Read about recently reunited fur babies.
Pets Reunited And Counting!
"This unfortunate incident started during the night when 3 alerts alarmed due to flash flooding and thunderstorm warnings. I made the mistake of leaving our back door ajar when I was lifting the patio umbrella that fell over from strong winds. Naturally, Noodle was with me on the deck. But suddenly, there was thunder. I looked back and Noodle was gone.
My mistake, I assumed she ran back in the house to her safe spot upstairs in our bedroom. After I secured the umbrella, I ran upstairs to check on Noodle since the thunder kept getting louder continuously. As I got to the top steps, I saw her from the window. She was next door running so scared further away from our house since the thunder got worse.
By the time I ran to the front of our house, she thankfully crossed the street safely and I then ran after her. It started pouring by then and thunder kept rolling. She just kept getting more scared and ran faster and I’m sure she hid under a bush which then I could not tell where she was.
Although I was calling out to her the thunder was so loud. I called my family and we all searched for hours with no luck. The rain tapered down and my husband and I searched until 2am. Around 4am I checked online and started posting ads everywhere. However, PawBoost was most helpful as her post was shared over 100 times.
The rain finally stopped and we planned to search again. At 9:30am I received a phone call from an unfamiliar number, my husband answered and it was a lady from the neighborhood that spotted Noodle running into a neighbor’s open yard. Sure enough, my husband called out her name and she darted out the open yard. He grabbed her and she was so excited.
Huge thanks to PawBoost for spreading the word. We are so blessed that caring people got Noodle back to us. We definitely recommend PawBoost should this ever happen to you, which I hope never happens to anyone ever. However, if it does, PawBoost is your best bet."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Noodle's alert. Reunited and it feels so good :)
"Geo got outside when I was trying to leave the apartment one Sunday night. My other dog also got out, however he came back after about 10 minutes. Geo ran off towards the back of the house which is surrounded by fields and woods. After about an hour I decided to reach out to my family two hours away to help with the search since I recently moved to the area.
They drove up and we searched all night long and throughout the next day. We called local shelters, posted all over social media, posted 400 flyers in surround areas, and posted on PawBoost. Around 3 am on Tuesday morning my other dog, Gallo, started to act odd and was pacing around the apartment.
I decided to get up and let him outside because I was hoping he would be able to lead me to Geo. When I went outside Geo was there peaking around the corner of the building. He was shaking and wet but kissing me and Gallo all over.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost because it truly helps to spread the word about missing and found pets. I feel that increases the number of eyes that are looking for your lost baby and they give good tips on how to search for them. PawBoost may not have directly dropped Geo off at my door, however it helped give me hope to see the 200+ shares Geo’s ad got. Thank you PawBoost for helping me!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Geo's alert. He is home safely now and is getting a lot of cuddles for his return :)
"My large sulcata tortoise Dartanian went missing one Friday when the front gate to our house was left open. After a thorough search in the immediate area with no success I knew missing flyers had to go up right away and stumbled across PawBoost. I had no idea how thorough PawBoost is in every arena that comes to reuniting pets and families!
Once I filled out the information I started getting immediate responses. Many of them were to show emotional support which is really what I needed at the time as I was so distraught. And the urgency of PawBoost members spreading the word to other social media platforms just to help me gave me great hope.
The very next day I got a direct message through PawBoost from the lovely lady who found my Dartanian and had thoughtfully brought him to the SPCA. I owe a debt of gratitude to the PawBoost Rescue Squad and Julia who found him for bringing my tortoise, who is my whole world, and I back together!
I have been telling everyone I know about PawBoost ever since I found your site and I too will be checking in each day to provide emotional support and spread the word as fast as you guys did for me when the next pet goes missing. This is by far the most helpful, necessary website that everyone needs to know about! A million thanks again to PawBoost."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Dartanian's alert. Happy 5th birthday Dartanian! He made it home just in time to celebrate :)
"Bella was home alone with my other fur baby, Coop. We had a passing thunderstorm with high winds while I was gone. We think that the winds caused my carport door to blow open and when Bella heard the neighbor's cars start up next door she assumed it was me returning home.
She always greets me at the door, so when she got to the door she realized the door was open and was able to push the screen door open to get outside. The screen door closed behind her and she was unable to get back into the house.
I reached out through all social media platforms, such as Facebook lost/found groups, PawBoost, local veterinarians’ offices Facebook pages, etc... PawBoost helped by automatically posting the ad to reach more people and spread the word.
We had a number of people searching for Bella on foot and by vehicle. We searched all day! Through social media, we were able to gain knowledge of legit sightings of Bella. It narrowed our search radius by a lot. Since Bella is a senior dog, she does not move very fast, so we knew she wouldn’t be far from the last sighting.
Right before dark, something told me to go drive around one more time. I went to one of the areas we had searched multiple times during the day. I happened to see something white in the front yard of a family home. I was about 400 yards away at the time, so I honestly figured when I got up close, it would end up being a trash bag or something similar. However; I was wrong! It was my Bella!
The owner of the home told me that she had just wandered up about the time I spotted her. I think Bella and I were both in shock when we realized our eyes weren’t deceiving us. Tears of JOY ran down my face! She was missing somewhere between 15-20 hours.
I definitely would recommend PawBoost to a friend. The more people you have sharing your pet's photo, the more likely you are to reunite with your pet."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Bella's alert. Bella's mama is so happy to have her baby home where she belongs :)
"In the haste of moving our garage for our moving date, Benji slipped out as garage door just happened to malfunction and open as it went down. We didn’t realize he slipped out until he didn’t come for dinner that evening and that started the frantic search.
An incredibly kind neighbor down the street found him in her backyard. She cared for him for a couple of days until she found him on PawBoost, and messaged us! I can’t express how much gratitude I have for her. She kept him safe and fed on those stressful nights and I could never thank her enough.
I would 100% recommend PawBoost, without a doubt. What you guys do is fundamental in creating reunions. It spreads the word and gets people to keep an eye and ear out for lost pets. In my situation, we’re moving and I've no doubt I wouldn’t of reunited with Benji as quickly as I did without you guys.
Thank you so much PawBoost, everyone who shared, everyone who kept an eye out - for all the prayers and well wishes. He’s home safe and sound, and I can breathe again."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Benji's alert. He was found in a wonderful neighbor's back yard, and is now receiving plenty of love and treats from his family :)
"Duchess disappeared from our backyard when she was let out to use the bathroom around our boy's bed time last night. Unbeknownst to me, someone had left the side gate unlatched and when I went to let her back in, she was gone. What complicated the matter is she is also blind!
I looked everywhere and called the two emergency vets in our area, telling them what happened and that she was microchipped. Being after 9 on a Friday no other offices were open to help. There was a massive heat advisory in our area and I was starting to panic. It had cooled down to the low 80s but if we didn’t find her before morning it was going to be high 90s!
I went to Facebook and a friend recommended PawBoost which would reach more people in our area. I filled out her info and at 4:30 AM I got a call from a complete stranger saying she thinks she saw Duchess. She’d seen the PawBoost alert but Duchess wouldn’t come to the woman so she called the number listed.
My husband (bless him) got up and drove over to the next neighborhood to see if he could spot her. Twenty minutes later he called with Duchess in the car, safe and unharmed. She was hot and mildly dehydrated but she is fully recovered now. I don’t think we would have found Duchess in time without PawBoost. It saved her life!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Duchess's alert. As soon as she got home she got plenty of water and a cold bath :)
"Zola is a very nervous dog, she follows me everywhere. I think what happened was she followed me into the garage when I was leaving and I didn't notice. Then when I drove away she must have followed the car for as long as possible. She is a Vizsla, miniature Greyhound, Spaniel mix which means she is an extremely fast runner and kept up for awhile.
She ended up in a nearby neighborhood before she realized she was lost, then traveled back towards home the best she could remember. Many people spotted her during her travels home, but she wouldn't let anyone get near her. I used a number of resources to get her back and PawBoost was one of them. Many friends and family searched for her on both foot and by car.
In the end it was me hitting the pavement with lost dog flyers and passing them out to every person I ran into whether it be dog walkers, mail carriers, PG&E workers, gardeners, or anyone out and about. A few people said they saw her, but wouldn't let them get close, so she would just run.
One woman said Zola was watching her from the sidewalk into her kitchen window and then she was gone, this was an hour before. I handed her a flyer, jumped back on my bike and continued the search. A couple hours later the same woman from earlier called and said Zola came back to her house and she was hiding in some bushes.
The woman just stood watch but didn't approach her while I made my way to her. When I got to the house Zola slowly came out of the bushes. Her body was very soar making it hard for her to walk, but her tail was definitely not damaged, it was wagging a hundred miles an hour.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost along with all other forms of social media. Many people during my search asked if I had posted with PawBoost. From this stressful experience my advice would be, get out there, be personable, make connections, use social media and get your community involved on multiple levels."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Zola's alert. She is now home safe and sound :)
"I'm still not sure how it happened, but when I got home from work one of every pet parent's worst nightmares of the gate being open happened. After calling and calling, it became immediately obvious neither of my two young basset hounds were still at home. As I walked up the street calling their names, one came running towards me but Cassie was no where to be found.
After searching for a couple of hours, I stopped and posted her information on PawBoost and Facebook before going back out to search. Within 2 hours, someone replied that a basset had been taken to the local shelter and included a link with the picture from the shelter's Facebook page.
Other sites did end up coming through as well, but PawBoost was the first to let me know she was safe. Due to it being after hours, her brother and I had to wait until the shelter opened the next morning before getting her back where she belonged, but it was a much more restful night knowing she was safe.
I would absolutely recommend PawBoost. It was a free way to get input from locals to give me peace of mind until the shelters opened up the next day. I had seen PawBoost alerts before for other people's pets, and can't even say how glad I am to have another resource to help people get their family members back."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Cassie's alert. Cassie is back home and already playing with her other escapee, Diesel :)
"I was traveling down Rock Quarry Rd in Southeast Raleigh one Tuesday. It was 98 degrees, the traffic was heavy, and the dog looked very panicked. Four lanes of vehicles were slowly dodging her as she navigated across the road and into the Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School parking lot.
I pulled over and called for her. She came willingly and laid down in the air conditioning of my backseat. I used several social media and pet advocacy outlets to reach as many people as possible. PawBoost was the first site I posted on and it is also the site that generated the most shares.
The family contacted me through a different Facebook group, but I know that PawBoost was integral in the reunion of Bobbi. I would recommend PawBoost, because it is user friendly and offered helpful tips via email."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Bobbi's alert. Bobbi is home safe and sound :)
"My husband and I went to church one Sunday and there was a dog that had been there for 3 days. Others tried to capture her but didn't have any luck. Also, the church is on a major street so we did not want to spook her. We put some food and water down and sat in the grass close by. After she was done eating and she saw we were not trying to come after her, we were able to pet her and get a leash on her.
She had a part in her fur that looked like she had recently worn a collar. She had also recently had a litter of pups, but they were not with her. However, she looked healthy and taken care of. At the time, we thought she had been dumped and maybe she was, but not by the true owner. Now we think when she first was lost, a third party took her and then left her after she had the pups.
Anyway, we went home and posted on many sites and had her checked for a microchip. We thought we had them all covered, but on the second day, someone recommended PawBoost, so I posted there as well. In less than a day, we got a phone call from the true owner that we had found his Lucy Maria.
Apparently, Lucy Maria had been missing since April and she was originally posted as lost on PawBoost. As the owner was still monitoring the site, he had seen her picture on your Facebook page for Glendale, AZ. Looking at the picture he posted in April, you could see that it was her by small details. She went missing at 4 months old and was now almost 8 months, so there were some differences.
Without PawBoost, I don't think this reunion would have happened. Thank you PawBoost, after only a few days we already had grown attached as she is so sweet. However, the ideal situation is for her to be with her people and we are very glad that we were able to help make that happen."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Lucy Maria's alert. Thanks to all of your help she is now home safe and sound :)
"I found this dog just outside my house on the way to lunch. She had an easy walk harness on but no collar or leash and no one walking with her. She was very gentle and super shy so I approached her slowly until she seemed comfortable with my hand and then I scooped her up to go with me to lunch.
Afterwards I asked a few volunteers from Durham APS on what to do and they suggested I bring her into the shelter but not before posting on multiple Facebook groups and on PawBoost. I was working from home so I decided to go to the shelter a little later in the afternoon and sure enough, a few hours later someone called me saying I found her dog and she saw the Facebook post that PawBoost shared!
I definitely would recommend PawBoost, mainly because it really helped with getting the word out! I wasn’t entirely sure what Facebook group to post in and in one of them I wasn’t even allowed to post as I wasn’t an approved member yet so I’m glad PawBoost was able to help."

"We assume Jack wandered out when one of our daughters left the door open for a minute, but I didn’t notice until sometime later when I fed the cats and he didn’t come to eat. We searched the area, made posters and flyers, talked to any neighbor we saw walking by, checked with the humane society, and shared as much as we could online, including PawBoost.
Jack was found hiding under a car a few houses away from ours with the help of some neighbors who live on our street. We are thrilled to have him home! We had a disappointing moment when the humane society thought they might have him, but it turned out to be another kitty. HOWEVER, as we were leaving the humane society, the receptionist said, 'I’ve just received a photo of him from PawBoost!' What a comfort that was!
Thank you for your help, and for your support. I would completely recommend PawBoost to a friend. The community was encouraging, and the resources were so helpful. The tips we received in an email from PawBoost may well have been what brought our boy out of hiding so we could retrieve him."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Jack's alert. He was out for a couple of nights, but seems to be doing well! His family is so happy to have their sweet boy home :)
"I was getting my kids ready for Church and walked outside to let Otto out. My four year old son was inside crying, because we let Otto out without him. In the chaotic moment of trying to get Otto in and calm my son down, he may have ran back out as I was shutting the door.
I saw an advertisement on Facebook for PawBoost and thought why not? so I signed up. Within several minutes of signing up, I got several emails letting me know people were liking and sharing the post. After several hours of searching the neighborhood and checking the shelters, I received an email that my dog was found.
I would recommend PawBoost, because they helped me find my dog and now everyone can rest happy knowing Otto is safe and sound."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Otto's alert. Otto's family is happy to have him home :)
"I saw this dog running down a very busy road. I turned around in hopes of catching her and getting her back home, but each time I approached her she would run toward the busy intersection. Finally, two other dog lovers stopped to help. The three of us were able to corral her and she finally let us get close enough to catch her.
I immediately took her to the emergency vet to be scanned for a chip since there was no contact information on her collar, but she did not have a chip. My husband and I drove for two hours through several neighborhoods hoping someone would recognize this fur baby. However, no luck!!!
We then decided to post her information on PawBoost. After about an hour, I was contacted by a lady that said that was her neighbor’s dog. She arranged to pick her up at my house since the owner was elderly. Come to find out, this fur baby was fifteen years old herself.
She was reunited with her mom and could not have been happier. Lulu is back home!!! PawBoost was the reason this baby made it back home. I would highly recommend your services to anyone missing a pet or trying to reunite one that is lost!! Thank you PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Lulu's alert. A special thank you to this Good Samaritan for taking the necessary steps to reunite this sweet pup with her pet parent :)
"We went to a birthday party and must’ve not latched the door all the way shut. Bean pushed it open, so when we got home he was nowhere to be found. We drove around looking for him until 2am and finally went to sleep. We woke up around 8:30 and received a call from a lady who thought she spotted him.
We took off to the spot she gave us, and called his name for about an hour and a half or so. We then started on our way back home, and decided to drive around the park just one more time. We drove passed our house and I spotted him out of the corner of my eye in our back yard. He must’ve found his own way home.
PawBoost helped us share the story to the world so everybody could look out as well. I would definitely recommend PawBoost to a friend! 10/10!"
Spread the good news! Thank you so much to everyone who shared Bean's alert. Bean is home safe and sound :)
"One Sunday, my family and I returned home from a camping trip. While unloading our trailer and bringing in items into our house, someone left the front door cracked and Petra slipped out. After about 30 minutes I realized Petra wasn’t there to greet me with our other cat. I immediately searched the house and then went directly outside to look for her.
We spent the rest of the night looking around the house, scoping the neighborhood, and calling the microchip company to inform them she was missing. By the end of that night, we posted flyers throughout our neighborhood blocks and I also posted on PawBoost, my neighborhood website, and other local websites.
For the next five days we continued looking, checking online to see if anyone found her, and handed all of our neighbors a flyer. We also asked our neighbors to check their garages and around their properties. At night we walked around looking for her with a flashlight hoping to see her glowing eyes.
After 6 long, hot days my next door neighbor thought he saw my cat in his garage. As soon as I called out her name, she began to meow. My heart sank! I called her name many times but she would not come out. She just continued to meow repeatedly. We moved the stored boxes she was behind, picked her up and took her home for our emotional reunion.
Losing a member of your family is devastating. I do not ever wish this on anybody. But if anyone ever loses their pet remember DON’T give up! I honestly feel that not giving up and involving all my neighbors really helped. If my neighbor didn’t know what was going on, he could’ve just opened his garage door and tried to get her to scurry out.
Having Petra posted on PawBoost was also very helpful. I received emails with daily updates of found animals. It made me feel there was more than just me looking for her. Thank you again for all of your recommendations on finding her and your updated postings."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Petra's alert. Petra is home safe and sound :)
"Rex has always been an indoor/outdoor cat. He always stayed close and would come when called. He did not come home one day and we knew something was wrong. He was missing for 50 days. Finally, he came running down our back yard screaming and meowing. He was so thin he did not have an ounce of fat on him.
Also, they’re unable to tell if his leg/hip is fractured or if he was pinned in the same position for too long. One leg is very weak and the muscle has pretty serious deterioration. All that doesn’t matter because he’s home! He’s so strong willed and sweet. He did whatever he needed to make it back to us.
My 8 year old son and him have been best friends and right away, after eating for 30 minutes straight, he jumped into my son's bed with him and was smiling. I have no idea where he was, if he was caught on something, or hit by something. PawBoost gave us hope and helped us spread the word he was missing.
Social media is so huge these days that it’s the quickest and most effective way to spread any type of information. We can’t thank you enough for the ongoing support and always moving Rex’s picture to the top of the list. We know we are so lucky! Rex thanks you, too!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rex's alert. His spirits are high, he’s eating and very happy to be home :)
"I was away on vacation and Soup's pet sitter (my adult son) let him out to potty, but had failed to latch the fence gate. Soup decided to go on a walk about. My son didn’t want me to know Soup was missing, so he didn’t tell me until that night. I couldn’t do much from my hotel and was on an early flight the next morning, so I left a message at the local shelter and took to the internet.
Within about an hour of putting him on PawBoost, several people reported seeing a Facebook post that morning matching Soup's description. Fortunately, the woman who found him posted a picture (definitely Soup!) and took him to the shelter. A couple of calls between flights the next day and my daughter was able to go pick him up. I got home a day later to an ebullient poodle.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost. I would have located Soup through the shelter and maybe even have seen the Facebook post by his rescuer, but I think PawBoost made it all happen more quickly.
When you have that sinking feeling in your stomach that you’ll never see your pet again, and especially in my situation when I was out of town and helpless to do much, the more people that can be looped in, the better. Thanks very much for helping me find my little pal!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Soup's alert. A special thank you to Soup's rescuer. They're both home now and he is not letting his pet parent out of his sight :)
"Phoenix is only 10 weeks old and has never flown away. We have 2 dogs and when we opened our backyard door to let them out our neighbor was cutting grass and both dogs ran out barking. This must have spooked poor Phoenix because he flew right after them, went over the fence and disappeared from our view.
We have a ravine behind our house with lots of trees. We spent the whole day outside looking for him, went to every neighbor on our street, posted flyers, called animal services, and posted everywhere online. Then around midnight I got a call from a lady saying she found our bird and she was sending us a video.
We were so excited until we saw the video and realized it wasn’t our bird. I was searching online for any posts when I came upon a comment on one of the Facebook pages that said that someone spotted Phoenix not far from our house sitting on a wire. I went to drive around that area and I thought I saw him sitting up on a wire but when I pulled up he was gone.
This was already around 2am so I thought I must’ve imagined it. The next day we went out looking again. The lady from the Bird Network told us birds tend to fly north, so we went to post flyers all over Aurora and Newmarket. We were starting to lose all hope when around 8pm I got a call from someone saying they thought Phoenix was sitting on the roof of their house. He texted me the address and it turned out to be right next to where I thought I saw him sitting on a wire.
When Phoenix saw my husband and I he tried to fly down to us but suddenly turned and flew to the top of a nearby tree. It took another 5 minutes of talking to him before he finally flew down and right into my arms.
I would definitely recommend PawBoost, because it helped a lot with spreading the word. This picture is Phoenix after eating (poor thing was starving!) and receiving lots of hugs and kisses! He’s happily sleeping on his perch."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Phoenix's alert. Phoenix is home safe and sound :)
"This cat started coming around more often at night to eat some food we were leaving out for an abandoned dog. She was very talkative, and I was afraid she was injured. So I sat outside one night and called for her until she came out of the bushes and slowly made her way to me.
I figured out she was not injured, just talkative, and from that point forward (for about 2 weeks), she came back every night and was at our home until the morning time. She was so loving and wanted to come in our house. She even followed my husband and I all the way around the block one night when we were walking our dogs.
We took her in to get checked for a microchip and she was, but the information was 3-4 years old. None of the phone numbers or email worked, and they hadn't lived at the address for 3 years, which they were renting. I only had their last name and the address they lived at 4 years ago to work with.
I visited the address and the current tenants said the previous tenant had shown up when they were there for about 4 months asking if they had seen a cat. This gave me hope that they really were searching for this cat. I did a lot of searching on Google and Facebook and started putting some pieces together.
I sent a Facebook message to the person I thought may be the owner, but I didn't receive a reply. I found another address close to my home and went there, but no one was home. I left a long note explaining what I was doing and hoped I was on the right track. The tenants of that home said they knew the family I was talking about and would forward the information to the daughter.
The daughter contacted me later that night and we figured out it was her mom's cat Mimo that had been missing for 3 years! She's since moved out of Texas but is driving to pick up Mimo from her daughter. I think PawBoost is a wonderful resource that helps many people reunite with their pets, and I am grateful for their help."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Mimo's alert. Reunited after 3 years! Amazing :)
"While I was away from my house, Furby got past a family member. He wasn't able to get Furby to come back by calling and thought he would come back on his own, but he didn't. When I got home I searched all around the yard and surrounding area, put out food, toys, litter, etc. for several days, but I couldn't find him.
With PawBoost I was able to print fliers that I brought to all of my neighbors and got some local shops to put up, as well as brought to shelters. I would recommend PawBoost because if a pet is lost and someone finds it or it's at a shelter I think it's a faster way to locate your pet. I got some texts from neighbors who saw the online posting saying they'd keep a lookout for the cat, and people I brought the fliers to said they would as well.
Furby came home while I was sitting outside on the front porch talking with a friend. He came running from down the street like he just heard our voices and into the driveway, looked at me, tried meowing (but he can't because of a birth defect) and I called 'Furby!' He stood still, let me walk over, scoop him up and carry him in.
He looks like he's been living a bit rough the last month. I'll be taking him to the vet to get tick, flea medicine, and checked out ASAP. Plus he's going to be microchipped after being lost like that. My Furby baby is back! Thanks for all the help!"

"Kimi likes to sit outside a little each day and she never leaves our backyard. She enjoys sitting on the patio and she lets us know when she wants to come inside. On the 4th of July, about 6 PM we let her outside since fireworks wouldn't be starting until 9 PM. Well, kids in the area started setting off firecrackers around 7 PM and when we heard the first one go off, I ran to the door to get Kimi Pooh in but she was gone.
We checked the yard and we walked all over the neighborhood looking for her until about 1 AM. My husband and I searched and searched but decided it was too late and had to get some rest. Three hours later, we were pounding the pavement going all over calling her and looking under bushes and in trees, the park, everywhere.
Disappointed and exhausted, we had to stop around 2 PM to get some rest and have something to eat. A few hours later, we were searching the neighborhood again and noticed an animal control truck about 5 houses away from our house. We talked to the animal control lady and she opened up her truck and there was Kimi!
Apparently she was in a neighbor's backyard hiding out. Thank you to the animal control woman and our neighbors that called animal control to help Kimi! We are grateful fur baby parents and I can't even begin to explain how happy we were to find her. After we got some food and water into her, she perked up and became her sweet, friendly kitty self and started talking to us.
I believe that PawBoost and my neighborhood posts helped us in many ways. Getting messages from your neighbors and PawBoost that showed love and concern about Kimi's welfare gave us the encouragement to keep pounding the pavement. I would recommend putting a lost pet posting on every and any social media that you can find. Thanks to our community of wonderful people that worked together to help this sweet, little girl get home."

"Rebel went missing when the trash was being taken out and there was a big bang that made him run. The fireworks have had him on edge lately and the loud noise just spooked him. He must have ran too far and lost his bearings to get home.
I posted on PawBoost, on Facebook's lost/found page, Craigslist and Nextdoor. I was contacted on the Nextdoor app after 5 days of Rebel missing. He walked up to a house that was cooking bacon and their front door open. She checked lost/found ads and contacted me.
I was a sobbing mess when I picked him up as was he. He was whining in my arms. I hugged his savior and thanked her tremendously! This app is great as it posts for you and continually checks in and offers tips. Also being able to print the flyer PawBoost generates for you is a time saver.
Thank you for your service to our pets and families! We are overjoyed and this boy is hungry, tired and in need of a bath."

"The kitty actually found me and wandered right into my backyard. I heard crying and went out to check her out. She walked right up to me rubbing and head butting me and I knew she was not a stray/feral. I knew she was loved and probably escaped her home. I brought her in my home and placed her in my guest bathroom with food, water, kitty bed and some toys.
Once I had her safe inside, I created an account with PawBoost and wrote up a short description and just hoped that this wonderful community would help this kitty find her family. PawBoost was the reason that Lila and her family were reunited. I was contacted within the hour that I posted to the site. Her family had been looking for her and Lila’s mom was watching the site and posted additional pictures of her kitty and we contacted each other.
Lila is now back home with her family! I would absolutely recommend PawBoost! This is a wonderful site that brings together so many fantastic folks that monitor and share information to reunite lost pets. Thank you so much for all the work that you all do!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Lila's alert. A special thank you to this Good Samaritan for reuniting this sweet kitty with her family :)
"My husband and I found Chica wandering around the parking lot of the Metrolink station. She was very friendly and walked right up to us. She was almost hit by a couple of cars because she is so small so we decided to take her home. We knew she had to have a good family somewhere because she did not seem like she was under stress other than being a little scared from being lost.
We made up flyers and posted them around the neighborhood surrounding the train station. When we found her she did not have a collar or doggie tag and when we took her to a vet they told us she didn't have a chip. We then went online and stumbled upon PawBoost and created a found alert. Within hours of the listing going up, we were contacted by the owners who lived right by the Metrolink station.
It was a very rewarding experience for both me and my husband and we were so happy, as were the owners, that she is back at home! We absolutely could not have done this without PawBoost. The exposure our listing received on PawBoost was quite honestly overwhelming. We received valuable information on how to get Chica back to her owners from people who commented on the post.
Although we listed on several other lost and found websites, our listing on PawBoost was the most helpful and got the exposure we needed to get Chica reunited with her family. We honestly can't say enough good things! If this took place before the internet and PawBoost, this story's happy ending may not have happened."

"Buddy is my mother-in-law's dog and he went missing in February. He dug under the fence (which has since been fixed!), and went off to explore. I immediately posted on PawBoost and a few other pages. I sent the PawBoost flyer to my mother-in-law to print and put up. Months went by, but I continued to bump my post and many WONDERFUL people continued to share every found chihuahua post with me.
Finally, someone from the PawBoost Facebook page saw the post of a woman that found a chihuahua. The woman that saw the post found my post of Buddy and realized it was him! She immediately provided my info to the woman and they both reached out to me. Turns out, the woman that found Buddy was staying at a friend’s house 3 blocks away from my mother-in-law!
Had it not been for PawBoost and the many wonderful people who use it, we never would have found him. He is home safe and sound and we are ALL incredibly happy. THANK YOU PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Buddy's alert. After 4 months and 10 days missing, Buddy is now HOME! :)
"We are not certain how Crosley truly went missing. He either got out from underneath our fence, which he has never done, or someone took him from our backyard. We noticed Crosley was missing around 10:30 AM. He ended up about 35 minutes away from his home, just hours later. We believe someone took him in a car and he either got away or they dropped him off in the Hyde Park area, for whatever reason.
PawBoost was a HUGE help. I posted a message to my local Liberty Township Facebook group thinking if he was going to be found, it would be because of that smaller, local group. But then I found PawBoost and figured, what the heck? I posted to PawBoost about 8 PM the night he was taken, and saw someone comment via the PawBoost post asking if he was chipped.
The wonderful woman who posted found a dog that looked just like Crosley around 1PM, but she lived 35 minutes away. I asked her to send a picture but I figured it was highly unlikely that was my dog. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was Crosley, I was certain.
This wonderful family found him walking in their neighborhood in the afternoon, and went above and beyond to take care of Crosley while they had him. They met up with my wife the next day and Crosley was reunited with his family that evening. Truly a miracle!
I will certainly recommend PawBoost to anyone and everyone. If it wasn’t for my post to PawBoost, there’s a good chance Crosley would have never been reunited with his family. Thank you so very much for your service!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Crosley's alert. Crosley is home safe and sound thanks to a very kind family who saw him wandering their neighborhood and took care of him :)
"Luna was lost one Tuesday evening. My family and I were going to church and our 4 dogs, including Luna, took off running after we opened the gate to leave for church. That night, it was about to storm as it was thundering and lightening. We thought that by leaving the gate open they would just come back because if we run after them it just makes it more dangerous.
They were all gone over night, but the next morning three of the four dogs were back, except Luna. We were looking for her all day and nothing. We were so worried and devastated. The following morning, I got a call and it was about Luna being found. She got to their home that night and slept on their porch. In the morning, they checked her tag and that's how they got my phone number.
I would recommend PawBoost because it helps to spread the word quickly about your lost pet. Thank you PawBoost and thank you to all the people that shared about Luna. We are elated to have her back home with us."
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Luna's alert. Her family feels so blessed and happy to have her back :)
"I noticed that Jax went missing one Monday morning when he did not come down for breakfast. Jax is always the first one downstairs for breakfast so it was strange to me. I just started looking all over my house like a tornado. Panic sat in so I went outside and started looking for him and calling out his name. My son and I put up posters in the neighborhood.
I went to Facebook and I found PawBoost to post Jax's story and the number of replies received was awesome. Many sightings of Jax came through, but it was not Jax. I also received techniques on how to catch Jax's attention by shaking treats, calling his name, leaving litter and cat food out.
One week later, I received a phone call from Jackie H. We compared notes on Jax's description and excitement hit me from head to toe, and Jackie lives two blocks away. I noticed later that day that Jackie posted that she found Jax.
PawBoost is like an AMBER ALERT for pets. Thank you so much for getting the word out as fast as you did. I urge everyone who has pets to use PawBoost to help other pets! Love you PawBoost!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Jax's alert. Jax's family appreciates your prayers and all of the kind words. Big thanks to Jackie who took GREAT CARE of him :)
"Willow went missing when she decided to run through the invisible fence we have around our property. She made her way from one end of our town to the other. She was on her way home the next day when a neighbor spotted her and called out. This spooked her and she ran to the creek. She followed this creek to the next community, which meant crossing very busy roads.
She was seen in a certain area by several people and although I spent 10 hours driving around that area over 3 days, I could not find her. The evening of the 3rd day, my daughter took a chance and decided to go back over to where she’d been seen. She traveled through a cornfield and woods calling to her. She didn’t have a leash or anything but a milk bone. She finally saw her and snuck around a corner on her knees and spoke to Willow.
Our sweet pup was so happy to see her. She fell into her arms and flipped over, belly showing. My daughter then brought her home and I was so surprised and overwhelmed I haven’t stopped crying about it. What a beautiful sweet gift. PawBoost was such a huge help in bringing her home along with a couple of other sites. We had over 10,000 people look and share our posts.
I had strangers call to tell me that they had just seen her and others who drove around in the area she was seen in. All of these wonderful people helped us get our Willow back home. I would definitely recommend PawBoost to others who have lost their fur baby. Thank you!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Willow's alert. Her family is overjoyed with her return :)
"Darla was let out in the backyard to go potty in the dog run, but she is so tiny she fits through the smallest opening. Someone didn’t close the run door correctly and she managed to squeeze through and run down the street. I was not home during her escape.
My cousin was taking care of her when she suddenly called me and asked me if I had taken Darla and I said no! I rushed home to go around the neighborhood to try to find her but had no luck. After two days, my husband got the call and they told him they found our dog. They saw the post online so they wanted to meet up to give her to us. I was so excited I almost ran out of the house without shoes in this hot weather!!
PawBoost was definitely helpful to Darla and I! I would recommend PawBoost to a friend because I had a successful outcome and people kept sharing the post. I for one thought I would never see her again but I am so glad I posted on PawBoost otherwise I would have never found her. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. My heart is bursting with joy and happy tears!! Thank you again!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Darla's alert. Social media rocks and it's all because of your sharing :)
"Archie was in our fenced in backyard one morning (my girlfriend let him out to go to the bathroom, and he likes to chill out there for an hour or two before I wake up and let him back in). Our best guess is that a gate wasn't fully latched and he pushed it open.
We drove around for several hours looking to no avail. We started reaching out to friends in the area and hoping perhaps social media may be able to help. A friend of ours said she found a post on PawBoost that looked a lot like Archie. I had never heard of the site before, but I looked at the picture and it was most certainly him.
A very kind family in the neighborhood took him to their home where he hung out with their black lab while they posted and hoped to hear. After contacting them, we were reunited with Archie about two blocks from our house.
I had never heard of PawBoost but now I will be there to help when an alert is issued. This was his first day since we've had him that he wasn't wearing his collar and tags, as I gave him a bath last night and didn't remember to put it back on, so I was feeling very hopeless that I'd ever see my buddy again.
That despondency turned to pure joy when he was found safe and sound. I can't be more thankful to the family and to PawBoost for what is an incredible service."

"My mom saw the senior dog wandering around on our street (she doesn't normally take in strays, but her heart went out to him, as he was blind and wobbly). He was well groomed, so we knew he was part of someone's family. And since he was 99% blind we knew he couldn't have gotten far.
I posted his pictures, and somehow was led to the PawBoost website. By posting him on PawBoost, I had other people comment on tips to help reunite him. Each time the PawBoost post received a comment I got an email alert, which was so helpful. One lady reminded me to go the next day to get him checked for a chip - she listed places that check for free.
Another lady told me to get on Nextdoor and use my address/zip code to post about him. This was ultimately how he was reunited, that evening (within 4 hours of finding him lost) the owner posted on Nextdoor with his pictures, age, and description.
We called the number she listed - I was soooo excited. The owner came around the corner, called his name and his tail instantly wagged. God is good. God spelled backwards is DOG, mans best friend.
I knocked on a few doors because we have nice neighbors, and her house was literally 1 of 2 that didn't answer. She was right around the corner from us. I wouldn't have known what to do, or how to go about finding the owner without the help of this site and everyone's comments!!! Thank you so much."

"We were moving from Erie, PA to Concord, NC and traveling on I-79. When we stopped at a rest stop, Rocco jumped out of our vehicle and bolted across the highway to the Northbound rest stop.
We waited hours and hours crossing the guardrails and busy highway yelling for him and trying to call him back. He never came back. I joined numerous Facebook groups in search of finding him.
The morning after I created a PawBoost alert, I got a couple of calls and one finally lead me to McDonald, PA where he was at an animal shelter!
I would recommend PawBoost! I made a PawBoost alert one night and the very next morning PawBoost helped reunite me with our Rocco!!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Rocco's alert. A special thank you to the Washington County Humane Society for keeping him safe :)
"My partner's family was visiting from France for one week so we decided to take them camping and hiking. Everything was going well during our trip until the last night of our stay. We let Zorya stay in our room which opens up to the backyard while we went to the nearby town to have dinner. After coming home and usually being welcomed by Zorya we found that she was nowhere in the house or the property!
Unbeknown to us, there was a small area with just a small enough hole for her to fit through in the backyard. Starting around 9:00 PM until 1:00 AM, we looked frantically for her throughout the neighborhood. The next day was checkout day, so I looked early in the morning starting from 5:00 AM to see if she was nearby, but still couldn't find her. At this point, I was feeling extremely helpless and hopeless.
Seeing that my physical looking for her wasn't going to cut it I looked online for what could possibly be of help. I stumbled across PawBoost and after posting Zorya as lost, I started to gain hope in seeing her again, one share at a time. Afterward, I decided to call the animal shelter/control and was surprised to hear that they already knew Zorya was missing because of PawBoost.
After leaving later that day, PawBoost's community was heavily active in spreading Zorya's missing alert. After 48 hours of her missing, we were alerted that someone had found her! She was found near a Safeway nearly half a mile from our rental where I had gone with her twice during the trip. The next day, I drove up to Redding alongside my partner, and we were able to rescue her with the help of a kind gentleman.
If it wasn't for PawBoost, I honestly don't think we would have found Zorya in the 48 hours that we did. All in all, I can't thank PawBoost enough, and hopefully, this doesn't happen again, but if it does then I know exactly where to go!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Zorya's alert. She is home safe and sound :)
"Ariat went missing one Wednesday morning. She had been at my brother's for the night and got out of the fence. My whole family drove Greeley all day long and late into the night. Two ladies saw the alert and reported a sighting that got us searching in the right area. I was back on the roads as soon as the sun came up.
We spotted her the next morning and she was so scared by that point she ran from me and I lost her. My heart just completely sank. My mom talked with a police officer that was in the area and gave him her number. At 11:50 the officer called her that he had a sighting called in and I went to the area and was able to catch her.
Once she realized it was me she was so excited! She was very dirty, hungry and thirsty. But she is home, got a bath, a drink, a full tummy and is sleeping on the couch next to me. Without PawBoost I would probably have never found her, because she traveled clear across town, major roads and highways so the sightings helped get us in the right area. We are moving to Texas and I am so happy our family is whole again!"
Spread the good news! Thank you to everyone who shared Ariat's alert. A huge thank you to family that helped drive all over town looking for her and to the police officer that went above and beyond to personally call with a sighting that lead to bringing her home :)
