New stretch target
We will use the extra money to:
1. Increase the number of tags engraved and given to 'joiners'.
2. We will improve the technology to include an Ap, text messaging and consider addoing this feature.
3. We will consider hiring a person to help oversee the growth of Lost.me.uk
WE FIND LOST DOGS: IF YOUR DOG IS LOST YOUR BEST CHANCE OF GETTING IT BACK IS HAVING OTHER CONCERNED OWNERS LOOKING FOR IT.
About the project
How do you find a lost pet? Put your details on a poster and stick them on lamposts? Put your pet's details on a web-site? Tell your friends on Facebook? None of these work quickly enough to be effective and they do not inform the 'right' people that your pet is lost.
What you need to do is tell people who will be interested in helping you find your pet; people who are located in the area where you lost your pet and/or where you live. This is what Lost.me does.
You register your pet with www.Lost.me.uk, describe it, add some pictures and, if subsequently you lose it, Lost.me.uk sends emails immediately to all vets in the postal code where you think you lost your pet and, if different, those in the the postal code where you live. Most importantly, Lost.me.uk also sends emails to ALL Lost.me registered pet owners in those areas.
The best person to find your pet is another pet owner. Lost.me.uk was set up by a pet owner for pet owners. I know how much a lost pet can cause distress and worry. I know also that we're all more than willing to help if someone has lost a pet in our area. That's why Lost.me.uk was set up. The more pet owners join and register their pets, the better Lost.me.uk works.
