At Pawnec, we're dedicated to creating a safer world for our beloved pets. Our AMBER Alert and Community Watch Program is at the heart of this mission, designed to bring our community together in times of need. This article will guide you through how the program works and how you can be an integral part of this life-saving initiative.
What is the AMBER Alert for Pets?
Inspired by the AMBER Alert system for missing children, our Animal Missing Broadcast Emergency Response (AMBER) Alert for pets is a proactive measure to help find and safely return missing pets to their families. When a pet is reported missing within the Pawnec smart ID app, an alert is sent out to all Pawnec users in the vicinity of the pet's last known location.
How It Works:
- Report Missing: If your pet goes missing, you can report it directly through the Pawnec smart ID app.
- Broadcast Alert: Upon reporting, an SMS alert is sent to Pawnec users within a specific geographic radius, including a link to the public tracking page of your missing pet in Pawnec's Missing Pet Bulletin.
- Community Support: Fellow Pawnec users and the public can report sightings through the public tracking page, providing real-time updates and streamlining community efforts to locate your pet.
