We've been helping pet owners in Oxfordshire find their missing pets for a number of years and it can be very rewarding - especially when people get in touch to say "thanks". Here's a selection of comments and thank-you messages that people have been kind enough to send:
I was traced through one of the posters that you designed for me, now I have my beautiful Rio back home. He has not stopped purring yet. Words cannot express how grateful I am to you and all the people who took the time to even read my posters and leaflets. Without them and the posters, I definitely would not have Rio back!
Thanks for the help!!!
Excellent web site - hopefully I won't have to use again - I will definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.
The website is very well planned out and for such a good cause. So impressed that people care.

You were brilliant....so grateful to you all. It's just so reassuring to feel that when you are 'roaming the local churchyard' on your own at 2am' that someone else cares. You definitely through your advice raised the profile that he was missing, and there was such an uptake, total strangers in the village were saying oh yes I know he's missing and ringing up t report sightings. Cannot thank you enough for your help support time and kindness. Thank you.x
Thank you for the prompt report and the poster. Everything on yourwebsite was very quick and easy to use.
Jim, Chipping Norton
Just want to say thankyou for your quick action in getting Indys details out there. Sadly for us the outcome was not good but what you do is fantastic. So once again thank you so much.
Without you, I'm not sure the poster would have been quite as succinct as it needed to be. Thank you.
Being able to print the posters and post them quickly to people was very helpful. Thank you.
Social media outlets like this are invaluable when trying to find your missing pets!!
I am certain that without the post of my cat being missing having been distributed via your alerts he wouldn't be back now...and if anything it give relative peace of mind knowing that locals vets etc are informed! Thank you!
Very reassuring you do this service - prompt and efficient.
It's a really useful service and the poster being emailed to me was really helpful.

Your service is invaluable to me. Just knowing others are keeping an eye out is a help. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your care and concern in what has been a difficult day! I felt secure in the knowledge that somebody has taken the trouble to care so much by setting up this website. Thank you so much, you really made a difference!
PetsReunited is great - just knowing that there is somewhere I can post when pets go missing is helpful, even if just psychologically!
Your system worked about as well as possible in this case! I hadn't known about the site, but quickly put a report online, owner saw it very soon after it was approved.
I think it's a wonderful set up and it comforted me greatly. I hope I'll be of use in helping find other people's lost pets.
Thank you, just being able to get the word out there in these situations helps so much.
This is a great service which has helped me in the past when I found a stray cat. I would always use the service if any of my other cats go missing because it's local and people do look at it.
It was comforting to see my lost cat report go onto Facebook so quickly, thank you.
I would just like thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help in finding our cat. It means the world to us and you will be getting a donation shortly. Your the salt of the earth people like you. You should be very proud of yourself. God bless you and take care.
Thank you it made me feel like I was doing a lot more to find the cat by joining you and it gave me some hope of getting him back so thank you for all your help.
Thank you so much! This site was amazing and really helped me feel that people cared and if he was found I had the best chance of getting him back.
Your reputation precedes you, lots of people on social media recommended you guys.
Your service is fantastic - it was a real comfort to know that my report had been posted far and wide. Thank you for your help and support.

Thanks to PetsReunited, without the people getting notifications and keeping their eyes peeled we would not have got him back with us.
I have received a few phone calls from people probably seeing her, thank you very much for that. I will be now active member of this portal as I don't want other people to go through the same situation.
PetsReunited always gets a response whatever the circumstances and cannot thank you enough!
Your poster got Tilly back home safe. Thank you !!!!
I think it's a very useful service and your website is excellent. Will recommend to anyone who loses or finds an animal.
Thank you for the posters and the help, we had people contact us to say he had been seen which was really encouraging
I felt like this site helped me in getting my message in the public forum and took some of the burden off of me.
I would like to say if it wasn't for you I don't think I would of made it thank you so much to you guys. Without your help Junior wouldn't be home. My support to you guys is 1000 percent I would recommend this website to my family and friends if they lose or their pets get stolen .. Thank you once again guys xxxx
It was reassuring to know that i had tried everything to get her home.
You helped more than anything. Very good website and worth using and I would recommend this to any one who was in a same situation as us.
Great service, very grateful that we have something like this in Oxford.
PetsReunited is a wonderful "tool" to link animal lovers who care about uniting owners with their lost 4 legged friends.
A wonderful service. We were heartened to see how long some cats can be missing and still turn up OK.
Helpful. A lot of neighbours were aware of my cat missing thanks to your website
I think the site is brilliant and brings peace of mind when your cat is missing knowing that there's a community of people on the look out
PetsReunited is fab. They build a poster for you so you can spread the word. Excellent
Very re-assuring and supportive. Get feeling timing is everything with lost cats so EXCELLENT dynamic pro-active support and guidance - our thanks and appreciation goes out to the team.
The poster that you provided helped us to 'flood' our village with messages, so we had a lot of people looking for Gus and lots of calls. By using you we felt that we were doing everything possible to get him back; it is difficult to keep up your morale when pets go missing so contacting you helped us a lot in this regard.
First time I have had to use the service - and I hope the last (!!!), but very impressed. Shall spread the word as to how effective it was. Thank you.
PetsReunited have been amazing! They got the word out really fast and connected us with people in our area. The poster was brilliant and we used it to put through people's letter boxes. Helped us feel proactive in looking for our little guy. Thank you!
Thank you so much for being there. When your pet has gone and you feel there is nothing you can do it was a great comfort to feel I was telling a caring pet loving community about our loss.
It really helped give us peace of mind that we were doing something to try and find our cat. You offer a great service. Thank you x
Thank your for producing the poster. We saw it at our local vets.
Grateful to have this service and very impressed how quickly they put the details on the system especially as it was a Sunday. Thank-you.
Many thanks to PetsReunited for supporting us in our search and being so calm and practical. Losing a pet is a unique trauma which leaves the owner feeling helpless and frustrated. Any help or advice is gratefully seized upon. You gave us the hope that spreading the search net wider than just our village might help return Mog to his home. In the event he's safely with us and showing no signs of leaving our immediate vicinity. Unfortunately he won't share the details of his two and a half week 'holiday' with us, so will probably never find out where he went!
Thank so much. Was relieved to know there was somewhere I could turn in case he decides to worry us again!
Using PetsReunited was a complete comfort and reassurance on the day she went missing. We were distraught and it helped us to remain focussed and positive. Despite the sad outcome.
It was great to know there was a network of people helping to look for her. I had a few messages and phone calls with sightings of her. I didn't feel so helpless and useless as I knew that we were all doing everything possible. Thank you so much.

Thank you for providing the service you have for very worried pet owners.
Losing a loved pet is very traumatic and there is a sense of emptiness impotence one feels. Your service is both practical and as well as supportive - the feeling that a whole community of people are helping you.
Very impressed, good service and a positive outcome.
Glad to know you were all looking out for the safe outcome for the little cat. The poster was brilliant and we put loads up locally.
I think PetsReunited is a fantastic resource and the Bicester area is very lucky to have you.
PetsReunited is great, you do a great job and the posters are a great idea. And knowing that you had contacted the vets and charities etc was such a comfort!!
PetsReunited is a wonderful service. Feel privileged to have been able to use it.
Really good service, I love the posters that are generated. Thank you. Morgan continues to go missing now - we suspect he has a 2nd home as it's always for a few days!
I think this service is fantastic, it's great to know you can report a pet is missing and all the local vets and shelters will be notified, as well as people in local area who are registered to the site can keep an eye out! Such a great community of people that love animals, it's provided some much needed peace of mind during a stressful time!
It was reassuring to be able to do something pro-active by reporting him missing on your website. I felt so powerless, that it was great to be doing something that might help find him in the end. A kind person did leave a message for me, and although it wasn't about the right cat, it was good to know that people actually read the missing report.
Having this site helps so much, I have used it before when my female cat Sixx went missing. It gives you hope that you will find your pet even if it's the worst outcome knowing is so important. Thank you so much.
This service is invaluable.
You are amazing. Best thing to happen to Oxfordshire!
I am very impressed with your service and am pleased to now be a part of the Pet Watch scheme.
The neighbours who found him traced me through this website, so you were crucial to his rescue. It was also very cheering to know that others were looking for him, and concerned for his wellbeing. Thank you!
It was nice to feel i was not alone and I was trying to do somthing. I did feel quite helpless to start with. And the poster was good. I put it up next in the place that he went missing.. I did get 1 message on the phone of a possible sighting...
You helped to re-unite us in the end as the microchip had an error in the phone number recorded but I had added details of PetsReunited to the record so my details were found. It also helped me psychologically, as I never gave up hope that someone would search and recognise his details.
Just knowing you were there and willing to help was comforting and if he had not returned on his own there was a chance someone would see him through you.
Nick was a great listener, after hearing me cry for 10 minutes about my cats he then responded quickly to produce my poster.. Thank you so much, i have 2 very happy kids :-) :-)
Mary, Chipping Norton
Great website and I always check the other missing animals and keep an eye open.
We had a positive response from the neighbourhood due to using the site. Thank you.
Excellent service. a sense of hope. Also reassurance that some good and knowing will come out of a bad situation.
I found this website very useful and would like to say thank you for the moral support you provide. The posters are excellent too - it really helps to do something practical.
I really appreciate how quickly you get the information out which is vital, thanks. The poster service is great too. It ensures you capture all the key information.
Incredibly helpful service and I was surprised that something this organised even existed to aid with the rescue of animals. Will check this if we ever come across wandering animals in the area.
PetsReunited is great and clearly worked well for me and Simba. I'd recommend the website to anyone who has lost a beloved pet.
Thank you. Having your cat go missing is just awful so I apprecaited all the help and support you were able to give me. I would like to continue to receive reports of lost animals in the hope that I might be able to help.
PetsReunited is excellent for helping to find pets as I look on a regular basis to help find other lost pets nearby.
I think it's a great service and only wish our outcome had been a happy one - but it did feel good to be proactive about our search using PetsReunited. Thanks!
PetsReunited were a light on a very dark weekend - it's so good to know there is so much support and extra pairs of eyes out there!
It is brilliant to have a place inform more people than the neighbors that our cat is missing. I felt much better after contacting PetsReunited!!
Made me feel like people were watching out for our pet. Shows people care.
It was lovely to see her reunited with her family!!!
Even though he just turned up back home,was glad we registered the loss with PetsReunited as we felt happier the message was out there and more people were keeping an eye out and had a way to contact us if seen.
You were incredibly helpful as we never would have found him without this site which is very easy to use. Brilliant! Thank you!
Its a great to be able to put an alert out and we took the posted and laminated it and put it up in all the places we could think of. Keep up the good work, we need people like you.
I would like to thank you, that you have put my dogs details on to your web side so fast and I felt a bit better knowing if anyone will find him, they can contact me. Thank you
Yours is a very useful service - even in our case it made us feel as if we were doing something useful to trace our cat!
I would like to thank the organisers of PetsReunited for setting up this website as there is a vital need to get information out as quick as possible to find a loved animal that might be injured or lost.
The facility for printing off a poster of the lost animal is inspired as it could take someone quite a long time to get one organised.
Rufus came home but it could have been a different story and i would have wanted to know if he had been killed to bring him home, as in some cases reported on the site.
I have donated £5.00 to you, sorry it couldn't be more but I am retired. Again thank you for spending the time on this wonderful site.
When Sam was missing it was helpful to know that his profile was here and that local vets etc had been informed that he was missing. It gave us confidence that if anyone found Sam they would know where he was missing from.
Absolutely helpful! You created post with picture and all details, thank you very much. As a main point, you created a peace of mind for us. That we did all what we could do in this situation. Thank you :)
PetsReunited are always helpful. And knowing that someone is there is very comforting. I used the PDF for posters which I felt was very professional. Thank you.
Very helpful, which is why I am using the service again! Not keeping this stray though - two cats is enough already!!
Once Sam's report was 'live' we received several calls and texts from members of sightings and with encouraging support. The fact that we could post a report made us feel we were being proactive.
This is a brilliant website, the dedication shown to try and reunite lost animals with there owners is brilliant and is proven worthwhile when they are found safe and well and returned home. Keep up the good work!
Brilliant wouldn't have found owner otherwise.
I love this site, it's such a comfort when things like this happen knowing you have a fantastic support/alert service.
A very helpful service, especially the network of contacts. Thanks!
I think it's absolutely essential to have this service. Feeling helpless and utter despair from a lost animal is heartbreaking and any support is valuable - thank you.
I think your service is very good and especially the help with the poster. That was very much appreciated. Your response was fast too.
I was really impressed with the help you gave me and felt that people were all looking for him, thank you.
I am really grateful. Without your email alerts to members I doubt my cat would have been returned. The finder who rescued my cat quoted your reference number for my case so it was obvious she had seen the info provided by you. Thank you so much and thank you to the finder.
PetsReunited is a fantastic idea, I have passed on your registration details to everyone I know, the more people registered the more chance of finding lost pets. Wish it had been around years ago, I spent so many hours searching the streets for lost pets, my own and other peoples. Great place, long may it continue.
This is a great service and so welcome when you are so worried about your lost dog - thank you.
This website is fantastic.
It''s very reassuring to place a ''lost'' advertisement on this site - once posted, it increases the feeling of hope, which I believe is very important in such circumstances.
We put up posters and distributed leaflets door to door in the area, and the owners rang to claim the cat. Thanks for this online service. It's very well organized and administered!
