To the Editor,
Thank You for Sadie’s Safe Return. Mike and I are still overwhelmed with the response we received from our community. We wish to thank everyone who volunteered hours to search the woods and surrounding areas, reporting sightings on your home security cameras, printing up flyers and passing them out around the town. We appreciate those who sent notes expressing hope and prayers for Sadie’s safe return.
We wish to thank the State Police; Mattapoisett Police; volunteer Fire Departments, and Kathy Massey, Mattapoisett Animal Control Officer for overseeing a safe environment for her when needed. We also want to mention our neighbor, Curtis Mendes, for his quick action to notify the Mattapoisett Life Facebook page of Sadie’s disappearance right away. He also communicated with Deb Newport from Missing Dogs MA daily, relaying any changes in Sadie’s locations, do’s and don’ts in how to approach or not to approach her etc. Deb came down every day to assess where the dog was on site cameras to discern where she moved. She had a sixth sense where to set up the crate traps and cameras, and on the ninth day of Sadie’s travels, we got a call from Deb at 6am. Sadie appeared on camera in the crate at Dunseith Gardens. Sadie was home at 6:30 am and taking a nap. Missingdogsmass.com is a volunteer, non- profit organization and as far as we are concerned, performs miracles.
Mattapoisett is not only special, but we believe awesome!
Kathy McAuliffe & Mike Corrigan
