Black pitbull dog roaming JP this evening (May 6)

Hi all,

Just saw a large black pitbull roaming up Chestnut (from Mozart in the direction of Stony Brook) about half an hour ago (6:15ish). I called Animal Control who said they'd "see if they could send someone out," and MSPCA and ARL were closed/not answering phones when I called.

Keep an eye out so we can help get that guy/gal home and also make sure our neighbors are safe!

He didn't seem aggressive - didn't hear any growling/barking and I saw him walk past a couple…

Have you seen a black cat??

Our cat ran away yesterday morning from the corner of Carolina and Everett. She is black with a white spot under her chin and one white toe. She is 18 years old and fairly skinny but in good health. She's also not super friendly to strangers but has a very sweet heart. If anyone sees her would you please let me know?
Thanks! Rachel (617-905-4646)
