This is the Facebook Notifications section
The National Dog Directory has developed a nation wide network of Facebook groups to help you find your dog no matter where you lost your dog. You can have your dog's information added to up to four groups including the state where you lost your dog as well as the county, city and even specific neighborhoods. The state and county groups are required groups to have your dog information added. Not all dogs are lost in a city or neighborhood. This is why these two groups are optional.
If you do not find the neighborhood, you can request a new neighborhood be added. It takes up to 24 hours to have a neighborhood added so go ahead and leave this field blank if you don't find a neighborhood you need. When you receive notice of approval for your neighborhood you can simply add it at that time.
Select the groups you desire to have your dog listed in and click "NEXT"
Click on the button, "Save My dog's Information"
Now, here is what happens.
An email is sent to dog owners in your zip code and the surrounding zip codes where you lost your dog.
A post is made on the Facebook group page for the state where you lost your dog.
A post is made on the Facebook group page for the county where you lost your dog.
A post is made on the Facebook group page for the city where you lost your dog.
And finally, a post is made on the Facebook group page for the neighborhood where you lost your dog.
Text messages are sent to people who have indicated their desire to receive them in the area where you lost your dog.
I am sure you can see, changing the status on your dog is easy to do.
