DENVER — Tuesday is National Pet Day and one social networking site is working to make sure lost pets can be found quickly.

Nextdoor is a network for neighborhoods and on Tuesday, it will be adding a special pet directory to the site.

Currently, there is a lost and found section where users are able to post information about a lost pet, but the new directory will allow neighbors to know whose pet is whose before they are lost and hopefully help any lost animals get back home quickly.

Participants can sign up on the website or download the mobile app on smartphones.
