PawBoost is working to make this worst care scenario as short and painless as possible.
Describing themselves as a service akin to an AMBER Alert, PawBoost uses their tools and resources to reunite missing pets with their families fast.
So far, since starting the 2014, the service has helped over 350,000 pets return home. The key to PawBoost’s success is their Facebook community.
When someone loses a pet, all they have to do is report the pet missing on PawBoost Facebook page for their area; this will trigger notifications to all PawBoost email subscribers and app users local to the lost pet. The missing pet is also added to PawBoost’s lost and found database and a printable flier is created for the concerned owner to distribute around their neighborhood.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for your pet to go missing to interact with PawBoost. With over 3 million pet lovers making up the PawBoost community, the service has a reach that makes a difference when it comes to finding missing pets. This is a community any animal lover can become a part of at anytime, by following their local PawBoost page on Facebook, subscribing to their email list and downloading their app.
