Title: Geographically sensitive automated notice system

Abstract: The present invention is a system that utilizes the global computer network ("Internet") to provide an intelligent and powerful pet notification system for canvassing specific geographical areas in a matter of seconds to aid in the location of a lost pet. Utilizing an on-line pet interview and active web site engine, a photo e-mail of the lost pet can be distributed instantaneously to reach a large segment of the community. The notification system retains information about pets and their owners, including photographs. Upon notification of the loss of a pet, the system will initiation calculations, based upon the last known location, particular size and breed of the pet and an estimate of how long it has been missing, to determine the most appropriate target area for the search.
