Bond's Facebook page just updated:
Here is what we accomplished, week ending 8/10/14
1. Because the expanded search area posting of last week
was in question by a few Facebook followers, after we reported
it to be complete, it was decided that members of the Bond Team
would do a visual confirmation of those towns in question.
We are pleased to state that all of the areas were posted as we originally stated and want to thank the hard working volunteers that made that happen.
2. This week the area was again expanded to include Westwood, Dover, Milford, Taunton, Mendon, Raynham, and Sharon. Posting of these areas continue and will be on going this week.
3. Phone outreach has reported:
They have addressed all of the area vets, shelters, groomers, ACO's, training schools, DPW, town police, trash haulers, etc. The process of one-to-one phone calls will continue with a weekly reminder that we are still looking for Bond. Several more fliers were hand delivered to area vets and kennels this week.
4. The Internet Lost Dog sites have been watched daily. Many Internet findings were followed and found not to be Bond.
5. All possible "sightings" were investigated promptly and followed up again the next day or within two days.
6. Possible sightings:
Wrentham: Interstate 495 North—Large animal strike. Mansfield ACO confirms not a dog but a fox or coyote. Foxboro ACO also confirmed same.
North Walpole: North St.—loose Golden running along street.
East Walpole: "Gold colored" dog running behind Middle school. Bond volunteer found loose yellow lab and Walpole ACO was phoned.
Franklin: Forest St.—Golden Retriever seen along wood line loose and then ran into the woods. Walked area, posted neighborhood, placed game camera in the area of the sighting. After 3 days no photos on camera. Pulled the camera.
Norton: ACO called with possible rescue. After speaking with him, he had picked up a 2 year old female.
Norton Animal Shelter: Shelter volunteers phoned in to report they had a Golden Retriever. After conversation with shelter worker it was determined to be the same dog the ACO had already phoned about.
7. We would like to address the loose Golden in Leominster:
The woman that called the sighting in would not give us a street address for what ever reason; therefore, the Leominster ACO was called. For those of you that remarked we could have done a "reverse look-up" of her number, the phone she used had a restricted number. For those of you that believe you can trace
a restricted number I assure you it only happens on TV. We have heard nothing more about this dog and can only hope the caller was mistaken or that the dog has been reunited with his human family.
8. Volunteers have been called to help with our door-to-door walk. Walkers have agreed to submit to a CORI check by the Wrentham Police. This process has just started.
9. Local cable TV stations have been contacted and several have offered to run the Bond flyer on their daily loop.
We wish to thank all of our volunteers for their dedication to this effort and to all of our positive Facebook followers.
The Bond Team
