Protecting Pet Owners: Keeping Control of Your Information and Outsmarting Scammers

Scammers can be a real problem for pet owners who are desperately searching for their lost furry friends. We’re here to help you out and protect you from those scammers. When you file a free report with us, we want to make sure that you have full control over your information.

We totally understand that you’d prefer to include a phone number in your lost pet listing so that people can reach you quickly. However, we also recognize that sharing your private phone number on social media might make you uncomfortable. That’s why we give you the option to decide whether or not you want your phone number to be published with your listing. It’s all about keeping you in control.

In addition to that, we take extra precautions when it comes to email addresses. We use masked email addresses, which means your private email address won’t be exposed on social media. This helps to protect your identity and reduces the risk of spam or unwanted messages in your primary inbox. This way, you can feel more secure about sharing your contact information.

Remember, it’s important to check your email account frequently once you’ve filed a report. This is because we may receive sightings or potential matches for your lost or found pet, and we want to make sure you don’t miss any important updates!

So, rest assured that we’ve got your back and we’re doing everything we can to protect your privacy while helping you reunite with your beloved pet. All of our services are completely free. File a report with us at Pet FBI and one of our volunteers will post it to the appropriate state page.
