We kept him pretty calm, but didn't know what we were going to do with him. Hubby called the police and left a description in case anyone called them looking for him, we put him in a spare crate....and still have him today. I've called the animal shelter, both vets, radio stations....and nothing.

I am so hoping that someone will get off their duff and call one of these places looking for their pet. He's a real sweetie - and I hate to take him to the shelter as ours isn't a "no kill" facility. I couldn't bear the thought of him being put down simply because his owners were jerks. He's wearing a collar, but no tags to identify him. It just makes me want to cry....the poor scared baby, and it doesn't appear anyone is looking for him. :crying:
You might want to take him to your vet or an animal shelter to have him scanned to see if he has a microchip - if he does you might be able to find his owners. You are sweet to take care of him in the mean time!
