I did not know where to go or what to do after we lost Oliver
(PRWEB) October 01, 2010
Launched in October 2009 by Atlanta resident Dawn K. Hull, OliverAlert.com is a website designed to help people who have lost or found a beloved pet. For individuals with missing animals, the site offers important information, helpful links, shelter listings and best practices. OliverAlert.com utilizes the vast Facebook network to issue Oliver Alerts for missing companion animals all over the world.
According to the American Humane Association, roughly 17 percent of lost dogs and 2 percent of lost cats ever find their owners. Lost pets become labeled as “strays” and nearly 20 million of them are euthanized each year because their owners cannot be located.
After losing her dog, Oliver, Hull realized the importance of immediate action and accessible resources for other pet owners dealing with this traumatic situation. “I did not know where to go or what to do after we lost Oliver,” said Hull, “I created Oliver Alert for Facebook and OliverAlert.com to offer a collection of valuable tools to help reunite missing animals with their owners. I wish I had a site like this when we lost Oliver.”
Since its launch last October, OliverAlert.com has encountered a series of successes. In January 2010, the site was named “Monthly Best Site” after being nominated as the “Cool Dog Site of the Day” by Dogmark.net. In July 2010, a Georgia family was reunited with their dog, Koby, after he had been missing for seventeen months, brought back together through social networking from an Oliver Alert published on Facebook. Jenna Stregowski, a Registered Veterinary Technician of About.com, listed OliverAlert.com as one of nine “websites that post lost pet listings and offer tips for finding lost pets.” Recently in September 2010, a popular pet news website, TheDailyTail.com, published a story about Oliver and how Oliver Alert began.
“We are excited about our anniversary. Ultimately, a family has their dog back because of our website and that is the best reward possible. I look forward to the continued growth of OliverAlert.com and the reunions that will take place in the future,” said Hull.
OliverAlert.com is a free collection of advice and a guide to the websites to help individuals who have lost or found a beloved pet. The website offers valuable tools, helpful links, shelter listings and best practices for animal lovers with a missing companion animal. We use social networking and Internet resources to help reunite pets with their families. OliverAlert.com publishes Oliver Alerts all over the world through the vast Facebook social networking website.
