Formerly titled NetPosse Identification Program (NIP), the NetPosse ID Registry is a service provided by Stolen Horse International, Inc./NetPosse.com, the first and only nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection of all equines, providing the owners with a detailed history and ID protection. If you have your horse in our NetPosse ID registry, then Stolen Horse International can ensure our NetPosse Alerts much faster, and, you do not pay for the report when we do.

All equine ID NetPosse ID gives your missing, lost, and stolen equine a chance to be found. It gives owners peace of mind that they have offered protection to help their horse come home.

Some reports are available for pets and equipment as well. 

What do I get with the basic report?

We are so happy that we are able to provide a service that no one else in the world provides via a nonprofit organization or even a social media platform. The very basic report has many advantages. When you finish your report the following services are available, just to name a few:

  • a webpage that is indexed in Google and other search engines
  • pictures on your webpage
  • description of your incident
  • a flyer made by our website
  • a listing that can be updated by you at any time just by logging into your account and your report
  • NetPosse Alerts on our social media platforms
  • NetPosse Alerts to our mailing list
  • contacts made by our reports team to specific people, groups, and organizations on your behalf
  • a link to share your webpage and information to your emails, social media platforms, and more
  • the comment section at the bottom of your report listing webpage so you can update tips, progress, etc., to your own report easily
  • limited consultation with experts in this field
  • volunteers and supporters that share out NetPosse Alerts
  • more NetPosse Alerts sent out upon request
  • other articles on www.netposse.com linked to your report when necessary
  • and a listing on our website for as long as your horse is missing as long as our program exist

We cannot guarantee that we will find your horse. No one can do that. However, we can guarantee that we are giving you a platform that has brought home many horses because of the report listing's existence on our website.

Other options are available when you file your report. There is a small fee to file a report if your horse is not already listed in our NetPosse ID registry.

All of the listing fees go back to the victim's service program (which supports your listing), to help with the high costs of the database website. None of this money is paid in salaries but we do have costs involved in the website. All of our staff are volunteers and always have been.
