Have you seen "Buddy"?

If you have a pet you already know that one of the worst things that can happen is to lose them. Crossing the "rainbow bridge" is one thing but when a pet goes lost most of us will do whatever it takes to locate them safely. That's what one pet owner is currently trying to do after her tortoise went missing in the Hudson Valley about a week ago.

Social media platforms like Facebook can be extremely helpful when it comes to pet owners trying to find a pet that has gone missing. There are a ton of groups that dedicate their pages to sharing pictures and stories from folks that are trying to locate a dog, a cat, or even a tortoise that has gotten out. One of the Hudson Valley's most active lost pet pages is Lost Pets of the Hudson Valley and recently, they shared an interesting plea from a pet owner.

If you happen to find Buddy, Kelle did say that she's asking you to please "put him in a box or take him in to safety and please call me 347 381 0200." If you have any information on where Buddy is you can also email Kelle at Kelledylan115@gmail.com. Kelle's post has been shared over 100 times this week, with one commenter asking an interesting question

"Maybe he buried himself in the ground. They do that up to 3 months. Also, is there a mating zone he could have gone to? Good luck!❤"

As more information becomes available regarding Buddy, we will update this article.
