New app helps find missing pets

  • 0

SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - Nothing is harder for a pet lover than when their pet goes missing, so one Sarasota man is working to create something to help distraught pet owners find their furry friend.

The 'Pet Detective' app, created by Sarasota native Kevin Angell helps owners find their lost pets by calling on those in the community to help.

Angell says the service is more personalized then posting to a local page on social media or putting up flyers.

"You create a profile for your pet and then if they ever get lost, you hit one button and people in your area within a two-mile radius will be notified," says Angell, "it's essentially a pet amber alert."

'Pet Detective' is currently available on the Apple app store for iPhone users.
