The Tri-City News’ Diane Strandberg has written a small article about our crowd funding campaign. You can read it at tricitynews.com/news/missing-a-pet-they-have-an-app-for-that-1.2128702.
From the article:
Missing pets can be a tragedy for a family but a solution for finding them may be at hand thanks to a group of Coquitlam high school students.
Lost pet posters aren’t up to the job because the information is often sketchy and valuable time can be lost between creating and putting up posters, and waiting for a call.
The students who attend School District 43’s Inquiry Hub think they have a solution with FindALostPet, an app that links people with missing pets with people who may see a wandering dog or cat, or who may be willing to search for the animal.
The idea is to have a map that shows in real time where pets have gone missing along with photos and information about missing animals, alerts and secure ways to contact people if a pet has been found.
