ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MySite.Pet, a pet-oriented website design company, has announced this week, in response to all the displaced and lost animals as a result of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, that they are working to help owners find their lost companions. They are offering a free webpage to any family that has lost a pet in these hurricanes.
Leveraging the power of digital marketing to connect pet owners and pets around the country today, MySite.Pet is hoping their pet pages will bring pets back to their rightful owners.
"Lately, natural disasters seem to be occurring at an alarming rate," said Lisa Fasulo, Founder and Owner of MySite.Pet. "Hurricane Katrina, Harvey and now Irma have left their devastating mark on so many. But it's not just people who are suffering. Pets face extraordinary hardships in the aftermath of hurricanes, earthquakes and other events that become chaotic quickly."
In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, tens of thousands of pets are thought to be displaced or missing. Many organizations have rushed in from all parts of the country to help, but it's still nearly impossible to link owners with their pets. Most stray animals are gathered and quickly transferred into adoption or foster situations.
In order to spread awareness, animal groups and organizations are relying heavily on social media to help bridge the gap for the necessary fundraising, fostering and owner location that is needed to give each displaced pet a happy ending.
MySite.pet is asking all pet owners to consider a pet web page for their missing animals. These pages include identifying photos, details, and any other records that are important for that pet's health and well-being.
"This way, with 1 click, people can have immediate access to contact information, and can link to the necessary photos to help track their missing animal down. It's complete efficiency at a typically chaotic time," said Fasulo.
MySite.Pet is offering pet web pages that are designed and hosted for $99 per year but will waive this fee for families that have missing pets from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
