Who’s lost in your neighbourhood?
Due to circumstances completely beyond my control, Petluck.ca will need to be on pause for a moment. I will be accepting new postings until the end of today, October 2nd, 2014. After which, I will continue to update those postings that are already published, and hopefully find a solution shortly. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I’m currently looking at options for continuing the site, but I would require a minimum amount of support, in keeping me updated on your lost pet’s status!
** UPDATE : Thank you to those who have expressed concern, I have not been able to give 100% due to illness, and have neglected many messages, so I apologize for that. I’ve been continuing to post the ads that seem to keep coming in, and have been asked what help is needed by several people.
However, there are two very small requests that seem to go unnoticed and this for over 5 years now. One is the very simple and basic courtesy that I be kept updated when your animals are found, so that the site will run more efficiently.
And the other is that a small contribution could be made to help with the maintenance of the site. It’s just not possible to run the service on my own resources. I’m aware that there are many other free sites to post on, but Petluck is the only bilingual and completely dedicated lost and found website in the city, with archives that have allowed some lost animals to go home many months after their disappearance. Surely that is worth the price of a coffee. Thanks! I hope to be back on track very soon!
I’m hoping to provide a good tool for reuniting lost and found pets with their owners. Send the information on the pet you’ve lost or found to firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture (jpeg) if possible and any details, and I’ll publish it for you here. Please be clear as to the text and contact information you want published, and please send the information in text, not image format, I don’t have time to retype it!! I’ll need, of course, the closest address to place it on the map. (a postal code works really well) I also highly recommend subscribing to your post once published, so that you’ll receive any comments left for you without delay, as they cannot always be forwarded. The form to subscribe will be found just underneath your ad. To access it click on your ad title. (If your notice hasn’t been published within 24 hours, I didn’t receive your message!) Also, please note that your posts stay up until I’m updated !
I also wanted to provide some useful tips as well as links to places that you might also think about listing. As well as putting up posters and checking shelters there are many places to list and not everyone’s familiar with them all. Please feel free to send me any useful links that I might have missed. You’ll find them on the tips and links page. I’m hoping that the site will stay as up to date as possible, and that even if you’re posters are down and listings dropped down further on the classifieds sites, your pet will stay on the map until you’re hopefully reunited.
The only thing I ask in return for this service is that you please keep me informed if you find your pet, or found the home of the animal you took in (just send me an email!). It’s important that the blog be as up to date as possible for it to be most effective. I can’t stress enough how important it is that the attention is completely focused on those still in need. And besides, I’d love to know how things turned out, as would many of my readers! over the years I’ve come to realize just how valuable the happy endings are in helping people to stay positive. And if you think the site is worthwhile and want to see it continue, please consider donating the price of a cup of coffee, your support is much needed.Thanks!
IMPORTANT : On the links page I have included those to city shelters. The Montreal SPCA has a blog where they post their strays, including pets being held by the people who found them. Berger Blanc, started to publish their strays (July 14th, 2011). Laval is now covered by Auberge Zen, you’ll find their strays posted here. On the South Shore, A.M.R. has a page for their strays and les Services Animalières de la Rive-Sud publishes their strays here. But it’s still very important to physically go and check the shelters. Animals are often only kept for 3-5 days depending on their age, condition, and time of year, and if unclaimed they are then either euthanized or put up for adoption. For various reasons your pet might not end up at the shelter serving your area, so check all. It’s not enough to call them. Even if your pet has tags this doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be notified. It’s best to act as though your pet didn’t have any identification when conducting your search. And please realize it could be many months before your pet shows up !

Rippley loves the outdoors and especially at night as he guards the backyard of our condo units. He is 8 years old, black, male and neutered. He is extremely friendly and all the neighbors know him. If you call his name he really talks a lot! He usually goes out at night and is ready to come in, in the early morning. I never let him out during the week of Halloween, but my nephew left the door open and he ran out. He has been missing since Wednesday Oct. 29th in Lachine between 7th and 8th avenue (off of Boul. St. Joseph on the water). Thank you.

I lost a cat. She is completely black, small with a large tail. She is about 3 years old. I have not seen since Wednesday, October 28th around Ernest Bourque / Michèle-Bohec streets (Blainville – J7C 0C6). She is used to making a tour outside, but always comes back. She has a harness with a small red heart inscribed with her name “Luce” and my Telephone #. She is operated, but still has her claws. She doesn’t really approach strangers.

Hello, on Sunday, October 26 at 2pm, I lost my chocolate brown miniature pinscher, a female of two years I had just got !!! She escaped and she left. I didn’t even have time to make a medal for my dog. Her name is Cherri. Area behind Gerard Fillion, rue Beauregard.
I am searching every day in the area without result. She is a gift that I gave to my son who will be 14 next week. He is very disappointed with this mishap. Can you please share so we can find her? She is very nervous by nature, she likes cheese, it may help to approach her.
I’m passing out flyers in houses and apartment blocks in my area and I received this information from some of the calls :
***** October 30, 2014, someone would have seen my dog near the railway below Blvd Taschereau, Greenfield Park sector, St-Lambert and Ville Lemoyne, to be watched as she could be there ****

Hello I lost my orange cat, TIGROUX. In Saint-Hubert J3Y 2M6.
Operated, declawed on 4 paws, he is 2 years old and has no collar because I just moved. He is the kitty especially of my son. He never ever went out, so is very affectionate, not wild at all. Lost since 26-27.
Please, if you’re holding him, because he is nowhere, please contact me by email or by phone, please : jessyjames282[at] gmail[dot] com or 450-271-2649.
There is a small white dog that arrived in my street yesterday (October 29th, 2014). No collar. He seems to miss home. Please help me find his family. I already have a dog and can’t house a second one. Found in Pierrefonds in the area of Cap-St-Jacques. (H9K1E6)

Thanks to Lisa for the tip, my condolences to the family :
Some sad news to report. Right at the entrance of the highway on de la Verendrye and d’l’Église right (on the left) off the highway entrance to the 15/20 on the pavement is a cat that has been hit by a car. Sadly, it has passed away. It was a brown striped cat, had a pink nose and white paws.
Sad news…but maybe someone is looking for him/her.

Hello I founnd this beautiful male dog on chemin des Anglais in the rain on October 28 at 1:30 pm! I noticed he had hurt his leg… I gives him food and he slept in my warm home with me… I have a dog so I would love him to find his family because I have a small dog and a 3 month old baby at home. Please help us find his family !! He listens very well, very nice and sweet. If I do not find his family I will find him a nice family.
Call me at 514-236-1055 thank you.
His is named “Pouce Puss” because he has thumbs on both front paws. Yellow half open eyes, and a little white on his chest and tummy. He has been fixed. He may be wearing a red collar (although he takes it off, so wouldn’t count on it still being on him). He went missing last Tuesday night (Oct 21-22) or Wednesday morning. He is very friendly, and big, and knows his name.
He has the terrible curiosity of getting into cars or trucks when someone leaves the door open, and I’m afraid he might have done that again when some workmen were loading or working in the neighborhood. That makes it possible for him to be anywhere that the truck/car took him. He may also be in someone’s shed or basement in the area of Point St Charles near the Alstom factory (Sebastopol, Congregation, St Madeleine, Le Ber, Favard) block.
If found, please contact me at 514 932-0801 Thank you.
Monday, Oct. 21, our beautiful Leo went out and never came back which is not in his habit. He’s a black and white male about 3 years old. The last time he was seen, he was in the alley between Jacques-Hertel Briand and Hadley streets in Ville-Emard. We would like so much that he comes home. We miss him! Maybe he is hidden in your yard or on your balcony?
If you see him please contact us at : 514-762-5553 or 2112yyz[at] sympatico[dot] ca
Hello everyone my name is Jennifer and our precious cat “Mommy Cat” went missing on Sept 29th 2014 In Vieux-Longueuil, between Bord de L’Eau & Labonte (J4H 0A6).
She is 15 yrs old and on the skinny side as she had previously been living with my son and had lost a lot of weight, but I brought her home and she was gaining weight again until she went missing while I was in the hospital. In the past if she ever did get out, she always came back. Not this time, we have searched for her every single day, but still nothing. If you have any news whatsoever on her location pls contact me. I am also offering a small reward to anyone who returns her. Our hearts are broken and we miss her so much.
You can email me at jennifer-lynne[at] live[dot] com. Thank you.
