Local Businesses, Dedicated Volunteer Make Reunion Possible

Marshfield (OnFocus) – Little Suzie went missing from Marshfield’s WalMart location on June 6th after someone broke the owner’s car window in the parking lot. The car was running with A/C on while her owner made a quick visit inside, but after the window was broken Little Suzie, who is the owner’s therapy dog, bolted out the window and into the weeds by Weiler Convenience Store.

Marshfield Area Pet Shelter Lost and Found Coordinator Megan Jasurda worked with the owner and Weiler’s to place food and a live trap, but was unsuccessful in capturing Little Suzie.

On June 11, Little Suzie was spotted behind Menards, but days of monitoring a trail camera didn’t produce any leads.

Finally, on June 25, employees at Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) spotted Little Suzie in their parking lot. The skittish dog took off, but staff then texted Jasurda, who searched the area and eventually spotted the roaming dog. After monitoring and devising a plan, she was able to place a live trap and safely capture Little Suzie.

After spending 20 days on her own roaming the streets of Marshfield, Little Suzie was ecstatic to be reunited with her owner.

“It takes so many people to make a reunion successful,” said Jasurda. “Thank you to Weiler’s, Solutionz, Kathy who sent me a text, MMCCU for e-mailing me a security camera footage to get a good look at the dog, and to the homeowner who let me place a trap!”

“We just did what we hope anyone would do if they see a dog that needs help,” said David Murphy, MMCCU. “We’re so glad Little Suzie was reunited with her family!”
