Tracey and Jeff (Luzerne County Pet Recovery Services) went above and beyond for our new rescue this holiday season. Samwell has only lived in our home for four days when this foster family penned “escape artist” ran through a closing door on December 19th, 2019.
From the moment we reached out for help, Tracey was on google maps learning about our neighborhood. Once Sam was spotted miles from our house, she met me with wet hair on a Sunday morning by 9 am on a local farm 45 minutes from her home. She and Jeff tracked Sam, set up a humane trap and cameras and included us in the plan to recover our frightened guy.
When Sam found his way back to our neighborhood on Christmas Eve, she and Jeff came to our home to set up cameras and feeding stations. On Christmas Day, 2019, this couple was at our home twice! First setting up their high tech trap with lasers and magnets, and, when Sam went into the trap at 1:10 am, they came to our home again to make sure he did not escape while opening the trap to retrieve him.
I have never experienced anything like the dedication these people have to lost and frightened animals. And their kindness and patience to panicking family members was most welcome. They went above and beyond for our family and we will never forget them. You hope you never need them, but it’s so wonderful that they exist if you do! Support this all-volunteer organization!
