Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"My friend asked me to take care of her dog while she was in NY. I was walking Lorenzo one Tuesday when I saw a white dog roaming on the street and a woman was trying to get him, so I joined her. We tried to catch him but he was scared and tried to bite me twice. Then I realized that he was blind and deaf.
I saw this officer parking 2 houses from my house. I went to tell him about the dog and he went to chase him. Meanwhile, I told my husband and he gave me a leash, (this is not the first time I have found a lost dog) so I drove back where the dog was and with the help of the officer I caught him and brought him to my house.
The police called animal services, but thank God it was closed. So I decided to keep him while I was looking for the owners. I recalled this page from Facebook so I posted a picture of the dog and my information. I received a call days later and the first time I didn't answer because I thought it was a telemarketer. Then my phone rang again and when I answered it was the dog's mom.
I am so happy!! Now I know the dog's name is Yogi and he is at home safe. This page is amazing!! Thanks to PawBoost and the people who shared the post!!"

"I found Ray while taking a walk on New Years Eve at the park by my house. Fireworks were going off and my friends and I were spooked because we saw something moving in the bushes behind us. It was a big animal and we were afraid to approach it. I called for it thinking it could be a dog and she came up to us but was very frightened.
Another firework sounded and she bolted but I called for her again and after a few minutes she came back to us. She did not have a collar on but she was very well behaved even though you could tell she was very scared. After calling out for her owners and looking around for a bit we decided to bring her back to my house.
I took off my coat and tied it around her neck and we walked her back to my house. I have a dog and they got along perfectly, although she was very frightened and it was very late so we just spent some time to calm her down and put her to bed.
The next morning I looked up 'Found Dog San Francisco' and PawBoost came up. I posted on your site and probably 1 minute later someone commented with a post from 3am the night before with a picture of the same dog from her owners who also posted on PawBoost. I found that post and called the owners. They were very excited and picked her up right away!
Turns out she got spooked from the fireworks and got out of her collar and bolted. We were in a very different section of the park from them and she would have crossed several streets to get to us. The owners were very thankful to have her back.
They posted on several different platforms late that night but I was very thankful to have PawBoost, it was quick and easy and we had a lot of other people including vets reach out to us to help. I would recommend to my friends."

"My dad was walking Cashew in the dark when he tripped and fell off the sidewalk into the road. Cashew was scared and bolted off. My dad ended up with two broken ribs, a potentially broken hand, and horrible road rash on his face from the fall. We searched for 6 hours that evening with no luck.
Cashew was found by a neighbor on the same street he was last seen. This neighbor called animal control and when they arrived the officer saw our flyers posted around the neighborhood. The officer called my dad and we were reunited!
PawBoost was incredibly helpful in the search and reunion. Using this service gave me peace of mind that Cashew's information was being shared to as many people as possible. When I called surrounding shelters and police stations, people told me that they had already seen Cashew's flyer and info from PawBoost. I was amazed!!
So many neighbors and people in the community shared the Facebook post from PawBoost and truly helped in spreading the word. So many people were looking out for him which is what ultimately led to our reunion! We are forever grateful.
Do not even hesitate to use this service. Make using PawBoost your number 1 step to locate a lost pet. It is quick, efficient, and the only stress-free part of losing an animal. We felt so comforted knowing that our lost puppy was being seen and shared by so many people. Thank you PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Cashew's alert. A special thank you to Susan with K9 Reunite for assisting with their search and rescue. Flyers work! :)
"Leo snuck out the front door without his collar. PawBoost helped by the production of a flyer and advice to alert the neighborhood vets. My neighbor that found Leo called the vet and I had just delivered the flyer. Thanks so much for getting me organized and getting the word out!!
I would recommend PawBoost because it is a great site and is user friendly to get your lost pet in front of 1000’s of people via social media to be on the lookout. Also, the flyer was an easy tool that got the word out in the neighborhood, face to face. A great two pronged method!!
How nice it is he is home!! He came straight to the dog food and now thinks it’s not so bad!"

"Ginger Blue jumped out of an open window that had a screen that was not secured. For the next 12 days we posted flyers everywhere and searched for her night and day. We used every single tip and suggestion that other PawBoost followers gave us.
The suggestions on PawBoost were to set the litter box by the exit point and keep the garage door cracked and place food, water, her bed, a blanket, and her toys in the garage. Then we scattered her toys or cloth items and went outside often to call for her in a normal voice. We also placed flyers on mailboxes, stores, gas stations, etc... We wanted to make sure all of the neighbors within a five house radius knew Ginger Blue was missing. We did it all!
When I drove up to my mom's home, I stopped and prayed for her safe return. When I lifted my head and opened the car door, Ginger Blue came out from under my mom's car. I called her name and she turned her head. Gingy was scared. She trotted off to the garage. I went to the garage and looked for her, but could not find her. I closed the garage door and went to my mom and told her Ginger Blue is locked in the garage.
My mom, husband, and daughter as well as myself all headed to the garage. My mom called for her and heard a faint meow. My mom found Ginger Blue in the back corner of the garage. The tears of joy began to flow from all of our eyes. Much praise and thanks to our Heavenly Father was said.
Ginger went to the vet for an exam, shots, and lab work. Besides being a touch under weight, she was healthy! Ginger Blue has not left my mom's side. Both are so happy to be back together again. Thank you, thank you PawBoost! Without the help everyone provided I am not sure if we would have found her. There is no words strong enough to recommend PawBoost to anyone who loses a pet or finds a pet."

"Reggie went out for his morning outing in my yard. He usually does that for a half an hour or so after it is fully light and I open his cat door. He did not come home. I went out and he still was not back by late afternoon, very unusual. He was not anywhere I looked! So I checked the animal control listings and then called HomeAgain with whom his microchip is registered.
They prepared to do a complex area sweep of resources and were very responsive. I signed in to my neighborhood association too. Then I remembered a friend used someone to print and hang posters and actually go look for her pet. So I wanted to find a pet searching company to do an intense campaign to look for Reggie. I found PawBoost and was very impressed with your range of offerings and plan to help find Reggie.
Reggie has long enjoyed my neighbor and his yard and goes there to stare at their rabbit in the back yard. They had their garage door open then shut it and went to work. They came home about 7:30 and opened it then Reggie arrived home unhurt but hungry and upset. I’m not sure he was in their garage but probably in some one’s. He has been careful outside for the last 10 years, but this unknown event shook both of us up!
I really appreciate the awesome network of folks helping at PawBoost and have already recommended you to someone from our neighborhood online group who lost her cat. Thank you for what you do! While I was fortunate enough not to need a prolonged search for Reggie, PawBoost gave me a real sense of others helping us and hope that he would be home. Thank you so much!"

"My cousin was washing his car and this dog came up to him. My mother sent me a text message to let me know a little male dog was outside her house. She took him in as she was worried he would get run over by a car. They live in Orlando, FL. She mentioned he was friendly and had no problems getting him in the house.
My cousin's girlfriend was trying to find out from a neighborhood app if anyone was missing a dog. I spoke to my mom and I told her I would find a local Orlando Facebook group for lost pets and post the picture there. This led me to PawBoost. I posted there and used PawBoost as fast as I could. I also commented on the post so others would know I had the info on the pup.
I am in NY and have done volunteer work at a local shelter called Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue. I continued scrolling through the page and didn't see anything posted for the missing dog matching our found pup. Later on, I got a call from a gentleman and he said the lost dog's name was Sammy and it was his aunt's dog.
He had gone through a hole in their fence they hadn't noticed (they just moved to the area). We exchanged information and soon they went to pick him up. They had just posted him on PawBoost as well and he had seen my post and immediately reached out to me.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because this was a very useful tool in reuniting this family and their pet. They were very happy my mom took him in. It all worked out and we are all relieved he is safe and at home at last."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sammy's alert. It's amazing what the power of social media can do to reunite pets with their families :)
"Ava Marie got out of the fence in the backyard because of a faulty latch on the gate. She was gone for 5 nights in the cold and the last place she was sighted was running into the woods about 1 mile from our home. I left food and her blankets/bed outside my front door and by the gate where she escaped. Somehow she was able to find her way home.
I let my other dogs out around 6:00 am and she just walked in like nothing had happened. I have another red dachshund and I was so tired that I thought it was Barlee. Once I realized it was her, I screamed with joy waking up everyone in the house. Tears and happiness followed.
I would recommend PawBoost because the more notification you can get out ASAP, the better chance you have of someone spotting your pet giving you hope and information on where to search and do surveillance."

"One Friday my husband told me he saw an orange and white cat hanging around our house. We came home late Saturday evening and I heard a cat crying. I called for the cat and he ran right over to me and allowed me to pet him and pick him up. I couldn’t leave him outside in the cold so we set him up in a spare bedroom we have.
The next morning I posted on PawBoost and it was instantly shared with other social media sites, which then other people started sharing. Then I started to receive messages that the family of the cat were looking for their baby. Within half a hour the family of Gattino picked him up to take him back home.
If it wasn’t for PawBoost and the instant sharing to other sites I’m afraid this family would not have been reunited with their cat. Their son was in tears, he was so happy to see him. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to keep Gattino safe until we were able to reunite him with his family."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Gattino's alert. A special thank you to the Good Samaritan's who kept him safe :)
"One Sunday we let Nosey out to go to the bathroom and my husband followed not even 5 minutes later when he had finished eating. He came back inside a few minutes later saying he couldn't find her.
I signed into Facebook about 7 weeks later to write an update about her still missing, when my news feed came up the first thing I saw was a PawBoost post of Nosey. The post said she had been found after 3 weeks missing and that they wanted to find her family.
I got so excited, I immediately got the finder's information and sent them an email explaining how I believed that they had my dog. I was going to wait for a reply to the email but then I saw a phone number so I sent a text to the number and a little bit later they responded.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost not only to friends and family but also to any person that has a pet that could possibly escape them. I would recommend PawBoost because they help spread the word about missing and found pets and they do their best to check in every so often with the owners of missing pets to see if the pet has returned."

"Joe Willy was gone for 8 nights and it rained for at least 6 or 7 of those nights. I used the Havahart trap and put litter next to the trap and his favorite food inside the trap. His trap was wrapped and lined with his favorite towels he plays and sleeps with. I set the trap at about 4pm and checked every few hours. I came home at midnight after picking up my daughter from the airport and Joe Willy was in the trap! Mad! But safe.
PawBoost is definitely the place to go when you lose a pet! The PawBoost network of support and advice from other animal lover friends, vets and technicians is beyond amazing! Especially for something as emotional as losing a pet who has become a part of your family. Joe Willy is home and safe because of PawBoost and their magnificent network. I'm so happy I can't sleep. Of course, Joe Willy is fast asleep and safe INSIDE my house.
Thank you PawBoost, Babs and all of our animal lover friends who encouraged me not to give up hope and offered very valuable advice on finding my lost little boy. Hugs to all of you!"

"Diamond was found pawing at the front door of my neighbor. At first we were a little cautious as she was a Pit. Come to find out she is a sweet lovable pup. She came right up to us, tail wagging. We first walked the neighborhood trying to find the owner. She had tags, however it was late on a Friday night and the Animal Control office was closed. Contacted the Sheriff and left a message.
My wife then posted on PawBoost about the find and included a picture. We were able to bring her into our home, feed her and she snuggled in for the night. After many shares by concerned readers we received a call on Saturday morning from Justin stating he was the owner and had been looking for her.
After providing sufficient information and proof that Diamond was in fact his we were able to reunite Diamond and Justin. I don't know who was more happier to have her home, Diamond or Justin. Thank you to the many people who took the time to share the post that reunited these two!"

"I was in the car with my friend Therese when I spotted this beautiful well-groomed corgi grazing in someone's front yard. There was a family outside so we assumed the dog was theirs, but they asserted that they had never seen him before. It was surprisingly easy to catch him. I went up to him and let him sniff me, then I stroked his fur a few times, then I gently put my hand under his belly to pick him up, and Therese opened the car door for us.
We checked around Division St and the street parallel to it but neighbors either had never seen him or saw him running around earlier that day. We took him to the vet, who directed us to an animal shelter. The second shelter we went to took him after we waited in a long line.
Two of my friends recommended to me a website called PawBoost. I decided to make a profile, which was quite simple and within hours I received a text with a picture of the dog I found and a thank you message from his owner. The owner was able to pick him up!
I absolutely would recommend PawBoost and already have to several people. PawBoost is nothing short of a godsend. Keep doing the good work."

"Luna went missing for about 2 and a half months. She is an indoor cat. We have a theory that she snuck out the front door without us realizing or she got out from the patio. I live in an apartment complex and put signs everywhere hoping a neighbor would spot her.
Luna and I were reunited at my apartment complex. This awesome couple kept seeing her around and decided to put a live trap and catch her. One night they caught her and my neighbor actually found my phone number on PawBoost. Sure thing the next morning I was picking her up and it was her. We are in shock!
We looked for her around the complex for weeks and could not find her. We finally thought someone had probably taken her in, but she was still around. I had friends recommend PawBoost to me and I would too. I think a lot of animal lovers are aware of PawBoost and check it every so often. I would get an email every other week asking if she was still missing and it would prompt her back up on the list of lost fur babies."

"A friend of ours passed away and left three cats behind. We have been helping his father by finding a home for all three cats. In the meantime, the people that painted the room left the door open to air out the house and that's when Sweetpea ran off.
We drove to the house to look for her as soon as we heard she went missing. Luckily we saw her hiding underneath the shed in the backyard and tried luring her close to us by feeding her can food. We then decided to set up a cat trap the next day. A few people made recommendations on how we can catch her in the cat trap we set up. The recommendations included catnip, cat litter near the patio, etc...
We highly recommend PawBoost because our missing post was shared all over Facebook. So many people shared, responded to the post, gave us tips on how to catch her, and stayed in touch. Thank you so much!!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Sweetpea's alert. She is now home safe with her fur-ever family :)
"The dog was found in the parking lot of a business near a residential area. He came right up to people and was very friendly. It was cold and rainy so my boyfriend picked up the dog to see the tag and immediately called the number, which unfortunately was a disconnected number. Not wanting to leave him on the road he put the dog in the truck and brought him home to me where we quickly checked online and found PawBoost.
We created several listings on local groups as well as PawBoost. We decided to keep the pup with us while we did more research to find his home. After a few emails and phone calls from others interested in seeing the dog we finally found his family almost a week later. We were able to confirm location as well as the number which had been listed on the tag. The family had found us via PawBoost.
It was a bittersweet reunion, as we had fallen in love with our new guest, but we were so happy to bring him home and see the relief and tears from his family. As animal lovers, we know how devastating losing a family member can be. We are grateful for your service and that we could keep him safe while waiting to connect with his family. We’ll never forget him and we’re happy to have been of service."

"Our front door was left open by accident so Josie wandered outside. We plastered flyers and online posts everywhere, including on PawBoost. After 4 nights, my next door neighbor texted me a picture of a cat in her backyard sitting on her playground. My husband and I rushed over there and saw that it was in fact Josie. She was scared and ran into my neighbor’s outside building. It took a few minutes but we were finally able to get her. We woke up my daughter with the surprise of having Josie back. She was SO happy!
Thanks to PawBoost I was given a lot of encouragement and emails that gave us some great tips, including that strictly indoor cats usually only go as far as 3-5 houses away from their home because they are scared and unfamiliar with the outside. It not only gave me hope that Josie was close by, but it was true! Josie was found 1 house over from ours. Thank you PawBoost!"

"UPS was making a delivery to our home and Joe went out the front door to meet the driver in the driveway. Unfortunately, he left the door open (with storm door closed) and a stray dog was nearby in the woods. Chapo and Blackjack saw the stray, unlatched/opened the storm door and darted after him into the woods. We believe they chased him so far until they eventually were lost and unable to find their way back.
We posted flyers all over town at stop signs and stores. Someone spotted Chapo after 13 DAYS and called us. We were already out riding around looking for him and were 4 minutes away from the area. He was 4.8 miles away from home....OMG! We drove to the dropped pin the man sent us and just yelled for him for about 20 minutes and Chapo emerged from the woods like a little angel. He was uncertain it was us for about 30-45 seconds and then took off in a mad dash toward us.
PawBoost helped by spreading the word to locals. We had already made flyers by the time we posted him on PawBoost but we did post a few of the ones generated by PawBoost. We would definitely recommend the PawBoost because many shelters pull info from the site."

"Peaches was headed to a vet visit when her carrier broke open outside of the vet's office. Unfortunately, this happened in a very busy shopping center. She ran as fast as she could and was hiding in numerous bushes along a busy road. To top it off, it was a cold and rainy morning. Peaches is an indoor only kitty who was extremely frightened.
We set up a humane trap with cat food and set it for 5 days. We went day and night searching for her, calling for her, crawling in bushes with flashlights and setting out sardines. PawBoost was very helpful. After the first day of searching for hours we felt very hopeless. My mom wanted to give up so I decided to post the PawBoost alert.
Soon after posting, PawBoost sent me an email containing helpful tips on how to reunite with your pet. It gave us so many helpful ideas and gave us the drive to continue with our search. We learned that when indoor only cats get lost they usually hide and don't move. We also learned that indoor only cats won't travel too far. Thankfully we took this advice and we set her trap right where she was last seen. After 5 days she was finally caught. Such a relief!
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend. It's a great resource to get your pet's info out and they send such great tips on how to find your pet."

"Minnie went missing one Saturday. My boyfriend and I had just gotten back from seeing Christmas lights and getting hot chocolate. I sat down, and I felt like I heard a slight 'meow.' Then I realized I hadn't seen Minnie all day, and she's usually my shadow. We searched the entire house and she was nowhere. We think she may have snuck out a door or when we had a window open for a few seconds (no screen) to clear out smoke from dinner.
Thanks to PawBoost, we had an amazing poster created that thousands of people saw. I shared the post from PawBoost onto my community housing's Facebook page. Around 10:30 pm, a lady called me and said she just recently saw paws and a tiny face run from her garage. She had seen this cat all day and had been feeding it. She saw the PawBoost post a little before the instance.
I immediately ran outside and searched. I found her a few roads down. I called for her and she was scared, tail fluffed and hesitant. When she realized it was me, she ran right up into my arms. She was extremely wet, shedding, and cold. That was only with being gone 24 or so hours so I can't imagine if it were longer.
That being said, I would 100% completely recommend PawBoost to a friend! You never know who is going to share, see, and be on the lookout. All of the tips, the wishes, and the support make you feel even more determined to bring your baby back home. I couldn't be more grateful for the support and help I received.
The picture is of my youngest son (4) and Minnie. He took her running away the hardest and as you can see, he intends to never let her go again."

"Sugar Bear saw a deer as we were going out the back door. She jerked the leash from my hand and dashed down the street and was out of sight in the blink of an eye. We all immediately jumped in the car and began canvassing the neighborhood and surrounding areas. Sugar Bear was spotted by many helpful people who were taking walks at that time.
The sun was going down and we began to panic. We posted our missing message on two social media platforms but we knew we needed to reach more people and quickly. PawBoost popped up as a top site for helping reunite pets and owners so we pulled the car over and filled out everything on the side of the road.
We were encouraged with the number of clicks and shares that Sugar Bear's post was getting and we kept searching. 24 hours later, many miles on foot and a few more sightings, someone was able to get close enough to Sugar Bear to snag her leash. My husband began walking the area she was last seen and a man asked, 'Are you looking for a boxer puppy?' And it became the beginning of our happy ending!
We did not ask the man how he knew about Sugar Bear, we were so overwhelmed with emotion in the moment. We have to believe that it had to be through social media or PawBoost because no posters had been hung up yet. Everyone we encountered asked how they could get in touch with us if they saw her, we gave our numbers and told them to look on PawBoost to report anything.
We are so happy Sugar Bear is home. Thank you again!"

"Maisy was outside in the fenced yard. I left and she must’ve gotten anxious. She managed to loosen a board and get out. A wonderful resident in the subdivision saw the post and signs. She replied that she’d seen a yellow dog run past her yard and into the woods close by. We went searching and after about 30 minutes we were close to giving up, but then I heard a bark.
I ran into someone’s yard and kept calling for her. We could see her about 15 feet back pacing. Everyone backed up and I sat down and called her gently. She came bursting out and danced her doggy dance! The PawBoost alert and lists of things to do were so helpful. Everyone shared it and this is what the neighbor saw."

"It was night and I didn't see that my sister left my gate unlatched. I went to let my fur babies in and one came inside. I immediately called for my other two and only came but from OUTSIDE the fence. My heart sank. We immediately began looking for Maggie.
I followed PawBoost's suggestions and posted everywhere I could, called animal shelters and my vet and used your posting to figure out additional ways to find her. I was absolutely crushed beyond distraught. I was very fortunate a person from my area was driving to her farmstead about 5-6 miles from my house and just happened to see her on a dirt road.
They tried to get her and she was so frightened that she jumped into the river. Our neck of woods the river bridges are just wood, no barriers. Her son went in after her. They were able to get her after her fighting them. They were shocked to see her and figured she had been dumped but then they saw the collar and tag.
She started the journey with 3 tags. Her personalized tag and city tag fell off so the only remaining one was her vet tag. Thank God they called the vet who called me. I am so darn thankful. I would recommend PawBoost because it reaches more people than you can on your own. It also gave me some comfort knowing that her alert looked different than some of the others posted on Facebook.
She was gone 20+ hrs. In less than 4 hrs her seizure meds would have worn off. To have her home safe will never be taken for granted!"

"Vivi was with my husband in a friend’s backyard, playing with other dogs. Something spooked her and she escaped the yard through a doggie door in the garage and then out the garage into an alleyway. This was not a familiar neighborhood to her so we had no idea where she could have gone. We posted about her on every social media platform we could think of, registered her as missing on sites such as PawBoost, and posted flyers in multiple neighborhoods.
Nearly 72hrs later, thanks to neighbors and strangers posting about sightings of her, we received a call that she’d been spotted on a golf course near our old home. This stranger stayed there with our dog in his line of sight until we were able to get there and were reunited. We hadn’t lived there in nearly 2 years but it was clearly a familiar/safe place to her. Truly a miracle!
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost. The more ways to get information out about a missing pet, the more likely someone will see the notice and keep a lookout in their travels. One person’s post on PawBoost about a sighting of our dog helped us narrow our search area! The happy ending could have been delayed further without that information."

"He was running in the road when we spotted him, he almost got run over but luckily the other driver saw and slowed for him. My husband was driving and we had our two fur kids out for a ride. I jumped out of the car with a leash and about that time he had made it from the road over into a yard to relieve himself and I was able to drape it around his neck.
We walked to several nearby houses and none of them recognized him. We ended up taking him over to my mom and dad’s house which was close by. You see because we had our two dogs in the car I had to walk him over there. We took a picture of him and then let them hang out in the garage while we posted the info on PawBoost.
Our plan was to bring our two fur kids home, drop them off and go back and take him in to scan for a chip. However once we posted the information it went out to a Facebook group where luckily in a very short timeframe the owner had checked to see if anybody found him. So we connected very quickly and were able to get him home in less than an hour from the time he had escaped!
What a happy ending! Bubba is lucky twice because the owners had just adopted him from a local shelter. Of course he did have a microchip and we would have been able to reunite them that way but PawBoost turned out to be much quicker! The power of social media is amazing and is as good as it is bad sometimes. Keep up the great work PawBoost. For fur kiddos like Bubba, it can literally mean life or death."

"The dog (found out later that her name is Chance) walked by our house just after we returned from the store. She looked lost so I followed her as she crossed a major street and traffic stopped as she stood in the middle of the road confused. After the traffic slowly passed, I was able to follow her and walk up to her. She shyly let me approach her and I was able to use my belt as a leash and walked her to our home.
I posted on PawBoost/Facebook, Nextdoor and Ring. The owner was informed by a friend to look on these sites and found her the next day, after I had taken her to our vet to have her checked for a chip (she had no chip). They were going to contact the animal care center, but I was contacted in time so the owner could pick up Chance at our vet.
There are a number of ways to post for a lost or found dog and you never know which one(s) might be used by the owners/finders so please use them all. PawBoost has a great reputation for reunifications! I was also able to use it to make posters which we ended up not needing to post, but that was our next step.

"Gracie went missing around 5pm one Thursday from the backyard. We have three small yorkies and I never let them outside without me, I was standing in the backyard with them. I yelled for everyone to come in and two came, but Gracie didn’t. I ran to the other end and I felt my heart drop. She had to have snuck through the tiniest of holes under our gate!! I was petrified.
It was amazing how fast she was up and shared all over the internet. The most important thing is do everything you can and don’t give up!! We posted on neighborhood apps and spent 20 plus hours hanging up flyers everywhere and going door to door!
Finally Sunday night around 5pm we get a call that someone saw our flyers and they had our Gracie. They had her since Thursday night and kept her safe! They weren’t aware of microchips so they were looking for a sign that someone was looking for her. They didn’t want to take her to the pound in case something bad happened.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost for anyone that is looking or found a fur baby. Do everything you can and be persistent. The family said that it was one of the last flyers that we hung up Sunday evening that they saw that brought out baby home. I will make sure to repay the favor if anyone is ever in need and I want to thank everyone that helped and said prayers for us and our baby Gracie!!"

"We found the dog in our yard when we stepped outside to smoke. He was very friendly and cold and he approached us with no other information than a rabies vaccination tag. He was willing to follow us into the garage after we gave him some food.
PawBoost was the reason we were able to find his owners. The alert was shared to the state's missing pets Facebook page, which the owners looked at to see if he'd been found. They were then able to contact us and bring their pet home.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost to anyone who has lost or found a pet. Instead of worrying and having to wait until the vet office opening on Monday, they were able to bring their family member home after only a few hours of worry and searching.
Thank you to everyone who runs this service. As a pet owner, I know I would want my pet back home as soon as possible. PawBoost made that possible for a worried family, and got a retired police dog back to his people."

"Trinity must have slipped out the door when someone in the house went out. I noticed the next afternoon that she never came out for her breakfast which she would never miss willingly!
Due to the Facebook post from PawBoost a woman that works with local volunteers got in touch with me almost immediately after the post went up. She gave me some tips about placing her bedding and litter box outside along with food and water. She was sitting on the doorstep when my boyfriend came home from work.
It worked within a couple hours! If it weren’t for the post from PawBoost I wouldn’t have gotten so much support and in turn more people shared the PawBoost post in local lost pet Facebook pages. Trinity's post was shared by others locally three times more than my personal post was.
It got me in contact with local volunteers who were willing to help and it was a force of comfort because the email updates when anyone commented on the post kept me informed. It simplified the process for me during a hectic time. Now she’s cozy on the warm couch and not in the freezing temperatures outside!"

"Our 8 year old cat Maggie is an inside only pet and got out. I saw her scratching her back on the pavers and when I looked for her again, she was gone! We searched the neighborhood, open garages, left signs out, called vets, and went to animal shelters to no avail.
Fast forward 11 days. My neighbors, who are renovating their house down to the studs, called to say they found Maggie! She had been hiding all that time under the floorboards and downstairs ceiling. She was living in open drains in their unfinished bathroom. We think she may have gotten water from the toilet, but no food.
Terrified, she would not come out, and we couldn't reach her. I volunteer for the cat rescue, Saving One Life and they gave me a trap to use. We left it there with food and voila! She was caught! Skinny and dehydrated so I took her to the vet.
She is so happy to be home and resting off her ordeal. We are so lucky to have such a compassionate community and thank you for your help."

"Onyx went missing because the door opened and she zipped out without anyone noticing. She had been missing for two days, 18 hours passed before I even noticed and started looking because she’s normally so quiet it never occurred to me that my best friend and support animal was missing.
I went out often, every twenty to twenty five minutes with tuna and her litter, but it all seemed like nothing would do because she has always been an indoor cat. She had never ran or tried to get out and even though she has all her claws and shots we have a raccoon around and they can be pretty vicious. Every time I went out I went home in tears, which isn’t great when looking for a distressed animal, to smell distressed yourself.
Finally I had to take a nap, and when I woke up I felt determined to wait outside until she came home. So with my laptop, my tea and a blanket I huddled up in the cold and started doing my homework. The tapping of the keys must have sounded familiar and she came out from the brush looking cold and annoyed but uninjured. I thought I was going to cry. I did cry when she came right over and flopped next to me and started purring. This is the first time that my workaholic tendencies have ever rescued someone I care about!
PawBoost gave me a sense that I was able to do something productive even though I was a sobbing mess and missing an animal who has become more dear to me than my own two arms. I’d recommend PawBoost solely for the reassurance it gave me, and the amount of shares she got put me at ease."

"On Sunday evening Remy and his brother went out. This is usual for them, they roam our small neighborhood and come back home frequently. They stayed out later than usual that night and I was worried because the next morning was trash day and the garbage trucks scare them.
Jerry ended up coming home without Remy, which never happens. Immediately I was worried. The next morning he still wasn't home, I reached out to our local animal shelters and found PawBoost on Facebook. I filled out the missing pet alert and used the PawBoost poster to put up around my neighborhood.
One of my neighbors had been hearing an animal sound but he thought it was his neighbor's dog, or someone walking their pet nearby. He couldn't see Remy on the roof from the ground and not until that morning did he see him stuck on his roof. He immediately got my phone number from the missing posters I put up and called me. I was able to get my ladder over to his house and as soon as he heard my voice he started yowling and crying. Rescue was simple and he was soon back home with his brother!
I really found the suggestions for what to do when your pet is lost that was emailed to me helpful. The missing poster was fast to generate and print off and I was able to quickly put them up around my neighborhood. And I got a lot of hope from the success stories."

"Mav and our other pup went missing at 6pm one Sunday. We looked everywhere through the night until the other pup showed up at 2am, but no Maverick. The next day was spent canvassing the neighborhood, visiting shelters, putting up posters, posting on community groups, and what turned out to be the most crucial step, adding his profile to PawBoost.
On Tuesday I received a message from your site letting me know of a possible match. After contacting the gentleman who posted the found alert my baby was returned to me! I had no idea about PawBoost prior to this ordeal, but I will now be sharing it’s success everywhere. Thank you PawBoost! We are overjoyed!"

"Our fence was accidentally left open and I didn't realize Coco was outside. My granddoodles had just arrived and we were spreading hello hugs and kisses.
PawBoost was helpful because it allowed an instant outlet to share, and then, of course, to be shared again and again. It also opened up communication from others with suggestions as well as other tools to help locate Coco. There was much searching going on throughout the night, and then early the next morning.
Ultimately someone in the area picked him up and took care of him for the night. Due to plans they had, they then passed him to another kind angel who was driving around the area, spreading the word the same time I was! I stopped a man running, who had minutes previous spoken to the lady who had Coco and was searching for me (the owner).
He indicated the area where she was driving around, and minutes later we found each other on the road. I would most definitely recommend PawBoost to any family with fur members! It is a well known site with multiple outlets as well as one that is viewed often by caring humans. Thank you for being a readily available, user friendly, and very visible outlet!"

"Bella loves going out on the balcony and spy on everyone that walks by! She also loves walking on the edge of the balcony just because. So that night I suspect that she tripped and fell off the balcony. We didn’t realize until later when I went outside to check on her! She came back home by herself after approximately 6-7 hours!
PawBoost made it easier for us to put an alert out there and because of that lots of people reached out with helpful tips. We followed all the tips and suggestions. We opened all of the doors, put her litter outside, put food and treats in front of the entrances, but the tip I believe was the one that made her return was to go outside with her favorite treats around 2am when the neighborhood sleeps and shake the box softly. She came back home less than 5 minutes after that!
I definitely recommend PawBoost! It’s super easy to set up and that’s important in a situation like this. There is a big community behind it with people that will send you tips, love and support and it’s a fast way to get the word out. She definitely won the Christmas gift of the year award."

"My friend was helping me move out of my old apartment and I asked my friend to drive so we switched seats. Beau was in the backseat and then suddenly he wasn't and it was literally like he had vanished.
PawBoost helped immensely. A nice man named Chris actually picked Beau up not far from where he was lost and knew he had to help so he went home and was able to see the posts and got in contact with me. He was even nice enough to take a few photos of the raw moment. I'll always be thankful for PawBoost and Chris for helping me find my best friend.
I never thought I'd see my pet again and he's my world. I had comments and shares on Facebook but not as many as I'd like. With PawBoost's following and sponsored ads I really think it was more than worth doing and I plan on telling every person I know who has a pet about this community and how dedicated they are to reuniting fur babies with their families."
