The PetLink Pro app is for U.S. and Canadian Animal Professionals (ACOs and
Shelter staff) to use in the field. When Animal Professionals find a lost pet, they can use
PetLink Pro on their phones to look up owner details via the pet’s microchip number and
submit a found pet report to PetLink. PetLink will contact the owner to let them know their
pet has been found and set up reunification.
You can put the microchip number into PetLink Pro on your
phone by keypad or speak the number in. You can also use
the camera to capture the microchip number from the LCD
display of a microchip reader. Using the camera makes it
much faster to transfer the 9- or 15-digit microchip number
from the chip reader to the search function of PetLink. It also
reduces typing errors.
PetLink Pro will search for owner details first in PetLink, then
in PetLink’s Backtrack system and finally in the AAHA Pet
microchip look up tool.
PetLink Pro will help save the lives of lost animals. The
quicker a pet is returned to their owner, the greater
their chance of survival. PetLink Pro allows US Animal
Professionals in the field to contact the owners of lost pets
as soon as they have read the pet’s microchip number. There
is no need to call PetLink, no need to use a computer to look
Animal Professionals can use PetLink Pro to submit a found
pet report to PetLink in 4 easy clicks. PetLink will then notify
owners via SMS, phone and email, that their pet has been
found and organize reunification.
If a lost pet is found by an Animal Professional and that pet
is registered in PetLink, then PetLink Pro will show a photo of
the pet, if available, to confirm identification. PetLink Pro will
also show medical details, if available, for the pet, for example
if a dog is diabetic and needs regular insulin, this information
will be clearly shown. This will be beneficial for the health of
all lost pets.
