Setting up a Pet Alert for your lost dog


When dogs are lost or when they escape they are a lot more social than cats and can travel further on their own four feet in a short period of time. Depending on how friendly your dog is towards humans and other dogs it can get noticed pretty quickly and if approachable, may be taken to a vet or a pound. If the dog gets picked up on the street by a driver it can be taken a lot further to a different suburb or town.

Alert Map Explanation


If you are tight on budget consider investing in one or the other: notifying as many of the general public (RED CIRCLE) as you can to get a quick sighting or lead from someone in the neighbourhood who may have seen your dog on the streets; or notifying a wide range of our Pet Network members (BLUE CIRCLE) to make sure that you reach even the most distant Pet Professionals. Investing in both is considered the best option.


Do not rely on your pets microchip.  We have had an alarming number of cases where a dog was not scanned, the chip failed or just plainly was not found because the poor dog could not keep nice and still. Therefore, you need to let as many people and organisations know about your dog as you can to increase your chances.


Concentrate most of your time on canvassing the neighbourhood and calling your dog's name, but don't forget to visit your pound regularly. Do not rely on phone conversations with verbal descriptions as they can be very misleading.

Cirsium"Schipperke is back home and grudgingly sharing her favourite chair. Even the neighbours received a text, and they were on holiday"

Nero"Thanks to your business we luckily located him last year when he went missing after a storm. It's great to have a support network like your business and I have/will always recommend your website to all my friends with pets."

Estelle & Nero

Ringa"'Dad absolutely loves his dogs, so when Ringa went missing during the time of thunder storms, I was just so pleased to have found your website.
It was comforting knowing that other animal lovers within and around our area, were on the watch for Ringa.
Many people within our street received the telephone call, which then provided us with a far greater scope to find him.
Within 24 hours, a lovely lady had spotted him and both Dad and Ringa were reunited.
I’ve kept involved with Lost Pet Finders & when I receive an alert of a pet missing in my area, I’m certainly on the lookout.
There’s nothing better than reuniting our beautiful fur babies with their owners.
Thanks for a wonderful service! '"
