Q:  I work for a shelter/rescue.  Can I use this service?
A:  Absolutely, all shelters and pet rescue organizations are welcome.  Feel free to post multiple pets.

Question #3:

Q:  How are shelters notified?
A:  After your lost pet ad is placed, we email your pet's profile to our database of shelters in your area.  We have no control over any of the shelters and cannot guarantee any action on their behalf.  Our service simply sends them an alert email with the pet's profile--what the shelter does with the info is completely up to them.

Q:  My picture is not in a .jpg or .gif format - what can I do?

  • Electronic gift card or a mailed gift card.

Question #9:

Q:  Why are rewards for Petsmart, Walmart, & Petco only?  Are you associated with these companies?
A:  We are not associated with these stores in any way.  We simply chose them for their nationwide appeal & the fact that they sell pet related products.  Gift cards to other stores are not currently available as rewards.

Question #10:

Q:  I posted a Found Ad for a pet and returned the pet to the owner before a Lost Ad was posted.  Am I still eligible for a reward?
A:  Maybe.  You will receive a reward for any pet that has a Lost Ad posted (it does not matter when the Lost Ad is posted)—if the Lost Ad is posted after a pet is returned, the finder IS eligible for a reward.

Question #11:

Q:  My pet is home safe thanks to your service.  How can I thank you?
A:  We love hearing stories of pet reunions.  You can send us your story at  We may even post your story on the site.
