Pet Talk: Reunions with lost pets need a little bit of help

When Petra Runckel’s Pomeranian puppy escaped from a friend’s home on Southeast Holgate Boulevard recently, she fretted about Kodiak’s safety in a strange neighborhood.

Her boyfriend quickly posted an online notice on the “lost and found” section on Craigslist, which was spotted by a Multnomah County Animal Services dispatcher. The agency sent several animal control officers to find him. Kodiak had wandered almost 20 blocks by the time animal control officer Nicole Cherry spotted him on Southeast Powell Boulevard.

Runckel and Kodiak enjoyed a happy reunion. But not everyone is so lucky.
