(Update – FOUND!)
ORIGINAL REPORT: From the inbox:
My name is Rachael and on 10/18/2014 my Siberian Husky, Luna, got out of our yard. We live at the North end of Burien. I am begging everyone to please keep their eye out for her. She has distinctive “snake bite” marks on her muzzle and a dark mask with blue eyes. She is very friendly and was last seen at 10019 Des Moines Memorial Drive, Burien WA 98168. She is federally registered with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities) as a service companion and she is needed and missed. There is a reward for her safe return. Please call Rachael at 775-770-4569 or Cory at 206-683-2112 if she is found or sighted.
THURSDAY UPDATE: King County Sheriff’s Office has this short and sweet update via Twitter:

Courtney is hoping you can help find Dooley the dog:
My dog Dooley got out of my yard on Tuesday around 6 pm. 1400 block SW 114th St., between 14th and 15th, a block from the McDonald’s on 16th. He is a miniature Australian shepherd dachshund mix. 8 yrs old 17 lbs. He needs pain pills for a shoulder injury. Has a limp, left front leg. Sometimes it’s little, and sometimes it’s worse. I’ve called all the vets and shelters in the area. My friends went door to door all around to ask around. Any help would be amazing. Thank you. 206-446-4059
From the inbox: “I found this little guy wandering around White Center at 107th and 18th Ave SW
yesterday evening about 8:00 p.m. I took him to the vet and he isn’t chipped. He looks like a possible mix between a Basset Hound, Pug, and maybe Virgo because of his longer fur.” If it’s your dog or you know whose dog it is, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
(The found dogs reported here on Sunday are back home!)
From Amy: “My parrot got out Saturday night in the White Center area (4th/102nd). She got spooked and went in the tree which we couldn’t get her down. She is a very sweet, well mannered, sounds like R2D2 from Star Wars and everyone thinks she is the coolest parrot, she has moved cross country twice with me and has been my best friend for years. I really hope some kind people find her and contact me. She loves pistachios, ice cold water, music, especially guitar. I am offering a reward of $100 to get her home safely. My name is Amy, my cell is 425-445-0761, please text or call anytime.”
Just listed on our Lost/Found Pets page on West Seattle Blog, which includes White Center listings too, but in case you just read WCN, we’re sharing the announcement here:
Jonathan wrote, “We lost our long-coat Chihuahua called Buffy on March 12th, 2014. She is 3 years old and Brown and Tan in color and about 7 lbs.She ran away from the dog sitter on 6th Ave SW and SW 104th St. in White Center. Our telephone number is 425-381-9526 and people can call 24 hours a day.” In a followup exchange, he told us there was a sighting in the Lakewood Park area on March 19th, but nothing since then.
Received through our lost/found pets page at partner site West Seattle Blog, word of kittens found in White Center:
Found: Siamese Kittens
Location: 4th Ave SW & SW 110th St
Date: Saturday 11/23/13
These kittens and their mother have been wondering around my backyard the past few days. They appeared dirty and hungry. After they camped out under my back porch over night through these freezing temperatures, I brought them into my home until they can be reunited to their owners.
Please call: 360.621.5901 for more information.

The recent pet-food donation drive by White Center-headquartered West Seattle Montessori/West Seattle Academy brought in 2,471 pounds of food! Heather Aquino shares photos and a report:
The West Seattle Academy’s 7th graders collected more than a ton of dog, cat, and even bird food for their school-wide pet food drive. The drive lasted three weeks and was a spirited contest between all of the classes in West Seattle Montessori and West Seattle Academy. The Yellow Room donated the most food, with a whopping 724 lbs donated to the cause. They were treated to an ice-cream party hosted by the 7th graders on Thursday, May 9th.
The report continues:
On Friday, May 3rd the 7th graders loaded up the school van with all of the large bags of dog and cat food and headed to the Humane Society of Seattle to drop it all off, take a tour of their facilities, and learn about how their donations help local families, senior pet owners on limited incomes, and people with terminal illnesses lacking the essential resources needed to tend for their furry companions.
With the bulk of the collected food being donated to the Humane Society, there is still a substantial amount that will be dispersed to smaller, local animal shelters in our community. The drive was an overwhelmingly huge success. Thank you to the Yellow Room and all of the students of West Seattle Montessori and Academy for an amazing experience that benefited not only the Humane Society, but that also inspired the giving spirit of our 7th graders.
Know this pup? It’s been found – and here’s how to get it home again:
This is a lost puppy I found in White Center. Please message me at 206-353-9066 or e-mail me at email@example.com if this dog looks familiar to you.
Just received this:
2 red retrievers came up to our gate at 1815 SW 112th. We put them in the fully fenced yard. One adult, one puppy about 8-10 months. Kristine 206-930-9062
We found 2 young golden retrievers this morning by our store. No collars on them.
Be on the lookout:
Friendly small (male) pit bull with red harness. No tags, but is micro chipped. Last seen on 24th Ave SW, near SW 110th, 3 pm. 53 lbs, brownish/gray brindle, white chest, white front paw, small hematoma on right ear.
MONDAY UPDATE: Back home!
This was sent in for the lost/found-pets section on partner site West Seattle Blog, but he turned up in WC:
Unaltered male Shiba Inu found this afternoon around 4:30 in White Center east of McLendon. No collar or identification (I added the red collar for manageability), friendly and good natured. Fetches and sits like a champ. I have no doubt someone owns and loves this guy, likely he pulled out of a collar or escaped from an open door or gate. Please contact me … if this is your dog or you know who’s it is. If I don’t hear from anyone I will take him to Animal Control (this) morning to see if he is chipped. 206.234.7445, firstname.lastname@example.org
Out of the inbox:
This dog was found in a White Center parking lot this afternoon around 3:30 pm. Chris says it was taken to a vet, but had no microchip, and it was wearing no collar. Yours? Or know whose it is? Contact Chris at 253-334-5654.
This sweet dog was roaming the White Center Carnival at Steve Cox Park. She is obviously well-loved, and has a collar with a padlock on it. Contact us at (206) 528-2443.
The dog added to our West Seattle Blog Lost/Found Pets Page on Sunday evening disappeared from the Gatewood area but might be in White Center, according to a sighting that came in Sunday night. The dog’s owner has been notified, but we don’t have word yet of a reunion, so we are publishing a heads-up here too: August is a 2-year-old Weimaraner, not wearing his collar. Anne from South Park was headed east on Roxbury when she saw a Weimaraner running in traffic west near 8th and Roxbury and sent WSB a note about it. She’s also talked to August’s owner, Joshua, and she notified police. If you see a dog that looks like August, you can reach Joshua at 206-856-5860.
Just received: Word of a lost Shepherd mix, last seen around 104th/4th SW. There’s a chain attached to his collar; if you see this dog, please call Liz at 605-3824.
