Woman reunites 1,000 lost pets with owners


(CNN) — A Cape Coral woman has made it her mission to help animals find their way back home.

Lori Briggs has reunited over 1,000 lost pets with their owners.

“I just want to get the word out there for people that have lost their pets that there is help out here,” Briggs said.

Briggs is a dog mom, law enforcement officer and a superhero to hundreds of people she’s helped reunite with their lost pet.

November Eisenberg credits Briggs with bringing her ‘Ace’ back home.

“They’re part of your family…it was horrible while he was gone..and she heard about him escaping and was a big big part in bringing him home,” Eisenberg said. “As far as I’m concerned Lori’s my hero…I’ve never seen any one individual do so much for so many people.”

For 10 years now Briggs donates her time and money to track and trap animals that have gone missing.

All anyone needs to do is call.

“Animal control the get busy, I have live cameras that send pictures to my phone,” Briggs said.

Using her souped up van and humane methods, “they come in and they step right here and the door shuts,” Briggs said.

She says she’s successfully captured more than 1,000 pets.

“1,062,” Briggs said.

Reuniting them with worried owners, free of charge.

“haven’t charged anyone yet cuz and I’m like “oh I’m just gonna do it” my heart kicks in,” Briggs said.
