Pizza Shop Helps Find Missing Pets By Putting Their Posters On Pizza Boxes

A pizzeria in New Jersey has created a brillaint way to help people looking for their lost pets. This tactic was thought up by the owner, John Sanfretello of Angelo’s Pizza in Matawan, by putting the posters of the lost pets on front of the pizza boxes to get the word out to the local people.

Angelo’s owner, John Sanfretello, said he was inspired to do this as he saw a missing cat post on Facebook and it instantly came to him that this was a huge way to get the word out and help people..

He revealed:

“I saw the post and thought ‘I really want to help this lady,’ because our cat had gone missing a while back. Ours eventually came back, thank God, but I know what kind of anxiety that can cause – pets are family members. I turn around and I see this stack of pizza boxes and I thought ‘Hey, here’s the avenue to do this.'”

Sanfratello also wanted to help himself online and said in a post “Anyone in the Matawan/Aberdeen area who has a missing pet can drop off flyers for us to place on all our pizza boxes. No charge.”

Having been shared 1500 times, the post has reached so many people which is amazing.

One day Sanfratello and his team received information that a German Shepherd puppy named Ondrea had gone missing. The dog went missing just before training to be a ‘seeing-eye’ dog.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-lang=”en-gb”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Angelo’s Pizza in Matawan has changed up their policy: From now on, they’re going to be posting flyers on their pizza boxes of missing pets. <a href=”https://t.co/u9T8Br4vVa”>https://t.co/u9T8Br4vVa</a> <a href=”https://t.co/y0Clt3X3aU”>pic.twitter.com/y0Clt3X3aU</a></p>&mdash; CBS New York (@CBSNewYork) <a href=”https://twitter.com/CBSNewYork/status/1151563227723194368?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>17 July 2019</a></blockquote>

Since Sanfratello himself had coached New Jersey’s first baseball team for the blind a few years prior to the incident, he explained:

“We coached that team for a few years, so we understand the need for that dog and how seeing eye dogs serve the blind community. We’ve done other campaigns for the community — which had great local responses — but nothing like this.”

Soon enough the poster was circulating around the community.

Sanfratello explained:

“My employees have been very receptive and are excited to be helping in every way. We want the campaign to continue. We want businesses to realize that it’s good to pay it forward and to give back. We’ve been here for 45 years, and this community is what’s kept us in business. We’re a family, and we’re always going to try to support our community.”
