"My pet is missing! What can I do?"

Helping Milford's missing pets find their way home.

Sadly, every year, 5 millon pets go missing. Unfortunatly, less than 20% make it home safely. Missing Pets of America (MPA) and Milford Patch give pet owners the ability to do so much more than staple flyers on telephone poles and search neighborhoods on foot. Simply, email me at traci.weber@missingpetsofamerica.com a picture of your lost (or found) pet along with information about when and where the pet was last seen and your contact information and I will immediatley post a blog on Patch and activate the "MPA Network."

Our pets count on us to love and protect them. By using the viral power of Patch and Facebook, my hope is to unite the animal lovers of Milford by creating a network that works to bring our beloved pets home.

Please bookmark this blog and save my email address. Use them when you need to and share them with others that need our help.

Like MPA on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/MPAmerica to become part of the wonderful network of caring, compassionate pet owners.

Thank you,

Traci Weber

Missing Pets of America sounds like a great resource for pet owners, made even better by using the network of the Patch. Great idea, good luck!

Sounds like a network that would help greatly. We had a Golden Retriever who went missing when she was about six months...just followed a regular walker but ended up in a neighborhhod too far to know her way home. We only found her after a friend mentioned he overheard a conversation in a diner that this family had her. We found her safe and sound. Needless to say a great resource like MISSING PETS would have helped so much.

Congratulations!! What a great idea to help families locate missing pets. I hope we never have to use it but it's comforting to know that a network such as yours does exist. Thanks Traci!!

I think what you are offering the local communities is absolutely fantastic. Me being an animal lover myself, it's comforting to know that god forbid myself or anyone I knew lost their pet, we have a great source to go to. I commend you for what you are doing and am behind you 100%! I do not have a Facebook page but will get the word out in other ways. I think what you are doing will go very far and help many people. THANK YOU FOR HELPING OUR FURRY FRIENDS!

I think this is Awesome!! if there was any one i can think of that would be a part of an organization like this it would be you. I know your compassion for animals that are hurt and i know you will stop at nothing to be able to help someone find a lost furry family member. This is a great thing you're doing and I will most definitely recommend this website to all of my friends and family!!!

Wonderful idea. The most effective way to find a missing pet is to get the word out. Thank you for looking out for our furry best friends!

Great idea..I'd like to see it take off locally so we can use social networking for good use.
