#mobiPET Review and Giveaway

mobiPET is the first pet tracking and location system that sends out an Amber Alert within 5 minutes if your pet goes missing.

Here's a great graphic to give you an overall idea of how mobiPET works.

The vital difference with mobiPET is that an alert goes out with a picture of your pet as soon as you notify them that your pet is missing, after you use your phone or computer to register them.

The fact that this is a photo based system solves the problem for the pet that get's loose without its collar and tags on.

According to some statistics, 10,000 pets are reported missing every week and without ID. 90% of lost pets never return home.

Oskar is microchipped and licensed with the county and is registered with a tag based "missing pet" service but the 2 tags are on his harness, which he only wears on walks.  Most of the time, he is naked in the house and while running and playing in the fenced in yard.  mobiPET would give him the best chance for recovery if he were to inadvertently get loose.
mobiPET tag and 3 key tags
Just like with a missing child, the sooner people are aware of the situation, the better the chance of recovery.  Within minutes of reporting the pet lost, local registered neighbors within a 2 mile radius will receive a text to their cell phone with a picture and the location of where the pet went missing.

An email containg a photo a is also generated that goes to Animal Shelters, Vets and Boarders within a 30 mile radius.

This can even be used based upon GPS if the pet is lost while on vacation!  Knowing when and were a pet went missing allows for more people to be on the lookout in the immediate area.

Made in the USA, mobiPET launched it's crowdfunding campaign to raise $15,000 to launch it's lost pet photo alert program. mobiPET is the first ever security/recovery system for pets utilizing patented mobile image recognition technology. Check it out over at getmobiPET.com.

Now for the giveaway! mobiPet has provided us with 2 mobiPET tags for 2 different Pet Blogs United readers. Each prize includes:

mobiPET tag
Lifetime mobiPET service
3 key tags with information on what to do if your pet goes missing

mobiPET is only launching in the United States at the moment, so this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Hi Pam and Oskar!

Mobi Pet sounds like a great product. Our kitties are all indoor cats, but they all wear ID collars, just in case!

Nola said...

I'm interested! Nola has a flawless recall, is a velcro dog, and wears ID 24/7. But you can never be too careful! nolabuggyATgmailDOTcom

It is always fun to read other reviews of a product I reviewed. I did not see that graphic, it is a nice one! Good review!

we have the same issue - both boys are micro chipped and registered with Home Again but all the tags are on their harness which they only wear when they go out - they don't wear collars at home and although we have 8 foot high fences - you just never know. Even though we keep the gates locked - we had some straight line winds that blew part of out fence down - luckily I was home but if I wasn't and they got out I would be frantic!

that sounds like a super idea. I hope it will be available once everywhere. Many thanks for an interesting post! Have a great saturday
