Recently, the case went viral, with the reward campaign gaging 1.4k reactions, 327 comments and 2.4k shares on Facebook. The post was quickly shared to the Lost & Found Pets, Northern Rivers Facebook page.

"Remmy's family is devastated, it's the not knowing that's so hard and the lack of closure," Anne-Marie said.

"She is not lost, it's been three months, someone has found her and taken her."

"The leads are coming in Australia-wide and a lot are Perth or WA based - but we are pursuing them all - because any animal can be moved out of state and across states within a day or two."
