Alert Animal Control Officer Uses Pet FBI Database and Avoids a Stay at the Pound

Lost dog recovered by Columbus animal control and Pet FBI database

Greta happily reunited with her family

Greta went missing in Columbus, OH, Pet FBI’s hometown. Since we have been active here since 1998, we are widely used and trusted, which leads to quick recoveries, especially since Franklin County  Animal Control often uses our database and Pet FBI Facebook Ohio page to look for matches.

Greta’s family posted on the Pet FBI database and within an hour of posting, a tip came in that she had traveled east and was spotted in a neighborhood known as Forest Park. Not long after that Animal Control Officer Mary heard a call that was dispatched to that area and provided Greta’s number to the officer that picked her up. Since Mary acted so quickly Greta avoided going to Franklin County Dog Shelter  and was dropped off directly at home!

We wish all animal control agencies and shelters would take advantage of our free, easy to use database so that more lost pets could be reunited quickly and efficiently.  If you are reading this, please contact your local shelter and ask them to visit petfbi.org to see how it can help them.
