This scared, timid girl appeared in a neighborhood off of West Ridge Road near the RR tracks in Elyria, OH on Jan 8th '22. She was unapproachable.
Remi's was called on Jan 14th and set a trap during the day in the cold, brutal weather. A microchip identified her as belonging to Friendship APL
Willow was safely recovered at 1am 1-15-22. She had escaped from the Friendship APL and had been missing about 2 weeks; she was safely returned.
Dogs find a way to survive- this dog had taken up residence under this car that was covered in a tarp whic was fairly a large area underneath it all!
After setting up and driving home late at night, he was already exploring the trap. I pulled right back out and headed back to Lorain where he was caught & patiently waiting for me! It was a bitter cold January night and we were so grateful to get this stray out of the elements and into a warm, safe place! He was not claimed and eventually adopted!
Dante was being transported from Columbus to Cleveland and escaped from his new owners as they transferred him from vehicles; he took off crossing a major 4-lane business district and ran off into the woods wehre he survived for two weeks.
A sighting near Costco/woods brought us to an exact location where Dante was seen running- Remi's set a trap and within hours Dante was visiting and exploring. I got there at 6am to rebait and 5 hours later Dante was safely secured!
Dante was loaded up into my car and safely transported back to my home where he was fitted with a martingale collar and reunited with his new adoptive mom! Thank you for trusting us to safely recover Dante!
Knowing dogs typically stay very close to where the trauma occurs, Remi's focused on the wooded area where there had been multiple sightings of Lucca running throughout the day. We were able to see her in the distance playing in the field- keeping mom at bay with us was quite the challenge as is typically the case for us along with keeping the area quiet and free from well-intended onlookers & police. Once Lucca found the food trail, we knew it would be a matter of time!!
After about 2 hours of cat/mouse Lucca was safely secured by Remi's! The trap was carried back to the garage where Lucca was reunited with her grateful owner! Here, she thanks Debbie & Vanessa and we couldn't be more happier!!
Mom couldn't be happier than to have her best friend back in her arms! #Trusttheprocess
Freya was lost from a relative's home in Mogadore, Ohio while her owner was in town from CA for her wedding! Mom contacted Remi's & was distraught and frantically searching for her beloved pet.
Owner was awesome to work with and listened to all our advice and did exactly as instructed. Mom went out and purchased another trap/trailcam and kept track of all sightings as she frantically ran for 10 days flirting with dangerous roads/traffic & wildlife. The area was flooded with signs/posters and after 6 long days of silence, she finally appeared & the sightings started to inundate owner's cell phone. Three traps were placed based on Freye's patterns; mom had gathered (2) and Remi's had one out with our trailcam.
After her 10-day adventure Freya was finally captured in the trap mom placed across the street from where she escaped. Dogs typically stay very close to where they go missing from when in unfamiliar area. Remi's was on hand to witness this beautiful reunion between owner & her best friend! Now she can get married and enjoy her wedding that was taking place in two days!!
Remi's was alerted of a stray dog living in Nela Park, East Cleveland, Ohio for at least 5 weeks. Employees at the GE plant were feeding him.
Giving him time to acclimate to the trap was crucial; therefore, the back release panel was left off for the night allowing him to venture in throughout the night and get more comfortable. Patience is the key when working with dogs that are extremely skittish.
The next morning he was safely recovered and taken to the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter; he had a microchip and owner was contacted. He is currently awaiting pickup. 10/15/22
UPDATE: 10-30-22 Owner never came to pick up 'King' - he will be available for adoption!
Cooper went missing after a recent adoption on Friday, Oct 21st 2022 in Kent, Ohio. Typically, dogs tend to stay close to thier last-known location.
Remi's was contacted for help and we arrived on scene Friday evening.
Captured from the trailcam at 1:30 am in the wooded area behind the apt. complex.
Patience is the key when working with skittish dogs in an unfamiliar area. I knew he would return to the 'food station' --Cooper was safely recovered Saturday, Oct 22nd 2022 around 4p.m. & reunited with his grateful new Owner!
Nova was reported missing from Willowick, Ohio on 9-10-22
Nova had been frequenting a neighborhood in Willoughby, Ohio but sightings were sporadic; once they became more frequent the homeowner & I discussed a feeding routine and consistency. I made the trip to Willoughby Saturday morning 10-22-22 and set up our trap/trail cam. Later that evening at 8pm, Nova was successfully recovered and we h
Nova had been frequenting a neighborhood in Willoughby, Ohio but sightings were sporadic; once they became more frequent the homeowner & I discussed a feeding routine and consistency. I made the trip to Willoughby Saturday morning 10-22-22 and set up our trap/trail cam. Later that evening at 8pm, Nova was successfully recovered and we headed back to Willoughby at 9pm to meet Nova's owner to safely transport her back home to Willowick, OH.
Remi's transported Nova back home and made sure Nova was fitted with a martingale collar; Nova was ecstatic to be back home with her mom & we couldn't be more happier for these two!
April has a unique story. She was brought over from the meat-trade industry out of South Korea & adopted by a wonderful family in Medina, Ohio. April co-existed with their family but they were unable to touch her or interact with her due to her abusive past history. Fast forward one year; after wrapping up the evening, owner noticed April was not in the house-April found her way under a hole in the fenced-in backyard and started to explore the neighborhood: she became lost and owner's were now frantic. Based on my numerous conversations with Mom, I knew I had my hands full but agreed to take the case. April would have no part of the trap which I was not surprised by at all. I left the back panel release door off for a few days to allow her to get more comfortable and walk through the trap with no interruptions. (See photos)
Getting more comfortable with the trap the back panel door is off and the camera is right behind the trap under a bush. 11-08-22
Allowing the trap to remain in position for (3) days uninterrupted helped April become more at ease; although she was extremely skittish and ran at the sound of any noise/human near by. I arrived later in the evening on 11-10-22 and did not tell owners' I would be attempting to trap her. I made sure mom didn't feed her as I wanted her hungry. I placed hot, fresh KFC in the trap and sat in my car to wait; 3 minutes later April arrived and flirted with the food/trap but ultimately she was safely recovered and her nightmare was finally over. I loaded her up and drove 0.4 miles to her home & surprised her anxious mom & dad! They were overwhelmed with tears and thanked Remi's over/over for making their family whole once again!!
Remi's was alerted to this lil fella living in a Ravine off the Jennings Freeway near Old Brooklyn in mid October; the neighborhood reported seeing him weeks prior to contacting us. There was not much room to work with as the houses sat along this deep ravine with little to no backyards.
