There’s a Free Amber Alert Service for Lost Pets

Can you guess the day of the year when your pet is most likely to run off or go missing?  It’s coming up.

More dogs and cats go missing around the Fourth of July than any other time of year thanks to all the fireworks.  So this is in the news right now . . .

There’s a free service called FidoAlert that’s like an Amber Alert for pets.  And it doesn’t cost anything.

If you sign up at, they send you a free I.D. tag with their name on it and a QR code.

If someone finds your pet and scans the QR, you get a text and email to let you know they’ve been found.

Some people prefer it because you don’t have to list any personal info on the tag, like your phone number.  Like a lot of sites, they make money by collecting data about you, and your pet.  But the tag itself it free.
