Remi went missing in a rural area and his family was worried sick because it was hunting season and Remi could be mistaken for a deer! They posted to our Pet FBI Ohio Facebook page.
Days later he ended up in a Humane Society shelter in Madison County, many miles away and was posted on their Facebook page as a found dog. Thanks to Amanda, one of Pet FBI Ohio Facebook’s “special agents”, she connected the two just hours later and Remi is back home safe.
Note: Pet FBI “Special Agents” are unofficial volunteers who cross-post and cross-check lost and found reports and have been responsible for many happy reunions. You can act as a special agent for your area, too!
1. Dogs can travel fast and far, Check for reports well beyond your immediate area.
2. Use as many sources of information as you can to post and search lost and found reports. Ideally everybody should post to a single, central, efficiently searchable database like PetFBI.org. Realistically, you need to cast a wide net and research various Facebook pages, Craigslist and other online resources as suggested on Pet FBI’s advice page.
