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 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

Thank you again. Christina

Found Dog - Fort Greene...

Yesterday morning we found an abandoned dog tied to a bench in Fort Greene Park. Sean Casey & BARC couldn't take him so he's staying with me for now.

Adopt Morey...
His name is Morey and he is a beautiful, sweet 3 yr-old pit bull who gets along with other dogs and is energetic and very people and child friendly. He lives in Queens with my colleague’s cousin and his family, who have raised him since puppyhood. Unfortunately, the father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s which is becoming progressively worse, and his family is concerned for Morey’s welfare and safety as the father becomes less aware of his actions and surroundings (e.g. opening the door and letting the dog out and not remembering). This is the reason they need to find Morey a new home.

(Returned home on his own.)

Adopt This Abandoned Puppy Pittie

Our friends found him last night, running around the streets of Prospect Heights filthy as can be. He's obviously been used for some kind of fighting as he had lots of nicks and cuts on his face, head and neck. Our guess is that he was tested to fight but was not aggressive enough and was consequently just dumped in the street.

He is an absolute LOVE and is super friendly with all people. However, he seems to be very aggressive toward and scared of other dogs (ours included). He's very young (maybe 4 months?. His licks can be very puppyish and, therefore, accidentally nippy. He's obedient and knows "SIT" and "DOWN" and will happily do anything you want to make you proud. Without a behavioral test we're not sure if he's truly aggressive or just anxious and scared (right now I'm leaning toward the latter) of other dogs.

Took him to the vet today and he's heartworm free and up to date on his rabies and booster shots. He needs to be neutered and microchipped so we're hoping to get this done through the ASPCA.

We have lined up some potential other fosters for the coming week or so. But we need help finding a home, a rescue or a long-term foster for this beautiful boy.

This morning she slipped her harness and ran off in Bushwick, Brooklyn at the intersection of Wyckoff and Stanhope Streets. Myritza was wearing a blue nylon collar without tags.

Found Dog - Nethermead

Found this dog in the Nethermead Sunday morning, March 2, during off leash (just before 9am), running loose with leash and collars on him, rabies tag but no ID. Waited and asked around for a while.

Very good/playful with other dogs, skittish with people, but very sweet. The vet on the tag is not open Sundays. Unfortunately, I have 2 dogs, one is not good with him.

Adopt Barnaby...

Barnabyis a 1-year old Cardigan Corgi mix (born 10/31/2012). Although he is experiencing severe separation anxiety, he is a very fun dog! He has a playful personality, but loves to cuddle up and sleep most of the day after a little bit of play time.

He needs someone with the time and patience to work through his separation issues. He's great with kids (even small ones!), and is up-to-date on shots though he is coming due on boosters. He's a very healthy dog, and the only needs he has are booties for walking around in the snow - his paws are incredibly sensitive to the snow and salt.

She's about 1 1/2 years old and can be nervous around strangers.

If you see her, please do NOT chase her. Have a seat if possible, avoid eye contact, and see if she will come to you. Her mom is out of town and out of her mind with worry, and her bio sisters would also like to see her back where she belongs.

Please SHARE and call 347-451-3148 or 256-585-8515 with any information.

Whiskey The Cat Needs A Home

This demure, calm, intelligent cat is looking for a new home. Last spring his owner abandoned him. Since then, I have been caring for him in our yard. With the collective help of this community (providing carrier, advice, rescue sponsor, foster volunteer), Whiskey made it to the vet yesterday and is in a foster home.

But, he needs a permanent residence. Whiskey was so loving and calm in his new surroundings, even purring at the vet. He is up to date in shots and has been given a clean bill of health. If you'd like to meet him, he has a flexible schedule. He is a true companion who will be devoted.

Currently at Animal Care & Control: She is being named ADAH for reference purposes. We hope to have a picture shortly.

The back story...
I found an abandoned dog tonight, tied up to a piece of construction equipment, right by the Peninsula, off the Nethermead. She was definitely abandoned because whomever left her there with an old shirt and a bag of kibble.

THE DOG: Turned out to be female, Shepherd/Pit mix but she does NOT have the heavily-muscled Pit build. Approx 35 lbs. The ears were clipped. Definitely NOT vicious or a fighting dog though. My dogs, Phoenix and Stetson, found her before I did and he allowed them to approach and sniff. A fighting dog would have gone after them right then and there. My cellphone went dead before I had a chance to take a picture.

STATUS: I was able to locate a police van in the park and the officers eventually took her to AC&C on Linden Blvd. Since they did not mention she was micro-chipped when they got back to me, I'm assuming she was not. These three officers who assisted with the situation tonight were SUPER. They stood out in the rain with me for over an hour, let me borrow their cell-phones, called Sean Casey (no space left), called Barc in Williamsburg - really did everything I asked of them and more. Just feel like their efforts really need to be acknowledged. Nice to know these three are out there.

I know this is a total LONG SHOT, asking people to reach out for dog, sight-unseen, but I figured I'd try to leverage all the good will that exists amongst the dog owners in Prospect Park and turn a really sad story into one with a happy ending. It IS the holiday season after all.




Missing Dog - South Slope

FIDO Note - this dog appears to be living in prospect park last seen near band shell not too long ago.

I live on 16th Street and 7th avenue and this morning my fearful dog, Casey, broke free on our walk and ran away. She is a black shepherd mix, around 50 pounds with brown pays and legs. She was last seen wearing a black collar and pulling a green leash. We just adopted her from Sean Casey animal rescue and don't have tags yet.

She has been a feral dog before and has spent some time living in Greenwood Cemetery. She is very emotionally and mentally damaged and we desperately want to find her so we can get her back on her medication. it's very likely that she's gone back to Greenwood.

We would love it if you could post this to your site and have anyone with any information, sightings, etc call us at 347-587-0470. Thank you!

Remember Vivi, the Whippet?

She 's still missing...
Six years ago she escaped from her crate at Kennedy Airport and disappeared into the environs of Queens and possibly beyond.

If you adopted her, or know anything however related, please call 917 647 4848

Found Dog - Prospect Park

This dog was found near the Grecian Shelter this morning(3/8, 9:30 am). Beagle/mix...He is wearing a green harness with a red rabies vaccination tag. I contacted the vet on the tag. He reports the owner as "Steven Grecco" spelling?? The contact info the vet had for the owner was 4 years old and no longer current. I currently have the dog at the Tennis House.

Thanks, P-jPark just notified us that the owner picked the dog up at the Tennis House (Owner picked him upo the same day.)


Found Dog -Park Slope...


I just found a cute female light brown dog wearing black collar on 3rd street and PPW. She's home safe with me for the night, but I would love to reunite her with her owner. I'm sure he or she is worried. (reunited)


Found Puggle/Pug - Ditmas

Just found this sweet young male dog on Ave. H that seemed to have come from either Rugby or Argyle (though not sure how long he was wondering for so could be from farther) The dog is a young male pug/puggle, and is wearing a "bad to the bone" collar, but unfortunately, no ID tags.

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.
(The original rescue group found him at AC&C but they've decided to keep him on the premises where he'll be a pet and companion dog.)

Lost Cat - South Slope

Lost 7 year old male - orange and white cat in South Slope, Brooklyn. House cat lost on 2/8 by 6th Avenue and 18th Street. He has a 1/2 tail.
(He was found trapped in a neighbor's wall - got through a crawl space.)


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.

Tigger Is Lost – Manhattan

Tigger is about a year old, 50ish lb lab/pit mix. He has a brindle coat with a white chest and a white strip up his nose. One of his ears is ripped from an injury he sustained pre-adoption. We’re constantly checking all the shelters on a daily basis. We’ve postered all of Midtown Manhattan. He is microchipped so if anyone finds him, bring him to the nearest vet, hospital, shelter, etc. and they will contact us immediately.

(He was found a month later)

Found Husky - Bushwick

Collar but no tag. He is in good condition and seems young. We have a big dog and cat and so can't foster him. Would love to find his owner!
Thanks for any help.
(FIDObrooklyn Facebook and lost dog postings did the trick)


Lost Dog - Downtown Bklyn

This sweet dog ran out of Fort Greene Park this morning. Last seen in vicinity of Flatbush and Willoughby. She (Trixie) is microchipped, but was not wearing an identification tag or her license (she is licensed). Her collar has a rabies tag.

(The owners have her back)



Found Shihtzu Doggie

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)

Found Dog - Cobble Hill


We found a maltese mix? dog last night at 2am near Henry and Warren in Cobble hill. Attached are a couple photos. no tags or id, was wearing a little green sweater

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 Frenchie - Clinton Hill/


I found the French Bulldog in the attached photo at about 9:45 this morning. She was running north from Myrtle Ave. on Washington, wearing a red harness and a chain link leash. I thought I would encounter someone frantically looking for the dog that got away from them, but nothing. The vet said that she is microchipped, but it is not registered. (She found the owner)

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. It's larger than a chihuahua and it doesn't bark. Owner must verify color of collar and other distinguishing features that only the owner would know.

(he took dog back to where he found it. The dog led him to its home)


Missing Dog - last seen near 9th Street Path by Ball Fields.

Goes by the name of Chauncy. Black and tan shepherd mix weighing maybe 30-40 lbs. He may have ID on his collar. He comes (Made it home on his own)

Found Dog - Park Slope

Found shaggy black dog, maybe thirty lbs, corner of Butler & 4th Ave about 5pm. No ID. Cold and shivering. Red collar and black leash.

The person who found this dog has placed him with Sean Casey. (Thanks to a fidobrooklyn Facebook tip, Sean followed through on a lost dog poster. He's back home)

Missing Dog - Ditmas...

Neighbor's dog, JP, went missing this afternoon. JP is small (about 14 pounds) with short beige hair and might be wearing a beige Sherpa coat.

JP was last seen between Ditmas and Dorchester around East 18th or East 19th, around 4 and 4:30pm, and she is especially worried because he has limited vision. (Posters did the trick)


Found Dog - Prospect Heights...


I found this little boy in Prospect Heights without a collar tonight!! Whitish Terrier type with black patch over left eye and ears. Asked around but couldn't find anyone who recognized him, so I brought him home but would love to find his owner ASAP!
(Took a couple of days - posters did the trick)


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
