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.

Brief word about lost cats...


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

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

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.

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

His name is Parker, he’s a brown pit bull. Male, around four years old One blue eye and one brown eye. Unfortunately he's not microchipped.  The cable team came into my house and left the all the doors open while I wasn’t home and the dog got out.  He was last seen in Brooklyn, Irving and Hasley corner.

Lost Maltese - Prospect Hts


The love of my life has disappeared. I’m at Sterling Place and Nostrand Ave. She’s a white Maltese, 8 years old, shaggy cut, answers (sometimes) to “Zoe.” Blue collar. Microchipped, tagged, etc. If there’s anything you can do to help me get her back I’d be grateful forever. I’ve set a $500 reward. (The reward produced the desired result - they have her back)



Adopt Quincy...

Remember this guy from a month ago?

This is Quincy. He was found wondering the streets in Crown Heights nearly a month ago and needs a permanent home (or foster during the holidays since we have no place for him to stay after December 22nd). Quincy is super sweet, affectionate and really smart. He is fully housebroken, crate trained (although at night, he likes to snuggle in bed), and is good on the leash. He is also good with other dogs. Quincy is about a year old, is neutered and up to date with shots.

He is currently staying at one of our walker's home so we really know his temperament. He is a great guy and we are desperate to find him a real home for the holidays.

If he is adopted or foster in our service area, HouseBroken will walk him for free. If you want to meet or learn more about Quincy, please call us at 718-622-0600 or email us at info@HouseBrokenNY.com.

Please help us by sharing his information.

Found Male Tuxedo Kitty


Big and friendly. Found on 4th Ave and Union in Brooklyn, shop owner said he'd been there a few days.  He seems sweet and scared of the outdoor world, like a lost kitty, definitely not feral.


Contact motleymuttspetrescue@gmail.com if you think you might know him !  We think he has owners out there somewhere.  The question is just whether they lost him or abandoned him.

Adopt Rizzo...

Rizzo is an 8 yr. old beautiful female Pit Bull, who belongs to my stepson. We have been dog sitting her for 3 1/2 months, because our 3 month old grandson was born with Pulmonary Hypertension and is breathing through a tube inserted into his trachea. Rizzo needs a new home, as we can no longer care for her and she cannot return to her owner due to the baby's difficulty breathing, for fear of the dog's hair getting into his trachea, causing a life threatening situation.

Rizzo is a perfect watch dog and is very sweet and loving with the family who cares for her. She does bark when she is startled by strangers in small spaces (e.g. elevators) and when she encounters large dogs.

Any help that you can provide would be life-saving for Rizzo and a great service for our family. We live in the Kensington section of Brooklyn.

Found Chihuahua-E Williamsburg


Last night I found a small white and tan chihuahua in East Williamsburg around 7pm. Someone, possibly his owner, was chasing him near Olive and Metropolitan Ave when I joined in helping. He was running with a leash dragging behind him. He did not have tags or a microchip. I was on my bike and kept up with him until I was able to catch him however at that point the original person chasing him was no longer in the vicinity and I couldn't locate him. He is approximately 1 year old. Please email ASAP if you know his owner!

Lost Dog - Prospect Park

His name is Ringo! He's ~50lbs, collie mix, mostly tan body with white chest and forearms. He got away from his walker! Was last seen around Eastern Parkway/Washington Ave, 7pm or so last night. He's a friendly dog but may be scared.m May not have tags, but is chipped.

If anyone sees him, please call Mike at (202) 257-5901


We had an alert late morning about a loose dog... There is a lost black Labrador running around the park. I tried to catch it but can't get close enough. Would appreciate it if you could put the word out.

A later notice said he was back and forth between park circle and the peninsula and quite panicked.

Found chihuahua-Flatbush/Ditmas

I found a chihuahua in Flatbush/Ditmas Park less than two weeks ago. It appears that he has been on the loose for at least a few days before that. I had him vetted, and he has no health conditions, is not fixed, and does not have a microchip. He is a light tan, almost white color, and is very small. One noticeable feature about him is that he only has one testicle. He is approximately 5 years old. He is currently with a foster parent through Animal Haven, but we are still trying to track down his owners. (Took a while but managed to find the owners)

Found Dog - Windsor Terrace

I found this dog Tuesday morning in the parking lot of
Brooklyn Prospect Charter School - Ft. Hamilton Parkway between E. 2nd and E. 3rd St. She followed me home.

I took her to Sean Casey Animal Rescue but they had no room. We had her scanned for a microchip but she did not have one.

I hope that she has a home to go to. We have found a temporary foster home and are reaching out to no-kill shelters. I have cced the gentleman who is fostering the dog for now (eduponc@gmail.com)

Found Dog...

This very scared little guy was caught on Clarkson and Flatbush. He's
pretty filthy, and we're guessing he's been outside for a while, but we
actually have no idea.

We're calling him Toto.

He doesn't have any identifying info, but he's a total sweetheart. We've got him crated in our basement and neighbors are taking turns walking him, but we need to either find his home or find him a new home

Missing a Cat? Park Slope

Adopt Toby

Toby is a healthy two-year old, neutered male Dachshund up for adoption. He was relinquished, by the owner, to One Love Animal Hospital in Boerum Hill. The veterinarians, technicians and staff have taken care of Toby since his relinquish and I (one of the vet tech’s), am currently fostering Toby in my home and exposing him to socializing, housebreaking (90%) and learning basic commands.



Toby is a quintessential Dachshund and an adopter should have experience or knowledge of the personality of this delightful breed. He can be snippy (or so his former owner said) but since coming to coming into my home I have yet to witness this. He loves to snuggle on the lap. He is playful, loves to fetch balls, loves belly rubs, and gets along with other dogs, (possibly cats). He would do well in a household with older children and with someone who is home during the day.

For further information, please contact Elena at 917 837 4869 or email emccalla2@gmail.com

Found Female Chihuahua - Kensington

Saturday morning (around 9:30am on 10/19/14) I found a female Chihuahua in my? neighborhood on Ocean Ave and Albemarle Road. No collar, no microchip. I took her to my dog's vet and she had some minor injuries but is physically okay now.

Some basic details:
Adult female (maybe 2-4 years), brown with tan markings, weighs about 5 pounds, a bit shy around us humans but still very sweet and becoming pretty attached to my dog, Jaba. No signs of abuse or neglect.

My fiance and I will continue to care for her until we can reunite her with her people. If that doesn't happen, we will find a safe and happy home for her.

Please contact me:
email: amungaro@gmail.com

Found Rottie - Greenpoint

Found this pretty girl tied to a tree yesterday on Provost St. Brought her home for the night but cannot keep her. Anyone looking for a sweetie, she just wants to be loved. Let me know otherwise I'll be making a trip to North Shore.

See Debbie's posting on fidobrooklyn facebook

Adopt Jack...

We’re moving to Denver this coming week for a job, and have just been warned by our vet that it’s very risky to bring our Mastiff/Pitt/Boxer mix, Jack, because there’s a county-wide ban on pit bulls in Denver. She’s lived there in the past and knows horror stories of dogs being taken from their owners on the spot… we just can’t risk that with our sweetheart, Jack.

He’s a 9 yr old Mastiff/Boxer/Pit mix, 68 lbs., all shots up to date. He's a total sweetheart, great with kids, sleeps 20 hours a day, and loves to take walks and go hiking. He’s not a barker, nor does he dig or chew his owner's belongings.

ontact: clark_t_a@msn.com He likes other dogs, but has never lived with another animal so should probably be the only pet in the home.

I can be reached at the cell below or via email… thank you!


Found Dog - Carroll Gardens

Found a very petite white pit/terrier mix with brindle spots late Friday night near the corner of Huntington & Smith Streets in Carroll Gardens. She was wearing a very small, thin pale pink colllar with crystal beads, no tags and is not microchipped. Our vet estimates that she is about 3. She weighs 22 lbs at present but is a little underweight.



She is very sweet, and we are trying to find her original owners (if they are nice people and not the reason she is emaciated and was covered in urine burns and being choked by her too small collar) or rehome her with another lovely family as we have a special needs dog and 15 month old toddler in a small apartment and both work full time.

If you could please post and/or pass along that would be great, she is really a peach!


Dog Boarding Needed…

I must re-home my dog Bou, a Dilute Red Merle Catahoula (spayed female) adopted as a 3 month old puppy in 2009.

I lost my apt in Fort Greene; I have a temporary place to stay, but my friend's landlord will not allow dogs in any shape or form. I would love to find a low-cost in-home boarding situation for her for 1-3 months until I get myself a dog-friendly apartment.

Bou is c. 50/lbs, and housebroken. She is generally a low-key dog, but will bark if someone comes up to me from behind. She does not bite, however. She likes boy dogs but tends to bark at girl dogs. She lived happily with a kitten and also was friendly with the semi-feral cat colony on my old street in Fort Greene.

Catahoula Rescue, Inc will try and help me, but they won't be able to find a place soon enough. Please consider taking my dog Bou, or finding a boarding situation for her. In all my years of pet ownership and rescue, I have never given up a dog, and I hope this will not be the first.

Sincerely, and Thank you,

Found Dog - Boerum Hill

I rescued a small dog this morning on 3rd and Bergen from almost being hit by a car. I've called around and had him checked out at a vet clinic. No chip. Wondering if anyone has been looking for this guy. The vet said he has been on the street around a month or so. Age 4-5 13lbs. He is currently at a groomers getting a bath and a shave. His coat is really matted and he smelled like a skunk. :)

Adopt Freckles...

I'm giving my dog, Freckles, up for adoption, due to permanent work and travel constraints. Looking for a home, ideally with a back yard, as she is a bigger dog and needs exercise.

She is an adorable mini-Aussie/lab mix. Just under 2 years old. 47 pounds. Has been spayed, and is up-to-date on all her shots/vaccines, including six months of heart-worm, tick and flea prevention.

She has an incredible personality, and is literally the sweetest dog on the planet. She loves everybody, is great with children, and is extremely well tempered, however she has a lot of energy she needs to get out (still in that puppy phase), hence the need for a backyard, or lots of runs in a dog park.

She was a rescue dog adopted at 8 weeks old, and she's been given a lot of love, so I am looking for the right fit for her next chapter.

Please contact me if interested. My only criteria is that she finds the best home possible.

Missing Cat - Windsor Terrace
Our 4 year old, larger cat, Lexington, escaped yesterday and has not came back. He is yellow and white tabby with an all white belly. We live close to Windsor Terrace/Kensington on 12th Ave between Chester and Dahill and I'm sure he didn't go far. I'm thinking that someone may have noticed him in their back yard and took him in. If anyone has seen our kitty please let me know.

He is microchipped but we haven't heard anything yet. We check with Sean Casey and they haven't had anyone bring him in either. We are very worried. If anyone has seen or sees Lexington, please either email or give me a call 414-510-2874.

Lost Cat - P Park South

I'm still in search of my cat, who may have wandered into Prospect Park at the souh end a couple of weeks ago, and who knows from there if indeed it was him who was spotted. Here are some details:

- Claude is a male gray & white cat about 7 years old
- He was last seen wearing a black nylon collar with a red bell and green ID tag
- He has a black spot on his nose
- He has a gray chin
- He has an all gray tail with a white rump area (meaning his tail stands out as all gray)

I have been roaming the streets for almost 4 weeks now looking for him and am thinking that perhaps the larger public might be able to help. When I put up flyers, they are almost immediately taken down, so I don't know how else to get the word out. We believe that he is still out there. I appreciate any help you might be able to provide.

Emails, texts or calls are fine. We will follow up on all leads. I can be reached at 917-723-3324, my husband at 347-661-4376. tumbleweed11218@gmail.com

Lost Dog - Park Slope

My roommate lost her dog yesterday early afternoon- somewhere between the Methodist Hospital and Prospect Park. She's a brownish Maltese type. Her name is Lola, she's unspayed & 2 years old. A very sweet little pup.

(Apparently an EMS worker picked her up (possibly one of the ems coming for my roommate), and passed her around for the week & ended up tracking her with her microchip. She got an ems jacket, very cute.)

My friend found a pit puppy in our neighborhood tied up today,Monday, Nov 24th, and is currently watching her. She was found in Boerum Hill, she's about 3-4 months old, female Pitbull, White with Fawn markings, patch over left eye. She was wearing a pink harness when found.

Lost Dog - Park Slope

Our dog, Penny Jean ran out of the apartment this morning around 11:30 am. We have been looking around the neighborhood for her since then, but to no avail. We live at 463 8th street between 7th and 8th avenue in Park Slope. Penny has a very high energy, sweet and playful disposition. Her favorite game is to be chased, so she might not be receptive to "being caught" but approaching her gently should allow someone to hold her. She is not a bite risk, even if being held.

(They have her back, hanks to Sean Casey Animal Rescue.)


Lost Dog - Crown Hts/Bed Stuy

He slipped his leash and ran South on Nostrand from Quincy. His name is Clifford and he’s a tan Corgi Mix with white around eyes and muzzle.

Would really appreciate if you could help get the word out ASAP, another young woman (Victoria) took him in while I said I'd try to reach out and see if I had any leads w/ these pictures. (He's been adopted)

Female Bull Mastiff "Pup" for Adoption

We are looking for a new home for our adorable Bullmastiff Puppy, Maxine. She is very sweet and loving and would be really great in a single dog household. She gets along well with dogs outside our house, but has become very territorial and is having conflicts with our other dogs.

She is a beautiful 15 moths old female. Fawn colored. Spayed and microchipped and up to date on all vaccines. She is house broken and has basic obedience. She responds very well to positive reinforced training and is very smart.

She is great with kids. She is sometimes a stand offish with new adults, and quite protective of our house and property. We work from home, so she is used to having us around a lot. We do leave her for 3-4 hrs easily though. (Bull Mastiff rescue agreed to take her)

Lost dog - Kensington/Ditmas

Our newly adopted rescue medium size dog escaped while on a walk, vicinity of Slocum and Stratford Rd. Mixed breed, short hair, tan with white paws, no ID. Wearing a tan collar and dragging a blue retractable leash. Thanks for any help you can give. pix to follow.

Adopt Alice...

"Alice" is a sweet, playful and loving blue-nose bull terrier (pit bull mix) -- She's in great health, had all her shots and is spayed. Her "Dad" lost his job and asked me to help find her a new home - he can't afford to keep her. She adores humans but is not a superstar with cats or other dogs - best for her to be with a family of humans. $100 adoption fee and references required. She's a treasure.


Adopted from Sean Casey - Brooklyn helps its own.

One of our walkers spotted a loose dog, and we managed to wrangle her and bring her to the office. She's a timid little shih-tzu. Very sweet. Clean ears and coat and has some extra meat on her ribs, so we think she's loved by someone (they located the owners)

Two Dogs, Two Cats For Adoption/ Foster
Due to death of owner.

My name is Cory, Manager at Park Slope Veterinary Care. One of our very good clients passed away suddenly and has left behind 2 dogs and 2 cats that need homes/ foster care urgently.

Thanks to efforts of FIDObrooklyn Facebook followers, the two senior dogs and the two cats whose owner passed away have been placed with homes and foster homes...

Quoting from Lisa Guido's posts on our pages.

Lisa Guido I drove the dogs to White Plains today to meet up w this terrific woman who is taking them home to Massachsets. She specializes in senior adoptions, such a kind thing to do! There were a couple of rescue groups who pieced this together, will post when I can get the names right. Both cats are placed, I'm told. Poor old babies, I'm glad they're landing with good caring experienced people.

FIDO - Fellowship in the Interest of Dogs and their Owners Twenty Paws Rescue and SNARR Animal Rescue Northeast coordinated these adoptions. The dogs left today (as a pair!) to their new permanent home; one cat found a permanent home and the other is in a foster with them possibly adopting her. Just got that directly from the son of the deceased lady, who also writes, "Thank you everyone for what you guys have done for me and my family it means a great deal to us. Thanks again for everything."

The cats...


1st - Baby is a 10 year old spayed female domestic with calico coloring. She is overdue on vaccines and has a history of asthma. This condition seems easily maintained.




2nd - Billi is a 9 year old spayed female domestic mostly black and white. No major medical history noted. Overdue on vaccines

The dogs...


3rd - Liberty is a 12 year old spayed female mix. About 52 lb. Some history of Urinary Track Infections. Up to date on vaccines. Goes to the bathroom outdoors

( Nina & Liberty adopted as a pair)

4th - Nena is a 10 year old spayed female lab mix about 130lb. No major health issues. Da2p up to date. Rabies vaccine due. Goes outdoors and on wee wee pads indoors.

I believe that there are no major behavioral issues with any of the animals. The dogs have been very sweet. They are not usually around kids so I do not know about that. They are all used to cats and dogs since they live together.

Found White Female Dog Near E. 59th Street Brooklyn

On Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, I found a sweet small white female dog with curly hair which is yellowish brown dark around the paws and mouth. Not sure of the breed butit may be a Bichon Poo.

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
