 Please donate to help Petsonthenet keep helping the pets and people of NZ

Our goal is to reunite EVERY lost pet and to rehome every pet - in need of a home. We need your help to help us support pets, people and shelters so we can keep successfully reuniting and rehoming thousands of pets throughout NZ each year via this community service.

Petsonthenet is run by our (human) founder Kim Buchanan, with one part time customer services person (the lovely Glenys) and a team of volunteers (led by the equally lovely Belinda). Your donation will help us to continue to run and grow the service and to meet ongoing costs of operation such as;

leases / computer purchases, maintenance and replacement
Software support, upgrades & programming
Website and server h
osting and domain name
Power, phone (including a huge number of toll calls) and a massive amount of broadband
Stationery, printing and postage
Advertising and promotions
Accounting and compliance etc

Adding a paid upgrade to your free ad
You can now also support us by adding an "extra" to your free ad, such as an Attention Getter for $5.00. For example if you had a successful adoption or reunion, you might like to post a Success Story listing which is free and upgrade it with a $5 Attention Getter that say "Thank you!" (payment for optional ad upgrades is via by credit card via PayPal)

Donate a skill, service or advertising/promotion opportunity
If you have a relevant skill or service to offer, we would love your help. Please contact us if you have an idea to help.

From time to time we require volunteers. Please see our Volunteers Wanted section to see if we need more volunteers right now, or on our facebook.

If you are able to offer us donated advertising space, or donated "remnant" advertising space of any type, we would be most grateful to have that opportunity to help promote our service.

We would like to thank our current sponsors for their valued support.


It can cost anywhere up to $200 for a display ad for one day in a local newspaper. On the other hand Petsonthenet delivers your 1500 word ad and up to eight colour photos nationwide for as long as you want, for FREE. We also offer personal service, support, advice, checklists, free online searching, SPCA found pet listings etc....No 0900 numbers here..!

We are
 committed to this service remaining free. However one way that we raise funds is by offering optional ad upgrades for extra exposure to Silver or Gold levels. However even our free bronze level ads provide a lot including 1500 word ads, up to eight photos published nationwide for as long as you want, for FREE, video and facebook links etc. Importantly we also publish SPCA found pet listings daily for most major SPCAs.

Prior to Petsonthenet's launch in 2002 there was little in the way of help for lost pets. There was an 0900 service that charged $4 a minute for information you could get for free from the SPCA, but nowhere to post an ad, except for the newspaper or some radio stations broadcast lost pet reports once or twice a week. But it was nowhere near enough or what we wanted, to help find our cat who went missing in 2000. The service we needed did not exist, so we created it - NZ's one nationwide database for lost and found pets, making it easy to find lost pets in one place, not dozens of different disjointed "haystacks" in which to search for elusive "needles"

And of course, you can check this free information online anytime for lost and found pets AND post free ads. Petsonthenet is online and open 24/7 for EVERYONE to share information in one easy place - the public, SPCA's, pounds, shelters, vets etc.

If you have appreciated our service and if you are able to please donate to help us, help the pets.

Thanks so much and purrs for your support in any way.
