddy’s dad!
Within the hour, I drove Buddy home and it was the sweetest reunion ever. His mom was crying, I was crying, and Buddy, whose real name is Max, was thrilled. I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to anyone who loses a pet or finds a pet. On the social media side, we had over 100 shares in the first 24 hours from the PawBoost post alone. That was more than all of the shares combined from our other posts. And, the flyers are automatically generated so it takes zero time to create and print them."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Max's alert. He is home safe and sound :)
"We had just moved to Knoxville and we were having some work done on our home's alarm system. When the alarm company's technician accidentally left a door open our 13 year old black lab mix named Biz got out. He was out for about a half hour before I realized he was missing.
I don't know many of our neighbors yet or much about local pet resources so a friend set up an alert for me on PawBoost. During the next few hours it was so comforting to read the messages of support posted on PawBoost and there were great suggestions about contacting a local animal shelter, etc.
It turns out that Biz headed down to the river and took a swim (he is a lab mix after all) and a neighbor of ours noticed him and luckily had a leash for him and took him to her house. Through word of mouth we were able to bring Biz home in about 4 hours.
We are so grateful to our new neighbors but also extremely grateful for all the PawBoost folks who responded to the post. Being new to Knoxville, we are blown away by the kind and generous community that we are getting to know here. Thanks PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Biz's alert. Biz is home safe and sound :)
"This unfortunate incident started during the night when 3 alerts alarmed due to flash flooding and thunderstorm warnings. I made the mistake of leaving our back door ajar when I was lifting the patio umbrella that fell over from strong winds. Naturally, Noodle was with me on the deck. But suddenly, there was thunder. I looked back and Noodle was gone.
My mistake, I assumed she ran back in the house to her safe spot upstairs in our bedroom. After I secured the umbrella, I ran upstairs to check on Noodle since the thunder kept getting louder continuously. As I got to the top steps, I saw her from the window. She was next door running so scared further away from our house since the thunder got worse.
By the time I ran to the front of our house, she thankfully crossed the street safely and I then ran after her. It started pouring by then and thunder kept rolling. She just kept getting more scared and ran faster and I’m sure she hid under a bush which then I could not tell where she was.
Although I was calling out to her the thunder was so loud. I called my family and we all searched for hours with no luck. The rain tapered down and my husband and I searched until 2am. Around 4am I checked online and started posting ads everywhere. However, PawBoost was most helpful as her post was shared over 100 times.
The rain finally stopped and we planned to search again. At 9:30am I received a phone call from an unfamiliar number, my husband answered and it was a lady from the neighborhood that spotted Noodle running into a neighbor’s open yard. Sure enough, my husband called out her name and she darted out the open yard. He grabbed her and she was so excited.
Huge thanks to PawBoost for spreading the word. We are so blessed that caring people got Noodle back to us. We definitely recommend PawBoost should this ever happen to you, which I hope never happens to anyone ever. However, if it does, PawBoost is your best bet."

"Geo got outside when I was trying to leave the apartment one Sunday night. My other dog also got out, however he came back after about 10 minutes. Geo ran off towards the back of the house which is surrounded by fields and woods. After about an hour I decided to reach out to my family two hours away to help with the search since I recently moved to the area.
They drove up and we searched all night long and throughout the next day. We called local shelters, posted all over social media, posted 400 flyers in surround areas, and posted on PawBoost. Around 3 am on Tuesday morning my other dog, Gallo, started to act odd and was pacing around the apartment.
I decided to get up and let him outside because I was hoping he would be able to lead me to Geo. When I went outside Geo was there peaking around the corner of the building. He was shaking and wet but kissing me and Gallo all over.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because it truly helps to spread the word about missing and found pets. I feel that increases the number of eyes that are looking for your lost baby and they give good tips on how to search for them. PawBoost may not have directly dropped Geo off at my door, however it helped give me hope to see the 200+ shares Geo’s ad got. Thank you PawBoost for helping me!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Geo's alert. He is home safely now and is getting a lot of cuddles for his return :)
"My large sulcata tortoise Dartanian went missing one Friday when the front gate to our house was left open. After a thorough search in the immediate area with no success I knew missing flyers had to go up right away and stumbled across PawBoost. I had no idea how thorough PawBoost is in every arena that comes to reuniting pets and families!
Once I filled out the information I started getting immediate responses. Many of them were to show emotional support which is really what I needed at the time as I was so distraught. And the urgency of PawBoost members spreading the word to other social media platforms just to help me gave me great hope.
The very next day I got a direct message through PawBoost from the lovely lady who found my Dartanian and had thoughtfully brought him to the SPCA. I owe a debt of gratitude to the PawBoost Rescue Squad and Julia who found him for bringing my tortoise, who is my whole world, and I back together!
I have been telling everyone I know about PawBoost ever since I found your site and I too will be checking in each day to provide emotional support and spread the word as fast as you guys did for me when the next pet goes missing. This is by far the most helpful, necessary website that everyone needs to know about! A million thanks again to PawBoost."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Dartanian's alert. Happy 5th birthday Dartanian! He made it home just in time to celebrate :)
"Bella was home alone with my other fur baby, Coop. We had a passing thunderstorm with high winds while I was gone. We think that the winds caused my carport door to blow open and when Bella heard the neighbor's cars start up next door she assumed it was me returning home.
She always greets me at the door, so when she got to the door she realized the door was open and was able to push the screen door open to get outside. The screen door closed behind her and she was unable to get back into the house.
I reached out through all social media platforms, such as Facebook lost/found groups, PawBoost, local veterinarians’ offices Facebook pages, etc... PawBoost helped by automatically posting the ad to reach more people and spread the word.
We had a number of people searching for Bella on foot and by vehicle. We searched all day! Through social media, we were able to gain knowledge of legit sightings of Bella. It narrowed our search radius by a lot. Since Bella is a senior dog, she does not move very fast, so we knew she wouldn’t be far from the last sighting.
Right before dark, something told me to go drive around one more time. I went to one of the areas we had searched multiple times during the day. I happened to see something white in the front yard of a family home. I was about 400 yards away at the time, so I honestly figured when I got up close, it would end up being a trash bag or something similar. However; I was wrong! It was my Bella!
The owner of the home told me that she had just wandered up about the time I spotted her. I think Bella and I were both in shock when we realized our eyes weren’t deceiving us. Tears of JOY ran down my face! She was missing somewhere between 15-20 hours.
I definitely would recommend PawBoost to a friend. The more people you have sharing your pet's photo, the more likely you are to reunite with your pet."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Bella's alert. Bella's mama is so happy to have her baby home where she belongs :)
"In the haste of moving our garage for our moving date, Benji slipped out as garage door just happened to malfunction and open as it went down. We didn’t realize he slipped out until he didn’t come for dinner that evening and that started the frantic search.
An incredibly kind neighbor down the street found him in her backyard. She cared for him for a couple of days until she found him on PawBoost, and messaged us! I can’t express how much gratitude I have for her. She kept him safe and fed on those stressful nights and I could never thank her enough.
I would 100% recommend PawBoost, without a doubt. What you guys do is fundamental in creating reunions. It spreads the word and gets people to keep an eye and ear out for lost pets. In my situation, we’re moving and I've no doubt I wouldn’t of reunited with Benji as quickly as I did without you guys.
Thank you so much PawBoost, everyone who shared, everyone who kept an eye out - for all the prayers and well wishes. He’s home safe and sound, and I can breathe again."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Benji's alert. He was found in a wonderful neighbor's back yard, and is now receiving plenty of love and treats from his family :)
"Duchess disappeared from our backyard when she was let out to use the bathroom around our boy's bed time last night. Unbeknownst to me, someone had left the side gate unlatched and when I went to let her back in, she was gone. What complicated the matter is she is also blind!
I looked everywhere and called the two emergency vets in our area, telling them what happened and that she was microchipped. Being after 9 on a Friday no other offices were open to help. There was a massive heat advisory in our area and I was starting to panic. It had cooled down to the low 80s but if we didn’t find her before morning it was going to be high 90s!
I went to Facebook and a friend recommended PawBoost which would reach more people in our area. I filled out her info and at 4:30 AM I got a call from a complete stranger saying she thinks she saw Duchess. She’d seen the PawBoost alert but Duchess wouldn’t come to the woman so she called the number listed.
My husband (bless him) got up and drove over to the next neighborhood to see if he could spot her. Twenty minutes later he called with Duchess in the car, safe and unharmed. She was hot and mildly dehydrated but she is fully recovered now. I don’t think we would have found Duchess in time without PawBoost. It saved her life!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Duchess's alert. As soon as she got home she got plenty of water and a cold bath :)
"Zola is a very nervous dog, she follows me everywhere. I think what happened was she followed me into the garage when I was leaving and I didn't notice. Then when I drove away she must have followed the car for as long as possible. She is a Vizsla, miniature Greyhound, Spaniel mix which means she is an extremely fast runner and kept up for awhile.
She ended up in a nearby neighborhood before she realized she was lost, then traveled back towards home the best she could remember. Many people spotted her during her travels home, but she wouldn't let anyone get near her. I used a number of resources to get her back and PawBoost was one of them. Many friends and family searched for her on both foot and by car.
In the end it was me hitting the pavement with lost dog flyers and passing them out to every person I ran into whether it be dog walkers, mail carriers, PG&E workers, gardeners, or anyone out and about. A few people said they saw her, but wouldn't let them get close, so she would just run.
One woman said Zola was watching her from the sidewalk into her kitchen window and then she was gone, this was an hour before. I handed her a flyer, jumped back on my bike and continued the search. A couple hours later the same woman from earlier called and said Zola came back to her house and she was hiding in some bushes.
The woman just stood watch but didn't approach her while I made my way to her. When I got to the house Zola slowly came out of the bushes. Her body was very soar making it hard for her to walk, but her tail was definitely not damaged, it was wagging a hundred miles an hour.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost along with all other forms of social media. Many people during my search asked if I had posted with PawBoost. From this stressful experience my advice would be, get out there, be personable, make connections, use social media and get your community involved on multiple levels."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Zola's alert. She is now home safe and sound :)
"I'm still not sure how it happened, but when I got home from work one of every pet parent's worst nightmares of the gate being open happened. After calling and calling, it became immediately obvious neither of my two young basset hounds were still at home. As I walked up the street calling their names, one came running towards me but Cassie was no where to be found.
After searching for a couple of hours, I stopped and posted her information on PawBoost and Facebook before going back out to search. Within 2 hours, someone replied that a basset had been taken to the local shelter and included a link with the picture from the shelter's Facebook page.
Other sites did end up coming through as well, but PawBoost was the first to let me know she was safe. Due to it being after hours, her brother and I had to wait until the shelter opened the next morning before getting her back where she belonged, but it was a much more restful night knowing she was safe.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost. It was a free way to get input from locals to give me peace of mind until the shelters opened up the next day. I had seen PawBoost alerts before for other people's pets, and can't even say how glad I am to have another resource to help people get their family members back."

"I was traveling down Rock Quarry Rd in Southeast Raleigh one Tuesday. It was 98 degrees, the traffic was heavy, and the dog looked very panicked. Four lanes of vehicles were slowly dodging her as she navigated across the road and into the Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School parking lot.
I pulled over and called for her. She came willingly and laid down in the air conditioning of my backseat. I used several social media and pet advocacy outlets to reach as many people as possible. PawBoost was the first site I posted on and it is also the site that generated the most shares.
The family contacted me through a different Facebook group, but I know that PawBoost was integral in the reunion of Bobbi. I would recommend PawBoost, because it is user friendly and offered helpful tips via email."

"My husband and I went to church one Sunday and there was a dog that had been there for 3 days. Others tried to capture her but didn't have any luck. Also, the church is on a major street so we did not want to spook her. We put some food and water down and sat in the grass close by. After she was done eating and she saw we were not trying to come after her, we were able to pet her and get a leash on her.
She had a part in her fur that looked like she had recently worn a collar. She had also recently had a litter of pups, but they were not with her. However, she looked healthy and taken care of. At the time, we thought she had been dumped and maybe she was, but not by the true owner. Now we think when she first was lost, a third party took her and then left her after she had the pups.
Anyway, we went home and posted on many sites and had her checked for a microchip. We thought we had them all covered, but on the second day, someone recommended PawBoost, so I posted there as well. In less than a day, we got a phone call from the true owner that we had found his Lucy Maria.
Apparently, Lucy Maria had been missing since April and she was originally posted as lost on PawBoost. As the owner was still monitoring the site, he had seen her picture on your Facebook page for Glendale, AZ. Looking at the picture he posted in April, you could see that it was her by small details. She went missing at 4 months old and was now almost 8 months, so there were some differences.
Without PawBoost, I don't think this reunion would have happened. Thank you PawBoost, after only a few days we already had grown attached as she is so sweet. However, the ideal situation is for her to be with her people and we are very glad that we were able to help make that happen."
