About this app

Lost a pet? PawBoost is here to raise local awareness for your missing family member!

PawBoost is like an AMBER Alert for lost pets. Over 5 million pet lovers have signed up for our local lost & found pet alerts. This compassionate group of do gooders is called the PawBoost Rescue Squad.

The Rescue Squad has helped reunite over 1 MILLION lost pets with their families! And whether you have a lost dog, lost cat, lost bird, or lost something else entirely – the Rescue Squad is here to help you, too.

If you have LOST or FOUND a pet, you can report it by downloading the app, creating an account, then clicking the 'Report' button. Note: You will need a photo of your pet in order to complete the report.

Here's what will happen next:

1. Your lost or found pet will be posted to the PawBoost-powered Facebook page for your area. Be sure to comment on the post so that you will get notified when other people comment.

2. Alerts will go out to local PawBoost email subscribers and app users.

3. Your pet will be added to our lost & found, the largest lost & found pets database on the web with thousands of pets added every day. Be sure to check our database frequently so you don’t miss out on a connection!

4. We'll create a printable flyer for your lost or found pet. Post these around your neighborhood and hand them out to neighbors and local businesses.

5. You can supercharge your PawBoost Alert with a locally-targeted Facebook or Instagram ad campaign. Get more views, more shares, more leads, and most importantly: A better chance of a happy reunion.

If you need help with your account, we are here for you 365 days a year! Please email us at android@pawboost.com, and make sure to have your pet's 7-digit PawBoost ID handy so we can help you as quickly as possible :)

Great app for lost & found animals but I'm rating it 4 stars because I believe there are a couple of improvements that need to be made. First, it would be very helpful if there was an icon to touch on the app, that would open your post and allow you to edit with updated information. Also it would save people scrolling time if the posts were listed in time order from when they were posted or updated.

App doesn't work right. I'll get an alert notification on my phone "Buddy has gone missing near you" or whatever. I click on the notification and get shown a totally different animal that got lost 20 miles away and 9 months ago. Worthless. App should automatically sort in reverse chronological order and based on my current approximate location. I can't understand why it doesn't do this.

All in all, a wonderful service. There are some little things that would make it better, e.g., offer a free service for people who dont have money in their budget for a lost pet. Of course it would include fewer of services listed in the most inexpensive service. And it would make it easier to make chsnges in an individual's profile data, e.g., zip code. My cat is missing and i am using the service.

Hi, It’s free to add a pet to PawBoost, which includes posting to the local lost pets Facebook page, emailing local members of our Rescue Squad and adding your pet to our lost & found. We are continuously battling the lost and found pet scams and are actively trying to help our users avoid these scams. For more information: help@pawboost.com
