Here’s how it works: Animal owners create dots indicating where the pet was last seen, its breed and contact information. Anyone who finds an animal can create a star through the app, with the same details that hopefully ends with the pet being reunited with its owner.

“They can easily put a found dot on the map and that way hopefully that owner will come across the map and say, ‘Oh my gosh, they have my pet,’” Wittner said.

The app is not just for owners. Wittner said first responders can use the app too.

“They could look at this app and realize, ‘OK, I’m at this house, I’m on the ground,’” Wittner said.

Wittner explained they’re just doing their small part, hoping to make a big difference in the lives of pets and people who have lost everything.
