Stolen Dog Recovered Safely with Help of Social Media and Burien C.A.R.E.S.

On a sunny day in mid-September, Philip and Analena Jaroslow’s dog Stella went missing from their yard in Renton. Stella is a Rhodesian-Pit bull mix who the Jaroslow’s rescued several years ago, the dog and their 3 year old daughter Layla are incredibly bonded and inseparable, it was very unlike Stella to leave the yard and not come back when called.

Frantic, the Jaroslow’s did what most people do when their beloved pet goes missing, they posted signs in the neighborhood, contacted the local shelters and turned to the Internet, posting on their personal Facebook pages and Craigslist. “We started driving through our neighborhood as well as other neighborhoods to find her and there was no sign of her.  We spent the next week posting signs everywhere, checking in with all local humane societies, posting on Facebook and even Craigslist.” Philip Jaroslow told us.

2 weeks had passed, the Jaroslow’s daughter Layla was despondent, and her parents feared the worst.
