After losing a pet, rapidly notifying those in your immediate area is crucial to the successful return of your pet. But knocking on doors could now be a thing of the past.
Moosia LLC this week released the Missing Pet Finder app in an effort to help pet owners publicize the news quickly and target the immediate area where the animal went missing to increase the likelihood for a happy resolution.
With the new app, every missing pet has a unique and often fascinating story which other app users can follow in the group chat section. Here they can also contact the owner, help out and make friends.
Pet owners can coordinate the whole search campaign through the app, enabling them to target a specific location, rapidly print posters with privacy-enhancing quick response codes and utilize the extensive social media sharing capabilities provided.
“We know from personal experience what valued members of the family pets are, and in some cases, they are a person’s whole reason for living,” said co-founder of Missing Pet Finder Jodie Milford. “The devastation caused when a pet goes missing is heartbreaking. We aim to alleviate that by reuniting loved ones through the app. We’re looking to gain widespread adoption, even by those who don’t own pets but like the idea of helping others.”
Milford continued, “The app is fun too. Though of course, there is the occasional sad ending, most owners eventually find their pets, and it’s wonderful to know that you played a part in making that happen.”
The Missing Pet Finder app is free to download and available now from the App Store.
In the next version of the app, the team will focus heavily on social features.
“We aim to make Missing Pet Finder a fully-fledged chat platform that can go head to head with WhatsApp and other big tech offerings,” said Milford. “People are disaffected by the tech giants who seem to be involved in controversy daily. They’re looking for alternatives: Why not choose an app that has a positive social impact instead?”
