Feline escapee ‘Memphis’ returned to owners through social media


Big Idea


  • A stray cat was found near the Goodwill store in Prescott Valley
  • The cat didn’t have a microchip or a collar
  • The Humane Society was full and could not take the feline
  • The cat was able to stay with the Prescott Valley Animal Control


Memphis finds his way home thanks to social media!


Last week, Prescott Valley Animal Control Supervisor Tim Yogerst responded to a call for a stray cat near the Goodwill store. The cat had neither a microchip nor a collar. Because the Humane Society was full, they could not take the feline, so the cat stayed with Animal Control over the weekend while officers searched for the owners. 

Through social media channels, the owners, who live in their RV and were in the parking lot of the Goodwill store when the cat, named “Memphis,” escaped, were found.  After a fruitless search for Memphis, the owners had to travel to Peoria. They posted to local social media before they left, and Animal Control was able to connect with them. They drove from Peoria on Tuesday, Oct. 27, and had a happy reunion, complete with a new bag of cat food for Memphis. 

If you lose a pet, you can notify Prescott Valley Animal Control at 928-772-5154 or fill out a form online at https://www.pvaz.net/FormCenter/Police-Department-7/Lost-Pet-Notification-71. Additionally, there are several Facebook pages where you can list lost pets, including Lost Pets of Northern Arizona.
