Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"Mischa escaped the house at 5am, as my husband let our dogs outside. She has gone out before supervised, but stays around the yard. She did not return, so we knew something was very wrong. I began searching for her immediately. We live on a very wooded property, so I combed the woods and thick brush, and also went door to door up and down neighboring streets.
I put up signs and posted on PawBoost and local Facebook pages for lost pets. She is 13 years old, with arthritis and early kidney disease, so I was beside myself with worry for her health and safety. The next afternoon, I received a message from a woman who believed Mischa was in her yard....just over a mile away! I jumped in my car and drove over there. She had tried to catch her, but she darted away each time.
After a brief search, my sweet girl was found hiding under some bushes. She came to me immediately and I cried. The wonderful caring woman who found her had seen my alert on PawBoost! Without it, she likely never would have been found. Thank you for what you do for beloved pets and their owners! I will share all the posts I see, in hopes that everyone who is worried sick and broken hearted will find their pet like I did. PawBoost increases the chance of spreading the word, so all pets can be reunited."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Mischa's alert! Thank you to the wonderful caring woman who found Mischa and took care of her. She searched for her owner, who is so happy to have her girl back, none the worse for wear.
"I saw the dog hiding under and behind a small camper while I was walking my dogs. I called a friend to come help, as I could not do anything because of my two dogs. I was afraid he was going to run across a very busy street and get hit when he saw me. We got him to a safe place and then put an alert on PawBoost.
A friend of the family saw the dog on PawBoost and called his family, and his family called him. We found the dog around 8:30 AM. He called around 4:30 PM when he got off work. The dog had pulled out of his collar that morning while walking. He was searching for him until he went to work. PawBoost was a great way to get the information out for people to see."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And thanks to these Good Samaritans who came to his rescue and kept him safe. Thanks to their quick actions, he is now home safe!
"Diesel ran out the door when our child was coming inside. A kind lady saw Diesel on the road and picked him up and took him home. He was an hour away! A friend of mine reached out and told me about PawBoost, so I made a post. The lady that found Diesel googled, 'Missing cat in Arden' - which is where she found Diesel. And my PawBoost alert popped right up for her! PawBoost reunited me and my fur baby!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Diesel's alert. And a big thank you to the kind lady who found Diesel and took care of him. Thank goodness she went online to see if there was a found cat reported. Because that's all it took for her to find his PawBoost alert and reach out to his owner. Diesel was gone for three days but is now home safe and sound.
"I had a friend watch Bella because it was too hot outside for her to travel along. My friend went to the ice cream truck, leaving the garage open, and Bella bolted out. I drove around the neighborhood and posted on PawBoost and other sites. A Good Samaritan posted a picture of her resting in the shade on a residential street, not far from where she ran off. I spoke with ten different people. Some had seen her, some hadn’t, but I kept searching.
The next morning, something told me to cross over the main street, keep calling her name, and keep asking people if they've seen her. I ran across a guy working on his car. I pulled up and asked if he had seen a grey and white dog. He replied, 'A pit? She was here with me but she walked off a hour ago.' I knew I was getting closer.
I went two streets over and she was laying on the sidewalk. It was such a relief! I couldn’t help but to think the worst, especially knowing my dog doesn’t have street smarts. But she most definitely proved me wrong! Good girl Bella! And thank you to PawBoost! It's a great way to spread information about your lost pet to a worldwide network!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Bella's alert and prayed and stressed! Thanks to the Good Samaritan who posted her picture and let her owner know she was nearby. He drove around all night and finally found her. Despite not having "street smarts," Bella made it home safe!
"They are beagles, and we live in the country. We have an electric in-ground fence, but they must have seen a deer or rabbit and chased it. We have four dogs, but only Molly and Max took off.
We had tags on the collars with our phone numbers, and the people who found them called. But I will say that PawBoost definitely helped. I saw between six and eight people going through the fields and woods, and countless other cars driving in the area slowly. We do not have a lot of traffic out here, and it was pretty clear that they were looking.
Molly and Max were found roughly 30 hours after they escaped, and they were about six miles away. It is clear that people are more than willing to help if notified. After this, I will be sure to help - and will look for others' pets when notified."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Molly and Max's alert. Thanks to the couple who found them and called. And also to all the people out there who were looking for Max and Molly in the woods. They were found six miles away! But they're now home safe and sound.
"I found him walking alone on a side street in the early morning darkness, while my husband and I were driving home from the gym in my neighborhood. I thought at first he was a slow possum, but then we got closer up and saw he was a tiny Chihuahua. I got out of the car and he hesitantly walked up to me, but after a moment he came to me and let me pick him up. I took him home and he met my 2 dogs, Ben and Jerry - my papillon twins. It was instant love for all 3.
PawBoost was fantastic in helping this little cutie in finding his owner. As soon as I found this little guy, I put posters up in my neighborhood, thinking that he lived nearby. My husband got on the internet and looked for lost and found pets and how to go about posting it. I went everywhere around my area talking to people and showing pictures of him, and no one recognized him at all. We then changed our thinking to reach out to other areas and we met many caring people who wanted to help us.
Meanwhile, I went on Facebook, which led me to PawBoost. As soon as I posted the alert, I got many many responses from people wanting to share his picture. It was amazing how his picture spread throughout the internet. I then received several responses from someone who I was thinking might be the owner. One thing she said to me was that she could prove it may be her dog by revealing something of the dog that only she and I would know. Yes, it was her dog! We brought her dog to her and the reunion was amazing. We were greeted by her and many of her family and friends. Little Bubba came home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert and came to his rescue. Thanks especially to this kind couple who found him and cared for him - then took all the necessary steps to help him find his owners. It was such an amazing and joyful reunion when Bubba came home.
"Belle was a jet black kitten of 10 months. On the morning she was due to be spayed and chipped by the vet, she escaped through the cat flap which had been accidentally left open for our other cat Maisie and disappeared. We were reunited through social media by a young woman called Pippa who had seen the poster up in a local shopping centre, which was still there months after we put it up!
Belle was missing three and a half months. We searched everywhere, at all times of day and night. She was found in the only place I had not looked, which was the other side of a very busy road which I could not imagine she has crossed - but she had.
PawBoost helped us in many ways. It even helped at the vet's when two other people claimed Belle as their own cat, because we could prove how long we had been looking for her. Thanks for everything!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Belle's alert. Thanks to the amazing Pippa, who saw Belle's poster and notified her parents. And thanks to everyone at Penny Lane #Vets4Pets, especially Emma, for all the help. Belle was gone for 3 months and is now home safe and sound.
"Penelope is an indoor/outdoor cat. My daughter was in a temporary living situation that did not allow her cat who is strictly indoors. I agreed to care for her cat until she was settled. The two did not get along! Penelope went to the door as she always did one day, and didn't return that evening. That's when I started posting about her missing.
I posted on several sites with a picture and location. I received many prayers for a reunion. I received a message through email stating someone may have found her and they sent a picture. IT WAS MY BABY! Within minutes, I was driving to pick her up. She had made it all the way to the other side of town. Past major highways and all. She went out on Friday afternoon and was back home on Tuesday night.
PawBoost was great. It has even caused me to start thinking that every animal I see may belong to someone and lost their way home. I will be posting and checking whenever I need to!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Penelope's alert. A big thank you to the wonderful couple who found Penelope, who started searching sites immediately after she showed up at their door. They helped bring a family member home safe and sound.
"My neighbors weren't home, as they were getting construction done on their house. Tipsy was very curious so she went and somehow got inside their house. Then after she got in, the builders came and started drilling and stuff, which probably scared her. Later their burglar alarm was going off and we called them to come home to check, because someone might have broken in. They came home and checked and it was nothing. That same night, Tipsy went missing. She had been gone for 6 hours but we weren't that worried yet.
We thought she was just out exploring, so we went to sleep. That same morning I woke up at 6:00 - 4 hours earlier than usual. I went and checked to see if she'd come home and she was still gone. That's when I knew something was wrong. I was crying all day, looking for her and trying to find her. I printed posters and posted her on PawBoost because she has never done this before.
The next day we were still walking all day, calling her and looking for her, but there was no sign of her. I was getting really worried and that night, when the rest of my family was sleeping, I went down to check if she'd come home. She hadn't. I went outside at midnight alone, calling her, crying, and hoping she might hear me. But nothing. I just sat in my front garden, crying and praying that she was safe. I went back home at around 1:00 and my family were worried, looking for me - but I told them I was looking for her.
I was sitting at the table drinking water when I heard everyone in my neighbor's house screaming and shouting my name and my cat's name! We all ran over there, and they said they heard a meow under the sofa. We went in and it was Tipsy! It was so hilarious and joyful at the same time. We were looking for her over 2 miles away from home, and walking far away to find her, but she was just trapped in our neighbor's conservatory. We brought her home and she was safe and happy to be back.
I felt so assured that anyone who saw the alert would be looking out for her. I was content in knowing that there were so many people looking out for her."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Tipsy's alert and commented, offering words of encouragement and support. She was next door the whole time! Her family is so grateful to the PawBoost community for trying to help find her. Tipsy is happy to be home safe and sound.
"We were visiting from out of town when Moo escaped from a window that was left open. Eight of us went out on foot and in vehicles searching. The first thing I did was post on PawBoost that Moo had gone missing. Within minutes, my alert had been shared.
I left some of my clothes outside where she had escaped so she could catch the scent. After six hours of searching, she showed up back were she left from. We are so happy to have her home. I will be telling my friends about PawBoost. It's a great way to spread the word of a missing pet. What a wonderful network."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Moo's alert and helped to find her. Moo was gone for six long hours. She is now home and her family could not be happier.
"She just showed up at our house. We got a recommendation to list her on PawBoost from a friend. We did, and within 30 minutes got a call from a lady who knew who the owner was. She gave us her phone number, and we called the owner who had listed the dog as lost herself. She was so happy to get her dog back.
I'm not sure how long the owner had been searching, but it was only within 30 minutes of listing the dog on PawBoost that we received information on who the owner was. Anyone who loses or finds a pet should use PawBoost. It worked out awesome for us."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And thanks to the Good Samaritan who took care of her and posted the PawBoost alert and to the people that were able to get them in contact with the owner. Thanks to her kindness and action, this fella was home within minutes!
"We let them out to go potty and not five minutes later, Huck and Shylo were gone. We live on a decent size farm so we checked there first. We started looking at 8:30am and started posting missing pets at around 9 or 10am. They normally don't wander much.
I went to PawBoost and saw your things-to-do to help locate our pups. One said don't give up. After looking over our neighbor's big farm with him and his wife, I decided to check one more time down another road. I saw a man weed-eating his property and asked if he had seen them. He said no but he would watch for them. I noticed a driveway where I knew the neighbor, so I went down it hoping to find them.
As I walked toward the door, Huck came around the house, happy as could be. Shylo shortly after. Talking to the neighbors, they said they had been there since 9am that morning. They also had a dog. He was a big boy, but friendly. He towered over our pups but he was good with them.
PawBoost helped so much. Even when it was just an email, you helped me think or go outside the box. It is support. But for us - or me personally - it told me to keep my head up, don't panic. And look. Dogs go places we wouldn't think of. Just look and use sites like PawBoost. It works!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Huck's alert. Thank you to all the neighbors who helped, shared, and assisted on the long day that Huck and Shylo went misssing. By 3:15 that afternoon, Huck and Shylo were home safe!!
"Arlo went missing one Friday morning. We called him in for dinner just before dark that night but he didn’t come home. We left his food outside in hopes that he’d come home and eat it - and then be on his favourite dining chair where he sleeps in the morning. But this wasn’t the case, the food wasn’t touched, and he was still nowhere to be seen. We tried calling him in again but he didn’t come running.
He was missing for 8 full days; those days were brutal. We didn’t know if he was dead or alive, but we didn’t give up. I posted his pictures on community Facebook groups, on PawBoost, and even printed off 100 flyers and put them in 85 mail boxes in my neighbourhood. The other 15 were to go in shop windows and on walking tracks, etc around our area.
The morning after putting the flyers in mail boxes, I received a phone call from a man saying, 'I thought I’d call you and ask if you would like to come and pick up your cat.' I was overjoyed by this phone call. He had been staying with a lovely couple in our neighbourhood who fed him and gave him lots of attention. He was living a second life, named 'Blacky.' I went and picked him up and he ran straight to me.
These kind people told me that they saw a Facebook post and were going to contact me, although they couldn’t find the post again. As soon as they found my flyer in their letter box, they called me. PawBoost is a great resource. Losing a pet and not knowing if they are dead or alive is brutal. Don’t give up, post everywhere, and find your missing pet!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Arlo's alert. And a big thank you to the couple who took such good care of him until they could find his family. Arlo was missing for 8 long days. His family missed him so much and are so thankful he is home safe.
"She was at my backyard fence and my dog was barking to let me know we had a visitor. I put my dog in the house and went out and followed the stray until I was able to pick her up and bring her back to my fenced-in backyard. I gave her water and food, and I brushed her also. I then let her in the house because it was hot outside. She was such a good girl!
I went around the neighborhood and asked as many homes as I could. It ended up that the owner's little boy came to my house and was looking for his 'Missy,' as she had gotten out while they were at church. The little boy was so excited to see her! I asked him to call his dad and the dad came over to identify the pet.
I required a photo (which the dad had on his phone) in order to release the dog into their custody. The dad was shaking, he was so thrilled to get his fur baby back. They have had Missy for over 6 years and she had never gotten out before.
I share ALL the PawBoost notifications on my Facebook page. You never know when that one person who has lost their fur baby will see the post."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Missy's alert. And a big thank you to this Good Samaritan who is always sharing and caring and trying to help reunite lost pets. She took such good care of Missy and was so happy to reunite her with her family.
"Fuzzy escaped under our back gate late one night when we thought she was safely inside our garage. We posted our PDF poster from PawBoost onto a local Facebook missing pets page and one of our neighbors reached out and let us know that she had found Fuzzy in her backyard.
She brought her home safely to us that day and we were all so happy to have her home with us again. Thanks to everyone at PawBoost. It was a super easy way to help raise awareness and put together the details for things like posters and stuff."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Fuzzy's alert. And a big thank you to the amazing neighbor who found her and brought her back home safely. Fuzzy was gone for two days and is now home safe and sound. Her family is thrilled!
"We were on a road trip and stopped at Devil Dog Road to go out and explore. Pokie got out of the car and I was taking pictures of her when she ran after something. We looked for her for nine hours that day and came back the next morning to do more hiking, but we didn’t have any luck. With our hearts broken, we had to come back to NorCal and so we posted an alert on Facebook looking for her.
The next morning, we were finally in NorCal. We got a call at 7:30am from a guy named Joey, telling us he found Pokie right on I-40 at Devil Dog Road. He sent us pictures of her completely safe and we just jumped back in the car and drove 12 hrs back to Arizona to go and get her. The same day Joey found my Pokie, it was her birthday! It was the happiest day for my husband, Pokie and me.
We don’t live in the area, we were just traveling by. PawBoost helped me to ask for help from the community to look for Pokie. This was especially important, knowing I had to come back to California and I would not be able to keep looking for her. I know the PawBoost alert got to many people who helped in many ways, by sharing, giving me tips, praying and looking for her."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Pokie's alert. Thank you to those who helped look for her, offering messages of support, tips, and prayers. Pokie was gone for two days - very far from home - but she got back just in time for her birthday!
"After our wedding reception, a few of our friends came over, and one accidentally let Mia out. What was supposed to be the best night of our lives ended as a nightmare. We spent all night looking for Mia, with no success.
After two days of searching miles and miles for her, posting pictures all over our neighborhood, Facebook and Instagram, one of our neighbors called us when she spotted a cat under their deck. We rushed there and confirmed that the cat was in fact Mia. She was very scared but came straight to us when we called. We were so relieved that Mia was OK and that we were a complete family again.
We are thankful for PawBoost. Although PawBoost did not directly assist in us reuniting on this occasion, I believe the more people are aware of a missing pet, the better it is for everyone."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Mia's alert and tried to help. Thankfully a neighbor found her close by. Mia is home and now the happy couple can really celebrate!
"This dog was wandering around during a fierce thunderstorm one night. He seemed scared and disoriented. We stopped to pick him up and check for ID tags. There were none. We brought him home, dried him off and fed him. We posted an alert on PawBoost the next morning. We received a call from the daughter of the owner, who recognized him from the photo we posted. We were referred to PawBoost by the Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Center.
Her mom came to retrieve Tater a short while ago. She had gotten lost after a gate had been left open. The pet was very scared of thunder and lightning and ran off during the night's storms. We're so glad we could help. And it wouldn't have happened without PawBoost. PawBoost is a lifesaver. This lost pet would still be separated from its loving family without the PawBoost platform. Thanks for being there!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And thanks to much to this Good Samaritan who took such good care of him while working to find his owners. Sweet Tater was scared and lost and is now home safe and sound.
"Petra escaped through a slightly open front door one day around 9pm. She didn't have her tags on, so I was very lucky that a PawBoost reader called me to say they matched my lost dog post with a previous found dog post. Amazing! Just one hour after I posted my alert, she was found. Thanks to all the kind people who went out of their way to help.
The person who found Petra brought her right to me immediately. She was very well taken care of, eating burgers and chicken, with another doggie in the house to play with. I could not believe how quickly this worked to find a dog with no tags. I'm feeling so grateful!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Petra's alert. And a big thank you to the kind person who found Petra and took such good care of her while she was missing. Petra was gone for two days and is now home safe. Her owners are so happy!
"A door was left unlocked, unbeknownst to us. It must have blown open overnight. We found it ajar when we woke the next morning with no cat in sight. Jude was waiting at the back door exactly 24 hours after we discovered him missing. I received some good tips to get him home from comments on PawBoost, and the site kept my morale up.
I think there is something to be said for the support I received from the PawBoost crowd. It's very traumatic to have a furry family member go missing, so the feeling that I was not alone helped to keep me focused and positive."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Jude's alert. And thanks to everyone who offered tips and messages of support. The assistance and encouragement was so important to Jude's family. They're so happy he's home.
"My wife and I were on a walk with my German Shepherd on a trail near our home. I saw the lost senior dog, a Chihuahua, running along the trails. It was heading towards a busy street. My wife had to stop traffic while I cornered the dog to prevent it from running into the street.
I removed the string from my shorts and fashioned a leash out of it. The dog allowed me to put the leash around its neck and lead it home with no issues. I posted a picture of the dog on Nextdoor. A neighbor sent me a link to PawBoost and advised me to post it there, as well as on the SPCA website.
I do not have Facebook so my neighbor posted the picture and description on Facebook as well. I felt that I was doing everything I possibly could to find the dog's owner by posting on PawBoost. I received a message on Nextdoor from the owner about 4 hours later. The senior dog I found was named Scooter. He is 12-13 years old.
He jumped the fence of his home because of the fireworks and he had been lost overnight. Scooter was reunited with his parents within a few minutes of being contacted by his owners. PawBoost is one of the many ways to get the word out that a lost pet has been found. PawBoost increases the likelihood that the pet and owners will be reunited. PawBoost is an invaluable service to the community."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this senior Chihuahua's alert. Thanks to the kind couple who came to his aid and kept him away from a busy street. They took great care of him and did everything they could to reunite him with his parents.
"Sherman flew out of my office when a delivery person opened the door abruptly to make a delivery. I could hear Sherman calling occasionally and I would go to wherever I thought he was. Since he was in the trees and he's mostly green (and small!), he was very hard to see. Finally, the next day, I spotted him. We made eye contact and he inched down to the lower branches. After some coaxing, he flew to my shoulder.
PawBoost helped get the word out to people in the area. It was especially helpful because I don't live in the area where he was lost, but there were people who do live in the area who were able to keep an eye out. PawBoost seems to be a fantastic resource. Hopefully I won't be using it again to report a lost animal! But I would certainly like to help other owners be reunited with their pets."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Sherman's alert. His owner spotted him in a tree, but it meant a lot to him to know there was so much love and support!
"Josie, a primarily indoor cat, went missing from our newly fenced in backyard. What we didn't know was that she had dug a hole large enough to fit through and had slipped out in the evening. As you can imagine, we were frantic. To make matters worse, we had heavy rain and winds that prohibited us from hearing her meows if she was near. We were out every few hours during the day and night trying to find her, but also fearing the worse, as we have heavy construction with home building and coyotes near.
After the rain stopped a few days later, we went out to put flyers on every mailbox. I took our dog and once again started searching every street and alleyway in our subdivision, calling her name. On a street of new homes under construction, one that I had passed by several times over the past 48 hours, I heard a faint cry. As I called her name, the cries grew louder, allowing me to identify which structure she was trapped in.
It was a new basement build with a covering that she must have fallen into, as it was 10-12 feet deep. The structure was also behind a heavily wired fence. My son broke into it, dropped a ladder, and brought her out. She is home and we are elated. What a great community PawBoost is! Everyone offered words of solace when we feared the worst, and encouragement when we badly needed it to keep going, searching all night."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Josie's alert and for sending support and encouragement. Her family will be forever grateful. As they said, pets are our family and when they go missing, so does a piece of your heart. Josie is home and their hearts are whole again.
"I've got a runner of my own, and to keep him from trying to escape daily, we take him on walks in a harness. One day when I was walking him, he led me to this bush. He had his hunting pose on, so I knew something was in the bushes. He'd been so good lately, I thought I'd let him have his fun.
It was then I heard meowing that was so obviously not his, but I couldn't see anything. I called my wife to bring treats so I could lure him out. It only took about 5 to 10 minutes to lure him out enough to pet him and gain his confidence. By that point, he was more than ok with me trying to pick him up and bring him home.
It wasn't my first time finding a stray animal looking for his owner, so I messaged the neighbor who helped me last time and she told me about PawBoost. After posting here, I shared to Facebook and started scouring pages to find any lost pet resembling this little guy.
Personally, I had no luck. I owe all credit and thanks to the people who saw my post and shared it. They are the ones who recognized the cat who was actually posted missing on Nextdoor. We messaged on Facebook and video chatted, and everything about him matched up.
It took me about 2 days to get a positive hit on the owner - who had sadly been looking for him for about a month or two. Needless to say, she was completely overjoyed to find that it in fact was him. If it weren't for my PawBoost post and the people who saw it, I would have never found his owner."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert and who offered up any leads to help reunite him with his family. Thanks especially to this kind couple who found him - with a little help from their own cat - and took him home. His name is Oliver and he's now home safe.
"We have 6 dogs and a couple of them ended up fighting in the yard for some reason. We were distracted with trying to get that scene sorted out. Normally I count heads when they come back in, but with everything going on, I didn’t notice Bindi had not come back inside. I noticed she was missing about 20 minutes later during feeding time and we began searching for her around the neighborhood.
After approximately 4 hours of searching, we started posting about our missing girl. We called shelters to see if she was turned in. By day 2 when we had not heard anything, we made a poster to put in the front yard. It was in the yard no more than an hour and she mysteriously showed up, running towards my driveway. I believe someone had her and with there being so much attention, and a poster being put up in the yard, they decided to turn her loose.
She was much too clean to have been wandering around for two full days to not have been picked up. We suspected someone had picked her up from the beginning and was hoping beyond hope that they would bring her home. She’s been with me since she was born because her mother is also my dog. I have a strong attachment to this little sweetheart - even at 5 months old - and I am so very thankful that she is home safe and sound.
I thought all of my dogs would never be out of my sight because they never go outside without me with them, but this has taught me that you never know when something like this can happen. All of them are going to the vet for microchips. I will do everything in my power to make sure someone can return my dogs to me if they are lost. Bindi was gone for two full days. It may not seem like much, but I was starting to really worry I would never see her again.
PawBoost helped so much. It’s not just the initial alert, because there are so many other people out there who see the post and share it on other sites as well. I’ve had many people contact me to let me know they have shared with vets in the area and other friends and groups. What you do is amazing and I will forever be thankful."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Bindi's alert with everyone from their friends to vets and other groups. Her family was so worried about her and they're so grateful for all the shares and cares. Bindi was gone for two long days and is home safe and sound.
"Marmalade had his breakfast at home and then went out afterwards as normal. However, we were a bit concerned when he didn’t come home for his dinner or tea. The weather was nice though. And he does tend to stay out a bit longer when it’s a sunny day, so we weren’t too worried.
The next morning he still hadn’t returned home, and this was when we really felt like there was something wrong. It’s very rare for him to stay out all night and if he does, he is normally straight back home for his breakfast. Another day and night came and went and we were calling and looking for him everywhere, but there was no sign of him.
Using the advice we were given on PawBoost, we walked around our area, knocking on doors and asking if anyone had seen him. One house said that he often visited them and that they would let us know if he turned up there. Later that night, they rang to say that he was in their kitchen.
It was extremely easy to register and notify PawBoost of our cat's disappearance. A Facebook post was created instantly and it’s fantastic that there were posters for us to be able to print out."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Marmalade's alert and offered great advice and support. Marmalade was gone for three days and is finally back at home.
"My husband and I were on our way to a meeting. Once we stopped at the address, we saw this beautiful male dog coming our way with a tag around his neck. The boy seemed a bit frightened, however he did not run away. The moment he saw me calling him, he responded, and after a few sniffs, I was allowed to pick him up.
After the meeting, we drove around the area to see if anyone was looking for him. After a while, we met a security guard who advised the boy was running around in the area, however he didn't seem able to find his way home. We drove to the nearest vet and asked to scan for chips and phoned the person listed on the chip.
Unfortunately, the person listed had emigrated and the doggy had a different owner. The number on his tag, however, was inactive. We decided to take photos of the boy and leave our details at the vet incase someone asked about him.
After posting an alert on PawBoost and asking around, I received a call from the owner. He'd gone to the vet once he realised his dog was missing and was able to identify his pet correctly. We fed the boy and he played with our dogs and once we arranged with the owner, dropped the little guy off at home.
The community shared the alert so many times, I could not believe it. People even reached out to help me find details of the owner in order get him back home. The alert that was created was very effective and captured all the details necessary to provide the information to those helping in the search."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Jack's alert and reached out to help him get home. A very big thanks to this caring couple who found him, fed him, and took him to his home. What a happy story!
"When the workers came in to work on the drain system repair, they opened the crawl space from the closet. Then they left the lid open to check on bathroom shower, and my little Kitty went to hide. Whether she went inside on her own being curious or fell, I don't know. But for two days we couldn’t find her.
On the third day, we heard her faint meow from the vent underneath the house. We weren’t sure, so we called her and she answered. We saw her sparkling bright yellow eyes through the vent. We unscrewed the vent and extended our hands as far as we could to pull her out. PawBoost helped with so many words of advice and it helped us to never give up hope."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Kitty's alert and sent messages of support and good advice. The poor baby was so thirsty and hungry and was missing for three days. But now she is safe and sound and doing great!
"Cosmocat is an indoor/outdoor cat. One morning, he didn’t come back as he always does, around 5 am. I knew that something must have happened to him. He went missing for 3 days. It’s a very long time when you have no idea if your pet is dead or not, or if he’s suffering.
I reported my lost cat on PawBoost in the morning. The same evening, someone commented saying they have had Cosmocat for 2 days now. I'm so grateful for people like them! The people who found Cosmocat were able to find me through PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Cosmocat's alert. And thanks so much to the people who cared for him for two days and notified his parents. They are so happy that Cosmocat is home safe and sound!
"She was found running the streets by a neighbor and was brought to see if she belonged to another neighbor next door to us. Unfortunately, she was not microchipped, so we could only hope that sharing her picture and putting up a sign would work. She was scared and James, the one who originally found her, was able to pick her up and hold her. She didn't seem to like men so much, but she really took to my neighbor Tonya.
She and her husband Mike were so wonderful to hold onto her overnight, while I was able to assist with posting a found dog alert on Facebook, our local lost animal groups, PawBoost, and a good old fashioned 'Found Dog' sign between mine and my neighbor Tonya's yard. By putting up the sign, her owner's husband found it the next morning and knocked on our door. Tonya was able to follow the man and return her to her owner, who was so happy and thankful. Everyone cried.
We are also thankful for PawBoost, because we received a tip about a little old lady who sits in her yard everyday around 3 with a little chihuahua that looked like Ella. PawBoost helps to spread awareness of missing and found pets on social media. I will never underestimate the power of an audience determined to reunite a pet with their owner!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert and shared useful tips. And thanks to all the neighbors who pitched in to take care of her and find her owners. She was gone for 24 hours, but thanks to everyone's help, she was quickly reunited.
"Bailey ran out the door having to potty and then ran off before we could catch him. I created an alert using PawBoost and was contacted shortly after with contact information for the sweet sweet family that found him! They contacted me within an hour of posting! It was absolutely amazing and a lot quicker than I could have ever hoped for!
If it weren't for PawBoost, I probably would have never found our sweet boy. We are new to Florida and so we don't know a lot of people or have many local contacts. I would have never come across the post of the family that found him without someone contacting me through my PawBoost alert! God bless you! PawBoost is absolutely amazing and was vital in reuniting us with our sweet boy!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Bailey's alert and offered assistance. And a huge thanks to Lauren and her family for taking such good care of our Bailey while he was missing. They made sure he got back to his family safe and sound.
"I had driven up with a friend to her nephew’s house for a family reunion. Mr. BeeBoppin is a great traveler and he was laying in his open carrier for most of the trip. About 20 minutes before arriving at the nephew’s house, Mr. BeeBoppin came to the front and sat on my friend’s lap and curled up.
When I stopped the car, I asked her to wait until I got his carrier. She said, 'He is so good' and opened her door. He jumped from her arms and ran. It was unfamiliar property and he was just frightened and ran. We searched but we were unable to find him.
We put up flyers and notified Animal Control that Mr. BeeBoppin was missing. The hard thing was that he was lost in New Jersey and I reside in another state. I had gone back to the nephew’s house the following Thursday night and stayed outside hoping Mr. BeeBoppin would come to my calls and/or smell that I was around and come over.
On Friday morning I received a call from a woman who said she believed my cat was living in her garage, as she heard his bell but could not find him. We went over to her house and after much coaxing, he ran into his carrier.
Mr. BeeBoppin was gone for a week. The word that PawBoost put out - as well the flyers James one of his dear neighbors put up - helped in reuniting me with my beloved companion."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Mr. BeeBoppin's alert. Thanks to everyone who helped - including James and Suzanne, who put up flyers. And thanks to the lady who found him in her garage and notified his owners. Mr. BeeBoppin was gone for a week and is now home.
"I was driving home from work in a terrible storm. My phone had gone off about 5 minutes before my exit to tell me of a tornado warning in my area. Traveling eastbound, I saw the dog trotting along the side of the road. I could tell she was lost, and turned around, pulled off the road, and tried to get her to come to me. She ran off.
I got back in my car and almost turned around to go home, but I realized the other side of traffic had stopped because she was trying to cross the road. Several people stopped westbound, and got out to try to get her. I pulled over again, and it took 3 of us to wrangle her in. She was scared, soaked to the bone, and wasn't sure she could trust us.
One lady offered her sweater, the other lady a towel, and we corralled her into the back of my car. I turned the heat up, and watched her just shiver in the back seat. It broke my heart. I had been on my way to buy dog food for my own dogs, and decided to go ahead and do that so I could feed her. I also bought some treats and gave her a few.
She didn't trust me, so I dropped them in front of her, and after a minute or two, she ate them. I gave her food which she sniffed, but didn't eat. The bowl of water I gave her, she immediately began to gulp down. When I gained her trust, I looked at her tags. The one with the owner info was completely rubbed smooth. I mistakenly thought the rabies tag was the same way.
A few minutes later, I checked again and could read the rabies tag. I called the vet and they said they would contact the owner. They tried for quite a while, but found the number disconnected. It broke my heart to do so, but it was getting late and I called Animal Control. They took her to the shelter. In the meantime I posted to PawBoost about this sweet girl.
I knew by her condition that she was loved and owned, and hadn't just been dumped. The next morning, I saw a comment on the PawBoost alert saying the owner was on the way to pick her up. I messaged her, as the owner does not have Facebook. She said that through the internet they had tracked down where she was, and by the time we were done messaging, the dog was home and safe."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. A big thanks to this Good Samaritan and everyone who helped her. She took such care to ensure this little fella was safe and had the best chance of being reunited with his family. He was home safe and sound the very next day!
"Gina escaped through a barely cracked open window! She pushed the screen out with her head - silly girl!! After receiving some advice from friends, I placed some of her litter from her litter box outside where she originally escaped from. I believe the smell brought her back - great tip!
I have no idea how many hours she had been missing. As soon as she was back, I was so thankful she was finally home. I'm thankful for PawBoost, because I believe our successes rise and fall based on the support of our neighbors and friends. A service like PawBoost brings together both relationships and technology!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Gina's alert and to everyone who offered their support and shared great advice. This sweet kitty is back home safe and sound and her family could not be happier!
"One morning, we had given Gizmo a bath and removed his collar and tags. The garage door was left open a little too much and he was able to squeeze himself out (leaving his BFF chocolate lab behind). We immediately walked door to door, made flyers, posted on every possible app, posted on social media and even brought in a drone to help with neighborhood search. Unfortunately with no luck.
A week and a half later, we received a phone call from a truly awesome gentleman that said he thought he may have found our Gizmo. His father had found him walking in the street a few minutes from our home. They took him in and then spotted our posted flyers. He wanted to meet to ensure he was our dog.
As soon as we saw him, we knew it was Gizmo. He also became excited to see us, and he handed him to me. Reunited! Thank you to Hector and his family for returning him safely - and his daughter for understanding that Gizmo had a family! Good people are still out there!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Gizmo's alert and helped in their own way to get him home. A big thank you to Hector and his family for taking such good care of him and finding his owners, then arranging to carefully meet with them. Gizmo was gone for a week and a half. A thousand sets of eyes helped him find his way back home.
"This dog was sprinting in the streets and we saw him almost get hit. We were coming out of a restaurant, headed back to our hotel in our car, and decided to chase him down so he wouldn't get hit. We finally coralled him to the side of the road and he was panting so hard from running. He just jumped in our car when we called him nicely over.
We went to a local shelter to see if he was microchipped. No chip, no collar. We weren't from town, so we went back to where we found him and asked around if people recognized him. Nothing. We put an alert on PawBoost and called the county shelter to help out.
They took him because our hotel would not allow dogs. People responded on PawBoost saying that was their dog missing for over a week and to call them as soon as possible. And we were able to tell them he was at the shelter!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And a big thanks to this couple from out of town who rescued him, took him to the shelter, and found his owners. This little fella had been missing for a week and now he is home safe.
