Indy Lost Pet Alert is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that utilizes social media to reunite lost and found pets with their families while advocating animal welfare in the community. 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.  It is a free of charge service.

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.  ILPA has changed the way people look for their pets in Indianapolis and surrounding areas. It has been featured on Good Morning America and multiple local news programs. Today, ILPA is supported by the President, Michelle Vickrey along with a staff of volunteers. Currently, ILPA is a 100% volunteer ran organization and donations keep us alive.

ILPA now has more than 60,000 Facebook Followers and 2,700 Twitter Followers.  More than 25,000 pets have been reunited with their families since 2012.

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