Pets Located - Automatically and proactively reuniting you with your pet 24/7

Searching for your pet – 24 hours a day

Pets Located is an independent online resource designed specifically to automatically and proactively reunite missing pets with their owners.

Our unique service continually, automatically matches lost dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, ferrets, guinea pigs, snakes/reptiles (or any other lost pet) with animals which are listed on the site as 'found' and e-mails registered owners as soon as a potential match is made. We cover the whole of the UK.

There have been numerous reports recently about con-artists demanding money for the return of lost pets - which they don't actually have
People who have lost pets have been targeted by fraudsters who have phoned them to demand £1000 for the 'safe return' of their pets – or suffer horrible consequences. These fraudsters don't actually have the pets but once the money has been transferred, there is no way to get it back. Read More …
There have been reports of people being conned out of thousands of pounds. Please be very wary of making your own contact details available on posters or Social Media.
Posters created through this website do not include personal contact details – they show a Pet Reference Number and contact can only be made with you via the Secure Messaging Service on this website once a Finder has validated their details. All information is also held in an audit trail with a full history of any changes made

Why use Pets

Pets Located uses a proprietary matching engine to continually match 'lost' pets against 'found' pets on the database. This takes place 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Whenever a lost pet's details are deemed to be a good match to a found pet's details, an e-mail is automatically sent to the owner of the lost pet alerting them of the potential match. Communication can then be made with the Finder through this site's secure messaging service.

At Pets Located we have a menagerie of animals between us and understand how distressing it can be when a pet goes missing. Who's to say when your pet might turn up? Even if you have given up hope, we will still be searching and matching on your behalf during the whole time you have an active registration.

A Successful Pets Located Reunite (April 2021)

Pets reunited with their owners - Lost Tortoise/Terrapin/Turtle reunited through [142610]
Mickey escaped from the garden and we spent a week searching for her and put up 50 posters as well as registering her with Pets Located. I received an email from Pets Located to say there was a match for Mickey. When I contacted [the finder], I was told she had been taken to the RSPCA Animal Hospital at Putney. I phoned the Hospital, answered some ID questions and they said, we have your tortoise! We collected her the next morning and had her microchipped. She's nearly 100 and been in the family for 64 years and we don't want another repetition of this! We don't know how she reached the area she was collected by the RSPCA but very thankful I registered her with Pets Located as we would never have gone to the area she was collected from.
I anyone loses or finds a pet, I recommend using Pets Located.

A Long-Term-Missing Successful Reunite

Spot, Lost Cat Reunited by
Spot was located after 4 months missing. He was put on the website and I went to the location, which was only 1 mile away, I confirmed he was mine and a member of the community managed to catch him. He's been home for 10 days now and apart from a check at the vets, resulting in 24 ticks being removed, he's settled back in wonderfully.
