Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"We were getting settled into our new home on Beacon Hill when Oreo wandered off. He never leaves our side, so we didn't expect him to go anywhere out of earshot. We searched a five-block radius for hours and couldn't find any sight of him. He only had a harness on and an unregistered chip, so all the odds were against us finding him.
PawBoost posted my update immediately and the shares and comments just kept coming in. Because of recommendations from the comments, we were able to get connected with some local neighborhood groups on Facebook, which ultimately notified the family who had taken him in for the night. I am so grateful for this service and the active and compassionate audience it reaches and I would certainly recommend to anyone and everyone!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Oreo's alert! Thanks for the calls and messages that helped bring him home. His family is truly humbled and grateful. And Oreo is home safe and sleeping like a baby.
"Simba loves to explore the neighborhood and visit with our neighbors. One day, she just didn't come home! A kind animal lover found Simba in a PVC pipe near her home and could tell she was a beloved pet. So she searched on PawBoost and found Simba's listing!
The most amazing part of the story: Simba was lost in East Fort Lauderdale, just off A1A, and was found almost 15 miles away, off I-595 and 441 out west! How Simba got so far away, I have no idea -- but we are so happy to have her home safe and sound!
There is no way we would have been reunited without PawBoost and the coverage Simba's alert got on FaceBook and Instagram!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Simba's alert. Thanks to the wonderful woman who found Simba and looked on PawBoost to see if there was a match. After more than a week and a half, Simba is back home safe!
"I was walking my dog and this tiny girl was cowering in the middle of the street. She almost got hit! I ran out to her and she came right to me and snuggled up to my neck. She was shaking but happy I had her. I’m new to Texas so I googled about lost and found pets and PawBoost came up.
I posted an alert with a photo and description. Then posted all over social media in my area. She went missing on a Friday. I found her on a Sunday and posted immediately. She was reunited Tuesday. This dog lived 45 minutes away. I would have never thought to look outside my area. But with PawBoost, the owner could search outside her area and was able to find her baby."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And thank you to this Good Samaritan who safely got her out of the street and took care of her, then found her owner. She is now safe at home.
"Our 4-year-old left the house door open while I was getting our 2-year-old out of his car seat and Pixie snuck out without us noticing! I posted an alert on PawBoost, and a few possible sightings were listed in the comments of the post. So I drove to the area and asked everyone I saw if they had seen her.
Luckily, a sweet lady was sitting on her porch holding her! Pixie was gone for about 6-7 hours, but it was only about 1-2 hours after I discovered PawBoost! The word spread fast about Pixie being missing. There were so many shares, and such great information provided that helped us recover her in no time!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Pixie's alert and provided information about possible sightings. Because of these efforts, they were able to find their 'sweet old lady' and she is back home safe and sound!
"Lulu Kitty escaped out the door as we were taking our new 10-week-old puppy out to go potty. We thought she was hiding. But when she didn’t sleep with anyone or come out for breakfast, we just knew she had escaped. She’s an inside only kitty with claws and she's chipped. But she has no teeth due to an illness as a kitten.
She was spotted by two people. The second family saw her and thought it looked 'strange.' They knew the older woman at that house did not have cats and they remembered seeing posts and flyers about a missing cat.
They gave us a call to come see if we thought our kitty might have run under a porch! PawBoost not only got the lost information out immediately but also sent our family fantastic searching tips and ideas, which ultimately helped us bring our kitty home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Lulu's alert. Thank you for sending such great tips as well. Lulu Kitty is now home!
"The cat was hiding in the rafters and roof of a shop. She came right to me after I put out food for her. She was very thin and dirty, but by the way she acted, I realized she was someone's pet. I put an alert on PawBoost. A little over three hours later, the owner contacted me. The owner had been searching for over 5 weeks and the cat was many miles away.
I can't believe the cat was so far from home. They had been looking for over 5 weeks and it was only 3 hours after I posted the alert on PawBoost that they found him. I'm happy she was reunited with her owner and went home!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. Thanks so much to this kind woman who found her in the rafters and posted the alert. This sweet and friendly kitty was miles away from home but is now home safe and sound.
"We had just moved into our new home and my kids were not used to the yard not having a fence. Cinnamon and Leggo got out just 2 days after moving in. We were heartbroken. I posted an alert on PawBoost and it was shared by so many amazing people looking to help us out.
One of those people saw a post on Facebook of a found dog that looked to be mine. She was very helpful and let them know I had a PawBoost alert, which led them to me. My family is beyond thankful for PawBoost and all the amazing people who helped us reunite with our fur babies."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Cinnamon's alert and helped reunited both Cinnamon and Leggo with their family. They were gone for five days and are now back safely in their new home.
"My son opened the door and didn’t realize Louis was outside when he closed it. A Good Samaritan almost hit him on a freeway on-ramp almost a mile away, after he'd been out 24 hours on his own. She stopped the car and she and her daughters grabbed him and brought him directly to a vet to be scanned.
Louis IS microchipped, but the vet couldn’t find it with his scanner! So, thinking that he was a lost dog with no collar and no chip, they brought him home, even though they live in an apartment building that doesn’t allow dogs.
Thank God she didn’t give up. She decided to look online and see if anything popped up. She checked Facebook first, and Louis was the first thing that popped up for her!!! She messaged me and sent a video saying, 'I think I found your dog! Is this him?!'
And I was shaking and crying as I called her. I’m surprised she could understand me through the sobs. I can't believe his microchip FAILED!!! If it weren't for the PawBoost alert, he never would have been found!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Louis' alert. A special thanks to the family who safely rescued him from a busy freeway and never gave up until Louis was back home with his family. Your kindness is greatly appreciated!
"My daughter and I found Dixie running down the sidewalk and then she ran into the road. We were able to maneuver the car heading east and Dixie went up onto the sidewalk. We then quickly turned onto the side street and called her over to us. She was very friendly. We held onto her while we were in someone’s front yard.
We knocked on the neighbor's door and he lent a leash to us. We took the dog down to the animal hospital to see if she was chipped. Fortunately she was chipped. Unfortunately the chip was not registered. We then put up a couple of signs by where we found her and posted on three different lost pet Facebook sites.
The next morning the owner had actually posted on this website as well. I was able to call her by 7 AM that morning and we met at Starbucks to reunite. Dixie was also not wearing a collar because she had just had a bath before escaping out of the house. I think one of the best things about PawBoost is that it is used in this example by both parties —the one searching for the last hour and those who found the dog."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this lost pup's alert. And thanks to this family who made the effort to rescue her and find her owners. Dixie didn't have a collar or a registered chip, but they were able to find each other!
"Simba must have snuck out the door when I was loading my car for a weekend trip. When I came home on Sunday, I found he was missing. So at this point he had been out for 3 days. I walked all around my apartments calling his name. The main concern is that we were having freezing conditions and he is an indoor cat!
I read the blog posts on PawBoost on how to find your cat and utilized all that knowledge to look for my cat. He was eventually found under a storage unit behind my apartment. He would not come out at first, but after about 6 hours of talking to him and bribing him with tuna and treats, he finally came out enough that I could grab him and bring him home.
He was immediately happy to be home! What a happy ending. I appreciated the help PawBoost provided. The blog posts were extremely useful in giving me the knowledge I needed to find him and bring him home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Simba's alert. And thanks to everyone who watched out for him. Simba was hiding out for 6 days and is now home safe.
"Lucky saw a bear and broke free of her leash. She ran into the everglades/marsh and disappeared. I searched for about an hour until I went inside to grab a pair of tennis shoes. I came back out and saw the bear - but no Lucky. So I chased the bear back into the woods and continued searching for my pup.
After 5 hours of searching through the woods, I had to call it a night. She was gone. I left the deadbolt open to keep the door cracked, but she never came. I woke up in anticipation of the shelters opening. I initially got a referral from PawBoost on Facebook to find out exactly where she could be.
PawBoost then guided me to PetHarbor where I didn't find her initially. I just kept refreshing the page and then 10 minutes later I found her. I discovered that a police officer had picked her up, finished his shift, and took her to the shelter. I'm guessing the officer liked her enough to feel that she could stick around. Fine by me. Kind of funny to be honest.
PawBoost is helpful because there are people who can share the experience and give you ideas on where to navigate. I also think it's important to act as quickly as possible when something like this happens. Otherwise you live in fear. I totally thought a bear attacked my pup."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Lucky's alert and sent messages of encouragement and helpful information. And thank you to the police officer who found her and took her to the shelter. Lucky is home safe and sound!
"I found this sweetie roaming about my apartment complex. She was following a couple who was running into their apartment. She wanted to be inside where it was warm. I picked her up and she was happy to be in someone's arms. She still has her claws, but never used them on me.
My roommate and I made her a super warm, little home on our patio and gave her lots of food and water. We would have taken her inside at first, but we have 4 other cats and they were not getting along. She curled up in my lap for a good long while and was purring up a storm the entire time.
Eventually as I was tending to her, a big coyote was stalking around a couple of the apartments to the right of me. So I brought her inside right away and made her a little home in my bathroom. That way she would be separated from the other cats and them from her. She slept on me all night. (I did have to sleep on the floor in my bathroom, which was not ideal.)
PawBoost was the only reason I was able to reunite this baby with her owner. Her owner had posted an alert. I saw the alert and contacted her immediately! It only took me a couple of hours to find the owner, who had been searching for 20 days. The fact that I was able to post an alert for free and that alert was published on the PawBoost website and the Facebook page was immensely helpful."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. And thank you so much to this Good Samaritan who took such good care of her while she found her owner.
"Heem got out through the front door. I was making my bed and saw him through my window. I ran downstairs as fast as I could to grab him, but he was gone. PawBoost helped me by allowing people to comment.
Their suggestions alone helped me find my cat. The suggestions and different ideas on how to find your cat helped tremendously. I never thought to put cat litter out and the night I did that, he was seen on my neighbor's Ring camera. The following night is when I found him."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Heem's alert and sent so many useful suggestions. Thank you to everyone who showed their love and support! This sweet boy was found and is now home safe.
"I went to work one Friday afternoon at 4:00 PM. When I got home from my overnight shift at 7:30 AM, Rosie was not home. There were no signs of escape, however the next door neighbor had seen her climbing the chain link fence beside his house just the day before. I think she got out by climbing the fence.
I called animal control and she wasn’t there. I called my vet and they were closed. She does have a microchip and my phone number on her collar, so I was holding out hope she would be found. We searched all weekend. We put out multiple posts on Facebook and PawBoost. Her posts were shared around 100 times.
By the end of the weekend, when talking to people in the neighborhood, they had all seen her posts and were looking for her. She was found because of a shared post and a kind dog-loving neighbor who recognized her from those posts. She was able to catch her before work one morning and called me.
We were reunited and she was missing for a total of three days. She looks a little dehydrated, but is drinking water and eating food just fine. She’s also sleeping extra on my lap. Rosie's posts were shared so much more because of PawBoost. That’s the reason she was recognized and found. This outcome could have been so much worse."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Rosie's alert and looked for her. A big thank you to Beth for spotting her and catching her and contacting her owner. She is eating and drinking and sleeping a lot beside her now.
"I came out from a hike on a local trail that is not near any houses and found this very thin torti kitty crouched beside the wheel of my car. She made no move to run when I approached and just looked at me. Something in her eyes told me she needed help and quickly.
She had on some sort of a collar (I later found out was a flea collar), which to me was an indicator that she was someone’s pet at some point. I picked her up and cradled her in my arm while I drove home. All the way she made no struggle whatsoever - did not even meow once. I honestly think she was too weak and I was her last hope.
When we got home, I gave her some food and water. I posted the pictures I had taken of her on Nextdoor and within a couple of hours, I had someone suggest to me that I post on PawBoost. I joined PawBoost and posted an alert.
It was only a matter of an hour or so before I started getting messages that identified her as a kitty named Snickers from a neighborhood about 3 1/2 miles away. I got a Facebook message from her Mom Sara, and soon Snickers’ dad Casey arrived to take her home!
From the time I posted her pictures till she was reunited was about 4 1/2 hours. Snickers had been lost for about 6 weeks and had lost so much of her body weight that I don’t know if she could’ve survived much longer. Thank you, PawBoost. It really helps to bring people together to find lost pets."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared the alert of this sweet kitty Snickers. And thanks so much to this Good Samaritan who rescued her and found her parents. It's simply wonderful that she is finally home now.
"We were traveling to see family, trying to get ahead of the ice storm. We stopped in Roanoke for the night and left Oakley with a sitter who came highly recommended. He was supposed to be with them 2 days.
He escaped a couple hours after we dropped him off. He spent 2 days and nights on the run. We drove back to the city over night to start looking for him ourselves. We spent 5 hours looking for him and we were finally able to locate him behind a fence in a cemetery.
We were able to find him based on a tip. PawBoost was absolutely the best resource we had. We had a couple of great tips on there letting us know the general area he was in. It helped us connect with people who had seen him. Without PawBoost, we wouldn’t have known what area to look in."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Oakley's alert and sent tips of where to find him in a place that was unfamiliar to him and his family. They're so happy they were able to find him so quickly.
"My cat, Mr. Meowgi, was in my parents' home when he decided to run out the garage door. It was very unusual because he is very fearful of the outdoors and never ventures far. Luckily, he is microchipped. It turns out he was not too far in the neighborhood - maybe 2 streets away in our complex. He tried to enter my neighbor's house.
She recognized that he was a house cat - despite the fact that he didn't have a collar - because he wanted to go inside. Being the wonderful person she is, she brought my cat to an animal hospital to get scanned and 24petwatch alerted me immediately.
Having PawBoost was so helpful. When your cat is missing, it is important to take action. We spread fliers all over the neighborhood, made posts online through PawBoost, Facebook, Nextdoor, and alerted nearby animal shelters/clinics/hospitals."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Mr. Meowgi's alert. And a big thanks to the neighbor who found him and took him to get scanned for a microchip. Mr. Meowgi was gone for a week and is now home safe and sound.
"He was loose in the neighborhood, and approached my son. My son recognized him as a local dog, and we took him in. He was very sweet and friendly. I posted photos on Craigslist, and texted the Lost and Found number on the PACC Tucson website. Their system suggested PawBoost to get the message out. I posted photos and texts about him, and had a response from another user very quickly!
I received an update from a PawBoost user within 10 minutes with the link that the owner had posted about their lost dog. The dog had probably been lost about 2 hours at that time. This beautiful, sweet dog is now home and happy with his family. I have already recommended PawBoost to so many people! We were so happy to find his owner so quickly."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. Thank you to PACC in Tucson for suggesting PawBoost. And thanks to this kind neighbor and her son who took care of him and found his owner. Apollo is home and happy.
"Coco flew from the garage side when the interior door was opened. He got excited to hear the garage open, as he knew that I was home from work. Unfortunately I was in the car, away of his sights, and that was the last time seeing him. I spent four days looking for him in snowy weather.
I put his photo on Kijiji and reported him to Surrey Animal Shelter too. Someone saw his photo on Coquitlam Animal Shelter and sent it to me on Kijiji. Coco is a smart cockatiel, 3 months old. He flew almost 32 km towards Port Moody and was found by an animal rescue officer on a gas pipeline. He spent 3 days in the snow and was then noticed by her.
I went to Coquitlam Animal Shelter before they opened and waited a bit until I saw the lady who contacted me. She was very helpful. While we were at the door, I heard my bird whistling! I started crying with my kids. He knew us! Thank you guys! When we were reunited with Coco, we couldn’t believe that he had survived, especially with the temperature having been -11.
Cockatiels don't live in cold weather. Coco is safe now and feels the warmth with us. PawBoost was very appreciated by us. They didn’t stop checking with me to see if my bird had been found or not. It gave me hope! Thank you for your efforts."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Coco's alert and offered their support. A big thanks to the folks at Coquitlam Animal Shelter for taking care of Coco. He was gone for 21 days and is now home safe and warm.
"Noel is an indoor/outdoor cat. She was playing outside when it began snowing, so I was trying to bring her in the house. I was taking care of my granddaughter's dog and Noel got scared when she barked at her. She wouldn't come and took off running.
She normally returns, but didn't that day, and then the winter storm hit. We searched for her for days...asked neighbors...no one had seen her. One weekend, a neighbor girl was selling for a school fundraiser, so I asked her if she would take the PawBoost alert poster door-to-door to show the neighbors.
Not only did she do that, but Noel was spotted playing in HER yard! She came roller skating up and told me she thought she found her. We walked the block and found her at another house. The PawBoost poster made all the difference in the world! I'd been searching the area and visiting shelters and the Humane Society regularly for 20 days!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Noel's alert. And a big thank you to the sweet neighbor who went around with Noel's flyer, trying to find her. Noel was missing for 20 days and is now home safe and sound.
"Call me Miss Doolittle. I have a knack of animals finding me over the years. For the first time, I found success so quickly at reuniting them. I saw the dog looking in my bedroom window. I had never seen it before. Around here everyone's scared of dogs, so I ran outside and called it back and it came right to me. It was so very gentle and such a big German Shepherd.
I knew I had to do something. I took a picture after walking him up the street, trying to see if someone was looking for him. No one had seen him before. I brought him back home, fed him some hot dogs, and gave him water. I tried to keep him on my back porch. I googled 'Found German Shepherd' and PawBoost came up. I immediately posted the dog's picture, and within twenty to thirty minutes I got a call from the owner.
I was thanking God I found his home. The owner rushed over, taking off from work, and so pleased because his dog had been missing for three weeks. I was so glad I could be of help. When I had the dog here, I could tell he had a good home because he was trained and very nice and he wanted to come in. I held on to him, brought him inside, and rubbed his belly until his owner got here. I know he's happy to be home.
PawBoost is the most incredible app if you've lost or found an animal. If you ever need help finding your animal or if you've found an animal and need to get it home, just post to PawBoost. It took thirty minutes from the time I posted until I had a call from the owner asking details about weight and the color of his collar."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And many thanks to this kind person who always cares for the lost animals who find her. She took in this big German Shepherd and found his owner within 30 minutes. And now he is home safe and sound.
"The gate to our neighbor's yard was left open and Milo, who was a rescue and free-ranger for his first year, chose to go adventuring. Our family was all engaged in different tasks and each thought that he was with the other! He'd been gone probably two hours before we realized...talk about feeling awful!
The connection was made through FB's local Humane Society page, but it's clear that he's with me right now because of the amazing outpouring of non-judgemental help and support we received. Within a very short time, our plea for help had been spread far and wide within our community.
There are 3 things I liked about PawBoost:
1) PawBoost was easily found and user friendly during a very stressful time.
2) It was free - and I didn't feel like I was being manipulated or exploited during a crisis.
3) I'm now a big believer in the scope and power of social media and PawBoost has a lot of connections.
I'm not normally on social media and the outpouring of help, encouragement, and support - all without judgement - was overwhelming."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Milo's alert. The outpouring of support and encouragement was so helpful and appreciated. Milo is so happy to be back home with his family.
"Merlin's brother Binx pawed at our faulty kitchen door, which opened enough to allow Merlin to sneak out. We woke up in time to see him still hunkering down by the trash bins. We called him, and started to approach him, but he took off into the darkness.
We had no idea which direction he traveled in our hilly city neighborhood, with its busy streets and abandoned houses surrounded by overgrown vegetation. We were especially worried about his safety as a hungry, skittish indoor cat out in the cold. After the first night, we started to think someone took him home for themselves, despite him being microchipped and wearing a collar.
We followed the typical plan of action, posting physical flyers as well as posting in neighborhood Facebook groups, where many people suggested PawBoost. PawBoost had an impressive reach and boosted visibility of our flyer tremendously.
We were flooded with encouraging comments and clever advice, such as sprinkling litter around the perimeter, setting up humane traps, playing audio tracks of our voices, and leaving the door ajar. The latter was ultimately our saving grace because at 3am the second night, little Mers had waltzed right inside, passing by all the humane traps coated in sardine oil.
His alpaca soft fur was matted and wet, and apparently smelly, as his brother Binx didn't even recognize him. That's why after plenty of nom noms, I gave Merlin a bath (to his dismay of course). But sure enough, the two of them were back to booping noses and grooming each other. I would not have thought to leave the door open if it weren't for the collective advice from commenters on my social media posts, including PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Merlin's alert and sent so many encouraging comments and helpful suggestions. All of this support helped make this joyous reunion happen. And Merlin is home safe and clean, enjoying being back with his brother Binx.
"This guy was running along Highway 74/76, crossing four lanes of traffic and trotting in and out of the lanes. A couple of U-turns later and a bag full of treats, I was able to get him to hop in the car. I posted on PawBoost, as well as Nextdoor and Facebook.
Thanks to the coverage this provided, people were able to get me in contact with his humans. I found out his name was Luke. He had been missing for six weeks. And I was able to get him back to his owner the day after I posted on PawBoost. This site makes sharing information and spreading the word so easy."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And a great big thanks to this Good Samaritan who saved him from the busy traffic and took the time to find his owners. Luke was gone for six weeks and is now home safe.
"My daughter, Brenna, and I went to Texas to assist my older daughter after her knee surgery. Luna, who has been happy to have Brenna working from home this past year, must have gone looking for her when we left. She usually never leaves the back yard. My husband called us to say she was missing two days after we left. He put posters up in the neighborhood to see if anyone had seen her.
A neighbor saw her and let my husband know she was hanging around their back yard. They live just behind us one door down! When we got home, they called and let us know she was on their back porch, so we were able to go and find her. She was scared, but is happy to have Brenna back where she belongs - in her room!!!! We are going to get a tracking device to put on her collar, but hopefully she will not wander off again.
Luna was gone for about five days. She doesn't come to my husband very often, so he couldn't go get her or she would run from him. When I first posted her alert on PawBoost, there were so many shares and good wishes to help find her! We are very thankful to our neighbors for their kindness in helping us to bring her home. Thank you everyone!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Luna's alert! A big thanks to the neighbors who helped so much in getting her home. Luna is getting lots of love from her family and they appreciate all the shares and messages for her safe return!
"My husband was taking out the trash and didn't close the back door behind him. Cooper slipped out the cracked door and bolted down the stairs. My husband wasn't able to catch him and he also wasn't wearing shoes or a jacket. He ran back inside and threw slippers and a hoodie on and went back out to grab him.
He didn't know which way he went and we're surrounded by sheds, garages and apartments. It was dark out and we couldn't find him. After that we kept going out in shifts to look for him. We put up flyers and posted him on every lost and found website and Facebook group we could find.
Cooper was found through the Facebook group 'Lost and Found pets in Baltimore County.' I had a friend helping me keep track of posts on the lost and found groups and she saw that someone had posted, asking if anyone's kitten got out, with a picture that looked just like my cat Cooper. It was about 9pm when I got messages and notifications from the group to see if it was my cat.
I responded that I thought it was, and asked where they had seen him. I bundled up the kids and the dog and we all ran to our van to drive to the address we were given. The people we contacted informed us that they didn't have the cat, but they explained that he was very friendly, thirsty and kept trying to get inside their house.
They fed and watered him and made him a little shelter, but a neighbor across the street ended up taking him inside. We knocked on the neighbor's door and explained who we were and that we thought he may have our cat. He went inside and grabbed the cat and it was him! It was Cooper, our baby boy!
He was dirty, but I could tell it was our boy! He was delighted to see our daughters and our dog Olive, and he started purring like crazy! He has not left our side since coming home and follows us everywhere! I'm thankful for PawBoost. Lots of people saw my alert on social media and responded, which ultimately led to our cat being found and back home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Cooper's alert and responded with useful information. Cooper was gone for 21 days and how is home safe and healthy!
"Dixie went missing on a Tuesday morning. We had let her out in the fenced backyard as usual. Throughout the day I thought she was with my husband and he thought she was with me. It wasn’t until later that night that we realized she was gone. We immediately started blasting all over social media and searching the surrounding areas.
We were not willing to give up and we just kept walking around surrounding neighborhoods. PawBoost was able to spread the word about our Dixie going missing and helped us pinpoint the general location she might be. She was found in a ditch, hiding, in a nearby neighborhood. She is perfectly OK and was so excited to see us!
PawBoost helped spread the news that our girl was missing. With the help of so many others sharing our posts, we were able to locate and search the general area where our Dixie was found."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Dixie's alert and helped her family look for her. They're especially grateful for their amazing neighbors, Lia and Al, and also Becky and sweet Ellie for tirelessly tracking her. She is home safe and they are so incredibly grateful!
"She was in the middle of a four-lane highway by the median. She was trying to cross and she almost got hit several times. I put my hazards on, stopped my car, and opened the door. She looked eternally grateful and jumped her sweet self in!
I gave her some water and drove around the neighborhoods nearby, asking people if they knew her or her owner. I had no luck finding out anything about her or her owners. I decided to put up several ads on pet finder sites and in the newspaper. I put an alert on PawBoost. Her owner saw the alert on PawBoost and called me. This sweet pup was home within 24 hours."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet girl's alert and offered 'cares and shares.' Thanks to this Good Samaritan who rescued her from a busy highway and was determined to find her owner. She was home safe and sound within 24 hours.
"Missy went missing from my house one Wednesday. It was unusual for her, as she’s always by my side and she never ventures far either. One night around 6:15pm, I received a phone call from a neighbour who had found Missy in his shed. He’d seen the posters and leaflets that we had put up locally and called me. He had been on holiday and just got home.
She’d been there 9 days! It was amazing when we were reunited, and such a relief! She’s a bit bedraggled and starved, but otherwise good. PawBoost was an excellent service and provided necessary coverage, both amongst the lost pet community and social media. By joining them, it felt like something was being done to find Missy!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Missy's alert and offered their help and support. She was gone for nine days and is now home safe.
"Willow had never left the backyard before. He's completely fenced in. We still don't know how he got out. He's mostly an indoor cat. We just let him out to watch birds when the weather is nice. One week here in Edmonton AB, we had beautiful warm sunny 18 degree weather during the day that turned in to -4 with freezing rain and snow overnight. And of course, that was the day Willow decided to go on a walkabout. He ended up coming home all on his own. But he wasn't at all dirty and barely hungry.
So we are certain someone took him in for the week and when they saw our alert, they decided to let him go so he could make his way home. We are so relieved he's home. Thinking about him suffering outside alone, cold and hungry was torturous. We were so happy to have him run in the door that morning when we opened it. I'm certain PawBoost assisted in his return. They got his photo and details out there for people to see."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Willow's alert and got his information out to so many people. He was gone for 6 days and his family is so relieved he's home.
"I was on my way to the community gas station around the corner when I noticed Prince across the street. He seemed to want to get across, so I stopped traffic and helped him. Soon after, he followed me to the station and then back home the whole way. I didn't need to capture him; he came willingly. Feeding him and offering water and being friendly - as well as just keeping him in a calm state - was all it took.
After I posted the found dog alert, I looked for information about the dog I found, and I saw Prince's post from another member. I connected the dots and reached out to the owner, informing him that I believe I'd found his dog. After waiting for what took about 2 hours, the owner called me back to verify that the dog was indeed his. He came to the location of interest and reclaimed Prince.
Prince had been missing for 3 days and it only took me approximately 4 hours to find the owner. PawBoost is great because it helps reunite lost pets and pet owners and is a good source for networking."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Prince's alert. And thanks to this kind gentleman who got Prince safely out of the street, and then cared for him and found his owner. He's happy to be home.
"Pancake sneaked out a window and disappeared - before he could go to his appointment for his much needed microchip. We put up so many flyers and contacted everyone in our area. We were praying so hard that he’d go to someone for shelter, since he had no idea where he was.
Pancake was missing for six days. He eventually found his way back to our shed, where we had put old clothes and food out for him. The support and suggestions from PawBoost were a great help. It offered me so much peace of mind to know that so many shelters and clinics had his picture and would be watching for him if someone brought him in."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Pancake's alert and offered support and encouragement. Pancake is now home safe and sound.
"I live in a townhome that does not have a gated backyard. I had my other dog outside on the leash with the door cracked open. Diamond, my little one, must have snuck outside. She usually burrows herself in her blankets and I expected her to be in her bed.
We went to all the neighbors close to me and they all said a man was going door to door with a dog, asking if they knew where she belonged. Luckily one neighbor had a ring doorbell video of the man. I was able to get a clear picture of him and post it on social media. From all the amazing people sharing my post, I was contacted by someone who recognized him and they sent me his contact info.
Also from sharing the post, I was contacted by someone who worked at the vet's office nearby. They said a man brought in a chihuahua that matched her profile. I went in as soon as they opened and I was reunited with my baby. I’m so happy that the PawBoost community can all get together to help out and reunite owners with their lost animals. I am truly thankful."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Diamond's alert and helped her owner find her little baby! Diamond is home safe and her owner is eternally grateful for everyone who helped reunite them.
"She was surviving the winter by scavenging the food I had outside and in an insulated gazebo for the outside rescue cats I take care of. She walked in one night and I saw how beautiful and sweet she was. I knew she wasn’t a stray or feral, but lost, as the story unfolds....
I knew I had to take action, fast. I contacted PawBoost and others to find her owners. In only about 12 hours later a relative saw the alert and contacted the owner, then me right after that. The owner briefly lived only houses away for 1 month on the very street I live on. This inside cat had gotten outside in the cold January weather! The owner looked everywhere, but couldn’t find her and had to move in January, heartbroken without her.
This was around the time I saw this petite black cat wandering around in the backyard, eating the food I’d leave out for the stray cats in the neighborhood. The night before the rescue, she walked in as I was in there. She was friendly and purred as I pet her. My thoughts were, 'Now what am I going to do?' I started contacting lost and found groups. I found out later they were searching high and low for this cat, with no luck. They also contacted shelters and read lost and found ads.
When the owner contacted me earlier that day with a positive identification, I was on high alert that evening when she could come looking for food. I had a cat carrier in the gazebo waiting for her. The owner said when you see her, call her name. She came in the rain that night looking for food. I saw her outside the gazebo as I had a plate of food within reach.
After about an hour, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I called out 'Emma Mae' as she answered with a soft meow. This was really her and my heart leapt for joy. I slowly picked her up and secured her in the carrier. I hurried to call the owner to give her the news she’s been waiting for: her beloved cat is finally safe! I was off within minutes to deliver her back into the owner's arms.
I prayed to the Lord I needed a miracle to find her owner, as He answered my prayer very quickly that night. They were searching for almost 3 months, and found her just 12 hours after I posted the alert."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. And thanks so much to this kind person who cares for the outdoor rescue cats in her neighborhood. She took such care of Emma Mae and was determined to find her owners. Emma Mae is home after 3 months!
"One night around 8:30pm, Sheba got out of the backyard before we headed out to go camping. An immediate search turned up nothing, and pet searchers were unable to track her the next day.
After 10 days of searching and no leads, I received a call from a Good Samaritan saying that said they had my Sheba! They told me they saw her in a clear patch among the bushes on the hillside near 1001 steps, a trail near where she went missing.
They climbed into the bushes to retrieve her and carried her up 1001 steps to the road. They were about to call a vet when they saw my poster and called me! PawBoost really helped spread the word!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Sheba's alert. And a big thank you to the couple who found her! Sheba is quite thin and exhausted, but otherwise doing well! And her family is so happy she's home!
"Clementine went exploring one morning, which is perfectly normal for her. However she didn’t return for breakfast, which was unlike her, causing us to report her as missing.
Clementine was reunited when she turned up days later in a neighbour’s garden. She had injured herself, so required immediate vet attention, but is now very much on the mend. (Just a shaven leg to show for it!)
PawBoost helped us spread the word to make sure people knew how to contact us if they found her. They also helped by creating posters that provided useful information about her whereabouts. She was gone for four long days!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Clementine's alert. Her leg is on the mend and she is home safe!
