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

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
!

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 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!



Jamie can be aggressive with other dogs (or at least food aggressive, from the little we know of her history) so she’ll do best in a home without other dogs or with an experienced owner.  Jamie is boarding at One Love Animal Hospital in Boerum Hill until she finds a forever home.  If you have a place in your heart for this dear girl, please contact Anna at algasner@yahoo.com.

1/19/15
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 Kitten/for adoption

Not the tabby from 01/08/15

Jordan's Pet Care reports that one of their clients found a small cat today on 15th Street near 5th Ave. She believes the cat is a female but is not 100% sure. The cat was wearing a collar but has no tags and no microchip. She thinks she is about 5 months old and says she is SUPER sweet and lovable.

She's in foster care at the moment...

Unfortunately our client cannot keep the kitten so she is in urgent need of a foster or at least someone to house her for several days until we can find more permanent placement for her or possibly reunite her with her family (assuming she has one from the collar).

If anyone is available/interested please email jordan@jordanspetcare.com or call 347-450-8405.

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!

Ruby walks very nicely on the leash and checks in often. She is living with two other dogs in her foster home and gets along wonderfully with them. However, she will need intros with another dog, to make sure everyone gets along. She is also with cats, but we think she would do best in a cat-free home.  Ruby is a very lovable girl who adores her humans and enjoys just hanging with them.  She is good with strangers also.  Anyone who gets Ruby is truly getting a wonderful companion for life!

Ruby is very responsive  to training and she even goes potty on command.  Because she was a stray and at the shelter for a long time, it is best if she goes to an experienced home who can continue with her training. She is up to date on her shots and is spayed.

Contact reboundhounds@gmail.com or call Barbara at 347-546-2525 for a meet and greet.

Lost Cat - South Slope


Our one-year-old female tabby cat Susie escaped out the front door of our house on 15th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue on January 1st.    She is grey, tan and white and somewhat on the small side.  She is spayed and microchipped.  

(Susie walked through the door a week later as if nothing happened.)

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.

Please help! His name is Dude, a mix breed of Shih Tzu and Terrier. His microchip# is 900164000629713. He was wearing a blue collar.

He got away from us late last night near the Grand Army Plaza entrance. He ran as far as he could down East Dr for about 200 ft and turned left into the side bush, that’s where we lost track of him. We looked around the north east part of the park for hours but still no luck.

Lost Dog – Windsor Terrace…

First spotted on Prospect Avenue, just north of the Seeley overpass about 9 pm.

Later a neighbor named Doug explained that his son was visiting from California, and Doug, who is disabled, had tripped and fallen while walking the dog and the dog had run off. He next spotted her on McDonald Avenue, but again she ran off before he could get close.

Dog is a Golden Retriever type who answers to the name of "Dabitha." 

If anyone runs into her, call Doug at 718 633 2375. He lives in 202 Seeley, one of the large apartment buildings on Seeley Street. Additional contact is Alex: 917-701-5354

Lost Chihuahua - Grand Army Plaza

HELP! Our newly adopted 1 1/2. yr old 6 lb. golden brown chihuahua ran away when his leash was dropped. He was last seen around 7:45 pm. on Flatbush running towards the Prospect Park, across from the fountain. He has on a green /white sweater, with a black retractable lease. He is chipped but has no collar. He has kennel cough and needs medicine. His name is Angelo, but we are not sure how well he knows his name since we just named him this morning. Our girls, 11 & 7, are heartbroken (so are Mom & Dad).

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!

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

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

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
