HOW DOES FURTRIEVE WORK

Furtrieve connects to a global cellular network to provide your pet’s location and enable two-way voice communication. Furtrieve then connects into our GPS and social media platform for a truly unique approach to pet tracking.

HOW TO TRACK YOUR PET

On your computer/web browser:

On our home page, click “Locate My Pet” in the top right. This will redirect you to the Furtrieve tracking portal. You will need to sign in with the information card that came with the device. After signing in, you can select which pet you want to track, if you have multiple.

On our mobile app:

After signing in to the Furtrieve mobile app, click “Track My Pet” in the menu.

Mobile App Instructions

SET UP CROWD-NOTIFY

This intuitive mobile feature offers the ability to organize a group to help find your pet. Crowd-Notify can send your pet’s location to pre-selected contacts with the touch of a button. Finally an easy way to enlist your friends, family, and neighbors in retrieving your lost pet. Go to “Crowd-Notify” on the mobile app and add up to 10 contacts! In order to edit contacts, go to web portal and edit contacts. After signing in, click the “add more contacts” button and you’re done! A special link will be generated for your account when you hit the Crowd-Notify button which will show live tracking (in 2 minute intervals) of your pet’s location for 24 hours. The link can be shared with whomever you want. After 24 hours, the link will go dormant.

MOBILE VIRTUAL FENCE

Similar to dropping a pin on a map, this feature will create a 100m or larger radius at any location. If your pet steps outside the radius, you will be notified instantly through the app, and the race on! To activate this feature, tap “Mobile Virtual Fence” in the menu to activate the mobile virtual fence!

CALL YOUR PET (OR THE PERSON WHO FINDS THEM)

Furtrieve also offers two-way communication, which allows you to talk to your pet, or whoever has found them. This feature can be accessed by clicking the “Call my pet” button in our mobile app.

HISTORY

Use the history feature to track where your pet has been the last four months. Tap the “History” button in the mobile app menu. You can view where your pet has traveled to and show his activity. Clicking the bottom right calendar button will allow you to choose a date in the past and the history will display as a map with a line.
