Mission Statement

Indy Lost Pet Alert is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that utilizes social media to reunite lost and found pets with their families for free. We work with the community, shelters and rescues to decrease the number of pets entering our shelters, as well as increase the number of pets returned to their owners from shelters.

Description

ILPA was founded in March of 2012 by Danielle Emerson, a former marketing manager for a local Humane Society and animal rescue volunteer and foster. Danielle’s work with ILPA has changed the way people look for their pets in Indianapolis and surrounding areas.

Our biggest goal is to help save pet lives by getting lost and found pets home before they end up in our already over-crowded shelters. In addition to this goal, we educate and information our local citizen on pet topics and resources.

ILPA (Indy Lost Pet Alert) now has more than 56,000 Facebook Followers and 2,500 Twitter Followers. More than 21,000 pets have been reunited with their families since 2012.

ILPA is staffed by dedicated Indy Area volunteers who post lost and found pets 365 per year! Our posting hours are primarily from about 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
