Walkthrough

1. Download the app

Search for ‘GPC Smart’ on the App Store or GooglePlay.

2. Register Your Free Account

Please use proper names, although they can be fictional. Please do not add information that is illegible (ex. “hasdfghjkl”.) When inputing an address for map purposes, select a “real” address (use a business if you’re not comfortable using your own)

3. Register Your Pet

Please use information that would appear real and accurate. If you select a stock photo, please mark the breed appropriately to best reflect the image. Upload multiple images, and if you’re using your own pet include a close up photo of an eye and their nose. These will serve to test future identification technologies in the future.

4. Mark Your Pet As “Lost”

Go back to your pets profile to mark your pet as lost. You should receive an email from us with step by step instructions on how to help locate your lost pet. Please check your spam folder if you do not see it show up.

5. Check Out The Pet Map – See Your Lost Pet

On the home screen – click on the pet map button at the bottom. Location services must be turned on for an accurate feed, otherwise, it will mark you elsewhere. Your pet must be marked as “lost” to show up on this map (this can be done on your pet profile). If you do not see your pet on the map after marking lost, you may need to zoom out.

6. Lets Find Your Pet

Send an email to [email protected] after marking your pet as lost. Include the following details in your email:

  1. Mention “I have marked my pet as lost”
  2. Include your pets tag ID number that corresponds to your pet profile. We will go in and scan the tag to simulate they’ve been found, and you should receive a notification its been scanned.

7. Bring Your Pet Home

Check the map after your pets ID has been scanned by us. It should show you where they have traveled after being marked lost, and the location of where they’ve been scanned. Again, you may need to zoom out on the map. If you can see the location has moved, go and mark your pet as “found” on their profile.

A: Metal tags are still in use in most jurisdictions. These tags provide limited information and are not stored in a database that crosses municipal boundaries; each one is responsible for its database.

A: We believe that pets are best protected when they have visible identification and a backup form of identification like a microchip. A microchip requires a specialized reader, whereas a GPC Smart Tag can be readily scanned on any smartphone. Our tag will ensure a pet is Returned to Owner (RTO) quickly to avoid a stressful trip to a shelter. Tags and microchips aren’t substitutes for each other; they’re complementary, and each is useful in locating a lost pet in different ways.

  • Primary Phone # with voicemail, including area code
  • Alternate secondary contacts (Family, neighbor, and friends). Include your veterinarian’s number

  • Proof of ownership records

Include at least one phone number: home, work, or mobile number. List a phone number you are likely to answer or have voicemail enabled. If you have a secondary number, include it too. Include your area code, and if you’re traveling with your pet be sure to add the country code. Don’t forget to verify the contact information.
