Welcome to Nikhoj.com, the largest and most comprehensive website devoted exclusively to the recovery of pets and personal property. Our sole purpose is to reunite lost and found pets and property to their respective owners using the dynamic communication channels provided by the Internet. What could be more satisfying than returning the family dog or engagement ring to their respective owners?
Nikhoj.com offers visitors a convenient, one-stop source for the exchange of lost and found information including the most comprehensive online database of lost and found pet and property listings, photos, resources, advice, and support tools, on the internet. Nikhoj.com offers this information on a local, national and international basis. It features a variety of categories and services that aim to provide users with the necessary tools (some of which are uniquely suited to the Internet) for the effective communication of lost and found information
Like most online databases, users select to enter data using the report buttons or search for data using the home page search fields. Data retrieved from searches (either lost or found) provides a contact conduit for the user to connect with the counter party. Listings on Nikhoj.com can be accessed one of two ways: either by a main database search through the home page dropdown (I Lost… or I Found…) OR via a venue page search from the home page.
The Venue Page System (VPS) puts your lost and found box online, interactively. It provides the capacity on Nikhoj.com for individual entities at specific locations to create a public, front end page, called the Venue Page, which allows their users to search or report lost or found information; while allowing organizations to manage this information through a back end, called the Venue Admin Page. Venues are accessed through a home page search field, or via direct navigation.
The Venue Page provides the organization a unique URL (www.Nikhoj.com/yourfirmname), a page with their name and address, a map, a search field to search specific listings for that location, and report buttons to submit lost or found reports for that location. Additionally, the venue page provides all of the same premium services as the general database. For more information about the Venue Page, please see www.Nikhoj.com/venuepage
The Venue Admin Page provides the back end of the Venue Page. Its purpose is to service your patrons reporting, listings, and claims information provided on the Venue Page. The Venue Admin page provides organizations a found accounting and inventory management system with a myriad of functionality. Using the Venue Admin Page, organizations can age found inventory until it reaches an expired status (based on local ordinances), donate, discard, or sell expired inventory, alert employees and followers of lost and found reports or inventory, invoice and ship found inventory through a claims management process, or return claimed items in person. For more information about the Venue Admin Page, please see www.Nikhoj.com/venueadminpage

Owners entering a lost listing into the database are provided a myriad of unique, online value added recovery services. These services are designed to enhance their listing on our platform, or distribute their listing onto other platforms for maximum exposure. These services include:
Nikhoj.com believes that providing an incentive by offering a reward for lost pets or property is an important instrument for recovery. Particularly today, when one can measure the value of lost data as greater than the economic value of the device that contains it, a reward can be the paramount motive for recovery. Not to mention the sentimental value of a lost pet! Nikhoj.com provides consumers with the ability to put a reward icon on the results page, and provides the reward amount on the ad details page. The consumer is responsible for the reward.
Nikhoj.com offers a matching service that "matches" the owner's lost database ad with information entered into our found database by other users. Closely relevant results are sent by email to the owner, who can view the found ad to determine its pertinence. Matches are made by venue or by geographic area (great for lost pets).
Nikhoj.com provides owners the ability to send their listing via email to their neighbors as a “Neighborhood Alert”. Particularly applicable to pets, this service is an efficient way to create awareness of your loss quickly.
Nikhoj.com can send its mobile app users a special “Amber Alert”. This Alert can be sent within a radius surrounding the specified area of a loss for a period of up to an hour or longer. Any Nikhoj.com Mobile App users within the radius will receive information about the Owner’s Listing. They can elect to assist or create awareness in the area for the recovery of the lost pet or item.
Nikhoj.com listings can be sent to other social media platforms to heighten awareness. These entries provide a hyperlink to bring any third party platform user back to original listing’s information on Nikhoj.com. Found listings are sent to other platforms for free.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In terms of identifying a pet or piece of property, a photograph provides essential information that words cannot convey. Consumers can upload a photo for use with their ad on the Ad Detail Page, the Ad Results Page, or as a "Featured Ad". (see below)
Consumers can highlight or bold their lost ad on the Results Page to make their ad stand out.
Consumers can have their lost ad placed at the top of the Results Page for all local search queries.
Consumers can have their lost ad rotate on the front page for maximum exposure. When clicked, Featured Homepage Ads will direct the viewer to the lost ad's Detail Page.
Nikhoj.com provides a mobile application for its users on IOS and Android. Our mobile app provides the same functionality and services as the website, plus personal recovery services for the device and other devices as well [see PSP Module].
