After a long battle to try and turn things around, we’re afraid to say that we’ve had to shut down the Pod Trackers business. This is obviously a big disappointment for everyone – we really tried to make the business succeed, but it just wasn’t enough in the end. We faced a number of challenges as a startup trying to build a global company and after a few unfortunate set-backs, we just weren’t able to recover.
We feel we built a good product and achieved some real traction with customers all over the world including a few big retail partners, but at the end of the day there were too many bumps in the road, the demand wasn’t as strong as we’d hoped and we didn’t execute well enough to overcome it all. There are certainly a number of things we could have done better and we learnt some hard lessons along the way. One of the good things to come out of it was the positive feedback we received from many of our customers who had a good experience. Due to some major technical issues and financial pressure, unfortunately we also let a lot of people down and we deservingly had our fair share of unhappy customers when things didn’t work out.
All services have been shut down and any subscription fees that were charged after the end of November 2019 had previously been refunded. As we have ceased operating, we sincerely apologise that there’s nothing more we can do for you from here.
All we can say is that from the bottom of our hearts, we’re truly sorry for letting you down. You put your faith in us and we’ve failed you.
We know this is not the news you were hoping for, but thank you for joining us on the Pod journey. It’s a shame it had to end too soon.

So sad to hear this news. I always had fantastic service from you and probably wouldn’t have my beautiful cat if it wasn’t for your tracker as we lost her once but found her using the pod.
I hope whatever you do in the future is a success, I’m sure it will be.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful product.
I just wanted to say I was very sorry to hear this – it was a great concept and well designed product. We did have a few technical issues (probably mostly of our own making!) but even then, the customer support we received was second to none: your employees clearly believed in the product which is a testament to the company and management.
All the best for the future.
This is very sad news. I’ve been a happy client since the initial Indiegogo campaign back in 2014 and have found all my pods so useful in keeping my dog safe and well. There have been a few wobbles but overall I’m happy that I signed up and it’s a shame that it is ending. Just thought I’d drop you a line to send my thanks for the last 6 years and to wish everyone at Pod Trackers all the best for the future.
Good luck guys thanks got your support over the time.
Wally (my cat) thanks you also. He is still safe and sound.

Very very sad to hear this. We thought you had a great product.
We wish you and all your colleagues the ver best wishes for the future.
Great effort – was awesome well it lasted!
Dear Pod Trackers,
Thanks for you open and honest email. It sounds like you gave the business your all and at the end of the day, that’s really all you can do.
Don’t be too hard on yourselves – you had a great product that served many people very well when they needed it.
Best of luck for whatever you do next.
I’m so sorry you had to shut down. I loved your product!! I found my stubborn cats more times than I can count. My neighbors who love my cats would follow them on the app. It was quite entertaining for them. Yes sometimes the app would say the kitties were overseas but when it really mattered I could find them.
Dear Pod Tracker Team
Thank you for the email. I am very sorry to hear you have ceased trading. You always gave me good service and advice when I had issues. Your product was and is still a very good product. Wishing you all success in the future understood whatever you do.
Y’all were great. I hate this happened to you. I hate it for me! Things happen sometimes that are out of our control. Thank you for the times this worked so well and gave peace of mind that I could find my wandering dog.
Thank you. When it was working it was a really good tracker….so sorry it has closed down
I’m sorry this happened. Thanks for working hard to produce a great product.
All the best in any future endeavors.
