Saving Lives reuniting and rehoming more pets via Petsonthenet
warmly welcome all SPCA Centres
listing their found pets or pets for
adoption on our
nationwide database for
lost and found pets. Petsonthenet.co.nz is the recommended
provide for Lost and Found pets for SPCA as part of the Saving Lives campaign.
This is a proven service already used by many SPCAs including Auckland and Wellington
who have both been listing their found pets with us since 2002.
SPCAs that use Petsonthenet greatly increase their
reunion and adoption rates and indeed save more lives.
Petsonthenet is a well established, trusted free community service
set up specifically for the purpose of reuniting all types of lost
pets in NZ. We are also NZ's largest website for pets. The service is totally internet
based, so that anyone can view and place lost and found pet ads 24 hours
a day, 365 days a year. This means pets can be reunited very quickly
and distraught lost pet owners can get online
support and advice any time of the day or night. At times this has
resulted in rapid reunions, sometimes within
minutes. We have reunited lost pets after a very long time...our
longest reunion via petsonthenet was for a cat missing for 2.5
years!. The website is easy to use and designed to be self
servicing for all users. Click here for more

Benefits of using petsonthenet for your SPCA

and enquiries you are getting many times a day about lost pets as I
am ex Auckland SPCA myself and spent a lot of my day (pre
petsonthenet) "counseling" and helping people with lost pets.
Nowadays, SPCAs using petsonthenet have found using our service
makes life easier, saving time, freeing up phone lines and staff, allowing you to provide a better service. Most importantly, it
leads to an increase in reunion rates.

(just click ADVICE on the petsonthenet signpost). People are often emotional and stressed when their pet is missing,

and out the other...! This will not only save you time but the
advice is more likely to be followed when lost pet owners can read
it, print it and refer back to it online. Most
people now have the internet at home, however if they do not,
suggest they try a friend or relatives home, at work, the library or an
Using petsonthenet, the onus is on the owner to list
their lost pet and then search the found pets daily. They then
contact the poster of the ad if they should find any potential match.
This saves a lot of time for your SPCA trying to match an ever
growing list of lost pets - an almost impossible task even with computer
records instead of the old lost pet book we used!
