LOST 12/3/21 - Stoney Creek Area

Our sweet black and white cat “Tux” (for Tuxedo) went missing around 10:00pm on December 3rd, from 45 Stoney Glen (Stoney Creek), Nellysford, VA, and he is still being spotted near this area.  His claws should enable him to climb trees to escape most predators.  In an attempt to lure him home, we have set up a nice camp for him on our porch (crate with warm bedding, dish of smelly cat food, and his litter box).  We miss our sweet boy and desperately want him back.  If you see him, please call/text me (Cathy) on my cell phone at 434-825-8616.  Thank you!

FOUND MAR 09, 2021 Gladstone Firehouse/Route 60 - Red Female Redbone Coonhound, approximately 3+ years.  She looks like she's had pups in the last couple of months. No collar on dog (it had one when the dog was see a couple of days ago.)  My husband saw the dog 2 days ago at a neighbors and they couldn't catch the dog to read the tag on the collar other than the area code was 434 and the dog ran away into the woods.  The dog came back to the neighbor's today, with no collar, and my husband was able to catch her and bring her to our house with a fenced in back yard so she is safe.  An Animal Control Officer will pick her up on March 12 and hopefully this nice dog will get back to her owners.  Please contact Animal Control (see number above) if this is your dog.
