Updated: Tako is safe!


Tako was found safe, if not a little shaken, early Sunday evening in Seward Park. Some kind-hearted community members there took her in... and helped reunite Tako and family.

Takoyaki, a 50-pound pitbull mix with large spots on a white body, went missing this afternoon in Tompkins Square Park. 

Her owners say that she is easily frightened...

[Updated] Bertie is missing after early morning fire on St. Marks Place

The FDNY responded to a major fire at 53 St. Mark's Place between First Avenue and Second Avenue early Saturday morning.

There weren't any reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Author Ada Calhoun's parents, longtime residents here, were among those displaced by the fire on the upper floors. In the race to leave their home at 2 a.m., they were able to save one of their cats, Theo. However, Bertie, their other cat, got away in the chaos.

Ada thinks that it's likely Bertie is still on the block. "He's good at hiding but he's sure to get hungry and come out at some point," she told me in an email.

The flyer above has a photo of Bertie as well as contact information should you happen to find him.

Updated 10/29

Woot! Bertie turned up in a neighbor's closet downstairs today.

"Apparently, he had been hiding expertly in the building and living on toilet water and mice," Ada wrote in an email. "He is skinny, but otherwise healthy and in good spirits."

[UPDATED] Rusty Bell is missing

Updated: See below... Rusty Bell was found safe.

This past Saturday evening, Dumbo resident David Buccola was with his dog Rusty Bell on Second Avenue just north of Houston when a car struck him. In the aftermath of the collision, Buccola became separated from Rusty Bell.

Since then, a heartbroken Buccola hasn't seen the dog, a 12-pound female Chihuahua wearing an orange harness, collar and tags. A witness reported spotting her later that night running north on Avenue C near Third Street.

Buccola is offering a $1,000 reward — no questions asked — for her safe return. Details are on the flyer below.


Three friends on 12th Street and Avenue A had found Rusty Bell ... and there was a happy reunion tonight...

Lucy remains missing

An East Village resident's apartment was burglarized late Saturday night. Upon his return home on Sunday afternoon, the person/people who did this left his window open... and both of his cats were gone. He found one in a courtyard... Lucy, pictured above, is still missing. (And she's not the same cat found the other night on Third Street and Avenue B.)

Lucy was last spotted in the schoolyard behind Fourth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

There is a $1,000 reward for her return. She was last seen on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Here's a number to use for any info about Claribel: (917) 597-2692.

Do Do is missing

EVG reader Seth shares this:

Anyone who's walked regularly down Broome between Eldridge and Forsyth probably knows "Do Do" — the temple cat at the Guan Gong Temple, 294 Broome. He's often sitting stoically with his quiet Buddha-nature by the door, observing passersby. Sadly, he's missing, and the temple congregants have put a few signs up around the neighborhood. Hopefully neighbors can keep an eye out around the neighborhood and park and if they see him (hopefully alive) grab him and bring him back to the temple. He's a bit of a neighborhood fixture.

Rex is missing

As several readers have noted, there seems to be a rash of missing-lost pet flyers of late... Here is another. A little background. The person who sent along the email said that a friend moved to another country, and needed to find a new home for his cats. An East Village resident took in Rex, but later apparently abandoned him somewhere in the neighborhood.

There is a permanent home for Rex now once he is found.
