In July 2013, Cathy saw a lost dog and posted it on Craigslist. A person who had a lost dog thought it was their dog. His owner was an over-the-road trucker that lived in California. He stopped at a Gretna, Nebraska Wal-Mart for a break when their dog, Kuzik, bolted. His owner searched for him for several hours, but he had a tight schedule to keep. So, Cathy volunteered to help out because the trucker had to leave and needed somebody local to follow up on leads, coordinate communications, begin putting up posters and organizing searches. As a result of the Kuzik search, it became clear that many others needed similar assistance in communications, posters and searches. So, Cathy created a Facebook page to publish lost, found and wandering pets in February 2014.
