Brit + Co Rave About Pawscout Pet Finder

Brit + Co is the latest media site to show Pawscout Pet Finder some love in an article titled “Protect Your Pet With This Cool New Technology.”  Check out the full article http://www.brit.co/pawscout/.

Here are our favorite tidbits:

“A new company called Pawscout has introduced a next-generation pet finder to ensure a lifetime of protection for your furry friend, making sure they NEVER get lost again.”

For only $30, it’s a pretty sweet deal…Pawscout is set to ship in 2015, but early birds/cats/dogs can get a custom-engraved nameplate if they order before December 31, 2014.”





WIRED Loves Pawscout Pet Finder!

We are extremely excited that WIRED showed Pawscout Pet Finder some love in an article titled “This App Uses Your Neighbors’ Phones to Find Your Lost Pet.”  Check out the full article here:  http://www.wired.com/2014/10/pawscout-finds-lost-pets/.

Here are some of our favorite quotes:

“Rather than building on traditional pet-locating methods like microchipping, it’s created a separate connected pet ID tag that tracks your pet’s location by creating a mesh network of smartphones.”

“But it’s when you put the app in lost mode that the full utility of Pawscout comes out…In lost mode, anyone who has the app and comes within 250 feet of your pet can be notified that your pet is lost. Through mesh networking, your pet’s location is updated and relayed to you.”

“…just by downloading the app, you could end up helping someone find their missing four-legged friend.”
