Lost Dog Success Story from Kelley K.

Dear Fido Finder,

In January '05, a visiting Basenji who had been with my husband and me in Seattle WA for only five days got loose and headed north. We tried everything: shelters, vets, flyers, searches, and a registration on Fido Finder. In that situation it was the flyers that did the trick, and in the joy of recovering Mandy (who had been found after two days five miles north of our place!) I forgot to delete her info from Fido Finder. Then yesterday, May 15, my own two Basenji's escaped! Again we geared up for a search, posting flyers in a 5-mile radius and contacting shelters and vets, but forgot to register Jet and Lilly on Fido Finder. However, because Mandy's old information was still on Fido Finder I received a Fido Finder message this morning that two Basenjis had just been registered as found in my neighborhood! I contacted the finder, and after a detailed conversation in which it became clear that the dogs she had found were indeed our Jet and Lilly, we met for a very joyous reunion. You can bet my Jet and Lilly are now fully registered on Fido Finder, and I'm ordering a Fido Finder dog tag for each of them. Thank you for being there!
