We all know the gut-wrenching feeling of realizing your beloved pet has slipped out of a cracked door, under a fence, or out of his or her collar. When a pet goes missing, our neighborhoods are often the first place we turn to get the word out and search.
That’s why, in celebration of National Pet Day, we’re excited to announce a highly-requested feature: the Nextdoor Pet Directory, which allows neighbors to build a directory of all of the pets in their neighborhood. Using the Pet Directory, neighbors can post photos and include descriptions and identifying features of their pets, building a comprehensive hub for the community to get to know other pet owners and, in times of need, a valuable resource for when a pet is lost or has gone missing.
Nextdoor members can simply click on the Pet Directory icon to start adding information about their pet, including a photo, the pet’s name, the type of pet, the breed, color, size, and more.
Once a pet is added to the Nextdoor Pet Directory, the information is shared with members in the community so neighbors can recognize the pets in their neighborhood and be better equipped to help them in times of need. Pet owners can now have peace of mind knowing neighbors who find a lost pet can scroll through the Nextdoor Pet Directory and contact the owner directly through Nextdoor.
We’re excited to include a special deal in partnership with Rover, the leading resource for 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers. Nextdoor members who add their pet to the Pet Directory will be awarded a $25 credit to Rover toward a dog walker or pet sitter of their choosing.*
