Can’t find Buster? The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wants to help.

The ASPCA recently launched an app designed to help frantic owners find their lost pets. Developed by animal care experts, the app gives owners a personalized missing pet recovery kit, including a lost-pet action checklist. It lets owners launch their search online and offline, helping them make digital fliers for social media and design posters to hang in their neighborhood. The free app is available for iPhone and Android.
