Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"My mother had the garage door open and Coco snuck out behind her while she was working on a project. We looked everywhere, but he was just gone. One of my friends actually referred me to PawBoost when she saw that Coco was missing on Facebook. She said that PawBoost helped her find her dog when he went missing. So, I put out an alert for Coco on PawBoost. I then printed his missing poster from the PawBoost website and I posted it all over the neighborhood on every mailbox and on every light post, even in the apartment complex across the street from us.
I was just beginning to lose hope when I received a phone call. My neighbor in the other complex saw the post and called me saying that Coco had been with him for 3 days! Coco had apparently followed his daughter to her bus stop, so she decided to take him home. Once he saw Coco's PawBoost alert, he knew that the dog she had found must be our Coco. He brought him over to us and we were so happy to have him back! Thank you to everyone who helped us find our best friend by sharing and volunteering to help look for Coco. It means the world to us!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Coco's alert. Thank you to the wonderful neighbor and his daughter for taking care of Coco and getting her back home! After three difficult days, Coco is finally home, safe and sound.
"We moved to a new house and Hemi, likely exploring her new home, got locked in the neighbor's farm shop that sits near our property boundaries. The farmer was out on vacation, so we had no way of knowing that Hemi had found her way into his shop. We had no idea where she was and we had looked everywhere, so we decided to create a PawBoost alert for our kitty. The farmer got home from his trip and found Hemi in his shop.
He wanted to keep her, but his wife thankfully recognized her from the PawBoost alert on Facebook, and she contacted me so that she could bring her home! Hemi was missing for 2 days and 3 nights. The morning of the 3rd day, we were reunited! PawBoost works! Pet owners share the posts because they know what it's like to lose a beloved companion, and fellow owners reached out to me with ideas on how to best search for my lost kitty. Thank you to everyone who shared!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Hemi's alert. Thank you to the wonderful couple who made sure that Hemi was reunited with her pet parents! Hemi is now back to being curled up on her favorite chair, safe and sound.
"Wade actually found us! I was outside and saw a delivery truck lock up the brakes on the truck route. I then heard a dog crying, so I was immediately concerned. I told my wife that, if he came back, we would hold him until we found the owner. He did, and it was almost dark, so we took him in, fed him, and bathed him. We called Animal Control the next day and the deputy came out, scanned him, and found a microchip! However, we discovered afterwards that the microchip registry company was closed for the next few days. We told the deputy that we would keep him safe until the owner contacted them.
I decided to find a service to report him to in the meantime. I found PawBoost online and we had not heard back from Animal Control, so I decided to post an alert for him. We were contacted by the owner within 30 minutes! He let us know that his dog's name is actually Wade Williams, and he came and picked him up 10 minutes later! Wade was adopted by his current owner from a shelter five years ago, so I am so happy that Wade is back home! Thank you for your help. PawBoost was the only service that actually helped get him home."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Wade's alert. Wade was missing for five days before this Good Samaritan took him in and found his pet parent. Welcome home, Wade!
"Dexter ran out one night just before midnight due to illegal fireworks. I chased him with my car until we reached a narrow dirt road and he changed directions. I couldn't turn the car around fast enough to see where he went. I was out at all hours of the night looking for him, but he was nowhere to be found. When I finally got home, I immediately put out a PawBoost alert for him in hopes that someone would find him.
A kind gentleman saw the PawBoost alert and recognized him. He called me the next afternoon and let me know that he saw him and sent me pictures and videos. He was not able to grab him, but he helped me try to catch Dexter all afternoon, with a crew of kind people from the community, for hours until we finally got him on a leash. I will be forever grateful to all of the kind folks who helped me find my fur baby!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Dexter's alert. Dexter was missing for 16 hours before he was finally found and reunited with his pet parent. Welcome home, Dexter!
"One of our guests didn't close our front door completely when leaving one day. Johnny Cat saw her chance for adventure and ran away. A very kind lady noticed Johnny Cat hanging out with some feral cats and took her in to care for her. She contacted me via PawBoost to let me know that she had Johnny Cat and to arrange her pick-up! Johnny Cat was gone for a full week! We were heartbroken. We were constantly looking for her, calling for her, and setting out her food, treats, and toys in the hopes that she would find her way home.
I called animal shelters and the pound in our area and a very helpful volunteer let me know about PawBoost. Within 7 hours of posting Johnny Cat's information, I received the e-mail from the woman who found her and was caring for her. PawBoost was instrumental in bringing Johnny Cat home. It worked so much better than us looking for her ourselves and sending out fliers in our area. She ended up being rescued almost 2.5 miles away from our house - way beyond the boundaries of where we were looking and sending out her information. Thank you to everyone who helped bring our Johnny Cat home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Johnny Cat's alert. Thank you to the wonderful woman who cared for Johnny Cat until she could reunite her with her family! Johnny Cat was missing for 7 long days, but is now back in her warm, loving home with her wonderful pet parents.
"Elbow slipped out of her collar and under the fence in the backyard in the blink of an eye and took off. She was spooked by the fireworks that go off in the neighborhood every year. She always has a panic attack during fireworks displays and has severe anxiety in general. It was just the perfect storm. We started searching the surrounding area immediately, and once we realized that she was nowhere to be found, panic and severe worry began to set in.
It was 1:30 AM on New Year’s Eve. We started knocking on the neighbors' doors, printing flyers, and searching. Needless to say, it was a sleepless night. It wasn’t until around 8:00 AM that a friend suggested we try PawBoost. We created a post and boosted it. By noon, I got the call from Elbow's saviors: they had her safe and sound! Kerwin, the angel that saved her from a busy road, said that he picked her up after almost hitting her at around 1:45 AM.
So she was only running the streets for fifteen minutes! Thank God, because she is not the kind of dog that does well when left outside alone. She can barely see, has three teeth, and is seven pounds. She was lost for a total of 16 hours before Kerwin, her New Year’s Eve angel, dropped her off back at home! Elbow was returned home safe and sound as a direct result of PawBoost. The lovely family that found her said that they saw her PawBoost ad and contacted us directly! Thank you so much for this platform, PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Elbow's alert. Thank you to Kerwin for taking care of this sweet pup and getting her home! After 16 terrifying hours, Elbow was reunited with her loving family. Welcome home, Elbow!
"Stanley was found on my family’s farm after hitching a ride with one of the employees. He was very friendly and really wanted to come inside. Unfortunately, because of my grandfather’s health, we couldn’t allow him inside. We have a lot of appreciation for farm cats, so our farm comes equipped with a heated cat room and we have feedings twice daily. Random cats show up frequently; some stay, others go. This orange fellow was obviously cared for, so I first posted him on our local community Facebook page.
I wasn't getting any leads, so a woman suggested that I check out PawBoost. I made the PawBoost post, and Stanley’s owner made their own post right after mine. Through PawBoost, we were able to connect and reunite Stanley with his family! He had been missing for over a month! With the help of multiple people noticing matching characteristics (Stanley only has half a tail), we were able to connected the dots and get Stanley home, safe and sound."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Stanley's alert. Thank you to the Good Samaritan who helped get Stanley home! After a devastatingly long 44 days, Stanley is finally back home safe. Welcome home, Stanley!
"We are unsure if Redley got spooked or if she decided to chase deer out of our fenced-in backyard, but she somehow escaped our yard during dinner and never returned home. That was incredibly unlike her, so we were immediately very concerned. We knew that the best way to find a lost pet is to have everyone nearby in the community be on the look-out for your beloved fur baby, so we went straight to PawBoost.
Through the help from PawBoost, and our amazing community, some sightings of Redley started being reported. One-by-one they came in, and we were able to piece together the area that she stuck around. Finally, because of our postings, someone reached out when they saw her on their neighbor's Ring doorbell video. That's when we knew she was alive and healthy!
We tracked down the house and put out our scented clothing and other items in an area on the property for her to find. When the owner of the property returned home, Redley was there laying out on our items, and she eventually followed the owner inside. He called us, and viola! After three days, we finally got our baby back! Thank you all so very much!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Redley's alert. Thank you to everyone who worked together to get Redley home safe. After three long days, Redley is back home with her loving family!
"Scraps got spooked off by some fireworks one day and ran away. We kept looking for him, but he was nowhere to be found. As soon as we got home from our initial search, I immediately posted an alert using PawBoost. I even reactivated my Facebook account to post about him, and also to keep track of his PawBoost alert. Three days later, I woke up to a notification from Facebook and a text message from a number that I didn’t know.
To my surprise, it was one of my neighbors from the street down from me. She sent me pictures of Scraps at her house! I asked my lovely neighbor how soon I could pick him up and she said anytime, so I picked him up when I got off of work that night! Now Scraps is finally back home with our family. Without the help of PawBoost, my neighbor wouldn’t have been able to contact me! Thank you to my neighbor for keeping him safe! Thank you so much to all parties involved!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Scraps' alert. Thank you to the amazing neighbor who took Scraps in and reunited him with his family! After three devastating days, Scraps is finally back home safe.
"My mother opened her back door one day, and Millie scooted out of it before she could stop her. She is only a kitten and has not been outside enough to know where she was. My mom left her favorite blanket and kitty food outside to try and give her a scent back home. It wasn’t working. When I called to check on my mom, she was crying and seemed so sad on the phone. I felt so bad for her; I knew I had to do something. I immediately went on the internet to see if there was a website to help find lost pets. I came across PawBoost and entered Millie’s information.
The very next day, I had an email from an amazing individual who told me that a friend had posted pictures of a found kitten in the same region as my mom’s house. I had my mom check Facebook and, sure enough, it was Millie! She was so happy that she literally screamed! The nice family that took her in had found her on the same day that she went missing, so Millie (thankfully) spent no cold nights outside alone.
They contacted my mom and verified that she was the owner. Within a couple of hours, they had reunited Millie with my mom. Mom was so thankful! She offered them a finders fee, but they turned it down saying they were just happy that Millie made it back home. She was so thankful! Everyone who saw the post sent their wishes and prayers that we would be able to find her! We could not have done it without everyone’s help! Thank you all very much!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Millie's alert. After four very difficult days, Millie is back home with her loving mom. Welcome home, Millie!
"This sweet cat found us right before Christmas. He was outside of our yard and, with a little coaxing, he came to us. We decided to call him 'Billy' until we could find his owner. He stayed around as we were feeding him and giving him lots of loving. We knew that he had to have a home, as he was so gentle even though he had his claws, and he was such a lap cat! After taking 'Billy' to the vet to see if he was chipped and it turned out that he wasn’t, we called the Humane Society. Unfortunately, their recording said it could take a week to get an appointment, and all 'Billy' wanted to do was come into the house! He was really missing his family.
After we posted finding 'Billy' on PawBoost, his owner called the very next day! PawBoost worked so well - I didn’t have luck with any of the services in town, but posting 'Billy' on PawBoost was how we were able to reach his family. His owner had been checking every day! 'Billy,' whose real name is actually Nix, was gone for 45 days! I’m sure that they were losing hope of finding him. He had traveled over 4 miles from his house, too! We're so glad that Nix is finally back with his family."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Nix's alert. Thank you to the Good Samaritans who helped to reunite this sweet fur baby with his family! After 45 long, hard days, Nix is finally back home where he belongs. Welcome home, Nix!
"Ron, our Greyhound, was new to our family. He slipped away when my husband was taking him out - leash still on. My husband was not able to coax him back in with treats or anything. Ron took off running and was nowhere to be found. After a brief initial search, we announced on PawBoost that he was missing. To our surprise, people immediately began to search from all over! We put up signs all over the neighborhood hoping that somebody might spot him.
Finally, we got sightings of him being by our town's fire station. We went to go set up a site in that area for him to eat, get water, and have shelter. Eventually, right when Ron's foster mom and grandmom drove up, Ron came running! Ron was missing for five days. This is a long time for a Greyhound - if it hadn't been for sightings, he would never have been found. It is amazing that he lived through several very cold nights considering that he has very little fur and had to have been very cold. Thank you so much for your help! With the info we received, we were able to pinpoint where he was and he finally came back to us!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Ron's alert. After five long, cold days, Ron is happy to be back home with his loving family. Welcome home, Ron!
"We're not sure how Oso and Ember got out of the yard, but they did. We did the usual: searching the nearby area, posting fliers, calling the shelters, and still nothing. Our next step was to post a PawBoost alert. It was so easy, and the messages came straight through! A lot of people were reposting our alert as well. It was a huge relief to find such a great community of people in such a scary time!
The best thing about PawBoost is that just one post on PawBoost goes to so many different platforms, and that is exactly how the finder connected with us. The person that found our fur babies reached out to us after three very stressful days. They were 30 miles away! The finder took them home so that they wouldn’t get put in a shelter. His wife searched Facebook and found our PawBoost alert! Thank you again to everyone who helped bring our sweet Oso and Ember home!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Oso and Ember's alert. Thank you to the kind individual who took in these two cuties and got them back into the arms of their family! After 3 long days, Oso and Ember are happy to be home.
"Bailey slipped out undetected as I went to remove things from the porch one evening. By the time her absence was noticed, she had disappeared into thin air. We immediately put up fliers, listed her on PawBoost, and everything else that we could think of. PawBoost was a great help in getting her information and picture out to the public, which was extremely important and appreciated.
Finally, after 23 days, someone spotted her! I followed up on the sighting and there she was! She was 4 or 5 houses down the street from us, hiding under a deck, just trying to stay warm in the cold weather. The main thing that brought Bailey home was the PawBoost fliers and great neighbors who kept an eye out for her. It’s extremely important to immediately get the word out to as many people as possible once your pet goes missing, and PawBoost does that very effectively! Thank you for everyone who helped us find our sweet Bailey!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Bailey's alert. After 23 long days, Bailey is finally back home safe and sound. Welcome home, Bailey!
"We got home late one evening and our headlights caught her as we turned onto our street. She came right up to our daughter, who hopped out of the car to get her. She was near a pretty busy street, so we knew that we needed to take care of her. Another neighbor was kind enough to keep her in a kennel overnight. The family fostering her lived one street over and had been looking for her overnight, but they couldn’t find her. Apparently, the gate had blown open in the wind and she wandered away.
The family fostering this beagle, who we later found out was named Abby, saw the post on PawBoost and immediately contacted me. Everyone was so glad that she had found a safe place to spend the night! She is little and slow moving, so we are just glad that we saw her and could get her out of the cold. We brought her back over to her owners the following afternoon and she was finally reunited with her sister beagle! This is the second dog that PawBoost has helped us find the owner for - in under 12 hours both times! Thank you for helping us find Abby's family!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Abby's alert. Thank you to the wonderful neighbors who worked together to get this sweet pup home! After 12 long hours, Abby is back home safe with her fur sister and foster family.
"Both Bella and Zoe had their collars and leashes attached, in preparation for going out and getting into the car. The leashes were dropped to get them in, and they made a run for the forest. We searched for hours to no avail. I knew that the more people that are aware of a lost animal, the higher the chance that someone will spot them, so I posted an alert for Bella and Zoe on PawBoost.
After four days, a painter from Whitby was in the area doing a paint job at a secluded residence. As she drove up the long drive, through the trees, she said she thought she saw two wolves! Then, she realized that one had a leash attached to her collar. She remembered the posts on Facebook and called me immediately. We arrived within ten minutes and called for Bella and Zoe in the direction of the last sighting. After a few moments, they finally emerged from the forest! Thank you so much to everyone who helped me find my girls!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Bella and Zoe's alert. Thank you to the kind individual who remembered these sweet pups from their alert and contacted her pet parents! After 4 long days, Bella and Zoe are finally back home, snuggled up together, where they belong.
"Esther loves to explore the grounds of the park we live on. A little backstory: Esther has chronic respiratory issues. She also has no teeth, from a genetic condition. She has had two surgeries in the past 5 years to remove all of her teeth. Esther has been through it, and she is a cat through and through.
She loves to hunt. She loves running like a wild tiger across an open field after our kids. She loves meeting new people (and sneezing on them). She has followed people coming to hike on the trails along our home for their entire hike! She's amazing. She always comes home to eat, to snuggle, and to get all the rejuvenating sleep that she needs.
She went out one night after dark. She wasn't back at midnight, she wasn't back at 2:00 AM, and she wasn't back in the morning. She wasn't back for the entire following day. We went on the search for her, and people in the park kept an eye out for her. We called the humane society, the police department, and we texted pictures of her to the neighbors. Still nothing.
I posted on PawBoost to help get the word out to the community. About 8 hours later, I got a text and a call from a person nearby - a mile and a half away! They said that Esther had showed up at their house the day before, asking to be let in. They fed her, cared for her, and tried to find her owners. They searched local lost pet groups, found my PawBoost listing, and brought her back to us!
Thank you so much to everyone who shared our alert and had advice for finding her, and a big shout-out to the kind souls who sheltered her and reunited us!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Esther’s alert. Thank you again to the amazing couple who found Esther and returned her to her pet parents. After 32 long, worrisome hours, Esther was found and reunited with her wonderful family! Welcome home, Esther!
"We accidentally left our back gate open when heading out for dinner, and since Maka has a doggy-door leading outside, she managed to slip out of the house. She spent about 30 minutes waiting outside our front porch, then wandered off down the road. (We have a Ring doorbell, so we could see the security footage.) When we returned home around midnight only to realize she was gone, we were terrified.
We scoured the neighborhood until 3:00 AM, then started posting notices on every single online site that we could think of. The following morning, we started scouring the neighborhood again at 6:00 AM, as well as posting up about 150 flyers. We even enlisted the help of friends and neighbors to help us physically search the area. To say we were worried sick is an understatement. Nothing on earth could have been more important to us than finding our baby girl.
PawBoost blasted out our notice across Facebook, which saw instant activity and a lot of interaction. It was that post that somebody quickly identified my dog as a similar dog to one that they'd seen at Pasadena Humane, and forwarded me the info. Sure enough, it was my dog! My heart (and tear ducts) burst with profound relief the moment I saw this.
It was about 20 hours from when our dog went missing to when we located her, and probably about 15 hours from when we first posted on PawBoost to when we were notified of her whereabouts. I've been told that the first 24 hours are a critical window, and I honestly don't know if we would have located Maka in that time had it not been for PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Maka’s alert. Thank you as well to the amazing individual who saw Maka at the Pasadena Humane Society and contacted her pet parent. After 20 long, scary hours, Maka is back home with her loving family!
"Charly was running through traffic in a busy intersection. My wife and niece were driving by and saw her, so they pulled over and stopped traffic to keep her from getting hit. Charly then ran down a road and behind a church. My wife and niece followed and, after some coaxing, she let my niece put a leash on her. We brought her home and set her up in the garage with a bed and blankets. We also gave her food and water. This calmed her nerves a bit, so she finally laid down and rested.
PawBoost was instrumental in helping Charly reunite with her owner. A few hours after I posted on PawBoost, Charly's owner posted that she was looking for him. I saw that post and we had a match! The owner had been searching all day for Charly. When we connected we were both in tears! Thank you to everyone on Facebook and PawBoost for making this a happy ending!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Charly's alert. Thank you to the Good Samaritans who found Charly and brought her back home to her pet parents! After one very long day, Charly is back home safe with her loving family.
"I let Twinkie out of his cage daily, and he always enjoys his free time. One day, my nephew was over after school and happened to leave the door open for a little too long. Twinkie saw his opportunity and slipped out of the front door! We searched everywhere up and down our street but couldn’t find Twinkie anywhere. I posted Twinkie on Facebook and PawBoost, and tons of wonderful people shared my post.
A little over 24 hours later, I got a call from a nice lady who lives around the block saying she has my Twinkie, safe and sound! Thanks to PawBoost, she was able to contact me and return him to me. Now that he’s home safe, I’m going to make sure I never let him out of my sight or near any doors again. Thank you, PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Twinkie’s alert. A huge thank you to the wonderful neighbor who found Twinkie and returned him to his family! After 26 hours, Twinkie is back home where he belongs. Welcome home, Twinkie!
"We had just moved to a new area. We had an in-ground electric fence already installed at our new home and we had trained Zoe on it for a while. One day, while she was outside, she didn’t come back. We walked the property and she was gone! We had zero hope, as we are in a new area and we didn’t think that she would find her way home. She was missing for several hours, so we decided to post an alert for her on PawBoost.
Within an hour of posting on PawBoost, we had located our fur baby via social media! Holy cow! Zoe and our other little pup were so happy to be reunited! We had to park outside and let them have the garage to themselves to play and romp around in all their excitement while we tried to continue moving in! Thank you so much! We don't know how Zoe busted out of the invisible fence area with her collar on, but our family is forever grateful!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Zoe's alert. After several terrifying hours, Zoe is finally back home safe with her best dog-friend and her loving family! Welcome home, Zoe!
"Elvis basically just disappeared out of our backyard. We still don’t know how he got out. We regularly make sure the fence is secure around the perimeter. Maybe he dug himself out chasing after something? Still a mystery.
One of our neighbors saw the PawBoost alert first, immediately recognized him, and then promptly responded to my Nextdoor post. She lives a little ways away at the end of my street, and she notified everyone in that part of the neighborhood. He was soon spotted within a few hours!
PawBoost is a VERY helpful service that got the word out promptly and widely! Many of my friends on Facebook shared it. He went missing in the late afternoon/early evening, was gone overnight, and was then found by the afternoon of the very next day! Thank you. My relief in finding our old, little doggy is indescribable!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Elvis’ alert. Another huge thank you to the wonderful neighbors who helped make this happy reunion a reality! After just one day, he was found and brought back home to his loving family. Welcome home, Elvis!
"My son's girlfriend and her family recently lost their place to live. In an emergency, because they struggled to find another place to live, they had to move in with her elderly grandfather who suffers from Alzheimer’s. He accidentally let Luna out. She had never been away from home before, so she got lost in an area that was unfamiliar to her.
Thanks to PawBoost, the flyers that we made from their site, all the non-stop social media postings, and with the help of Azusa PD, we were able to get tips on locations where she was spotted. A few women and Azusa PD were able to run her into a secure area and wait for us to get there. As soon as Luna saw her grandma and best pet-friend, Jake, she came running and we were able to get her!
For approximately 33 hours, she was missing, tired, hungry, and so scared. She is now safe and extremely happy with her mama and my son where an accident like this won’t happen again! A huge thank you to the village that came together to help find our Luna. Also, a massive thank you to the Azusa Police Department for patrolling and helping us search."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Luna’s alert. Thank you again to everyone who helped search around the area for this sweet pup! After a long, scary day and a half, Luna is finally home safe with her family.
"Boots had been visiting me for over a week. I took him to see if he was microchipped and he wasn't, but he was fixed. One day, I brought him inside so that he wouldn't die from the intense weather that we were having. He was so loving and sweet, so I knew that he had to have an owner.
Within four hours of me posting on PawBoost, two people had matched him with his owner, who had been looking for him on the site! Boots had traveled over a mile a way, over two busy streets, and some rail road tracks. He had been missing for two months! Unbelievable! I posted on PawBoost and within four hours he was home! Thank you for helping me reunite Boots with his human family!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Boots’ alert. Thank you to the kind individual who took Boots in and found his family! Boots was missing for two long months, but is now back home, curled up in his pet parents' arms, where he belongs. Welcome home, Boots!
"One Saturday, Fluffy was able to dig a hole under the fence and, after his project was complete, he ran away. He had never done this before! After three days of looking for Fluffy and putting up flyers around my neighborhood, someone told me about PawBoost. At that point, I was desperate, and I was determined to post anywhere I had to in order to find Fluffy.
Shortly after posting Fluffy missing on the site, someone messaged me a PawBoost alert of a dog that was found near the area that my dog went missing. It was my Fluffy! PawBoost helped me find my Fluffy! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who posted and for the helpful tips that made it possible to find our beloved Fluffy and bring him back home safe. We are overjoyed! Again, we thank you all so much!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Fluffy’s alert. We would also like to give a huge shoutout to the amazing individual who saw Fluffy's Found Dog post and sent it to his pet parents so that they could find him! After four long days, Fluffy is back in the loving arms of his family. Welcome home, Fluffy!
"I found her when she was running down a green belt across from my house. I went outside to try and catch her, and she came right to me! Without PawBoost, I’d not have known who to reach out to. Through PawBoost, I found a lady who works with identifying lost pets, and she was able to investigate the dog’s unregistered chip. She found the owner’s name and address for me!
I went to their house, but there was no one home, so I left a note with my name and number to call. The owner called as I was driving home to say his wife and kids could meet me back at their house, so I turned around and drove back to deliver their pup! It only took me about two days to find the owners. They said that she had been missing for almost an entire month!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared this sweet pup’s alert. A huge thank you to Dawn for finding this wonderful dog's family! After almost a month, the family is so happy to be reunited with their fur baby.
"Tango escaped through a door that was opened to get the dog in on a windy night. His wings were clipped, but clipped wings were not enough to keep him from soaring in 35 mph winds. Terrible things can happen in an instant. Someone found Tango and took him to the local Humane Society. I started receiving calls and texts within minutes of the Humane Society's Facebook post of a found bird.
Folks recognized him from the PawBoost posts and quickly started contacting me! I made contact with the Humane Society that next morning and was able to get him home. Tango got out on a Wednesday night, was found that Thursday evening, and came home the very next Friday morning!
PawBoost is amazing! When someone found Tango and took him to the Humane Society, I received two phone calls and a knock on my door in a matter of about ten minutes because he was recognized from the PawBoost post. Tango is a Quaker Parrot, and surely would not have survived the freezing temperatures that night. So very thankful for the way things turned out!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Tango’s alert. We would also like to give a huge thank you to the wonderful Humane Society that sheltered Tango from the storm while he was missing! After just about 2 days, Tango was back home with his loving family. Welcome home, Tango!
"Maple managed to escape while we were out shopping. A few people saw her on the run, so they tried catching her. This scared her, so she took off running. Luckily, someone saw our PawBoost post and contacted us that they had seen her in their area! We drove over to the place that she was seen and eventually we were able to track her down.
She ALMOST ran from us because she was just so traumatized from people chasing her. So we just all backed away and gave her space. Her favorite person approached her slowly and sat down while calling her, and she came running to us when she realized it was her daddy!
Getting a sighting of your lost pet is so important! We had been searching in the wrong direction for 24 hours on foot! With more people recognizing her from online posts and flyers, we were able to get a sighting, locate Maple, and finally get her home safely!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Maple’s alert. Thank you to the amazing individual who was able to find Maple and tell her pet parents where to look! After 24 grueling hours of searching, Maple was finally reunited with her family.
"One Wednesday, I left for work as per usual. The pups have a dog door for access to their big, fenced in backyard. When my boyfriend came home, Rosie was not there. She must have climbed the fence because there was no evidence that she had dug under it. After missing for at least 18 hours, Rosie came wandering back home.
I had been up all night waiting on her in case she did come home. She was okay, but was shaken and smelled like someone else’s house. I genuinely think that someone found her and, because of all of the posts and shares in the community, they knew to return her back to our home.
PawBoost got her picture and information out there, and they helped make it possible for the love of my life to return! We live in a rural community where, without the support of an organization like PawBoost, information doesn’t get around as quickly. You never know how many people see these posts and know people in your area who can share information. If your dog is missing, always post! It can only help."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rosie’s alert. Rosie was missing for 18 long, stressful hours before she was finally reunited with her loving family. Welcome home, Rosie!
"We have a mine site in the middle of town. One of my guys called and said that we had a dog running around the site. The site has heavy equipment and semi trucks all over the place. After chasing her around for what felt like forever, we finally we got her cornered, and she tried to bite me a couple of times. Finally, I earned her trust and got a make-shift leash around her. Once we had the leash on her, I picked her up. She gave me a couple kisses and she sat in my lap and started to shake.
One of my guys wanted her for an elderly neighbor of his. About 6 months ago, the neighbor's wife passed away, and his dog did too soon after. Our trucking superintendent rescues stray animals as a hobby, so he is our go-to-guy when we get into these situations. I brought the dog to him and he took her to the vet to check for a chip. She didn’t have one. The vet kept her overnight, so that same night I asked my mom if she knew somewhere to post her. She then set up a PawBoost account for the pup.
The next day, my buddy brought her to his neighbor and she laid down in his lap and relaxed. That same night, I got a call from a woman named Lynette. She was the owner and said that the dog's name was Brownie! I talked to my guys and told them that we had to bring Brownie back to her owner. They were more than reluctant to give her back, so I called Lynette back to see if there was any way that she would let my buddy's neighbor keep Brownie.
After talking to Lynette, I found out that Brownie was one of her rescue dogs and that she runs a dog rescue! I explained that we had found Brownie a home and asked if my buddy's neighbor would be able to adopt her. She said yes! So I called my guy to tell him the good news and he broke down in tears. He was so happy that his neighbor finally has a new family member! I was crying too at this point. This doesn't happen a lot with construction guys, so thank you to PawBoost and Lynette for helping us work this out in the most beautiful way!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Brownie's alert. Thank you to Lynette and everyone else who helped make this happy ending a reality! We are so thrilled that Brownie has a new pet parent who needed her as much as she needed him. Welcome to your new home, Brownie!
"Prince was accidentally carted out of the house in a box spring when a new mattress and box spring were delivered to our house. He hides when strangers come to the house under the bed in the old box spring, and my mom didn't realize what had happened until an hour later when she kept calling him and he didn't come to her.
PawBoost gave me the tools needed and a community of support to guide me through the process to begin the search. I was an emotional wreck and feared the worst. I used the posters that I made through the PawBoost app and some personal ones to circulate in my neighborhood and surrounding areas.
My neighbor Barbara was alerted by her neighbor of a new cat in the area, and she was curious to see if he belonged to someone in the neighborhood. He eventually came over to Barbara's yard to eat her cat's food, and she noticed his distinct markings from his picture on the posters that I had made through the PawBoost app. She immediately called me and said, 'I think I found your cat, Prince!'
When I got off work, I met her at her home and we went into the wooded area on her property. I called his name three times and shook a bag of treats. He meowed, so I kept calling until he appeared. I saw his face and started crying... it was Prince! When he saw me, he dashed over and ate some treats and let me pet him. I waited a while before trying to pick him up since he was being very skittish.
Finally, I grabbed him by the back of his neck. Barbara was ready with a carrier, and so I took him home! He's just as loving as before this ordeal. I believe the posters made through the PawBoost app were directly related to him being found. Barbara told me she remembered the poster photo and his markings and that's what convinced her that it was Prince. Prince was missing for 3 1/2 whole months! He's my Christmas miracle!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Prince’s alert. A special thank you to Barbara for finding this sweet kitty! Prince was missing for more than three long, difficult months before he was finally found and reunited with his mama! Welcome home, Prince!
"One evening, we saw Rocco walking down a busy street by himself. As we approached Rocco, we noticed that he was cold and wet. Rocco appeared scared and guarded at first. However, after some discussion with my wife and son, we decided we would not leave Rocco to face the weather elements. My wife was able to build some trust and carry Rocco safely to our vehicle.
We provided Rocco with food and warm shelter inside our home. My wife and I immediately posted Rocco to PawBoost and requested that our community share the posts. My wife and son returned with Rocco to the place he was found, and walked Rocco in hopes of him finding his home, but no luck.
Almost a day and a half later, my wife received a call inquiring about Rocco. The caller stated that her sister had noticed the post on PawBoost and recognized Rocco. We immediately obtained a few details from the owner, as well as the address, and traveled to reunite Rocco with his family. The family was extremely excited and grateful to be reunited with Rocco.
As per his owner, Rocco enjoys escaping through the fence, as his curiosity gets the best of him. Plans to secure the fencing area were in the works before he made his great escape. PawBoost is great as it not only helps in advocating for our fur babies, but it also brings the community together. One great example - on the reunion day we got to meet Rocco’s owners, but without Rocco or PawBoost, we may have remained strangers! Thank you PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rocco’s alert. Thank you to the amazing family that found him and took great care of him for 2 days before they were able to reunite him with his loving family. Welcome home, Rocco!
"My mom's dog, Buddy, was let out in the backyard at my daughter's house to go to the bathroom. We didn't know that he had found a way to escape under the fence. We looked for him for days, but he was nowhere to be found. After almost a month, I received a text message from this lovely woman on the night of Thanksgiving. She said she thought she had found Buddy! I texted her back and that started the conversation, which led to the reunion of Buddy on the following day. She told me that she found him on PawBoost!
Having a platform to get the message out about lost pets is what brought Buddy back home to my mother. Thank you to all who were looking out for Buddy. Thanks to PawBoost for supplying the platform to get his picture out. Finally, a big thank you to Lauren for getting in contact with me so that I could bring Buddy home to my mom! She is so happy now that he's back home safe."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Buddy’s alert. Buddy was reunited with his mom after 29 long, hard days. Now he is finally back home, curled up in his mom's lap, right where he belongs!
"We think our cat Alex slipped out of the door at some point when we had company and they were leaving. He'd always been curious about the outdoors but had never really been out there before. By sharing pictures, putting up fliers, and just spreading the word that our cat was missing through PawBoost, we got a lot of tips and tricks that really helped!
I had been warming up wet cat food and setting some on the front and back porch twice a day for a few days. We caught the neighbor cat eating it so I didn't put any out the next morning. That night, my husband heard our cat meowing under his car, probably waiting for food! Alex was out roaming for a week before we finally caught him! It was a roller coaster of emotions.
I'd lose hope, then hear from another parent at the bus stop that he thought he saw him hanging out nearby for a couple days, then I'd lose hope again when he said he hadn't seen him. The sightings happened around the time we started setting food out, so he was probably already hanging around our house!
A friend recommended PawBoost and I got a lot of tips and advice from everyone that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise! For some reason fliers didn't even cross my mind before I saw them on PawBoost! Thank you all so much for keeping an eye out for him, sharing posts, and just sending good thoughts our way!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Alex's alert. After one long week, he is finally back home with his loving family who couldn't be happier!
"We were at Resort Park just playing. This dog had been running around and my son tried to make friends. To my son's credit, he followed this dog around for two hours trying to figure out who she belonged to, trying to play, etc. Finally it was getting dark and we had to do something. The dog had run back to the playground where people were, and one mom managed to get it to stay put. I picked it up and brought it to my car.
After visiting Petco, we brought her home, gave her a bath (she had jumped into the pond several times) and fed her. During the evening, I had posted on Nextdoor. A quick google yielded PawBoost so I took a chance. PawBoost fed Facebook and I waited. I checked Facebook first (and I appreciate PawBoost had its own messaging system) and saw the owner had messaged me! Without PawBoost, I'm not sure this situation would have had a happy ending! Within 3-1/2 hours, we had found the owners!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. Thanks so much for this Good Samaritan - and especially his kind son. He spent hours trying to find the owners. They were reunited in a matter of hours!
"We moved to a new house and Hemi, likely exploring her new home, got locked in the neighbor's farm shop that sits near our property boundaries. The farmer got home from his Thanksgiving trip and found Hemi in his shop. He wanted to keep our kitty, but his wife recognized her from the PawBoost alert on Facebook, and she contacted me to bring her home.
Hemi was missing for 2 days and 3 nights. The morning of the 3rd day, we were reunited. PawBoost absolutely works. Pet owners share the posts because they know what it's like to lose a beloved companion, and fellow owners reached out to me with ideas on how to best search for my lost kitty."
Spread the good news! Thank you everyone who shared Hemi's alert! Hemi spent a couple of nights accidentally closed up in a farm shop down the road. A nice old fella returned her home after his wife recognized her from the PawBoost alert. What a happy ending!
