"Diplo" Grey DSH, San Francisco - Update! Diplo has been found!











 https://strava.app.link/vMGPh2Mtvtb

Diplo has been found and is safe at home!!

Diplo is an indoor/outdoor two year old grey DSH who is microchipped but not wearing a collar. It is unknown why she didn't come home one night, despite a regular schedule of always being home at night. 

The track we found led away from the street and around and around the neighborhood and led out of the area and all the way to Lake Merced after six miles. There is a possibility that she was picked up by a person and carried out. The two tracks are similar of a cat walking and a human walking out of the area. 

Her person said she would continue to look for Diplo.

"Banchee," Catahoula Mix, Grey and White, Oakland

 







Banchee is an eight year old Catahoula mix who is microchipped but not wearing a collar. She got frightened of fireworks going off in the neighborhood from a house she was visiting.

There were no sightings of Banchee after she went missing despite an extensive search. She is afraid of other dogs and people also, which could make it difficult to physically catch her.

The track we found led all around Oakland and eventually onto International Blvd, heading south towards San Leandro. 

Banchee"s person said she would continue to look for her and stay in the area until she was found.

"Leo" DSH Grey Tabby with White, Oakland

 





 
Leo is an indoor/outdoor, microchipped 11 month old DSH. He was not wearing a collar. It had come off a week before with his GPS tag. 

He was last seen by his person at 5 AM on a Monday when she was inside the house.  There were no sightings of Leo prior to our search. There are several homeless camps nearby under freeways. 

The track we followed around Oakland and Berkeley appeared to be that Leo had been picked up and carried away. Since the trash was picked up the same morning that he went missing, it appears that a transient/homeless person picked up Leo on his rounds of picking through the recycle bins that were put out on the curb. Leo's person confirmed that he is friendly with strangers and will approach them. 

Leo can get away from that person at any time and make his way back home, but he will face along the way other territorial animals. His person did put up flyers along the way of the search to alert people. Also, since the search crossed the borders of both Oakland and Berkeley and both have government and private shelters, I recommended that she contact all four shelters to alert Leo of being missing in case he shows up at any of those shelters, in addition to the county shelter in Dublin.

"Morty" Chihuahua, Dark Brindle, San Francisco

 




Morty is a four year old dark brindle Chihuahua mix. When he was being walked by his person at 1:30 AM he was wearing a harness attached to a leash. Somewhere along the line after becoming lost, the harness and leash came off and was later found. 

There were numerous possible sightings but none could be confirmed, so we started back at the last place his person was known to be holding the leash and walking him. Asia did pick up on a track that led all around the area and eventually went into Golden Gate Park. 

The search was stopped at 4 hours and Morty's person said he would continue to look for him.

"Nadja" Siberian, Grey with white, Oakland Found!!!

 



Found!!!!!
I received an email that Nadja returned home after being missing for a week. The construction crew noted her sitting on the back fence and informed her people!! I was told she was very hungry, thirty and disoriented, but was resting at home.

Nadja is an indoor/outdoor, white with grey year old Siberian. She went missing from her home one evening when she didn't come home from dinner. She is wearing a collar and she is microchipped. There has been no sightings of Nadja since she went missing. She was seen by construction crews at the house around 4 PM when they left. 

The track we found led around the neighborhood and then straight north for over a mile, all the way into Berkeley, and then it went around and around all over the streets and neighborhoods. The search was stopped at 4 hours and they said they would continue to look for Nadja.

Based on the track we found and the lack of sightings, it does appear that Nadja was picked up near her house by someone, probably a transient looking for recycling from cans since the trash was picked up early the next morning. Once we got to Berkeley, it did appear that somewhere she got loose because the track was a lot more random and chaotic, more like a loose cat, than a human being walking. 

Unfortunately, this is common with cats since they are easy to carry and don't require to be walked like dogs.

"Sunshine/Fatty" DSH, Orange Tabby, Pleasant Hill

 




Sunshine is a microchipped three year old DSH, orange tabby who had recently moved into the new location with his person and another cat. He was previously a feral cat before this person, but had been strictly an indoor only cat with this person for the last couple of years

He broke through a screen window on the second night of this new location and was spotted in the area after a few days. We went to the sighting and followed the track for several miles. His person was great and talked to every single person we saw along the way, which is the best way to tell people about missing cats since people tend to ignore cats that they see. If flyers can be matched with an animal they see, they can easily call that person to tell them what they recently saw.

"Sarah," DMH, Black, San Francisco


https://strava.app.link/kDZXhDET6pb 


Sarah is a three year old DMH who was recently brought over from Russia. She is microchipped with a chip from Europe and her people were working on getting it registered here in the US. 

Her people were visiting some friends in San Francisco and was being walked around on a leash in the neighborhood. On the way back to the apartment, Sarah got spooked by a loud car driving by. She pulled from her person's arms and out of the collar and leash. They searched the area for hours but never found her. 

Eight days later they received a note about a cat that fit Sarah's description on a camera in a yard in another part of San Francisco. They were sent the photos and it did appear to be Sarah. We started the search there from the street, at the only entrance to the fenced and locked yard. 

Asia picked up the track leading out from the yard and down the streets. We continued the search for five hours and 10 miles around San Francisco, including the Presidio and Geary street. They are continuing to look for Sarah.
