How Pet Amber Alert Works
In this article I'd like to tell you about a pet amber alert website that will help you find your dog or cat should it become lost. It's called petamberalert.com. One reason for the simplicity of the name is people can remember it. So I went into their website to learn how petamberalert.com can help you find a missing pet.
They are the original pet finder service and has been online since 2005. Most of the pet finder services found online are copycats from this site. PetAmberAlert has been given the Verisign, Truste and McAfee seals proving they are a legitimate company.
Their plans aren't free, but they are very reasonable in what they charge for their services. Here are some of the features their plans offer.
1. The process begins in less than an hour after you fill out the online paperwork. So it's fast, which means a better chance of finding your pet.
2. The website works 24/7 so there is no "down" time waiting for the search to begin.
3. Posters are made and phone calls (providing not on the do not call list) are made to neighbors. As an example 25 posters can be faxed to local businesses for only $30. They send out alerts from 15 to 100 miles from where your pet was last seen. Imagine the number of people a missing pet poster at a business near your home will reach. You will receive confirmation when calls and posters go out.
I don't know about all of you, but I always look at a missing pet poster anywhere I see one.
The phone call alert will try a neighbor's phone number 4-6 times and if it reaches an answering machine, a detailed message about the missing pet is left.
They have the highest nationwide "found" rate of any pet finder company in the country due to this successful phone/fax notification system.
4. Alerts are sent to animal shelters within a 15-100 mile radius so if your pet is brought in, PetAmberAlert is immediately notified.
5. Your pet will remain in their database for 360 days or until you call them informing them the pet has been found.
6. The homepage has a Neighborhood Watch Alert option that allows you to sign up to be notified of any missing pets in your neighborhood. Simply click here and enter your state, zip code and email address. You'll be helping pets in your neighborhood just by joining.
7. Their find rate is 80% for alerts sent within the first week and 60% for alerts sent within 6 weeks. Still, it's never too late to sign up for their service.
8. Their service fee covers up to three pets who go missing at the same time. This was the case with the story I did on Tere Barret's 3 dogs in N.C., who are still missing.
PetAmberAlert also offers a booklet on how to find a missing pet.
I hope none of you ever need their services, but I wanted to simplify things for you should you ever need a pet finder service. This is the best I've found on the internet.
P.S. I am running into some negativity on this site, so please Google it and do your research before deciding to use them. This holds true for any business you pay for a service. If anyone has used their services, please comment and let the readers here know how it worked out for you.

Here are a few missing dog stories I've done on hubpages.
These three dogs are still missing!
To my knowledge, this dog is also still missing.
