Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"We were moving from Erie, PA to Concord, NC and traveling on I-79. When we stopped at a rest stop, Rocco jumped out of our vehicle and bolted across the highway to the Northbound rest stop.
We waited hours and hours crossing the guardrails and busy highway yelling for him and trying to call him back. He never came back. I joined numerous Facebook groups in search of finding him.
The morning after I created a PawBoost alert, I got a couple of calls and one finally lead me to McDonald, PA where he was at an animal shelter!
I would recommend PawBoost! I made a PawBoost alert one night and the very next morning PawBoost helped reunite me with our Rocco!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rocco's alert. A special thank you to the Washington County Humane Society for keeping him safe :)
"My partner's family was visiting from France for one week so we decided to take them camping and hiking. Everything was going well during our trip until the last night of our stay. We let Zorya stay in our room which opens up to the backyard while we went to the nearby town to have dinner. After coming home and usually being welcomed by Zorya we found that she was nowhere in the house or the property!
Unbeknown to us, there was a small area with just a small enough hole for her to fit through in the backyard. Starting around 9:00 PM until 1:00 AM, we looked frantically for her throughout the neighborhood. The next day was checkout day, so I looked early in the morning starting from 5:00 AM to see if she was nearby, but still couldn't find her. At this point, I was feeling extremely helpless and hopeless.
Seeing that my physical looking for her wasn't going to cut it I looked online for what could possibly be of help. I stumbled across PawBoost and after posting Zorya as lost, I started to gain hope in seeing her again, one share at a time. Afterward, I decided to call the animal shelter/control and was surprised to hear that they already knew Zorya was missing because of PawBoost.
After leaving later that day, PawBoost's community was heavily active in spreading Zorya's missing alert. After 48 hours of her missing, we were alerted that someone had found her! She was found near a Safeway nearly half a mile from our rental where I had gone with her twice during the trip. The next day, I drove up to Redding alongside my partner, and we were able to rescue her with the help of a kind gentleman.
If it wasn't for PawBoost, I honestly don't think we would have found Zorya in the 48 hours that we did. All in all, I can't thank PawBoost enough, and hopefully, this doesn't happen again, but if it does then I know exactly where to go!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Zorya's alert. She is home safe and sound :)
"Ariat went missing one Wednesday morning. She had been at my brother's for the night and got out of the fence. My whole family drove Greeley all day long and late into the night. Two ladies saw the alert and reported a sighting that got us searching in the right area. I was back on the roads as soon as the sun came up.
We spotted her the next morning and she was so scared by that point she ran from me and I lost her. My heart just completely sank. My mom talked with a police officer that was in the area and gave him her number. At 11:50 the officer called her that he had a sighting called in and I went to the area and was able to catch her.
Once she realized it was me she was so excited! She was very dirty, hungry and thirsty. But she is home, got a bath, a drink, a full tummy and is sleeping on the couch next to me. Without PawBoost I would probably have never found her, because she traveled clear across town, major roads and highways so the sightings helped get us in the right area. We are moving to Texas and I am so happy our family is whole again!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ariat's alert. A huge thank you to family that helped drive all over town looking for her and to the police officer that went above and beyond to personally call with a sighting that lead to bringing her home :)
"Sunny is a rescue from a puppy mill and despite years of training and love, she still is very timid and afraid. Sunny was spooked by something while out in our backyard. She ran from our yard and wasn’t seen again until 4 months later.
Finally, a local resident found Sunny under her deck. They could not get Sunny to come out but left food for her. At first they thought she was a neighbor's dog, but after some time they decided to look online and found Sunny’s PawBoost alert. Sunny was reunited with our family that day!
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost, both the website and Facebook post helped spread the word about Sunny. After four months with no sightings, we had given up hope. If it weren’t for PawBoost, Sunny’s missing posts probably would have been too old and overlooked. PawBoost was the key to bringing her home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sunny's alert. She is skinny, but healthy and her family is so grateful to have her home :)
"Buttercup went missing when she was outside as she is an indoor/outdoor cat. Usually she's outside for just a little bit and then comes back pretty quickly. We're still pretty new to the area and she is about 18 years old, so we figure she might've gotten confused or turned around that last time she was outside.
After just over three weeks we were starting to lose hope. We posted a picture and information to a neighborhood app and on the neighborhood Facebook page. We were going on nighttime walks regularly clinking her food bowls, without any success. We received lots of helpful advice and supportive words, but no one commenting had seen her.
Finally, I decided to try further reaching methods by using PawBoost to hope that Buttercup's picture and information would reach more people. Then after about four days I got a phone call from a woman, Michele, who lived a few miles away saying she thought she might have our cat.
She asked around and no one was claiming Buttercup. She feed Buttercup and was going to give it a little time of searching for the owners before taking her to the humane society. Then Michele remembered someone told her about PawBoost, which is where she found my information and called.
I described Buttercup in further detail and when Michele said it looked like it was the right cat, she offered to drive her over to our house. I was a little nervous because during our searches we had seen many lookalike cats that weren't Buttercup. However, once Michele came to the house and took the cat out, it was her! After almost a month Buttercup was home!
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend as it directly helped in reuniting us. Out city does not allow for flyers to be posted to street signs or telephone poles, so it was an efficient and easy way to spread the missing cat news."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Buttercup's alert. A huge thank you to Michele who found, looked after, and brought Buttercup home :)
"My Family and I were vacationing at Deep Creek Lake with our two dogs (Buster, a beagle, and Pippi, our miniature pincher/Boston terrier mix). We went to Deep Creek State Park to do some hiking with the dogs. We finished a four mile hike and were headed to the parking lot when my sons saw a hose.
The trails were very muddy that day and the dogs were filthy so the boys decided to hose the dogs off before getting in the car. The water must have been very cold because Pippi immediately backed right out of her collar and took off. She's VERY fast and even though my youngest son ran after her she was out of sight in seconds.
We heard from people at the park regarding sightings of Pippi in various places the first day she was lost. We immediately went to the location she was last seen but she was gone by the time we got there. After the first day, we were hearing NOTHING. We had to go back home to Annapolis without her.
About a week or so after we left, I received a call from a park ranger telling me Pippi had been sighted in one of the communities next to the park. We started hearing about multiple sightings after that, so two weeks later we headed back to Deep Creek Lake to see if we could find her. After our second day of looking she came out of the woods and went straight to my husband.
PawBoost was a big help in finding Pippi. PawBoost got the word out via Facebook and email and created a missing poster which we were able to print off and distribute in the area. People were also able to communicate anything they'd seen using PawBoost, which was instrumental in finding our dog.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone because there's no better way to get the word out quickly and to a lot of people in a short period of time."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Pippi's alert. She is in good health and good spirits! Her family is so thankful for the WONDERFUL people of Deep Creek Lake :)
"Peanut was let out to potty just as a storm was rolling in and the thunder scared him. He’s terrified of storms but he’s about 16 years old and he’s never run off. We needed to let him out to potty before it started raining and he was gone within 10 minutes.
Peanut was missing for 8 days with no food, water or shelter. He was lost outside of city limits in a more rural area by a highway and with coyotes seen frequently in the area. We thought he was a goner.
Eight days later, someone found him wandering by the side of the highway just a couple of miles away from home. He’s usually terrified of strangers but with him being so tired, hungry and thirsty, he was able to be convinced that these people weren’t that bad.
The finders contacted a local rescue who had just so happened to see Peanut's missing poster through PawBoost. The rescue made the connection that this found dog may be Peanut and contacted me. Sure enough, it was my little, old man that I thought was gone.
PawBoost was a wonderful resource that helped get Peanut's picture and my contact information out there. So many people were aware that he’d gone missing and because of this service he was able to be reunited with his family. It’s a miracle he’s alive and we are so grateful that this resource was here to help!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Peanut's alert. He’s skinny, tired and dehydrated but he’s home safe and being pampered :)
"Rascal went missing one Thursday evening. She loves to run around outside in our big back yard, which also involves her digging holes. To make the long story short, she dug a hole underneath our not so stable fence and ran away.
We searched every block of our neighborhood, even the next couple of neighborhoods all evening, but it wasn't a good outcome. The next day, we went to the pound to see if maybe someone called her in or took her in, but that was a no go either.
I was advised that the Facebook page 'Bring Rusty Home' attracts attention if you're looking for lost pets, but I do not have a Facebook so I took an alternate route, and that's where PawBoost came in. If it wasn't for your site, posting and your option to print out flyers, I would have never found my little Rascal.
We love her with everything so we were not going to give up. We really appreciate your website, you save fur babies lives! We are reunited, and it feels so goooood. My little family is complete again. I would recommend PawBoost in a heart beat."

"We got Zeus, our 6 month old Belgian Malinois, as a 27th birthday present for my boyfriend and we were so excited to add him to our family! We took him to my boyfriend's parent’s house until we could come and get him the next day once the fence at our house was finished being set up and secured.
My boyfriend’s parents took Justin’s (my boyfriend) little brother to his baseball game and when we returned, we got a call from his sister asking if we had already picked up Zeus. When we said no, they found a hole in their fence where Zeus had pushed and broke free. We started our search for him around 9:45 AM and our search ended around 3 PM the same day.
I have used PawBoost once before to locate my lost kitten after he escaped, and thanks to the flyers we made through your website, a man saw it and said he had our kitten. Since I had success with you previously and it was so easy to create a poster and print it, I decided to use your help again. I made posters and sent my info to all social media pages.
I got a call from a young boy who said he saw our missing sign and had Zeus safe and sound. He and his friends were heading home and Zeus was chasing them in the car! They took him home and played with him and even went as far as going out to look for us or see if he would navigate home.
We were reunited with him and we couldn’t be more grateful. I will always recommend you guys to everyone I know. You have helped me find two of my pets that have gone missing and both within hours of posting signs. I will forever be in debt to you all."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Zeus's alert. A special thank you to the young man and his friends for keeping him safe and happy :)
"Leo got out while I was gardening in the backyard. He has never left the front porch from fear so it was surprising to us when he went missing. For four nights, I walked the neighborhood in hopes to hear his raspy voice but it ended with me sitting on my porch until very late crying for him.
I was worried because he's so dependent on me to care for him. The mind's imagination is very unfair in these kinds of situations, but on the fourth night I sat waiting and I heard his cry from a distance. Then I called for him and he ran up to me and let me embrace him while he cried out his little raspy voice.
PawBoost helped me emotionally get through this experience. I felt like I was being heard and helped by strangers more than the friends on my Facebook. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would recommend this to everyone, because I had people reach out to give me advice and comfort and in these situations you need kindhearted people."

"I wasn't in Chicago when this happened, and my dad was nervous to tell me that Nicky ran away. But my dad called and told me a few hours later thinking he would be able to find him. He was gone for a few days but he was picked up just down the street from a lady who also has a Chihuahua.
So when I found out about all of this I went straight to Facebook and my friends that live in the neighborhood. My friend Liz told me about a lost dog neighborhood watch that we have. She instantly asked me for a picture and posted it for me. I went onto the group and posted a great picture of him and then it went off from there.
I had over 400 people share his picture and people commented to tell me they were going to keep an eye out. I was also given advice about how PawBoost could help me and that they have helped many other people reunite with their furry friends. Finally, the lady called my dad's house to say she had Nicky and she would drop him off right away.
When she got there and put Nicky down he slowly walked up to my dad, kind of hesitantly and then boom! Instantly the tail started wagging crazy and my dad's worries we're over. My dad offered the lady a generous reward for finding Nicky but she said that wasn't needed. That's what neighbors are for, to help each other and keep an eye out when their pets run away.
Thank you so much PawBoost for being part of this and helping us get Nicky back. Everyone had a part in this and we are so thankful that they did everything they could and took time out of their day to help a stranger find their dog."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Nicky's alert. It's amazing how many people came together and shared his picture in such a short amount of time :)
"I was walking with my two dogs at the Valley Crest Elementary school back field. My two dogs were off leash, then I saw one of my dogs with this stray dog. They both approached my other dog and I. The stray dog was afraid but was playing with my dogs. I didn't have a third leash to put it on him, so I called my family to bring me one, but no one picked up the phone.
I tried to get closer to the stray dog but he was very afraid anytime I tried and he would run away. So, I decided to walk the other direction and I knew my doggies would follow me, then the stray doggie came behind them. I sat on the grass several times so he could smell me and get to know me, thus gain his trust.
Although he didn't get closer to me I decided to walk to my house so he would follow us and he did. To do all of this took awhile and patience (I walked slower than usual), I didn't want him to run away or worse go towards passing cars. Everything went well then we got home and I opened my garage door only one third of he way and he went in.
I went to Petco to see if they had some news about a missing dog and I walked with the stray dog around the place I found him without any success. Then I checked online and found PawBoost and posted the alert. An hour later, I received a phone call from the owner. I wanted to make sure he was the real owner so I asked him to send me pictures with the dog, so he did. He came that very night to pick him up.
PawBoost was very helpful. I didn't think it was going to be that easy and quick. I definitely recommend PawBoost to everybody, because it works and is very effective. This is a great idea with a noble purpose which is to reunite owners with our loved pets."

"My dad has been doing construction on the roof and while our cats are usually amazing about staying indoors Rascal, whose name still rings true, decided to wander outside and peruse the roof. What’s 'fun' about our roof is that it is connected to the rest of the blocks and we live next to a dangerous jungle of scrap lots and loading areas with a couple groups of feral cats, really hot patches of tar in the sun, and an endless amount of ways to fall and get hurt/onto the city block.
I wandered around the entirety of our roof for about 3 hours at 3am. I made signs and put them around the block but none of us felt confident. We got a call from one of the signs saying they thought Rascal was spotted around 10 blocks away at 1am. We were shocked but the timing checked out so we printed 300 more posters, grabbed the stapler and raced over.
We spent hours and hours shaking treats, putting up signs, asking people EVERYTHING. We knew the woman who spotted a cat might have not been Rascal but we had to try. This woman also mentioned putting something online. So I went on, typed in missing cat and voila was PawBoost.
Minutes after I posted, I saw people giving support and that honestly is what got me to put one foot in front of the other. One morning, a neighbor on the other side of the block called my number and said she thought Rascal was on her roof. After a couple ladders, a ripped shirt from some old barbed wire, and a few seconds after climbing, we found RASCAL.
I would ONE THOUSAND percent recommend PawBoost. PawBoost is organized, clean, genuinely not suspicious, and most of all, simply a source of hope. PawBoost gave me the hope/determination I needed to put up posters well into the AM's and it is because of this beautiful freakin’ website that my baby is back with our family."

"I saw this beautiful dog running up to different cars in a grocery store parking lot. She ran out of sight and I followed her. I saw some people ask if she belonged to them. They said, no, so I called to her and she responded. It was 100 degrees and I couldn't leave her out there. She readily got in my car and I gave her water. She settled down quickly in the car.
I was able to get her scanned for a microchip by a neighbor who runs a rescue. I became very frustrated after entering her microchip number into several registries and for the results to come back as unregistered. That's when I turned to PawBoost. I made an alert for this beautiful, long-haired German Shepherd who turned out to be named April.
Not long after, I was contacted by April's parents! It turns out that they had just returned from a vacation and went to their son's home to pick up their dogs, and found that all three of their dogs had gotten out! They were able to locate two of them, and were frantic about April. A friend told them to look on AZ Lost Pets, they saw the alert and contacted me.
April was so happy to see her family! It turns out that her chip was registered with an AKC registry, but I had given up because I was so frustrated that registries I called did not have agents to answer the phone. Even if I had picked the correct registry, PawBoost reunited April with her family faster than waiting for an agent to return my message.
I would recommend PawBoost to anyone who has lost or found an animal. It was so much easier that trying to track her by her chip number (she wasn't wearing her collar because she had been swimming before she got out). I like your recommendation not to judge the owners of a lost pet."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared April's alert. April was only missing for a few hours before she was happily reunited with her family :)
"Rico went missing when he squeezed out of my mom's backyard. He wandered across the road to the city hall and was then rescued by a woman who lived down the street. She took him home and posted on the Nextdoor app that she had found him.
At that time, we realized he was gone and I started on foot going door to door asking if anyone had seen him. A neighbor told me about the Nextdoor app so I checked and the first post I saw was of my baby. I immediately gave her my number but she didn't call right away.
I began to worry again until she called and said that she had let him out to potty for a few minutes and when she came back he was gone. He had gotten out from her front gate! She drove around looking for him and had no luck. I kept looking and it started to get dark so I anxiously waited for Monday to roll in.
I called in from work and posted everywhere on social media. A page admin saw my post and decided to make us 100 color fliers!! We then put them all over the area, emailed/called clinics and shelters, and spread the word to my coworkers as well. Then it was the waiting game. The days went by and my boyfriend was still putting fliers out every day.
I was at work when he called me after putting up even more fliers, and he told me that he found Rico!!! An elderly woman named Kitty saw him by a very busy street. She scooped him up and took him home on Sunday. She said he was very sweet and the most well behaved dog she had ever come across!
She told me that a coworker saw the flier my boyfriend put up and brought it to her. She then called David and he called me at work. I cried so much, but I certainly am glad to have my little baby back! I appreciate all the help PawBoost has done for me :) I would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone who has lost a pet because it was highly recommended to me by many people."

"Jerry has been a part of our family for 6 years. The first song we taught him to sing was 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.' He is a very happy bird with an amazing sense of humor, likes to laugh when the kids get into trouble. He goes on most car travel holidays with us.
Jerry's cage was blown over in the strong winds we’ve had recently. This has never happened before. I could hear him fly away so we frantically searched the area, neighbor's yards, etc. We live on bushland so it was going to be tough to locate him. The children and I were distraught as was many people that know of Jerry.
Instantly, I went on Facebook and posted a 'please help' with an image via my feed as with other online directories like yourself. I then had friends share and put the post on lost and found feeds which was wonderful. I was so amazed how many shares that took place and people reassuring and giving advice on what to do. Thank you!
It was one lovely family that found Jerry (and this is so him), at the football in Lambton and contacted my daughter through a registry she had put Jerry on. This was 5 days later. That’s a good flight from Charlestown. He was hungry, but ok. He happily ate the pastry of a sausage roll and sat in the family's car watching the footy; they then brought him home to us within the hour.
It’s given us absolute reassurance that do kind to others and the universe will return. He ate and slept a lot the first day or so coming home, but he is back to his cheeky self. AMAZING!!! Thank you for wonderful services like yourself."
Spread the good news! Thank you to every one who shared Jerry's alert. What a joy this has brought to their home and faith that there’s a loving, caring community out there :)
"Every morning before work I let the dogs out to go potty and most often the cats run out with them (I have 3). After herding everyone back in, (or so I thought), I left for work. Rico is a bit of a scaredy cat and follows his big brother around everywhere.
Even the sound of a car driving by will send him running like crazy back into the house. I for sure thought I saw all 3 in the house when I left, but when I came home from work, Rico was nowhere to be found.
I first posted that we lost him on a neighborhood app. My daughter and I posted fliers up all over the neighborhood and I posted about it on Facebook although most of my friends don't live by us. Someone recommended PawBoost to me which I hadn't heard of.
Every few days, then every week or so PawBoost would ask me if Rico had been found. 2 months later, someone in an entirely different neighborhood posted she found a cat, and a sharp eyed Rescue Squad member of PawBoost thought the picture looked like Rico.
PawBoost is THE reason we were reunited with our little man. I cannot thank you enough!! I would highly recommend PawBoost to anyone who's lost a pet. Again, thank you!!"

"This adorable girl wandered into my wife’s warehouse one Monday evening around 5pm. She was thirsty and apparently lost and scared. We gave her food and a bed to sleep in overnight.
The next morning, we fed her breakfast and played with her. She is a very happy and active dog. We then took her to the closest animal hospital. We were afraid of taking her to the shelter not knowing what they would do to her.
The pet hospital scanned her and found that she had a chip. It showed the adoption agency in Palmdale. We called and spoke to the director and she drove all the way from Palmdale to LA to pick up the pet.
Then she contacted the owner and they were ecstatic as they thought they had lost her forever. They recently moved into the neighborhood and the dog got out during unpacking. What a relief for these happy parents.
I definitely would recommend PawBoost as we should use the power of social media to connect to others. We did and we got really good advice from friends whom are dog rescuers. Thank you for your help reuniting a lost pet with its owner."

"I'm a traveling nurse and we had just moved into our new, temporary home one Thursday afternoon. It had been a long day of driving and unpacking. I believe he snuck out when I took the dog potty before bed. When I woke up the next morning and he wasn't in bed with me or meowing at his breakfast dish I knew something wasn't right.
After a thorough search of the house we took to the neighborhood. A friend found your site to post on. I utilized the many tips that were left in the comments (food/water out on the porch with familiar scented materials and liter box). Around 3AM I woke up and decided to do a check. There he was sipping water on the porch.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost. I was overwhelmed with the care and support complete strangers showed me. I am so grateful for their kind words, helpful tips and most importantly to have my baby return home! Hopefully our story will give others hope."

"We have been displaced from our home due to Hurricane Michael causing catastrophic damage here in Panama City, FL. We are staying in a home that also sustained damage, but unlike our home, it is livable. We have not been able to get anyone to repair the chainlink fence at the home we are staying in as all of the people I've contacted are more interested in the larger jobs. We have been using a tie out system.
Apparently, the back door to this home has an issue with the lock mechanism and must have come open after my daughter left the house. We and our dogs are still getting used to being in a new neighborhood and adjusting to the new environment. We are very fortunate to find a place to stay that will allow us to have our puppies.
Sky enjoys rolling around on her back in the grass and has broken through several ID tags. Her collar really takes a beating and we have a hard time keeping an ID tag on her. Sky is a wonderful older dog who is deaf and has health issues. She is smart and has learned sign language since we adopted her 6 years ago. She is a character and such a delight. She is gentle, loving and has learned to explore this world and communicate with us with cueing and body language as well as her woof.
We were so worried about her. Due to her mass on her heart, she doesn't have much endurance and her vision is poor. The people sharing her information were so helpful in getting her back home. People acted quickly and her story was shared 82 times getting her info out there. The nicest couple found her. I got a text from someone helping coordinate her return and sending me photos of her.
We were so lucky that there are great people utilizing this app. This is such a valuable tool! I did not know what PawBoost was, but I am so thankful now. I would definitely recommend PawBoost. Thank you!"

"Toby got out through an open pool gate and a new RV gate that wasn’t latching properly. I stopped a neighbor who was walking in the morning to inform her of Toby missing, she said she was out looking and would go to the last spot he was seen. She called me one hour later to say a hiker saw a dog who matched Toby's description on top of one of the highest mountains in the area.
My daughter and I hiked the treacherous mountain (no notable trail) near East Wing Mountain preserve. As I called out his name and I was about 10 feet from the top he started barking. We scaled the large boulders and indeed it was Toby. Bring that he was missing for 4 days he was weak, limping and dehydrated and we were unable to get him down the mountain.
We decided to call 911 after several conversations with dispatch and the fire captain dispatched a technical rescue team. Toby was brought down in a big wheel rescue basket. He was taken to the vet and is doing well. I would recommend PawBoost because it’s nice to know other people are helping in your search."

"Spencer was on a walk in the desert with his dad and our two other dogs when a man pulled up close to him in a truck. My husband thought the man had picked him up, but he may just have gotten scared and ran off. My husband looked all over the desert and the adjoining neighborhoods, but had no luck finding him.
While he was looking I started calling shelters and posted an alert on PawBoost. Several hours later, I got a call from a man who said he thought his sister found Spencer. I sent him a picture and he told me where to meet her. It was in the area we had been looking for him. We drove up, and there he was with the kind woman who had found him.
We cried, hugged her and thanked her for finding him and returning him to us safe and sound. I know PawBoost was the reason he was found and returned home so quickly! I recommend your service to anyone who has lost a pet. It put Spencer’s information out so quickly, and to so many people. I really feel we owe his safe return to PawBoost and the kindness of Olivia and her brother. Thank you so much for your service, it is wonderful!"

"This magnificent dog wandered into my yard to greet me when I was working on my pool. He was very easy to manage and loved being with me, although he didn't know me! I could not find any tags on his collar to identify him. So, I set about making signs to post in stores. I then began to call local veterinarians.
I was soon told of PawBoost and their services for lost and found animals. I then took his picture and posted it on PawBoost. The pup was interested in watching my activities around the pool so I kept him safely with me until I finished the cleaning task. I then opened the slider, went inside, and called for him to come into my house. He hesitated but soon came in to get a treat. He slept overnight with us all.
The next day, I received a call from a lady who said she was certain of the owner, in fact, it was her neighbor. She gave me the owner's number and I called her. Linda immediately came to my house to fetch him in her truck and the reunion was beautiful to watch - lots of love and kisses. Without PawBoost, I believe this would never have happened so quickly.
I would be very quick to recommend PawBoost to a friend, since my success using this site for the first time was simply astounding. The vast expanse of communications to so many people in a timely manner can be credited with the success of this reunion. I remain very impressed with the quality of work you all do. It remains a Godsend for all lost and found animals! Thank you dearly for saving the day!"

"Bonnie and Clyde are livestock guardian dogs. They guard sheep and goats in a pasture a few miles from our farm. They are devoted to their sheep and goats and never leave them. However, we believe a big thunderstorm during the night scared them. When we went to feed and check on them in the morning, we noticed a big hole that was dug under the fence.
They escaped via the hole and ran several miles from their home pasture. We just bought collars with their names and our phone number on them but had not yet put them on the dogs. So we reached out to PawBoost to notify our community that they were on the run. We received over 25 calls and messages with information on Bonnie and Clyde sightings.
With the help of these sightings, we were able to track and locate them. It is heartwarming that people take the time out of their busy lives to respond to the PawBoost alerts and even more amazing, the number of people who emailed or called to tell us that they were very happy that we were reunited with Bonnie and Clyde. Timing is critical when livestock guardian dogs are on the run – they can run for several miles and have difficulty navigating their journey home.
PawBoost’s alert canvased the area quickly and widely. We are so grateful for PawBoost and our community for helping Bonnie and Clyde get home safely. We hope we will never have to use PawBoost again, but highly recommend the service."

"Molly escaped from my grandparents home one Friday. After four days of traveling, Molly was spotted roughly 3 miles from where she escaped. Multiple good Mon Valley residents called to report seeing her. A friend called to say that he had seen her running through a field and just knew it had to be her. Another friend of a friend even took the time to follow her in his car and then on his personal golf cart at his home.
At this point about 15 people in the area were looking for our Molly. Driving down Ridge Road in Belle Vernon I noticed a lane I’d not seen before. Thank goodness I happen to take this road down to a farm. After looking for a few minutes and leaving some flyers at the home, I gave one last call for Molly and out of the corner of my eye a small white flash appeared under the fence.
I couldn’t imagine her being in a field full of horses, but there she was. Molly was a little confused at first, but soon knew who I was. I sat down in the field and she trotted on over. Covered in mud and looking to be completely unharmed, I scooped her up and ran back to my Jeep. It was truly the best feeling in the world.
I can’t even begin to imagine what she’s endured on her four day adventure, but I’m just sure glad she’s home. Thanks to PawBoost for the great post and getting so many shares. It’s truly great to see so many caring people in our community. I couldn’t be more grateful for all of you."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Molly's alert. No matter if it was sharing a post, helping to look, or just sending words of kindness this family truly appreciates everyone's help :)
"We are from Tennessee but have been babysitting our two grandchildren while our daughter and son-in-law are out of the country. Vladimir slipped out the back door that was opened by one of our gran-dogs. He had been out the door for less than five minutes when I realized he was gone.
Our daughter’s house backs up against a mountain that is a large, natural city park. We began searching immediately but were unable to find him. It was as if he had vanished. Vlad became a member of our family about 5 years ago when he showed up inside our house in pretty bad shape.
He managed to survive one of the snowiest winters we had experienced in several years. He was not chipped and the vet said she thought he was at least 10 years old. He survived once before and we were praying his survival skills would keep him alive again. I immediately posted on PawBoost and several other local and state pet rescue sites.
I followed PawBoost recommendations and put up signs. I hiked the mountain and asked everyone I saw if they had seen him. After two and a half days of missing I received a call from a nice man that said he saw Vladimir walking up the mountain as he was coming down the trail. He was able to shoo him back down the trail towards the trail parking lot.
He called me from the parking lot to say he was in the grassy field between the parking lot and the houses. I ran out the back door and was able to see him and call to him. He was excited to see me. He was wet, cold, hungry and tired but otherwise in good health. He is limping a little and has a few minor scratches across his belly but amazingly survived rain, thunderstorms and predators on the mountain.
He is one tough old guy. I want to thank PawBoost for getting the word out and providing suggestions to help bring him home. It was encouraging to know everyone was spreading the word and praying for his safe return - another PawBoost miracle."

"Dixie went missing after she snuck outside and no one noticed while taking the trash out. She is usually a good girl and comes right back in but I guess she figured she needed an adventure. As soon as we realized she was gone, we panicked. She is chipped but doesn’t wear a collar.
We reached out to social media and friends suggested all of these sites, including PawBoost. I quickly made an account and got her up. PawBoost also created a flyer so we took that to get copies made and canvassed the neighborhood, putting flyers on mail boxes and knocking on doors.
At about 8:45 PM the day after she went missing, our neighbor from a street over knocked on our door and said that her neighbor had seen a flyer with a missing dog and sure enough, Dixie was with her. We were so happy to get her home and Dixie was happy to see us, although I think she was sad to leave because she had made a new friend over there!
We got her home and my two sons fell over with excitement and relief. Dixie promptly got onto her spot on the couch and passed out, snoring. I would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone who’s lost a pet, because the resources available from PawBoost are well worth it."

"Ace went missing one Monday evening while we were barbecuing. He got outside and we didn't notice until the next day when our nanny noticed he hadn't been around. At which point we realized we hadn't seen him since the night before. Ace has gotten locked outside multiple times but not once in 5 years has he ever left our front yard. We feared he'd been scared off by a coyote or something!
Six days later, as a last ditch effort I set out some cat food on our porch. We left for dinner around 7:30 and I just randomly decided to check our security cameras and low and behold he happened to be eating just then! We raced home and he was still on our porch. He's been following me everywhere ever since.
PawBoost was helpful for visibility as multiple Facebook members shared the post and provided advice and resources. I would definitely recommend PawBoost. We are lucky to live in a time where technology makes finding a lost pet easier and the more people that know about it and can report sightings the sooner our furry family members can return home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ace's alert. He took a while to calm down but now he's as loving and sweet as always :)
"Lita went missing one Friday around 10:30pm. I was having a dinner party and as I was making dessert a couple of people had to head home. One of the guests didn’t even realize she slipped out the door but it wasn’t even a full 10 minutes before I realized she was gone.
I went outside and searched the entire apartment complex, went back inside my home and searched and back out again. We called out her name and searched the surrounding areas but she was nowhere to be found. At this point I was emotionally exhausted and completely drained.
Lita and I were reunited 2 days later. The day before I made 200 flyers that a couple of people helped me pass out and post around the area. I also reached out to lost pet hotlines, the surrounding shelters, made a post on all social media outlets and posted on different lost pet websites including PawBoost. Through PawBoost my story was posted and shared over 50 times and through one of the shared posts, Lita was reached.
I was contacted by a lady who said she saw the post on Facebook and knew right away it was my dog. She told me she and her children were downtown the day before and saw my dog with another person. Her children went up to my dog to pet her and that person told her they couldn’t take care of her and asked her if they wanted to keep her.
She took Lita home and came across my post that same night, knew it was her, said her name and she immediately turned her head to look at her and perked up. When Lita got in my arms, her and I both were so excited and a relief I never felt before washed over me. My baby and I were reunited and I couldn’t be happier!
I definitely would recommend PawBoost to friends, family, strangers, anyone who owns a fur baby because of the support from this community. Lita and I were reunited and I’m so thankful to everyone who helped and made this possible. PawBoost is a great platform/tool to reach people."

"Luna is scared of thunder. One Wednesday, we had a sort of flash thunderstorm in the middle of the day and we have construction going on in the back of the house. Instead of going under the bed or hiding out in my bathroom per usual, she went out the doggie door and bolted out the back. She ran to the front porch (according to our mailman), but no one was home to let her in, so she ran down the street.
When I got home at 5:30pm and found out she wasn’t in the house or on the property, I didn’t know what to do. I called animal control and they were closed for the day. I was sick to my stomach. I went online and typed, 'what to do when your dog runs away.' PawBoost came up in the results so I posted Luna’s picture and followed the easy directions and hit submit.
Within 1 hour of signing up to PawBoost, a person found that Luna had been brought in to the animal shelter and sent the animal shelter picture of her, which I like to think of as her mugshot. I could finally breathe relief. I was having horrible thoughts of what could have happened to her.
PawBoost is amazing!! I would 100% recommend PawBoost to a friend. I have never seen anything produce results so quickly and bring together a community of people. Fantastic resource and connection. Thank you PawBoost!!!"

"Sasha went missing one Thursday. We believe she snuck outside when my husband was doing yard work. She hasn't been outside since she was a stray and that's when I rescued her from the shelter. Between our neighbor's dogs and the lawn mower we feel she got spooked once she was outside and just took off.
The second I was notified she was missing I went to the lost and found groups on Facebook and someone suggested PawBoost to help find her. I posted to your site and you all posted her missing and it was shared in groups I did not know about and I was hopeful. After a week went by and no signs of her we were starting to get worried and thinking the worst.
PawBoost emailed me throughout her missing days and asked if she was found and when I marked her still missing she was made a top priority and I am so grateful for that. After almost two weeks of missing, I was on the computer about to print out her missing signs from PawBoost when my daughter came in the house saying, 'Mommy I hear meowing.'
I ran outside and followed the cries and we found her crying/scratching at a neighbor's door and my daughter ran over to get her. She is very skinny and hungry but she has not left my side since she has been home. I'm so grateful she is home safe and sound.
Your site was a huge help and I definitely will recommend it to anyone I know missing a pet. We are so happy and over joyed she is home safe. I am grateful that your site exists to help reunite pets with their families. This is a picture of our baby after she was found, sound asleep on my arm."

"Emma went missing outside of the Los Angeles courthouse one Wednesday around 2:30 pm. My friend was with her outside the building while I was inside. She was on her leash, but bolted when she saw a squirrel and the leash slipped through his hands. He went chasing after her, but next thing he knew she was gone, out of sight. We looked and looked all through the area with no luck.
I posted all over Facebook, searched all shelters, posted on PawBoost and PetHarbor, reported her missing to her chip company, put up flyers, and I searched the streets and homeless camps every night. I believe the PawBoost share to Facebook is what helped me find Emma and I’m so grateful for that.
A very kind, transient woman found Emma on the metro. Emma knew how to make it to the SUBWAY!! She may have been on the red line to North Hollywood, but she knew we take the train and how to get on there. We literally take the train together every day. Very smart Miss Emma.
I’m super grateful to have my baby back. Grateful for PawBoost and everyone involved in reuniting us. Thank you PawBoost and much love."

"Rusty went missing in August 2018. I had gotten a dog sitter and left town that July to Arizona to help out with taking care of my Grandparents. When Rusty went missing, the person who was watching my dog did not inform me of his absence. In retrospect, I think they were afraid to tell me as they knew how upset I would be.
I was gone for several months so I did not know that Rusty was missing until November when I returned home. As soon as I found out what was going on, I put all my effort into finding my dog. I checked at shelters in 4 different counties and put lost posters all over the place.
The shelters I contacted didn't have any information on my dog or his whereabouts and it seemed that anything I tried was a dead end. I started posting Rusty missing on all lost animal sites and I created a Facebook post and tried to get it shared as many times as possible. I even went door to door and talked to as many people as I could.
I ended up moving to Arizona and not being able to take Rusty with me broke my heart. After living in Arizona for two months I found Rusty online at a shelter over 100 miles from where he disappeared. I did not know that dogs can be transferred anywhere in the state for adoption once they have been in the shelter for as little as 4 days.
Rusty had been adopted and I had to talk to the shelter and they were kind enough to talk to the new owners. They were willing to give him back to me once they knew his story and that I had been actively looking for him since the time I knew of his disappearance. I drove from Tucson, AZ to Los Alamos, NM to pick him up and was thrilled to see his reaction to being reunited with me.
My advice to people is to microchip your pets and also to look in shelters around the whole state. Rusty was missing for 9 months and I didn't give up and I have him back now. I am overjoyed at having my baby back!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rusty's alert. Microchipping is so important!
"My son was walking his 4 year old, mini dachshund Curly and he sat down on a bench. Suddenly, Curly bolted after something he saw and his leash came loose from my son’s hands. They had been walking behind the grounds of Lankenau Hospital.
Curly has bad separation anxiety so he does not run away. However, that day he ran off with the leash on and my son felt for sure he was caught up on something like brush or ran into the highway. So while he was searching all the grounds calling him for the next hour, I was making calls to the hospital security, police and registering him with you as lost.
A woman walking her dog found Curly alone with the leash attached. She gave Curly to a woman who lives behind the hospital who posted Curly on Facebook as found as I was logging him missing with you. Within minutes, a woman saw your alert of Curly and called me about him being found the same time my son was running around looking for him.
Your service is great and I would definitely use it again. Lifesaving. Thank you."

"Ollie lives to spend time with people. So much that when I rented a garage to restore vintage bikes, Ollie just had to come along for the ride. Normally lightly tethering Ollie close by while we are at our home is more than enough to keep him safe. However, in a new place with new smells and people passing by, Ollie pulled away from the leash and with excitement headed north down an alley.
Minutes later, not seeing him I went south expecting him to respond to my call. Hours later, our frantic family was still looking for him, posted lost dog signs on dozens of telephone poles, reported him missing to the police, animal control, animal hospitals, and posted on local social media boards.
With news of multiple sightings of him our family's hopes soared, only to be dashed again and again upon not finding him anywhere. Finally, just as darkness was beginning to fall, we spoke to a family friend who recommended we post Ollie missing on PawBoost. At 10 pm, we gathered as a family, prayed, and tried to keep from letting our minds imagine the 'what if' scenarios.
A sleepless night brought us no news until 6:30 the next morning when we received a call. Ollie was picked up the previous night; the result of a free Craigslist ad posted by a resident. Ollie, was temporarily named Charlie and taken home to New Kensington. His new owner, who has years of experience raising Cav's, suspected that she was in possession of a loved and well-cared dog that had probably gone missing.
This kind woman did a search on PawBoost and found Ollie immediately. Upon waking up, she contacted us and within the hour we were reunited. We are thankful for the prayers of friends and family, the kindness of concerned neighbors, for our new friend for finding Ollie, and our families message on PawBoost."

"In November 2018, I went out of town for two weeks on business. I had a friend of mine staying in my home, pet-sitting and house-sitting for me. A few days in, my friend accidentally left the back door open while taking out the garbage. Opal got out and my friend wasn’t able to find her. Unfortunately, she also didn’t tell me that Opal was missing until I got home. If I had known, I would’ve come home immediately to look for her.
As soon as I got home and couldn’t find Opal, I started posting lost pet ads on Craigslist, Facebook, and everywhere I could think. Someone recommended PawBoost, so I immediately created an alert for Opal. They shared her on Facebook and made sure to send me updates as soon as anyone commented on the post or sent a message through their website.
PawBoost also generated a flyer for me, which I was able to print and hang up around my neighborhood. It took a while, but Opal and I were finally reunited 6 months later, thanks to those flyers! PawBoost is awesome, and I’d definitely recommend posting any lost or found animals on their website."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Opal's alert. She was covered in fleas when she came home so she got a nice, warm bath that night. This was her scrunchy face afterward :)
