Rovertags new product is helping thousands of people find their lost pets

Pets can go missing quickly, whether through an open door or gate at home or when frightened by loud noises, and it can be a traumatic experience for both pets and the people who love them.

When Jennifer Woods found out that she had lost her pet, golden retriever, Jackie, she panicked first. But, soon, she realized that panicking wouldn’t do any good and pulled herself together. After a week of a dedicated search, Jennifer got a message from a girl who lived a few blocks away. It turned out that some kind people found her lost dog Jackie and took her home to take care of while the pet’s owner was found.

Jennifer and her pet were lucky enough to reunite since less than 24% of pets reunite with their owners after getting lost. 

Jennifer’s story isn’t unique. In the US, 1 in 3 pets gets lost during their lifetime. Pets go missing for a number of reasons:

–  Lack of security in a house. Open doors and windows can provide dogs and cats with the chance to run free, which is a natural urge for any animal. No matter how loved a pet is, boredom and curiosity can always get the better of them.

–  Loud noises. Fireworks, gunshots, yelling, and other loud noises can make pets want to run. Dogs are much more loyal than cats, which are more likely to go missing and then can turn up again weeks or months later. On the other hand, dogs are more at risk of going missing if an unexpected opportunity occurs, or they are off the lead when on a walk. 

–  New home or owners. If there have been changes at home that unsettle them, new owners, or moving houses, pets may go in search of familiar surroundings.

–  Mating urges. A pet that hasn’t been neutered can also cause an animal to escape the home. 

As for where pets might go, that depends on the animal and surrounding area. Cats, for example, might routinely visit other families or those who feed them every so often. Some cat owners don’t get worried unless they’re away from home for longer than a few days.

Whereas for dogs, losing them is more serious and something that requires immediate action. Smaller dogs are more often than not recovered within no more than a 2-mile radius of where they ran from. Whereas larger dogs can potentially run as far as 5 miles from home. 

Remember, pets aren’t wild. Not unlike people, they are going to search for a way to stay safe, warm, and find food, even if they can’t find how to get home. There are some steps to take to look for a missing pet: 

–  Contact neighbors
–  Print missing pet flyers
–  Distribute the news on social media
–  Call pet organizations
–  Search again after looking once 

There’s always a high chance that beloved pets come back safe and well after an unexpected adventure. To prevent such sad situations, consider several prevention measures like:

– QR Pet tags, people who find pet can quickly call their owner or scan the QR code on the back of the tag and send a message to owner’s online profile. In a meantime owner will receive the GPS location of the scanning place. 

– GPS trackers on pet collars to trace pet’s real-time location. 

– Microchips that allow veterinary services to scan the pets and find the owner’s contacts. 

– Tattoos that make pet’s recognizable among similar breeds.
