    Does anyone use GPS tracking collars for their shelter and/or foster dogs?  We have 3 trackers from Tractive  and they're great!  They do have a shelter discount program.  We were able to track a lost dog and immediately find it (catching it took a bit longer).  Our issue is that there is no way to call and talk to a human.  The communication is all through email and it often takes a long time.  We're investigating if there are other companies that have better customer service and we'll potentially switch but we plan on always having GPS trackers because it's such a huge anxiety reliever!

    I don't remember the company name but one day I got a big box with offer for adopters of free GPS and all you had to do is regiter and pay $8 a month.

    We gave all the boxes (about 30 or so) to adopters and I asked for more, but the promotion ended.

    I am sorry the rescue didn't save few for the fosters. Big mistake.

    If you'll find a good company with reasonable price please share here. Thank you .
