    A pizza shop owner is trying to make sure every lost pet gets home and now his effort is going viral. 

    John Sanfratello came up with the idea when he saw a Facebook post about a missing cat. Then he glanced at the stacks of pizza boxes sitting nearby, WPIX reported

    He put two and two together and came up with a plan -- to put missing posters on every pizza box that goes out of Angelo's on Broad Street in Matawan, New Jersey.

    The flyers have a photo of the missing pet, a description and a way to contact the pet's owner.

    So far, at least five owners have asked Sanfratello to get the word out about their missing pets, WABC reported. He offers the service at no charge.

    No pets have been reunited yet but the service just started last week. And the idea may spread and get fur families back together, WPIX reported.

    "Hopefully, more businesses will take part in this. That's our intent -- to reunite as many pets with their families as possible," Sanfratello told WPIX.
