++ ADD YOUR LOST PET DETAILS AND GET ACTIVE PET ALERT TODAY! ++

We were on our way home when we stopped at a traffic light on a very busy intersection. It was dark but we could see a black dog in the middle of the road running from car to car. One car looked like it was stopping.

We pulled up and the other driver opened her door to talk to the dog. When she did, the dog jumped right over her and into her back seat. We asked the young lady if it was her dog and it wasn't, but she was concerned about her getting hit. We offered to take the dog and find her owner since she wasn't from the area.

She immediately jumped onto the couch when we got home which indicated to us she was definitely used to being inside. She had a collar with a rabies tag and another tag with a phone number. My daughter called the phone numbers, but there was no answer.

My daughter posted pictures of her on her Facebook page asking for people to share them. Since I am already a member of this community, I took one of the pictures and created a found alert. Within moments of posting it, people began sharing it and wishing us luck.

Within 30 minutes, a woman called my cell and told me she had the phone number of the owner. She'd seen the girl frantically putting up flyers for a lost black lab with a purple collar. I then called the girl and she was out looking for her dog - a short distance from my home. She drove to my home and when I opened up the garage it was immediately obvious that this was her dog.

I ABSOLUTELY recommend them. It's a quick and easy way to capture details about a lost or found pet. It's also an efficient and proven method to get notifications to a large pool of people who we already know are interested in helping.

It was less than an hour from the time we found Sadie Mae until the time she was reunited with her owner. And thank goodness, because she would have had a very cold, wet, snowy, and scary night on her own.



One evening, my neighbor alerted me to a cat in their backyard. I immediately posted on Nextdoor, before heading to my neighbor's with my rescue crate. Thankfully, the kitty was very friendly and I was able to easily pick it up and get it safely in the crate. I took the kitty home and set up my guest bathroom with a litter box, bed, food, and water.

I took several photos of the kitty and then updated Nextdoor as well as posted on there. Initially, no one responded to either. The kitty stayed the night in my guest bathroom. The following day, I took the kitty to my former vet to be scanned, but no chip was found.

I then posted signs in my complex that I had found a cat and included my phone number. I was going out of town so a friend held onto the kitty for me while we searched for its an owner.

The next day, a gentleman who had seen my signs contacted me about his lost kitty. The description was similar but his kitty was male and the kitty I found was female. I suggested that he post on several social media sites including them.

We exchanged pictures and based on other unique characteristics realized that the kitty I had found which we thought was female, was, in fact, a MALE and his boy! I was thrilled! I put him in touch with my friend and they were able to coordinate the reunion!

I would absolutely recommend them because it allows you to reach more viewers and cast your net wider than you could have otherwise.



Colt was outside with my husband when he chased something into the woods. He refused to come when called, which was very unusual. Colt does have somewhat of a fear of men and with me being at work, he would not come to my husband.

Colt was found about 10 miles from home. Someone from Columbus had called the person that found Colt and told her to check there. The lady checked and saw it was Colt.

they contacted me with the email the lady had sent. I called her and sent her proof of pictures and she told me where to locate her. Once Colt saw me, the lady was assured that he was mine.

I would definitely recommend this site to anyone that has lost their pet. We had given up all hope after 2 weeks when the reunion came. What a fantastic Christmas present. I cannot thank the lady or your website enough for all of your help.
