AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW) -- "He's very loveable he's very sweet and they really loved him next door," says Sandra Edwins.

It is not easy for her to talk about her missing babies. Four-month old Snuggles vanished in September and just this week, her baby, named Bear darted out of the house and into the woods.

"He's sweet a little bit aggravating sometimes," says Edwins. But she says loveable none-the-less. Frantic to find Snuggles, a black lab and Bear, a black Shih Tzu-Pekinese mix.

Edwins turned to FindToto.com.

The online pet locator service claims to be the original amber alert emergency broadcast system for lost, stolen and found pets.

"They will call 500 or the 750, 1,250. I think they go up to 2,500 and of course the more people you want called the more the price is," says Edwins.

The company's website says it enters the exact address where your pet was last seen and will make automated phone calls to homes within a radius of where your pet disappeared from also providing specific details about your pet.

"Their fees started at $89 and went up to $400 or something but they are on the Better Business Bureau. As well as being accredited the BBB gives Findtoto.com an A rating and the company is in good standing with the California Secretary of State where the business is headquartered.

While Edwins remains optimistic that both Bear and Snuggles come home, she hopes the website will work for her. "And while they were expensive to me, the animals are worth it," says Edwins.

We did find a local man who was reunited with his dog Brutus the same day he disappeared.
