“She was hugging for us for hours it seemed,” she said.

The group did some research and found the owner, who had given up hope of finding the dog. The dog is now living with a new owner.

Other times, the site has alerted neighbors to a missing dog.

“We had lost our dog, Brady, after he ran away during some fireworks near the Fourth of July,” Gina Lebrun of Derry said. “A couple was walking down the street and saw the dog after seeing it on Granite State Dog Recovery.”

Most of the volunteers who run the website work with dogs in their full-time jobs. Piche and Mokrzecki run dog-sitting businesses, while Bertrand worked at Salem Animal Rescue League for 12 years.

But this organization means something else to them.

“We just have a compassion for animals,” Bertrand said. “An animal out there trying to survive without help of any people is heartbreaking.”
