MISSING/LOST EQUINE, – “Kitty” – Michigan
Allegan (Allegan County), MI Saturday August 12, 2017
Kitty was last seen on August 12, 2017 according to Tali Sorenson. Ms. Sorenson advised that they were camping at Ely Lake when another campsite lit fireworks which spooked Kitty. She ran through her portable corral at 12:30 a.m.
Ms. Sorenson asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating her horse. Ms. Sorenson advised that Allegan County Sheriff Department has been notified of the missing horse.
Stolen Horse International, a nonprofit organization also known as NetPosse.com, is well known as the “lost and found’ place for horses on the internet for the equine industry. NetPosse.com offers horse theft and equine ID education and assist in search and recovery of stolen or missing horses, as well as other equine equipment.
“Kitty was born May 2016, 5 miles from my home. I brought her home the day she was weaned.”, says Tali Sorenson. “This was her first camping trip and was just going into her third might when another campsite lit fireworks. She ran through her portable corral at 12:30 a.m. Leaving my older senior horse behind.” Ms. Sorenson went on to tell Stolen Horse International that Kitty left down the main driveway exiting on or near 116th Avenue. She was believed to be heading west towards 56th. They are very worried about Kitty and desperately want to find her.
On August 12, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Sorenson and, in short order, began distributing the information via their NetPosse Alert (the horse community’s Amber Alert) on the Internet to hundreds of social media groups and private email contacts in an effort to rally the public to help the family.
You will find Kitty’s webpage with information and a printable flyer in his NetPosse.com listing, which is where any updates or leads will be posted. Anyone interested in helping can search for report number NR005302 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5302
“Circulating the flyer for Kitty as well as the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as they could be anywhere by now. These flyers are one tool that brings home many horses and must be posted in as many public places as possible,” says Debi Metcalfe, founder of Stolen Horse International. “And remember, not everyone has internet access. Please post Kitty’s flyer in public places as well.”
Pictures, flyer, contact information, updates and other information are on the NetPosse webpage to identify this case quickly when calling in a tip. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Tali Sorenson, Allegan County Sheriff Department or Stolen Horse International with any information.
