Basic Information: Lose or find a dog?

Fido Lost Dog at G-mail.com

E-mail your information
including a cell phone number to fidolostdog@gmail.com or bipcar@gmail.com (both one and the same). We often pick up and post these messages while in the park via smartphone and resolve the situation quickly.

How it works...
Not only will your pet be posted on this page, we e-mail 700+ FIDO members for free, the majority of whom live within a few miles of Prospect Park & Downtown Brooklyn. That's a lot of eyes and ears when it comes to lost/found dog posters. While FIDO is not a rescue organization, per se, we will do all that we can to help by posting notices on this page for a reasonable length of time.

Note - There is no way to post your information directly.

Fidobrooklyn Facebook
Post your notice yourself. Much of what we post goes automatically to FIDO Brooklyn Facebook but we encorage you to post your information about lost/found dogs there as well to save time.

-----------------------------------------------------

Before you lose your dog...
Always have ID on your pet's collar at all times... Almost ALL the pets listed below had no ID!

If you lose your tags – replace them immediately! Don't leave them on your "to do" list. Microchips are not infallible. Believe it or not the chip in your dog's body may not match the chip number on the paperwork so neither Home Again or AC&C will have the correct registration number.

Local Adoption/Rescue Organizations/Fostering

Check their "Found Dog" listings as well because if these prove to be abandoned animals, they may need fostering or adoption as well. With persistence, these animals do finds loving homes. But you have to do the work! See our link:
Local Adoption/Rescue/ Rescue Organizations/ Local Shelters/Spay-Neuter

Rescue/Adoption
A warning....

While reputable shelters and adoption organizations attempt to pre-screen their animals, rescue/fostering/adoption requires additional diligence because some dogs may have serious behavioral problems that aren't evident at first glance; in particular AGGRESSION.

Even an abandoned, emaciated dog, once it begins to feel fit, might display a behavior that puts all household members at risk. Good intentions on your part, may not count for anything....

If this proves to be the case, be prepared to do the work necessary to make the dog manageable; consult with a trainer before coming out to the park. See our rescue section for more tips on rescue.

Posters...

80% of the time, a dog lost in Prospect Park attempts to head home.

Post fliers along your route with HUGE letters that people can see from a car; BIG phone Numbers...

Posters should be neon colored poster boards that really get peoples' attention.

Include a description...

When/Where the dog was lost
Where you enter the park - dogs often head home

Include a digital picture if you have one
All Contact information

Date your poster!

You should also...

Definitely post to:

Stolen Dogs/Extortion...

Often a posted reward does help get your dog back. Dogs stolen from parking meters here in Park Slope have been held until a reward is posted - it's a sad fact.

Not uncommon that someone will hold your dog until a reward goes up. Their story will be that they bought the dog from a stranger and only want their money back. If you feel that someone is extorting you for a bigger reward, call the police. If you can make a case that you feel "threatened" then they should help you right away - assign a detective to the case. If the police seem not interested in helping you, then call 311 with the date of the call, the police station called and the name of the officer who refused to act. They will give you a complaint number and someone WILL get back to you.

If your dog is stolen and no one approaches you for a reward, then in all likelihood the dog has been sold - possibly just a few neighborhoods over from where you live. Now is the time to pull out all the stops: go to the press! Nothing like the glare of publicity to make someone put pressure on someone to do the right thing/or rat on them

Brief Word About Lost Cats

Unlike dogs, cats who leave by the front door, generally don't go very far from home but they may remain reclusive nonetheless: hanging out in basement entrances; nearby construction sites or storage areas - any place where the hunting is good

For the cat that escapes into the back yards, posters all the way around the block really helps

Lost Dog Bushwick

My dog escaped the dog park at Maria Hernandez Park on Irving Avenue yesterday (4/25/15 at 4:30 pm) in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Her name is Pickle.

She is approximately 2 years old, 30 lbs. She is brindle black and brown with a white chest and white front paws. I got her from a rescue. They told me she is chihuahua/pit bull mix, but I am often told that she looks like a shepherd. She has a long, dark snout with very big bat ears. She is shy, but likes people when comfortable. She might run away from people or bark at them but she never bites. She was last seen running down Cypress Avenue towards Ridgewood, Queens, but I saw a post on your page that could have been seen near Prospect Park.

Help Them Find Sugar...
Missing in Manhattan

"I am writing on behalf of the search team of FindSugarNYC to see if you would be willing to help with the efforts to find Sugar, a sweet Pitbull who was lost by its dog walker on February 23, 2015 on 26th Street and 3rd Avenue in Manhattan. There is also a chance the dog was given away or sold. It is a tragic story.

The most recent possible spotting was on Friday on 12th St/Avenue B, so we strongly believe she is out there and time is of the essence! There is a $10k reward, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

This is a real New York moment. Hundreds of volunteers are working together to bring Sugar Home.

What to do if the dog is spotted:

- She is shy, please be calm and do not chase, take a photo and send an email findsugarnyc@gmail.com. Even a blurry or poorly lit photo will help us determine whether or not a dog is Sugar. She has very distinct markings.

- Please include the cross-streets or best possible location in your subject line. Adding the time of day / day of spotting is helpful, just in case.

- You can also share the photo to @FindSugarNYC (on facebook & twitter). Please remember to use the #FindSugarNYC tag. Email WVDOG1@aol.com

The family is completely distraught and offering a $10k reward, absolutely NO QUESTIONS Asked. They just want their baby home.

Thank you, in advance, for your help in bringing Sugar home.

Sincerely,

Kerry Freeman
Volunteer, FindSugarNYC

Adopt Ruby...

Ruby is about four or five and weighs about 45 lbs. Formerly known as June at the AC& C shelter, she was an all time favorite of both staff and volunteers! Ruby LOVES her toys!!! She dances with them, prances, throws them up in the air! She also play bows and then bounces in the air when she gets happy .... so cute! But let her tell you herself...

 

"It's me, Ruby. I'm still hoping for a special home. I love my foster home and my foster mom and foster brother and sister alot. I have lots of toys and lots of good food and yummies, and we go for lots of walks and sometimes i get to go all by myself with my foster mom. I love that.

I am really easy to please. Especially after I spent almost 4 months in that place that was kind of dark and even I didn't like that smell. I promise to be a very good girl. I'm not a puppy, so I am smart and know how to wait til we go outside for peepees and I sit really good for a treat and I am told I am a very good kisser.

Please call my foster mom at 347-546-2525 or e-mail Rebound Hounds (reboundhounds@gmail.com) Everyone likes me. And I like everyone, too."


Two Missing Dogs...Bed Stuy

Feb 22 update
We found Sharky and he is home! He was found tied up to a pole in Hempstead, Long Island. The local shelter contacted us. Chopper however is still missing. I think he could possibly be in Long Island as well. Chris

 

I lost my dogs Sharky and Chopper on Monroe st, Brooklyn NY, 11216 on 1/26/15.  Tracked them as far as Classon. Both were traveling together and have on collars. Sharky(white dog) had on a harness and is micro-chipped, his number is 985112003699273. Chopper is a APT puppy and Sharky is a Amer-Bulldog mix

Adopt Kash...

I've been fostering a dog for a friend who recently passed away but now I'm moving and I can't take him with me. His name is Kash, he's a 2yr old pit bull mix. His mom is a red nose and his dad is a blue nose.

 

 

He's a very sweet dog; great around kids and other animals; he was raised around 2 cats. IF you can foster or adopt please contact me

Adopt January...

January is about 1 year old and extremely affectionate. He’s a real lap-cat, and loves belly rubs.  He also has an endearing way of showing that he likes you: by rubbing his forehead or nose against yours!  

Because January has calicivirus--a common respiratory condition, but one that’s contagious to other cats--he’ll need to go to a home without other cats (or with kitty housemates who also have calici).  

.

This sweetie is boarding at One Love Animal Hospital in Boerum Hill until he finds a forever home.  If you have a place in your heart for this dear boy, please contact Anna at algasner@yahoo.com.

Adopt Rocket...

Located in Ft Greene, this distinguished 12 year old Boston Terrier is looking for a loving home because his mom is now a single mom and unable to take good care of him. He is a quiet but energetic 12 year old, with a huge personality that charms everyone he meets. He loves napping, fetching, long hikes, eating, snoring, and sleeping on his monkey, George. He would be happiest in a quiet home with owners that are around a lot. He rarely barks, is in great health, and gets a long well with other dogs.

Please reach out to Meghan Guthrie guthrie.meghan@gmail.com with questions and interest

Found Doggie - Gates & Greene

A neighbor found a super sweet dog tonight, and I unfortunately cannot take her, so am trying all avenues to find someone to help. 

She's a pitbull, not sure on age, maybe 2/3, but looks like she might have just had pups. She was very sweet with people and our dog. She's about 30lbs of skin and bones, but might get to 40 once she starts getting some meat on her bones. She was definitely hungry and seemed very scared. We first saw and tried to get her on Gates and Greene, but ran away, and she was found by Speedy Romeo on Classon.

They suggested you might be able to email your membership to seeing anyone knows of a lost dog or if anyone is available for fostering. Please let me know.

Adopt Jamie...

Jamie is a pit mix about 7 years old and 50 lbs and she's extremely affectionate and friendly with all people. This silly baby is a total mush, and seems to think that she’s a lapdog!  She lives for hugs & kisses.  Jamie is a couch-potato kind of a gal: she’s definitely not your new jogging partner, but will happily curl up at your feet while you watch a flick or write your blog!

(Took about a month but Jamie found a home)


What you should know about Adoption/Rescue/Rescue Organizations

I am so happy to let you know that the Hamilton Dog House shelter received our knitted and crocheted crate liners for cats today. Everyone seems to be very appreciative, including Sean and the cats! The ladies from our Park Slope Knitting Circle worked inspiringly 2 Saturday afternoons, and all together we have made 10 crate liners ( all machine washable!). It was a pure joy working on this project, for everyone involved in it is an animal lover and a cat or a dog (or both!) owner! Olga
