LostPetie: Introducing the Pet Amber Alert System

Have you ever thought about what you would do if your pet went missing? Wouldn’t it be great if people in your area could receive an immediate notification to keep a lookout? With LostPetie that can be a reality.

LostPetie is a pet Amber Alert service inside the GoPetie app. Once registered with the service you can send out a notification including your pet’s photo, description and last known location to everyone else with the app in your area.

How likely is it your pet will go missing? The American Humane Association estimates that about one in three pets will go missing in their lifetime. More than 10 million companion pets go missing in the United States every year.

The most common way lost pets are found is by physically searching the vicinity in which they were last seen. The ASPCA reports that 49 percent of lost dogs and 30 percent of lost cats were found by searching their neighborhood. This means that timing and location is everything! Getting many sets of eyes on your neighborhood quickly is the best chance you have to find your pet.

Being able to alert other pet lovers in your community immediately makes it more likely that your pet will be found before it can wander too far away or get hurt by wild animals or vehicles. Once reported the alert can be edited with new information including sightings so that the most recent information is in your neighbors hands.

Unlike posting and sharing on Facebook or other social platforms LostPetie uses GPS to send a push notification to people in the area your pet was last spotted. This means the information will be seen promptly and won’t require someone to refresh their social media channels and hope the algorithms show them your post.

Once your pet is found you can mark them as ‘found’ and the alert will disappear.

Get started by downloading the free GoPetie app on the App Store or Google Play and toggling to LostPetie on the home screen menu.
