Lost Dog-RHONDA-5.11.2022

Rhonda is a 2 year old female Bernese Mountain dog and was last seen by the Potsdam Morley Rd and Route 11, Thursday May 19th 2022 and was possibly in Canton on route 27 on 5/20. She could be anywhere! The search area has been expanded to include at the least a 1 1/2 hour drive radius around Potsdam, NY due to her traveling great distances in less than a day's time. If you spot her, please keep your distance and do not chase; she is in panic mode and it only pushes her farther away. Try to take a picture from a distance. Contact the owner at 315-705-8875 or the Animal Control Officer at 315-323-4550 with any sighting. If you reach voicemail, leave date, time and address/location of sighting. Please share her picture and information.

Rhonda was being transported from Ohio to her new owner in Massena, NY on May 11th, 2022 and when they arrived, she got scared and ran out of the van at 1am in the morning and has been on the run since. She has been spotted in several towns/villages miles away from the Massena area since 5/16. She has traveled double digit miles in less than a day several times and could easily be anywhere within our new search radius.

She is not familiar with this area and is friendly, but very scared and disoriented. She is desperately trying to find her old family from Ohio. Please share Rhonda with anyone in the area, especially those who might not have access to social media or the internet.

LOST CAT- NOVA 1.2.2022

Lost Cat TEDDY 5.2.2021

Teddy managed to slip outside Sunday morning (5/2/21) and was last seen Sunday afternoon in the woods in Rainbow Lake on County Route 60 near Vosberg Rd. and Hull Rd (on the other side of the road).

He is used to living with other cats, so he might be attracted to a place that has cats.
