Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"Checkers got out on the third of July and was spooked by early fireworks. A nearby neighbor saw him, and he played with her and some neighbors on the evening of the 4th. She knew he must be a missing cat so she went to PawBoost to see if there was anything on him.
She called me the next day to tell me she’d seen him, and while he wasn’t there with her, she felt he might come back. He came back on the evening of the 6th and she called me and I was able to go pick him up. PawBoost is very recognized and public in our area. Now that I know about it, it is the first place I will look when I see a lost animal."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Checkers' alert. All of the calls and messages and the advice and tips - the care and concern, all of it - were so very much appreciated by his family. After what felt like a lifetime and a Herculean effort from the town, Checkers is home.
"Shelby went missing from home. She had never roamed where she was gone for hours. We searched every day for her. There was one dirt road we had gone up and down several times. The road had no homes on it and had a gate at the dead end. One day, we met a man who was leaving the property and told us he had seen a Pyrenees dog on the land. I was able to speak to the homeowner and left my phone number.
A few days later, I received a call from the homeowner stating that they had our dog! As we arrived, the man was in the middle of the road with a dog. We stopped the truck and before I could even get out, Shelby had run up to our truck and jumped in the driver's seat when my husband got out. I couldn’t believe she had been so far from home. I am so happy to have our baby girl home!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Shelby's alert. A big thank you to the gentleman who found Shelby and called her owners. Shelby was gone for 7 days and is now home safe and sound.
"These two lovely dogs came running down a street near our home. When I stopped my car, they came right over to me...and hopped right in! It was clear that they had a family but had just gotten themselves lost. They were both VERY dirty and thirsty, and eager to be back with human companionship.
We brought them home, hosed off the mud, gave them food and water and put them in our fenced back yard and basement - to keep them separated from our own rescue dogs in the house. They settled right in. We posted an alert on PawBoost and we also listed a photo with both dogs with all the local community services - Nextdoor, the Facebook pages for lost pets, etc.
It was such a random chance...a woman read both the PawBoost listing AND a lost listing from the owner on another page and said to herself...'Hey, I think these are the same dogs I just saw on PawBoost.' Good for her! It took two days to find the owner. Once we contacted him, he came to pick up his dogs right away. Nice guy - and he gave me a donation for local dog rescue, in gratitude for taking care of his dogs.
PawBoost has a great readership and you can target the local area, with high level of penetration. I think if you find a dog you should post everywhere - but PawBoost is on the top of that list."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared these lost dogs' alert. Thanks to the woman who saw the lost and the found posts and made the connection. And a big thank you to the Good Samaritan who took such good care of these sweet pups. They are happy to be home!
"Patches snuck out the door one night and we didn't notice till the next morning he was missing. He is an indoor cat who always tried to run outdoor. But we would always get him back in and say, 'YOU'RE AN INDOOR KITTY!'
After many devastating calls from my missing posters, I got a call 19 days later from someone over 5 blocks away. They said they had been noticing fur, cat prints and cat pee and poop in their garage. I went over and looked and I couldn't find him.
So we set up humane traps in and outside the garage. The next morning she texted me and he was in the trap! It was one of the best days of my life getting him back.
The more people you can reach, the better. Use every Facebook page you can. Contact all shelters and vets you can. Use PawBoost, put up posters, knock on doors. Never give up!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Patches' alert and kept their eyes open for him. A big thanks to the folks who noticed cat fur in their garage and the neighbor with the trap that helped catch him. Patches was in a garage over 5 blocks away - and now is home safe and sound.
"Cleo is an inside/outside cat and she was missing for ten days. Our house leads down to the railroad tracks and we think that she was chased or scared into a wooded area by a dog or a larger animal and was afraid to come back home.
We found Cleo after walking around some of the neighborhoods surrounding ours. We happened to pass some ladies and their kids working on something in a garage or storage area across the bridge from where we live. It turns out that they actually live down the block from us. Based on her photo, she said that they had seen Cleo under their car and that she had run towards the railroad tracks at the end of our neighborhood.
Based on the location they gave us, we are able to search a wooded area that is not possible to search at night. I went back to the area a few hours later with canned cat food and found Cleo at the edge of the wooded area by the railroad tracks. She was scared, meowing, skinnier than usual and dusty.
We are so grateful to all the friends, neighbors and kind strangers who helped us get Cleo back home again. PawBoost helped me report Cleo missing and provided me with support."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Cleo's alert and helped look for Cleo. Everyone on the internet sites and Facebook pages, friends, neighbors and kind strangers. Her owners are so grateful that Cleo is back home and they appreciate all the help so much.
"We found Minnie on the 3rd of July around 10:30pm. She was scared from the fireworks, and she didn’t look like a stray so we took her in. I posted on a Facebook neighborhood site and someone recommended PawBoost. Within an hour, someone pointed me to Minnie's owner's post about her being missing. I called her Minnie and she answered to it. The owner had been searching for four days.
I am a dog owner and if my dog ever got lost, I would be devastated. PawBoost proved itself to be a great help for lost dogs, pet parents and Good Samaritans. Thanks to everyone!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who recommended PawBoost and shared Minnie's alert. Thanks to this Good Samaritan who found Minnie and took care of her, taking the time to find her owners. She is now home safe.
"Marley loves to chase squirrels. When she bolted towards a squirrel, she jerked her leash out of my hand. The sound of the plastic handle hitting the concrete frightened her; she thought she was being chased. She's a very fast dog and I am not a very fast person. She was out of sight in the blink of an eye.
The PawBoost alert notified a broader range of people in the community. PawBoost, my Facebook posts (and shares by friends and family), and flyers created a community-wide search. The area where I found Marley the next morning had been searched previously, but not completely. She had wrapped her leash around a tree obscured by a fenced, abandoned tennis court. The wooded area was not visible from any homes either.
I felt drawn to the area multiple times over the course of the day. I even visited that area after dark and came within feet of finding her on Friday night. The next morning, after cruising the nearby neighborhoods with no results, I stopped at the tennis courts on a whim.
A neighbor there stopped me and said she hadn't seen any dogs running through. I turned to leave, but felt compelled to search behind the tennis courts. And there she was. Scared, tired, thirsty and hungry - but safe. We are very grateful to have found her because she most certainly would have died there. Needless to say, she's gotten lots of lap time, treats, and loving.
I appreciate the broad exposure PawBoost offered. I'm especially grateful that PawBoost immediately made us aware of potential scams. We were notified by text that afternoon that our dog had been found. All we had to do to verify we were the owners was use a code provided by text. Had we not known about the scam, we would have jumped on the chance to get her back. So we truly appreciated the information."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Marley’s alert and offered support and assistance. This family is so grateful to have their sweet pup back home safe.
"Zoro got out early one morning when the back door was opened for a split second to let the dog out to pee. Being that it was still dark out, he slipped away unnoticed. It wasn't till a few hours later that we noticed he was gone. It was a long search. We set up the PawBoost alert and put up posters.
Three days later, he just returned to our back door. I'm guessing someone saw all the posts and knew to let him out. They set Zoro free when they became aware that people knew of his disappearance. PawBoost definitely helped by spreading the word.
Please if you find a cat, try to find the owners, as our pets are family. They are missed by grown adults and children left with broken hearts. We are so happy he is home and safe. He's very meowy right now and won't leave our side, like he's telling us what happened. Bless all you that took the time to help."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Zoro's alert and helped get the word out that he was missing. His family truly appreciates all the help. He was gone for three days and is now home safe.
"I was out of town. My husband says he went to bed around 10pm Friday night and knows he saw Delilah at that time. It is usual for him to leave them out. We have three dogs in total. I was coming home that night, so I was OK with them staying out until I got home. Normally I ask him to lock them up in the kitchen when he goes to bed. When I got home around 3am, she was not there but the other two were.
My 10-year-old daughter and I had just set out to walk our neighborhood and pass out flyers. We were about four doors down when I saw her sniffing her way and running home. I called her name and she ran so fast to me while crying the whole way! She jumped into my arms still crying and panting. I want to cry just typing it. I had my daughter snap this picture. This is an answer 'yes' to my prayers! Thank you God!
I feel that PawBoost really helps connect you with people local to you. PawBoost helps you find the pet shelters near you and gave me comfort to know I was doing something to help."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Delilah's alert. Thanks to everyone who was rooting for her and sending supportive messages. Delilah was gone for two days. She is so happy to be home now - and her family is so relieved and grateful.
"Chance ran off scared from all the lightning and thunderstorms one evening. We weren’t home at the time, so we had no idea which direction he had run off to. After spending two days driving around looking for him, calling local shelters, and finally posting on PawBoost, our dog was found! A neighbor down the road saw the PawBoost posting and quickly reached out to us! We were so grateful our dog Chance was safe!
When he was delivered to our home by a kind gentleman, Chance immediately recognized us and ran to us! It was such a sweet reunion moment! The person that found our dog saw a posting on PawBoost after calling the local Humane Society and contacted us. The support of the PawBoost community was great. I was amazed at how many strangers were willing to share and offer their prayers of support."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Chance's alert. And thanks to the kind gentleman who found him, searched for his owners, and delivered him to his home. His family feels so blessed to have him back home safe.
"This beautiful boy started coming around our backyard for snacks and seemingly adopted us as his second family. My wife came in one morning after her daily coffee run, and this dude strutted right in our front door as if he'd lived here for years.
I came across PawBoost when I was looking for a good place to post to about a found cat. Luckily, there had been an alert on a local lost pet search page. Someone recognized the cat from this post and now he is back with his family! It took about a week to find his owners. PawBoost was unbelievably helpful in finding this cat's owner."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet kitty's alert. Thanks to this kind couple who cared for him as they tried to find his family. Thanks to everyone's help, he's now home safe and sound.
"It was my fault she was outside. Orly was on the patio. She usually stays there, but she has been very interested in the crows that come around, so maybe she left the patio to follow one of them. PawBoost is how Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue (Vokra) found me. The day I posted Orly's lost poster on PawBoost, Karen at Vokra reached out.
They had picked her up pretty much the same day she went missing. She was sleeping under a neighbour's barbecue. Orly was missing for 9 days. We walked the neighbourhood calling for her and shaking treats every day - and we thought we had posted her picture and lost poster to social media - but that turned out to be a scam.
It was only when we posted to PawBoost that other people started to engage - and we were finally reunited. Thank you PawBoost! I plan to share the information on how we were reunited with all my colleagues at work - and all my friends. It's so stressful to not know where your loved pet is, and if they are hurt or scared.
As it turns out, Orly was in a lovely air conditioned place, in the hottest days of the year, being cared for by lovely people. Lucky Orly - and luckier us that they are so dedicated to reuniting people with their lost pets."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Orly's alert. And thanks to Karen at Vokra for her efforts in finding Orly's family and for taking such good care of her in the meantime. She is now home safe with her grateful family.
"These two dogs were very large but were friendly. We knew right away they had owners. They did not like the car ride home to our house and were very rambunctious! We watched them for the rest of the day and fed them, so they were very happy.
PawBoost was a lifesaver for both us and the owners! We had called the animal shelter and notified authorities as well, with no success. Within 30 minutes, PawBoost had got our info on Facebook. I immediately started getting notifications from people who knew these dogs and their owners!
I’m not sure how long they had been searching, but we got the dogs in the morning and by 3:30 that afternoon, the owners were in our driveway ready to pick them up! I will definitely be using PawBoost if this ever happens again!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared the alert of these sweet boys - and to the nice couple who found them. Their owners were found within minutes and they were home later the same day.
"We had just moved to the area and had been in our new house for four days. We thought we could let our cats venture out since they had been cooped up for weeks during the sale of our previous home, then an Airbnb, and then the move/drive to Tennessee. The other cats stayed close but he just took off.
By the grace of God, Skipper showed up on our back porch after eight long days. PawBoost was helpful in that they gave me much encouragement and many tips on finding a lost cat. They got me in touch with a large community of people who care about lost and found animals.
It was comforting to know I was doing all I could to find him. I would advise anyone in a similar situation to get in touch with a community of people and a company that will share your photos and information to the local people around the area. Especially since I was brand new to the area, and didn’t know a soul, they were most helpful."
Spread the good news! Thank you everyone who shared Skipper's post and gave great advice on searching for him and helping him find his way home. Because that's what he did! He just showed up eight days later! His family is so thankful for this community of people who care.
"Gin managed to open a LOCKED window at 3am and jump out on to the roof of a busy high street in central London. He disappeared for 16 nerve-wracking days. On another lonely night, I went on to our roof terrace and noticed something moving on a neighboring roof. It was dark, so I took a picture with the flash on.
Zooming in, I realised it's Gin!!! So I grabbed his favourite treats and shook them. Gin ran across all the roofs and into our apartment. Gin's missing poster was widely shared and I got a lot of help from the PawBoost community. The posts were clear and noticeable. And I appreciated the email updates with all activities."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Gin's alert. Gin was reunited with his family after four days and 20 hours. He got home safely jumping from roof to roof. Never give up hope!
"I live in an apartment complex that has a doggy park. I was in the park with my dog and she was showing a lot of interest with something in a large water runoff canal located in the park. I walked over and saw a confused little Chihuahua that was obviously very senior. She appeared to be blind and deaf, but looked chunky and well taken care of.
I got a towel, climbed in the canal, wrapped her up, and set her on the ground. I comforted her and gave her water. We asked a very kind lady if she could stay at her house overnight and she agreed. I posted a found alert on PawBoost. The people responding to my alert were so kind. They advised me to post on some other sites, too.
One of the people that saw my ad also saw the owner's ad on another site. She messaged him. He messaged me and they were reunited. I also printed and hung the flyers PawBoost made for me. PawBoost made this possible by allowing people to post on their site. This site also posts to Facebook and it totally got total strangers together to reunite a beloved pet...family.
I found the dog about 8pm that night and by a little after 11:00 am the next day, she was back with her person. He had actually messaged at 10:43 but I didn't see the message until about 11. He was searching since the day before. I don't know if the outcome would have been the same without PawBoost. I was so worried that she would not be reunited. Never did I dream it would be in less than 24 hours!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet senior dog's alert. Thanks so much to this Good Samaritan who found her and to the neighbor who took care of her overnight. And to everyone who helped throughout the process. She was home in less than 24 hours.
"Bowie slipped out of her harness at the vet during a potty break. She was being treated for dehydration and possibly an ulcer and was going to stay overnight. She was gone four nights and we spotted her the day before she was found, but she ran from us.
We searched for her each day, and the community was wonderful about reaching out with sightings and looking for her. She endured thunderstorms and 40 degree temperatures at night. She covered some difficult terrain and was several miles from home.
A woman notified me, likely through a Facebook post or seeing a flyer on the neighborhood mailbox, that Bowie was resting in her gazebo. Her home was about 20 minutes from our home. She visited with Bowie and gave her water and comfort. I slowly walked up the driveway and sat down, throwing meat putty in the driveway.
Bowie saw me and slowly walked into my arms and gave me hugs and kisses. Her dad arrived shortly thereafter and received lots of kisses. We took her to the vet and she has some limping (she tore out the IV port and ripped off the bandage) and her paws are roughed up. But overall she is not dehydrated and does not have a fever. She is resting on her favorite bed and dreaming.
Bowie was gone for four nights. With countless hours searching Thursday through Sunday, we got the winning contact late Monday morning. There is definitely value in getting the word out as widely as possible, as people check different Facebook pages."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Bowie's alert. A big thank you to the woman who found Bowie in her gazebo, 20 minutes from home, and cared for her until her parents could come get her. Bowie was gone for four long hot nights and now is home safe.
"Ramzy was outside playing with the dog, and then she went to play in some bushes where she decided to stay - and disappear! After two full days in the 110° heatwave, she showed up at the sliding door around midnight!
PawBoost helped to boost my spirits! The community was so supportive by sharing Ramzy's alert and giving advice to call local pet stores. What a nice group of animal lovers, sharing posts and spreading the word to locate a lost furry friend."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Ramzy's alert and offered helpful advice. Ramzy found her way back home after 2 days in the Portland heatwave and for her family, it feels like a miracle!
"This dog found us. He had been exhausted and needed someone to step up and help him out. We gladly accepted the situation and did our best to take care of him. His owner contacted animal control who then contacted my wife and me about a possible match.
We were then able to reach out to his owner for verification. It took seven days to reunite the two. He had gone missing the day we found him. PawBoost helped us understand what steps were needed to be taken in a situation we have never been in before."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet dog's alert. Thanks to this couple who found him and then did everything they could to figure out how to find his owners. He was gone for a week and is now home safe and sound with his family.
"We let Buddy outside around 9pm and by 9:30 we heard fireworks go off. We looked for him in our backyard and front yard and he was nowhere to be found. My husband drove around the neighborhood and he was gone. We think he freaked out from the sounds and dug under the fence. I posted an alert on PawBoost and almost immediately, I was receiving messages that someone posted pictures on Facebook that they found a dog and it matched my description.
They told me the people took him to the shelter. He went missing at 9:30 pm on Saturday and the shelter was closed Sunday. So we waited until Monday morning and right when they opened, we were able to reunite with our baby. Not even two hours after my listing, I was receiving messages. I was freaked out not knowing where he was. Just knowing he was found and was safe in the shelter, I knew he was coming home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Buddy's alert. And thanks to everyone who contacted his owners to let them know he was found. He’s home safe and the kids are so so happy he’s home.
"I live on the first floor of an apartment complex. I got home from work around midnight, and when I opened the door, Rumour ran out wanting to play. I chased her around the courtyard for about 30 minutes trying to catch her, but I lost track of her.
I put her litter box, cat tree, and a few pieces of clothing that smelled like me outside by the door. I locked January (my other cat) in the living room and opened up my door, hoping Rumour would come in eventually. I was fully prepared to either stay up all night or sleep with the door open.
Around 9 pm, January was meowing, frustrated that she was locked away, so I let her out hoping maybe Rumour would smell HER. Not 30 seconds after letting January on the porch, Rumour strolled around the corner! PawBoost helped me to know that there were good people keeping their eyes out for my baby."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Rumour's alert. Sweet little Rumour was gone for three days and now she's home. January could not be happier!
"This husky was walking around the grocery store parking lot trying to get someone’s attention. She was noticeably seeking help from every person that was walking in and out of the store. I watched her for a while to see if she belonged to anyone in the parking lot, but then she headed towards the road, so I picked her up and took her home with me until we found her owner.
Someone else on Facebook posted a picture of the dog while she was still loose in the parking lot. The owner was able to see and comment on that post, so a mutual friend was able to make the connection. I’m grateful that PawBoost was another option, as every resource available increases the chances of finding the owner! It only took about 4 hours.
She had been missing for an hour before I picked her up, so thankfully she didn’t have to be on her own too long. Every single resource is crucial to reunite a pet with an owner. They’re deeply attached, so it’s great that PawBoost is here to make that reunion possible. This dog in particular was not chipped, so there would be no way of reaching the owner without resources like this."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. And to everyone who helped keep him safe and who worked together to find his owner. Thanks to everyone's efforts, he was home safe within a few hours.
"One night some neighbors lit off fireworks. I just moved here from CA so I wasn’t prepared. Gizmo was out front at this time and ran around the corner. As another neighbor was lighting a bomb off, Gizmo ran like no other and had a good head start on me. It was getting dark fast. I was frantically driving around trying to find him.
Another wonderful neighbor found him by the cemetery, but he wouldn’t go to her. So she drove her car to find me, while leaving him with two boys next to the cemetery. While she was on her way to get me, the boys lost him. Gizmo can jump really high, so the house fences were nothing to him as he started backyard hopping. By this time it was so dark with no moon. I stayed till 2 in the morning searching for him.
The next day I posted an alert on PawBoost to spread the word about Gizmo. One thing I can say about Montana is the people sure are nice. PawBoost let so many neighbors and people around the city know that he was missing. It was really so heartwarming to see all the people that I’d come into contact with that knew about him.
After spending all week searching for him, I began to fear that either he was killed or kidnapped. On Friday after 3 in the morning, my brother woke to hear scratching at the door. He jumped up and opened the front door. Gizmo came running to my door and I woke up myself to hear 'Floyd, GIZMO'S HOME!' Gizmo jumped into my arms, but boy did he smell! (I guess what can I expect after 5 days and 6 nights running around East Helena!)
PawBoost was amazing. The sheer number of people that saw my post blew my mind. Over 7 thousand views!!! Tons of people I’d run into in my area knew about him and the situation. I got tons of support and I got my puppy back!!!!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Gizmo's alert. Thanks to all the wonderful people of Helena, Montana who helped provide so much assistance and support. It was so heartwarming and so appreciated! Gizmo was gone for 6 days and is now home!
"Robbie was playing in his rabbit run in the backyard and was startled by construction happening next door. He bolted over a 4-foot enclosure and jetted under our fenced yard in fright. I put an alert on PawBoost.
I printed the flyers from PawBoost and put them all over my neighborhood. A neighbor called two days later and said that he was in her yard! I was able to pick him up and bring him home. PawBoost was very helpful and I received good advice online."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Robbie's alert and offered such great advice to his family. This sweet bunny was gone for two days and is now home safe.
"My husband went to switch the car seats over and the dog was in our side yard by the fence, just sniffing around. We live on a very busy road and thankfully he was safe for a dog with seeing and hearing problems. The dog's owner saw the PawBoost alert I made on Facebook and emailed me immediately.
Thankfully she was only about 3/4 of a mile away. It took about three hours for us to find his owners. But it was only less than an hour after I made the PawBoost post. It helped reach a lot more people - and the time in which it took to find the owner after the post was put up was so fast."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this sweet pup's alert. Thanks to the kind couple who found him and took care of him. He was less than a mile from home and is now home safe and sound.
"I had my rescue kitty, Izzy, for a little over a month. She has been kept in my bedroom with everything she needs to get comfortable and used to her surroundings. I have a nice, big window ledge where she loves to lay, while looking and listening to all of the nature I have surrounding my house.
I decided to vacuum one day (for the second time since I’ve had her) and she was already in her usual hiding spot. But she got so scared of the vacuum that she darted towards the window and the screen just fell right off. That’s how she went missing outside.
I consistently used a live trap and put fresh wet cat food in there daily. I caught an opossum several times, and three other cats, and then finally, she was in there! PawBoost was able to help by people commenting and giving so many good tips and recommendations on how to get her back home. And also provide hope and encouragement!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Izzy's alert. Thanks for all the tips and suggestions on how to bring this sweet kitty back home! Izzy was missing for exactly two weeks and is now home safe and sound.
"Roma went outside for a walk at night as usual, but he never came back home. He always came back after I called his name before, but he didn’t show up this time, nor in the morning. Security guys from my apartment complex saw me looking for Roma and decided to join me. People on the streets heard me calling Roma and were asking what the deal was about. They also joined me and were searching for him.
Later that day Roma just showed up in the window. I opened the door and he was finally home. Thank you for posting the story of my missing Roma on Facebook! Everyone is as so supportive and kind. Strangers shared the post and gave me advice on how to help my Roma to come back home.
Seeing happy stories of reunited pets gave me hope. I was lost; I didn’t know what to do or where to go. I just wanted all of that to be over and see my baby home safe and sound. Thank you for having my back and helping my Roma to get back home."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Roma's alert. Thank you for all your support, kind words, and tips - and for helping to look for Roma. He is finally home!
"Our neighbors came to our door to see if we recognized a Yorkie mixed dog wandering around. The dog was in our yard and very hot and thirsty. So we brought her in to cool her off and gave her water. The neighbors walked around asking people, without success. I called the St Cloud Animal shelter and they didn't have staff to come and get her, but they could scan for a chip.
I filed a found dog report on their website. Then my husband found PawBoost and we had seen it on Facebook. So I went on and set up an alert. The next day, we received a call from the animal shelter. They said they found the owner, who called them regarding their fur baby. They just came and got her! Such a happy reunion! They actually live near us.
Her name is Daisy and she's an 11-year-old Yorkie Shih Tzu mix. They have 3 young children who were frantic with her missing. Now everyone is together and happy. We are going to plan playtime with our Yorkie and Chihuahuas who got on so well with her. Such a great ending! I'm glad I filed an alert with PawBoost, because it gets a lot of attention from animal lovers. And, I'm sure, a lot of success stories!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Daisy's alert. And thanks so much to this family who brought her in and took care of her and helped find her owners. Not only is Daisy home safe, but she has some new friends to play with!
"We had a new delivery guy that didn't know to make sure the gate was latched closed when leaving our property. We let Steele and our other dog Tonka out for a potty break, and they discovered the partially open gate and got out of the yard. We didn't discover their absence for at least 20 minutes, so they had a head start on exploring the neighborhood.
The husky is older so when we started searching, he hadn't gone far and I was able to catch him quickly. I brought him along with me as we continued the search for Steele, who was much younger and had way more energy. We narrowed down that he was in the next neighborhood over. Steele ran every time someone tried to catch him, and that area is surrounded by very dense brush and woods.
I posted on the neighborhood app, social media and every pet finder app available. On Sunday evening, one of the residents of the next neighborhood over sent a text of a picture of a dog that was in the woods behind her house. She said her dogs had been acting strange for three days and maybe that was why. She couldn't get close before he would run, but she noticed his reflective collar, so she figured he wasn't just a stray.
Based on that, she started looking online to see if anyone had posted a missing dog. She saw Steele's pic and sent it to me. I couldn't search the woods that night but did so the next morning. That neighbor and her family helped us drive the perimeter and eventually someone spotted Steele running from one side of the 'forest' back into the neighborhood.
They were able to corner him until my husband was able to get to them. He brought our other dog and when Steele saw Tonka, he ran to him and then hopped in our car on his own. The reunion picture is of him sitting in the front seat like nothing out of the ordinary ever happened.
PawBoost was able to help by giving me an opportunity to have more alerts and eyes looking out for my fur baby. The ease of sharing from PawBoost to social media helped tremendously and the instant way to create flyers was indispensable. This was one of the first apps other pet owners suggested right after they learned my dog was missing."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Steele's alert and looked out for him. He was gone for four days when they found him. Other than being really dirty and having a small cut on his nose, he’s great!
"Our cat Mia is also known as Monkey. We woke up and couldn’t find her one morning. We thought that she may have jumped off our first floor balcony - which is pretty high - onto the neighboring building's walkway. We followed all of PawBoost’s recommendations. We kept calm while calling her, looked all over our surrounding buildings, put up posters, and called her HomeAgain microchip company.
Then finally, after 13 hours of searching, we discovered her in a cupboard inside our house, where she must have slipped inside without us being aware. She never made a peep all day. But as it grew quieter in the building - and dark out - we finally heard her very soft meow.
We have no idea how she got inside the cupboard, as it’s always blocked by a heavy hamper! All of the fabulous guidance and advice from the PawBoost community, the outpouring of support from people who saw the alert, and the 'don’t give up hope' messages were so helpful."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Mia's alert and to all who prayed and cared. The outpouring of caring messages really helped this family keep the faith and not lose hope. They are so relieved that she is safe and are grateful for all the support.
"A cat was outside my window and when I opened the window, it's face popped out of the bushes and jumped right in. I was not able to capture that moment, as I thought that maybe it was my neighbor's cat meowing to get inside the building. Turns out it wasn’t, but this cat was desperate to get inside a safe place for the night.
We sent out a massive posting through different social media platforms, and one included our building messaging system. Our building is full of cat owners but no one had ever seen this cat before. So the word spread to find this cat's owners. A neighbor posted the cat on another neighborhood group she’s part of on Facebook and someone on that group happened to be the owner.
This cat is apparently a neighborhood cat known as Marble, who seems to crash at a different homes. But she travelled a further distance than normal and must have gotten lost between my street area and the owner's home (which is about 2 km away). The owners didn’t know she was missing, as she is an outdoor cat. It took me about 6 hours to find the owners."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared this lost cat Marble's alert. And thanks to all these cat-loving neighbors who worked together to find her owners. Marble traveled a little too far this time, but they managed to find her owners in just 6 hours.
"Pearl is a tiny 4 pound girl and as soon as I wake up in the mornings, I take her and her sister outside to the backyard before I do anything. I had to run back in the house for less than 2 minutes and she slipped out between my gate and fence, she is that thin. I ran out the front door in only my nightgown and no shoes calling her name.
I saw her across the street in the church parking lot and it looked like she ran to a construction worker's truck. I jumped in my truck since I wasn't dressed to drive over and get her and she was gone. They pointed to my house and said she ran that away, but she didn't. I searched up and down for hours and finally called the police for help.
I had almost given up and was going to post her picture on Facebook and Nextdoor. I did a search for lost dogs of Fort Worth and PawBoost popped up! I posted her picture there and scrolled down, only to see my poor Pearl on there! Someone at the high school near me found her and Apollo Rescue had her. I was crying with relief so much that my son had to find the rescue and make arrangements for them to meet me."
Spread the good news! Thanks so much to everyone who shared Pearl's alert! Thanks to the Good Samaritan who found her and took her to Apollo Rescue. Pearl was only gone a few hours before her owner found her, thanks to everyone who helped!
"Pancake got into a friend's trailer while it was being loaded, and traveled 3 hours south. They stopped at a hotel and the trailer was opened. Pancake escaped from the trailer and ran towards other cats and could not be found. I posted many flyers around the area, reported to PawBoost, and posted on social media.
Someone saw a flyer and texted me that they had seen Pancake a few hours prior. I went to the area, which was a few enclosed dumpsters at an apartment complex. I then called his name twice and he began meowing constantly and came running from out of the dumpsters.
PawBoost allowed my information to be shared over 150 times on Facebook by many individuals that I did not even know. So many people were searching for him. This was particularly helpful since I lived 3 hours north and could not look everyday."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Pancake's alert and spent so much time and effort to try and find him. He was three hours away from home for two weeks - and is now home safe and sound.
"Harley ran right up to me when I got out of work. She was hot and thirsty, so I gave her some water and I pet her. I knew she was someone's baby; she was so sweet and trusting and knew how to sit. I picked her up and put her in my car, putting the slip leash I keep in my car for this kind of situation on her.
I posted her picture on PawBoost and her dad saw the alert! The owner contacted me no more than five minutes after I posted. She had been missing for three days! She had made it 13 miles from home. PawBoost is a great service to help pet parents find their lost babies. And for people like me who habitually pick up strays, to help get them home safe."
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Harley's post. And thanks so much this kind person who is always on the lookout for stray pets and helps get them home safe. Harley had been missing for three days and her owner was found just five minutes after she posted the alert!
"Rocco went missing during the night and did not come back. We went looking for him all night and day, with no sign of him. The funny part is that Rocco was looking for us while we were looking for him. Two days went by until someone said to put a piece of clothing out - anything with our scent - and that he would be able to sniff his way home. It worked! I got a call saying he made it home and Rocco kept barking and barking. He came HOME TO US!
I hope all your fur babies are found and reunited. Now go put a piece of clothing - anything - outside! Keep checking and drive; they recognize the sound your vehicle makes! I posted on PawBoost and just a couple of hours later, someone messaged saying the area they had seen him. PawBoost gets the word out and you get hope!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone who shared Rocco's alert. Thanks for getting the word out and reaching out to offer hope and encouragement. And thanks for all the great suggestions - because they worked! Rocco came home!
"Paws snuck out during my annual flower bed mulch project. I was going in and out the front door a lot. Shortly after coming inside, I realized there was no Paws. I looked everywhere inside the house, shaking treats and calling her name, to no avail. My daughter and I were going outside every hour, walking the perimeter of the property, looking in bushes and trees.
Paws came home herself one morning. I opened the back door and saw a cat run into my garage. I called her name and she came running. PawBoost was super easy to use and share! It was very helpful to get the word out for my lost cat! Thank you so much for your assistance!!!!"
Spread the good news! Thanks to everyone for sharing Paws' alert and for offering support and caring. She was gone for two horrible long days but is now home safe.
