Duxbury Great Dane and Vizsla home!

“So our Great Dane & Vizsla are found. Thank you all for your help and action They were spotted by a FPF member in N Fayston on Sunday at 9 AM (4.5 miles from our house). We looked for them all day Monday to no avail – thanks to those who I bothered by knocking on their door in earnest. Got a call today from very nice folks who had them walk up and plop on their front lawn 2 miles from where they were sighted Sunday. Both are skeletal looking and the Vizsla needed help from Roy to remove quills (thanks Roy and team – you’re the best!) Back home and soundly sleeping on their couch. Thank you all – we are so relieved and Front Porch Forum is the best – this is where all the info flowed.”

“A week ago I posted on behalf of a friend who was fostering three adorable Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix puppies that needed homes. After my post on Front Porch Forum she said the response from the Waterbury Community was overwhelming. All three of those puppies are now in happy new homes and two of them now reside in the Waterbury area. A happy ending for all!”

Karma: Lost bankroll returned to generous owner in South Hero

“On Sunday morning some money was dropped on my front lawn. I have a table with Yard Sale Items with a sign that reads FREE OR DONATE TO THE FRANKLIN HUMANE SOCIETY. There was some money left in the donation tub. I would guess that the money I found fell out of your pocket when/if you made a donation. Thank you, by the way. The found money was an amount that I could not afford to lose. If you are this person or know who it may be please call me or stop by. By the way, NO SCAMMERS!. I have no tolerance for thieves and if you cannot satisfy me that you are indeed the person who lost this money I will report your license plate number to the Sheriff’s Dept. Hope to hear from you. If this money is not claimed it will, in fact, be a donation the Franklin Count Humane Society. Thank you.”
• Thom, South Hero FPF

“I posted a found money notice yesterday on FPF. Update: the individual and the money have been happily re-united. The end-all to this situation is that it happened so quickly and that it happened at all only because of Front Porch Forum. Thanks.”
