A pizzeria serving the central New Jersey towns of Matawan and Aberdeen is hoping their small act of compassion will make a big difference for lost pets and the families that are missing them.
John Sanfratello, the owner of Angelo’s Pizza in Matawan, came up with the awesome idea after the owner of a missing cat asked to drop off flyers at the restaurant two weeks ago.
“She said her cat has been missing since November which was upsetting,” Sanfratello’s 15-year-old son Anthony told WABC. “But she said she feels that if we put this on our boxes, people in Matawan order here, we’re known locally, that maybe she can be reunited with her cat.”
Thankfully, the missing cat found her way home before any flyers had to be sent out. But, that gave Sanfratello an idea – to offer the service for free to the community. He posted to Facebook and the response has been amazing.
Within two days of posting, two more pet owners reached out with flyers in hopes of being reunited with their lost furry family members.
Angelo’s is hoping their small gesture helps in finding them. We’re hoping neighborhood pizzerias around the country decide to support their communities in the same meaningful way.
Angelo’s Pizza is a family owned business since 1974, serving the Matawan, Aberdeen, Morganville, Old Bridge and surrounding areas.
