Register your Pet with WPLP

BEFORE your pet is lost… Advance registering a pet’s photo and owner-contact information at WinterParkLostPets.com helps ensure that found pets could be quickly identified and reunited with their owners.

How it works: Pet registration information is confidential, secure and not shared. When the photo of a found pet is uploaded to WinterParkLostPets.com the database of preregistered pet photos is manually searched for a match. If a possible match is identified the registered owners are contacted to ensure their pet is not missing.

What The Community Says?

"Maisie was found thanks to the diligence and convenience of winterparklostpets.com I had posted her photos and story on multiple sites and lost pet pages but only through winterparklostpets was I alerted by another user that Maisie had been found in a neighbors garage and was able to keep warm overnight. They included pictures in their text and within the hour she was back home and safe!"

Taylor H WP and Orlando

"We posted our lost dog Lola on winterparklostpets.com and she was found the same day! Judy, Shelley and the team at WPLP were so caring and connected with other organization to find out little Lola. They follwed up several times to ensure she was OK. We are so lucky to have this group in our community as a resource. We are grateful for this amazing, caring and dedicated group of animal advocates!"
