Today we are extremely excited to announce the beta release of the Pawscout App for Android devices. Since 96% of all smartphone users have Android or iOS devices, that means more than 1 billion devices can now protect our pets by installing the free Pawscout App for iOS or Android.
The Pawscout App turns your phone into a magical pet-finding device. With the free app, your phone can answer an SOS from any pet parent suffering the heartbreak of a missing furry family member. If you install the app and pass within range of a lost pet wearing a Pawscout Pet Finder, Pawscout will be able to alert the owner of his pet’s location. Be a hero and help reunite lost pets with their families!
To install the beta build, please visit:

The more people with the Pawscout App installed, the more pets we’ll be able to reunite with their families. Please encourage all the animal lovers in your life to protect our pets by installing this free app.
As we move closer to shipping out our first units, we’re going to start posting more regular updates to keep you updated on our progress and everything involved in our first large production run. We’re very excited!
This week we officially received our certification for IPX7. An IPX7 designation means that the Pawscout Pet Finder can withstand accidental immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes!
In the next day or two we’ll post photos of our recent factory tour where we saw some of the first Pawscout Pet Finder units come off the line. Stay tuned!
Happy 2015! We are pleased to update you on our shipping schedule. Even though we celebrated the start of 2015 more than a month ago, our friends and manufacturers in China are just about to usher in the Year of the Sheep. As a result, much of the country is taking time off to celebrate with family, which has pushed back our production calendar.
We want to be completely transparent in our production schedule and give you insight into what’s involved in manufacturing and shipping a product:
February 19 – 27: Chinese New Year celebrations
March 2: Mold for the Pawscout Pet Finder goes into production
March 9: First units start to come off the line.
March 16: Each Pawscout Pet Finder undergoes a 17-point quality inspection to make sure it’s waterproof, durable and will keep your pet completely protected.
: Retail packaging is folded and assembled into our sleek design. Check it out
March 31: First Pawscout units are shipped by air from China to our U.S.-based engraver.
Mid-April: Pawscouts are shipped to users on a first-ordered, first-delivered basis.
If you have any questions, please feel free to write to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are extremely sorry for the delay but we promise that the wait will be worthwhile. If you want to see photos of the Pawscout tag, our retail package and the factory where it’s all coming together, check out this link: http://ppl.ug/pDRm_WWNN8E/.
A family pet is lost every seven seconds. One in three pets is lost in his lifetime. Only one in ten pets returns home. “Lost dog” flyers can’t convey the heartbreak of a missing pet.
Pawscout created the next-generation digital dog tag and pet tracker that makes sure you always know where your pet is. The Pawscout Pet Finder tag works with your mobile phone to provide real-time tracking for your dog or cat.
HOW IT WORKS
Create a profile for your pet with a photo and info on special needs, dietary restrictions and any medications.
Set up a virtual leash and receive alerts if your pet strays.
If your pet wanders off, simply sign into the app to see his last known location. If he doesn’t turn up, flag him as missing to have the community looking for him immediately—no flyers required.
If your pet comes within 200 feet of any Pawscout user, you will receive an alert with your pet’s location. And if a Pawscout user finds your pet, he will know how to contact you and to take care of your pet until you’re reunited.
Pawscout Pet Finder costs only $29.95—with no monthly fees. This one-time purchase provides a lifetime of protection for your pet. Pawscout Pet Finder tags come in an assortment of colors to keep your pet safe—and stylish.
