Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"Pistachio was born to run and spends a lot of his days on his Grandma's acreage. He just runs his heart out and chases bunnies and deer, but he always come back for some H20 and loving. One day he strayed a little too far and a wonderful family in a nearby neighborhood welcomed him into their home to keep him safe.
It seems that we both posted on PawBoost within a close time frame - we both wanted to get him home! Within 2 minutes of my PawBoost blast and Facebook post, I had comments and text messages connecting me to Katelyn, who had posted both on PawBoost and her own Facebook.
I don't have much of a social media presence, but I searched for 'lost dog posting' and PawBoost was the first listing, and I am so thankful because it directly brought my baby back home to me and his Grandma and Grandpa. I am so thankful for PawBoost - excellent service and brought my family back together. THANK YOU!"

"I had always been a dog mom until Battle Cat strolled up to us late one night. At that moment she claimed us as her humans. I was clueless on how to take care of a cat since at that point I was strictly a dog mom. That very next morning we were at my vet to see if she was chipped, nope.
Checked with all the shelters and rescues to see if anyone had lost a cat. I was told by the professionals to consider fostering as it was very cold outside and she’d have a better chance with me than the pound. So my husband and I decided foster this new feline friend.
My intentions were not to get attached, but I am proud to say she's a foster failure. She and I were a perfect match. Battle Cat came to me when I was dealing with PTSD and anxiety. She has helped me find strength. She is like my shadow, Battle is always close by!
Battle Cat's accidental escape happened between 1am and 5 am. Honestly I’m not a 100% sure but the screen in one of our kitchen windows was ajar. I woke up on my own which is weird, because Battle usually wakes me up for a snuggle and then breakfast.
I did my morning routine jazz and still no sign of her. At this point I was worried. I began to frantically look for her for about 10 minutes, nothing. I completely started to freak! She was not inside and then that’s when I saw the screen.
I have been involved in a few rescues so I have made some friends who are far more informed than I am or was at that moment. I called one friend who gave me the most calming and supportive advice. I was armed a handful of links to get the word out about her missing.
PawBoost definitely helped get the word out and allowed some pretty cool people to support and advise me in a manner I didn’t quite expect. I was truly humbled and I felt my faith in humanity restored! I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to anyone and everyone. The individuals who are apart of this organization truly understand the love we have for our pets."

"Chase was an indoor/outdoor cat. Mostly indoor but would occasionally go outside to roam or come outside with us when we were playing in the yard. He would normally come home the same day, then it became normal for him to be gone maybe for two days. Then this last time, he must’ve got a little too curious and wandered too far and got turned around. He was missing for 3 weeks.
We were reunited with Chase through perseverance and the power of social media. Between PawBoost and multiple local Facebook pages in my area, the posts got shared and the right person saw it and contacted me when she found him and got him home to us safely. I 100% would recommend PawBoost. I thoroughly like that when you report a lost or found pet, it automatically posts to Facebook.
As in my case, the power of social media is so strong and is how a lot of animals and owners get reunited nowadays. Also, I really like that it has notifications about lost/found pets in your area. I especially like that it is free to use but gives you the option to pay if you want to do a little more. Wonderful app!"

"Scooby Doi went missing during a walk one Wednesday. We only had him for 4 days so he was still a little timid. I have two toddlers that insisted on bringing their babydoll strollers on the walk with us. About 5 minutes in, a wheel popped off a stroller. I bent down to fix the wheel and Scooby got spooked.
The leash is retractable and started 'chasing' him and he freaked out. I tried to stop him but couldn’t go far as I had 2 toddlers with me. I ran to a neighbor's house and asked them to watch the girls while I tried to go after him, but I didn’t find him so I went back and got my kids and car.
I drove for 5 hours and no luck spotting him. While driving I took a break to report him missing to my microchip company, on Facebook, and Nextdoor. Some volunteers looked for him as well, but no one had any sightings. We were all worried because we didn’t want him to get caught on something and not be able to access food and water.
The next day, myself and some volunteers searched again with no success. Friday I created 3 signs, two went to the entrances to our addition, and one at a golf course nearby. More driving to find him with no sightings. Saturday I had 100 flyers printed and posted them at nearby gas stations and restaurants. We walked door to door with the flyers and discovered that one person saw him on Wednesday. We continued our efforts in the direction according to this sighting.
Sunday morning a woman Facebook messaged me saying she found him. She saw the lost dog notices and recognized him. He was almost 10 miles from home. He was found without his harness, leash, or tags. Our thought is his tags busted off while getting his harness and leash off, which he had apparently caught on something.
I would recommend PawBoost to a friend as I know it was seen by people of the community. Thank you so much! I can’t express the gratitude we have for all the help in finding him."

"Mr. Prez went missing from our yard. Usually we let our cats outside because it gives them a little bit more room than what we can offer in our little apartment. We believe he may have gotten freaked out by a squirrel and went running. My partner and I searched for him that Friday morning around midnight. We knew generally where he may have gone luckily.
PawBoost was definitely helpful because a neighbor around the corner from us posted on a lost animal Facebook page about finding him under their porch. When I made his lost alert through your website others were able to guide me to her post. We found him half a block away from where he was last seen from our neighbor's place!
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend or anyone who may have lost their pet. Without the guidance and support we received from everyone we wouldn't have known where to begin. It was helpful to know who to contact and what methods may work to get him back home. It also prompted me to update my cat's microchips which I am so thankful they have.
Thank you PawBoost for all that you do for worried pet owners. I know with your help lost animals can make it home to their owners. That was definitely an eye opener and we will be so much more cautious about our cats because of it."

"My pool company was working in the backyard and when they left they did not shut the gate. I didn't know it was open and I let Rocko out to play. When the weather is nice it isn't unusual for him to stay out for 30 minutes. I went to call him in after 30 or 40 minutes, and when he didn't come I discovered the open gate. I walked and drove the neighborhood calling him in ever widening circles for about 3 hours.
I came home and began searching how to report a lost dog in my city. I posted my info on PawBoost at 10pm. At 10:38pm someone called to say she thought she had my dog. I described him and it was Rocko. By 10:55pm I was back home with Rocko. It was absolutely my post on PawBoost that got Rocko home that evening."

"Love went missing because my mom and dad accidentally forgot to put her invisible fence collar back on her. Even though my dad was still out and about doing chores around the yard, she still got out of the yard and we were unable to find her for close to 17 hours. She has a bad back, left leg.
When Love went missing we later found out that she had accidentally slid down the embankment into the river behind our house. She managed to make it to a little rocky island in the middle of the river, but could not get back due to her bad leg and it being very hard to swim because of it. It is a miracle she made it to the rocky island in the middle of the river in the first place!
After Love had been missing for around 15 hours, my mother approached some neighbors and they mentioned they had seen a little beagle out on a patch of rocks in the middle of the river while they were sitting out by the river earlier. They said she had just been laying there so they could not tell if she was alive and just resting or worse.
After that, we rushed to where they'd seen her and ended up finding her. Some nice people who were kayaking actually grabbed her for us and brought her across the river to us. We have our baby back!! We are very grateful for this outlet. We ultimately found her through word of mouth and platforms like PawBoost get the word out there.
PawBoost gave us the tip to check with neighbors and that is how we ultimately found Love. It also gave me a better peace of mind while searching for Love. Knowing that others wanted to help and were sharing her as missing on social media helped give me hope that she would be found. Thank you so much PawBoost for all of your help!!"

"Tiger went missing in October 2019. I was in Hawaii on vacation when the Kincade fire got bad so my older brother evacuated Tiger to his house. Tiger ended up scratching through my brother's screen and escaped out the window into a neighborhood he’s never seen before. My mom, brother, best friends and I have all spent hours searching for him. I’ve been consistently posting on Nextdoor, Facebook, and looking at the lost and found pets of Sonoma County pages everyday.
We posted and handed out hundreds of flyers to neighbors, mailmen, and friends. I had people calling and texting thinking they spotted him but hadn’t had any luck. I posted on another Facebook page, Bennett Valley Strong, which is where he went missing. Within 20 minutes of posting a lady named Tammy called me and said she was 90% sure she was feeding my cat the last few weeks.
As I talked to her more she explained she had seen him around the end of last year but he wasn’t in her yard too much because they had a territorial male cat. Unfortunately Tammy’s male cat passed away, but that gave Tiger more room to roam. I visited her property 3 times and had absolutely no luck. The last time we went to look we were able to see pictures that she took and immediately knew it was a match.
We couldn’t get him to come when we called but since we knew it was him we made a plan to try a live trap. I got home and just cracked open a beer to relax and my best friend called me crying. Apparently after I left, she went to search and spotted Tiger under a car. She called for him but he didn’t go to her.
She called my brother to help and as soon as he got out of the car and said 'teeegs!' Tiger lit up and he started meowing. My brother was able to grab him and they drove him home. We all cried and hugged. He was so happy to be home. He snuggled up so quick and things are pretty much back to normal. It’s been a heartbreaking (almost) 7 months, but an even better reunion."

"Finn was missing for 7 days. We were astounded by the number of people who launched a district-wide dragnet to search for Finn. The overwhelming, immediate, and continued support of our greater community included children, a large group of second graders and their teacher, teenagers, adults of all ages and backgrounds, dog (and cat!) owners, hikers, runners, bikers, and do-gooders of all sorts.
People scoured their neighborhoods looking for Finn. They posted and handed out flyers (over 700 total!), spread the word by mouth, social media and neighborhood list serves, made their own posters, organized search parties, and called or texted me daily inquiring where they should go looking for him. Others showered me with an outpouring of love, concern, sympathy, advice, well wishes and prayers.
We are both moved and touched that so many individuals rallied around Finn. As terrible as that week was for me, it was also a wonderful reminder of the depth of people’s kindness and a visible demonstration of what an amazing and caring neighborhood and community we live in. Ultimately, an alert pedestrian’s phone call secured Finn’s safe return home and proved that it only takes one person’s thoughtfulness to change someone’s life very quickly for the better.
Especially in these difficult and socially-distanced times, it has been truly inspiring to see a community come out and come together, and we are so honored to be members of this community. The relief and happiness we both felt the day he came home and since are indescribable! Any remaining fears were dispelled by a trip to the vet who gave Finn a clean bill of health.
From the bottom of our hearts, Finn and I would like to say THANK YOU to every single person who played a part in this massive effort to help a lost dog. Much love and well wishes to our amazing community. "

"Niko is about 8 months and he is really curious. I was giving him a bath on the back porch and when we were done I brought him in with me, but I forgot to close the door and he ran out without me noticing. I looked for him for hours and my friend helped me post him on PawBoost.
I received a call from a lady that said her friend saw Niko trying to cross the street. The lady got him and gave him to her friend that lives near the area. She was looking until she noticed there was a picture of Niko posted on PawBoost around the same area and decided to contact me and reunite me with him!
I would recommend this website so much because it is an easy way to find our lost pets faster and many people share it. Pets are a part of us and the fact that we have this tool in case of an emergency is just wonderful. I am super thankful for all of your help because I wouldn’t have been able to do it by myself."

"We took Toby to the veterinarian for his yearly shots and because of the Coronavirus restrictions the tech had to come to our car and pick up Toby. The carrier broke and Toby became frightened and ran. He was so frightened he would not even come to us. We spent the day calling and looking for him but to no avail.
The veterinary staff put humane traps out on the property hoping he would become hungry and get himself caught in the trap. I put up flyers, contacted the local animal shelter, newspaper, PawBoost, microchip company, and whatever we could think of. We were heartbroken. The veterinarians office is 20 miles from our home, but we still drove there at least twice a day looking for him.
After ten days, Toby got himself caught in one of the traps set out by the veterinary staff. What a relief this was to my family. We are so happy to have him home and I know he is glad to be home! PawBoost posted a picture and lost pet information on Facebook and we had many shares and comments.
PawBoost sends out Facebook posts immediately in the area where your pet went missing, keeps your personal information private, and is easy to use. I would recommend PawBoost to others who have lost their beloved pet. It definitely gives you hope!"

"Murphy is usually an indoor cat but sometimes we take her for walks and she LOVES being outdoors. She slipped outside when my family was letting one of our outdoor cats out, and we couldn’t find her anywhere in our yard.
We searched the whole neighborhood and asked our neighbors if they had seen her, but nobody had. I read a PawBoost article with tips on how to get our lost cat home safely and decided to relax and hope for the best. Amazingly, as soon as I did that she showed up at our door meowing to be let in!
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend. The amount of shares and positive comments helped me feel better immensely. Thank you guys so much for everything! I didn’t know about this resource before, and hopefully I don’t have to use it again (LOL) but if one of my pets ever goes missing again I know exactly where to go!"

"We just moved to Alaska from Georgia and we were getting our trampoline set up in the backyard. My husband, son and I were in and out of the house and somehow Digsby made a run for it without any of us noticing. We have always been very careful about him getting out. This is the first time in seven years it has happened.
I got a call from one of our neighbors around 1:30 the day I found Digsby. He said he saw him around 10:30 that morning and hadn’t had time to call until later as he was in a rush. I went out with my dog several times calling for him in that area. At 9pm I went out for the last time that night.
About an hour into looking my dog started acting weird. He started sniffing frantically and pulling me along down the street. He never does that so I followed him through a cross section in our neighborhood and along the edge of the side walk. We got to our house and he sat down and just looked at me. It was weird so I was suspicious.
We went around to the back and Digsby was crouched on the porch looking terrified. I was worried he was going to run away, but when I called him he ran into my arms. He was covered in dirt and looked like he hadn’t eaten for days, but other than that in good health. We were so lucky!
I was so scared when I realized Digsby escaped. He is the heart beat of our family. I got tips from people on how to help guide him back to our house. I put out the litter box, some clothes, and food for him every night. I’d have never known to do any of that without PawBoost.
The PawBoost community gave me support, hope, and fantastic advice. It also opened my eyes that others had lost their pets as well and I could do something to help them. In times I felt hopeless, just seeing others share Digsby’s post made me feel better. It felt good to know others cared that he got home to his family."

"Unknowingly the lock on our front door wasn’t working and it was a really windy night and the door pushed open. While we were asleep Clover escaped. I searched and searched and sat out on my front porch until midnight the next day hoping she’d come back. Finally I saw her across the street running to find a place to hide. I ran to get her and she came to my arms meowing and crying so happy to be safe.
PawBoost put the word out in case I hadn’t found her myself. I think it was helpful and she would’ve been found because so many people shared her flyer online. The internet is a very powerful place and getting the word out to your community about a lost pet through PawBoost can really help."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Clover's alert. Clover has been found and is safe at home with her best friend! Never give up on a lost pet ??
"I was sitting out on the front porch with my dog, and he came up to the fence. So now that I saw him, I couldn't just turn a blind eye and leave him running around. I didn’t want him to get hit by a car, or have someone hurt him because he’s a pit bull. All I had to do to catch him was go outside my gate and call him.
He hesitated for a little bit, but he came right up to me and started licking me. He was panting pretty heavily, so I had to go back inside the gate to get him a bowl of water, and surprisingly he waited at the gate for me. After he had some water, I put him on a leash and walked the neighborhood with him, asked several people if they knew where he lived with no luck.
At a loss for what to do next I came across your website, and within an hour of my post his owners drove up. There are only 3 houses he could have been with the location I put on the website, so either the owners saw the post or they were informed by someone who saw it. There is no question that they are the owners because the dog recognized their car right away, and they had been frantically looking for him.
He was such a sweet dog. I knew someone would be missing him, and I’m thrilled that he was reunited so quickly. My post was shared within minutes of posting, so your website does an amazing job with getting the word spread. I cannot say enough good things about this, and I have already recommended PawBoost, and will continue to recommend.
This beats the days of putting flyers up on every corner, and I’m still amazed at how fast I was able to get him to his family. Again, thank you, I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. I know if my dog was missing I would lose my mind, so as sweet as he was I’m happy he was able to get back with his family."

"Phillip got out of the house around 7pm one Saturday. Due to the fact he has been outside before, we thought he ventured off a little past our yard and would be back in the night. Just in case, we put posters up on the whole street, just to let people know he was missing in case anyone found him roaming.
PawBoost was so much help! It connected us with so many people who had tips and advice to helping us find Phillip. It also helped us share his information. Many of the comments on his missing post from PawBoost said to continue to look for Phillip at different times of the day. After 48 hours, I spent all day outside on my porch waiting for him to come home. But as the evening began to roll around, my mom and I wanted to look one more time before dark.
I was taking her back to where there were a lot of trees and bushes when we noticed an apartment that was being redone. Behind the apartment was a large pile of rubble. I was calling his name getting ready to keep moving on, when I heard a meow. I turned around and called his name again. That’s when I could see his little paws trying to dig his way out of the rubble. I was able to move enough stuff to get him.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost to all of my friends. I used the flyer that PawBoost made and shared it to my Facebook, in addition to the group it was posted in. I have lived in fear of my cat going missing every single time I see posters around my neighborhood. PawBoost made me realize I was not alone and that I had so much support. PawBoost gave me peace of mind, and a glimpse of hope that Phillip would be found safely. I can’t thank PawBoost and their hundreds of followers enough for supporting me in finding Phillip."

"My husband believes he left the front gate ajar. He was doing some landscaping which required him to go in and out with a wheelbarrow. We assumed Boonya had taken himself to bed as he normally does. We realized he wasn't in his bed or in the house around 11pm. So I went looking for him until just after midnight.
I looked on Google and saw PawBoost. I filled out the information and attached a photo of him after having cried my eyes out. My cellphone chimed just after 6 am; someone sent a photo of Boonya on a leash. It was posted on Cortney Rose Facebook page. The photo shows that they came upon him around 8 pm.
The results speaks for themselves; had I known he was found and in safe care; I could have had a somewhat decent sleep before picking him up 17 minutes from my home. You guys use all these great resources and it fills my heart to capacity knowing that there are decent, caring animal loving people out there. It really sincerely does. Thank you all so very much."

"We almost ran into this dog one Saturday evening, when he walked out in front of our car on a busy highway. I was going about 40 mph, saw him, and hit the brakes. As the other cars whooshed around us, my daughter Bella jumped out of her seat, opened her door, and pushed him up into the back seat of our SUV.
The car behind us did stop, thank goodness. We drove 16 miles to our home in the country, put the dog on a leash, checked him out for injuries and put him in our basement with blankets, food and water. He howled for a while, then settled down until Sunday morning.
We posted on Nextdoor and PawBoost. I got one response on Nextdoor, but it wasn’t his dog. Then people on PawBoost were emailing me about a lost post that looked like the dog in my found post. It was the same dog, Bronson! I emailed, texted and VM the owners. They called me asking about Bronson, said they had papers for him, shot records, and he was chipped.
Bronson was so happy to see his parents when they pulled up. He knew them immediately! He cried out and jumped in their truck's front seat, ready to go home! It was a true win-win for everyone, especially Bronson. I think PawBoost is awesome! PawBoost is the reason Bronson was reunited with his family, who so dearly loves him."

"I just moved to a new home in a new city and the very next day our basement flooded. After washing the floors and in an attempt to dry out the space, Mama escaped through a basement window we left cracked open. The window was very high off the ground and we didn't think there would be any way she could jump out of it, but the next morning her twin brother and I were left wandering around unable to find her. Though there were sightings of her throughout the neighborhood, I wasn't able to track her down, nor did she come out during the daytime hours.
Fortunately, moving into the neighborhood I moved into was a blessing because the neighbors were incredibly supportive and kept their eyes peeled! It was actually a neighbor just over a block away that was certain she'd seen Mama in an adjacent yard. She called and texted me whenever there was a sighting. After several days attempting to trap her (with a live trap) in both backyards, we were able to coerce her into the trap four weeks to the date that she escaped from the house!
It was definitely a community effort to bring her home, and I am appreciative of the referral to PawBoost by the Royal Oak Animal Shelter, as I contacted them immediately when Mama left. PawBoost has a wide reach and they are attentive about following up and checking in. I appreciate all of the support, posts and shares by PawBoost and their followers!"

"My dad built a new fence for Laddie and his brother not knowing he could get out. Laddie is a wanderer and him being so small he can fit under any fence in one split second. This is how he got out. He was on the next street (the route we usually take when going for a walk) when at least 6 neighbors ran after him trying to catch him. When I noticed Laddie missing I jumped in my car and that's when I asked the neighbors if they'd seen Laddie.
They told me they chased him causing him to run to the main street. He was found about 6 blocks away at a gas station the very same day, but we weren't reunited until 3 days later. With PawBoost's help I was able to connect with a mass amount of advocates running to my rescue. One by the name of Dot even drove 40 miles to me.
She had copies of Laddie's pictures already printed for me to pick up at a nearby printing shop at no cost. Amazing! She showed me how to place the proper signs in the proper, target areas. I got a call 3 days later and that's when the gentleman told me he was able to see my signs everywhere so he called me. I would definitely refer PawBoost to others. As a matter of fact, as I was taken signs down I already referred PawBoost to others in the process!"

"My dear Arya got out when she took advantage of the door left ajar when her dad took the garbage out. We realized she was missing when we couldn’t find her in her usual spot, approx. 30 minutes after she went missing. We checked all the possible spots in our house and we still couldn’t find her — that is when we concluded that she MIGHT have escaped when we left the door slightly open.
She is an indoor-only cat and is terrified of the outside world, so we never expected her to run off like that. We knocked on our neighbors’ doors asking for their permission to check their garage and sheds for us. I knew Arya wouldn’t show herself during the day as she was for sure terrified, so after countless ugly sobs my boyfriend and I emitted secretly, we decided to go home and wait until nighttime.
We used a flashlight hoping it would reflect her eyes, but we failed. There was no Arya around. The next day, we were sleep deprived. I finally decided to post on social media about her. PawBoost was one of my mediums to spread the word. I also printed flyers so we could put them on my neighbors’ front doors. After posting on PawBoost, I received tons of advice from these lovely people on how to get my baby back.
I put my clothes outside and called her name for 5 minutes, every 20-30 minutes. We decided to stay the night in the living room because we left our door ajar for her. At 2:00 AM, we heard her footsteps. As she passed by the living room, she gave us a quick look and with so much glam, cat-walked her chubby bum to my room. She didn’t look terrified or traumatized.
To be honest, she even looked like she enjoyed her time outside. She came back healthy for us, just a little bit wet from the rain. I would recommend PawBoost to a friend, because not only did they help spread the word on social media, but I also met wonderful, kind-hearted people through it. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!"

"She just showed up in our yard one Friday. We have a dachshund that looks almost exactly like her. When I saw her under my car I thought I was seeing double. We gave her some food and water and I began posting her picture on Nextdoor to see if anyone responded. We got a lot of concerned people wishing us luck but nobody knew where she belonged.
On Saturday we printed a flyer and put it on all the mailboxes on our street to see if she was local. Also on Saturday we took her to the vet to see if she had a chip. She did but the contact info was old. All we had was a name from 10 years ago in Lehigh Acres which is a city about 30 miles from us.
I called everyone I could find on the internet in Lehigh Acres with that name and left messages again with no response. It was not until I posted her info and picture on PawBoost that we got a response. Within an hour I got an email from a lady named Sue who knew the owners and she got us together.
I can’t thank you all enough. She is such a sweet girl and we are so happy she is where she belongs. Your website did what the others could no do. We are so happy Daisy is back home with her family."

"This dog was walking around the street right outside my home as I was bringing in my garbage cans from trash day. I just went right up to him and crouched down to call him. He came up to me, I picked him up and took him to get scanned at the local vet's office. After many attempts online through lost dog forums, I decided to go old school and just print up found dog posters around my neighborhood.
I figured he hadn't gone too far since he was so small and would've easily been run over on the busy streets nearby. I used the free poster you have available and I printed at least 20 of them and posted them around the neighborhood. PawBoost was the fastest and easiest way to get this fur baby's photo and information out into the world.
I loved the constant email updates of found dogs and the ease of the poster and site navigation. Its an all-encompassing website that makes resources available at no cost. I'm just grateful I was able to locate Hershey's family. He was thrilled to see his little girl again! Thank you for your services and compassion. Your site saves lives."

"Oreo went missing one Tuesday. We are convinced that he got out through an opening in our backyard fence after doing some light gardening work earlier that day. We created a poster utilizing PawBoost and placed them around our neighborhood. On Friday, I read an email at 9am from a nice guy who attached a picture of Oreo and message stating that he was with him and safe.
In the email, he mentioned that he saw the poster in the neighborhood and was able to establish contact. We set up a pick up time and I was reunited with Oreo. I appreciated the ease and judgement free space while dealing with the emotions of a beloved missing pet. Also the website was easy to navigate and the social media alerts were helpful as well.
I received various encouraging messages from people who were sharing my post and that was a beautiful thing to witness. I will continue to recommend this great resource to pet owners or anyone who will listen. Keep up the great work and thanks again for helping me reunite with my cookie guy!"

"Hemingway went missing one Sunday when he apparently slipped out a door as I let the dogs in or out. Hemingway was spotted on Monday when a neighbor caught sight of him on her Ring doorbell camera. We posted numerous signs and passed out flyers all over the neighborhood. Our neighbor called and said she thought she had captured a video of him.
After reviewing the footage, sure enough it was Hemingway. We set a humane trap at her house for the next two nights. He was seen once sniffing around where the food was. We brought the trap home Wednesday because it was supposed to rain. We decided to set it up the next day with our wildlife camera. Around dusk something told me to set it on the porch.
The next morning, my husband rushed into the bedroom saying, 'get up, a cat is in the trap.' He wasn't 100% sure it was Hemingway. We let him out and he got right into my lap. It was my precious polydactyl Hemingway. After 10 days he was finally home. PawBoost was tremendously helpful in that I had so many supportive, encouraging, helpful people to get me through this ordeal.
Many had been through it themselves and had useful advice. PawBoost is a tight knit community of animal loving people that I am so grateful for. Thanks to everyone who helped in this difficult time. I would recommend PawBoost to friends because of the supportive community and also being able to see animals and people reunited gave me hope."

"Diesel is just like his father, very impatient. We have a fenced in backyard and we let our 4 fur babies out the back door. Well 3 out 4 of them love to stay outside, play and never want to come in hardly. The 4th one, (take a guess who that would be, Mr. Impatient) if you don' let him in the house when he scratches the door, he finds a way to escape. He dug underneath the fence.
PawBoost helped us bring Diesel back home within an hour of losing him. As I was driving around looking for him, I received a phone call from a woman who had seen my post and seen Diesel on her street, which was across the highway from us! I immediately headed there, stopped in the middle of the road, called for my baby boy, and there he came happy as can be, galloping and running like the big old goof that he is.
I would highly recommend PawBoost to anyone who loses their child. I say child because to me, they are no different. These dogs are not dogs in our eyes, they are our children. If it weren't for PawBoost, our baby Diesel may not be with us anymore because of that highway he was crossing, and due to the fact that he is a pit. People are very afraid of pitbulls and because of that will do the unimaginable to them, and Diesel is the kindest, most gentle dog I have ever come across.
Again thank you PawBoost and thank you to all the people who shared, commented, prayed, searched, and found my precious boy. Diesel thanks y'all too!"

"I would have to say I thought my fur baby was gone for good. Stormy was a rescue and it was an instant connection with me and her. I fell in love with her so easily she is such a kind, loving best friend anyone could ask for. So when I noticed she was gone I just kept thinking the worst. It was already late so I couldn't do much at night. I was up all night thinking about her and hoping she would just walk up to the front door.
She sleeps in my room every night so to see her bed empty tore me apart. I woke up at 3am, printed flyers and started to go out and post her all through my neighborhood. I have such a great, awesome, loving, friendly community. They helped me by encouraging me to keep looking and stay positive. If it wasn't for everyone helping me look and giving me advice, I would have never known to post her on PawBoost.
Thirty minutes after I posted, I got a private message from someone saying they had Stormy and she was safe and sound. She found PawBoost and instantly saw her picture. She messaged me and I answered crying. I couldn't believe it, it was like a dream. She sent me a picture and IT WAS HER! My heart started beating so fast I couldn't wait to pick her up.
Thank you to my loving and caring community and PawBoost. If it wasn't for you the message wouldn't have been seen about my baby girl. I will definitely be using PawBoost and helping others find their pets. Thank you, thank you."

"My husband was driving home from work when he saw Paws. Paws was running in the middle of the street towards my husband's SUV, he nearly hit him! My husband jumped out and saw Paws under the car (unharmed). Paws looked hot, scared and very anxious. My husband reached for him (praying he would not get bitten). Paws ran around the car and jumped into the SUV. He brought Paws home.
We gave him food, treats and water. We took pictures of him and made found dog posters and placed them around the neighborhood. The next day we took him to the vet to get a chip reader, nothing. The girls at the vet took my found dog flyer to post in the clinic and told me to post to PawBoost, and other media. So, I did and then I just waited. The post was shared over and over by the community.
Meanwhile, Tony, the owner, went to the shelter looking for Paws. Sure enough there was a post of Paws. He contacted me via PawBoost. We live two minutes away from each other. We exchanged information and met up. Paws was full kisses and rapid tail wags when he saw his dad. PawBoost is amazing, I would definitely use and recommend it over and over."

"Binx has always been an indoor cat. He never went out. One day, while my husband was home alone, he went out and closed the door behind him. Apparently the door did not close properly and the wind blew it open. Since no one was home, no one realized the door was open and that's how Binx got out. When my husband realized it was too late.
We live on a ranch with 8 acres of land, lots of trees and bushes. There was no way he could find him. I posted on the animal shelter's website, PawBoost and Nextdoor. We also posted flyers in our neighborhood. 5 days later, a neighbor called and said he saw a cat similar to ours with a blue/aqua collar. My daughter immediately went to their house and started looking, but couldn't find him.
While she was talking to the neighbor she heard a meow sound coming from under the deck. There was Binx. First he was scared, but then he responded to my daughter and slowly came out. I will definitely recommend PawBoost, because you were so helpful, people were sending valuable suggestions, sharing our post, and supporting us in this difficult time."

"I didn't find this pet actually, this cat found me and ran into my house, made himself comfortable, and demanded attention. He also refused to leave my side or my house for 2 days and brought me a baby bunny he set loose in my house. I was able to locate the owner through a few different sources.
Our local neighborhood Facebook page knew the cat was from our neighborhood and helped me find the owner. The Humane Society recognized the cat from a time when he was reported missing and was able to give me the owner's contact information.
PawBoost was able to help because it reached many people who recognized the cat from the neighborhood who led me in the right direction. PawBoost reaches a different group of people than other resources and when combined with other resources highly increases the chances of success.
PawBoost also provides resources on how to approach the situation and is the only one I've found that does that and it is incredibly helpful. I was also regularly updated on the progress of my found report and that made things easy. The poster that is created is professional, draws attention, and can be used in many ways. That takes a big load off of the process."

"One Sunday morning, I started out for a walk in the neighborhood with my dog. I saw a little dog wandering and running into the street. I later learned the little dog’s name is Sushi. When Sushi saw me and my dog, he took off in the other direction. With busy streets nearby I was definitely worried so I followed him up one street, then down an alley. Finally, he went into a yard and I was able to pick him up. Once I picked him up, he was calm.
I first posted an announcement with a photo of Sushi on a neighborhood site. One of my neighbors who saw it recommended PawBoost so I posted a photo and description there. The next day Sushi’s owner also posted on PawBoost and we were able to connect. They were both very happy to see each other!
PawBoost is easy to use and was very informative about what steps I needed to take to ensure Sushi got back to his family. PawBoost kept me informed on how to protect Sushi as well as my dog and alerted me the importance of getting verification from the owner. PawBoost provided important guidance I needed."

"Bucky went missing about 12:30 one Monday after he got home from running errands with me and his sister Emmy Lou. I was taking groceries into the house and the dogs were out front doing their duties. When I called them back I thought Bucky was the first in the house, then Emmy and then I closed the garage door. Actually he was sniffing around and was left outside for 2 hours before I realized he was not with me in the house.
From that point on it has been a dreadful, frantic search. I notified the Humane Society, Animal Control, and PawBoost who notified Tobys rescue. My friends and volunteers were out searching and talking to people around my house and on the Fox River Trail. Around 10:30am the following morning I got a call from a walker on the trail that he had been seen running north up the trail.
I ran toward the trail from where I was, maybe 3 blocks away, and by the time I got near my house and the trail, Mary from Tobys Rescue was in the driveway with Bucky. She had seen him behind the AMS Insurance building next to my house and he ran from her, swam across their pond, and ran back to my house and into the garage where I had some ham laying out for him. Mary followed and the rest is history.
Vicki from the PawBoost Rescue Squad has been an angel also in the search as she contacted me the evening Bucky went missing and searched beyond darkness and then had signs up by 7am and was searching. I cannot thank all the volunteers and people who helped in locating Bucky enough. He is our little man, vulnerable and helpless and dependent on his family. He needed to be found.
He is in good condition, tired, cold, wet and hungry, maybe a little limpy on his front paw but no injuries on the outside. I am forever indebted to PawBoost and Toby Rescue Team for their support and assistance. I believe its because of them that Bucky is home, safe, and resting comfortably now. Thank you."

"My Eclectus parrot, Maya, has been obsessed with the outdoors lately. She would pace in front of the windows and continuously want to go out on the screened in patio. I took her on a couple of car rides but it seemed like she just wanted outside. We have a fully enclosed greenhouse, so I had the bright idea that I would take her out there. Of course while I wasn't looking, she found a hole in the screen where the water pipes come through, and as I looked up I saw her slipping through the hole.
I read if your bird escapes you should set it's cage outside, so I placed her cage and playstand in the backyard and would go outside and whistle for her once or twice an hour. The next day, I placed a listing on Craigslist and Nextdoor. Someone on Nextdoor suggested I create a listing on PawBoost. Things seemed to move really fast after that.
They sent my alert to Facebook and their local Rescue Squad. They also offered a free poster you could print out and post around the neighborhood. People began responding to the Facebook thread within minutes. It was a good feeling knowing there were others searching too. The next day, I received a phone call from a gentleman who found my parrot about half a mile away.
His wife said she had seen something on Facebook about a missing bird, found the post with my phone number, and I was reunited with my Maya. I am so grateful to PawBoost and all the people who kept an eye out for her. It gives me a really good feeling and a great sense of community seeing all these people come together to help find a missing pet.
Thank you so much to everybody at PawBoost for all your help. When I saw Maya fly off I didn't think I would ever see her again, but PawBoost enabled a happy reunion. I would highly recommend their services to anyone searching for a lost pet."

"We have allowed Jake to go outside in the morning for a few hours. At 7pm one Tuesday, he ran out when our sliding glass door was open for just a couple of seconds. He scaled a wall and got in a little greenbelt park behind our house. I was able get him back in our yard, but then he scaled our front wall. I followed him out front, and more wall scaling to the park. I followed him through the park and saw him scale another wall into someone’s yard. I stayed around and returned all night, but he was gone.
A family about 100 yards from where he was last seen heard his cries from their roof at 4:15am, about 4.5 days after he went missing. It was a dramatic rescue involving my daughter climbing on a roof, wrapping him in a blanket, handing him to me at the top of the ladder, and then putting him in cat carrier. We had previously blanketed the neighborhood where he was found with flyers and went door to door.
We visited the house where he was found a couple of times and must have been in the neighborhood at least a dozen times. PawBoost helped reinforce to us not to give up. It was hard not to succumb to despair and PawBoost helped remind us to remain hopeful, and we got very kind feedback in response to our post. We were also inspired by other people who were looking for Jake based on the post."

"Pickles went missing sometime in the afternoon one Thursday. A friend was helping me take care of him while I was away on a work trip in Baltimore. I was on my flight back home when my friend sends me a message saying Pickles was missing. I immediately created a post on PawBoost and within 30 minutes I had answers and confirmation Pickles was safe.
I was 2 hours from landing so I was not able to make calls while I was on my flight, but PawBoost and the most amazing community really went out of their way to make sure I got to reunite with my Pickles. I thank all of you. I definitely recommend PawBoost to everyone. When something like this happens you have to act fast because every minute helps.
Alyx was the one who saw him in the middle of the road, pulled over and picked him up. I don’t like thinking of how it could have ended but I’m very thankful for the PawBoost community and Alyx for helping my Pickles. PawBoost and their community are some of the nicest people. They really do go out of their way to help and it warms my heart."

"Firecracker is an indoor/outdoor cat. Many people say it’s not good to let a cat outside especially when he is declawed, but we are in a difficult position. Firecracker is a rescue cat and when we took him in, he was used to being outdoors. Now it is really hard for him to stay indoors only. He cries all night long every night and begs to go outside. So we decided to let him out every night around 10pm and he would always come home around 6am for the past 10 years. But one weekend he didn’t…
Members of PawBoost and of other websites shared Firecracker’s lost cat posting and we received a lot of useful tips. One of the tips was to put his litter box, food and pieces of our worn clothes outside on the porch so that he could possibly smell it and find his way home. Three nights later, Firecracker showed up in front of our door and we were ecstatic! We do believe that either the things on the porch helped or someone actually captured him and let him go after seeing our postings. We are incredibly happy to have him back home!
We recommend PawBoost because it offers a large community of people who care about animals. Those people provide tremendous support during these difficult times as well as very useful tips of how to get your cat back. Additionally, there are always some local members who read your postings, so there is always a chance that they see your cat and could either capture him or at least feed him. We are very thankful to the community!"
