New Tool Helps
Reunite Pets with Owners
The Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), is collaborating with MapMate.com to help return lost pets to their owners faster. PAWS has created an interactive online map that identifies where pets have gone missing and where others were found in the Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap areas.
Because MapMate.com pinpoints the location of the pets disappearance and provides a photo and description of the dog or cat, neighborhoods can now be on the lookout for animals with matching profiles.
In an average month, PAWS receives close to 70 calls for lost and found pets, said Judy Hartstone, PAWS executive director. Unfortunately, many animals do not have a microchip or tags and we cant get them right back to their families, but we are hoping our new MapMate tool will alleviate this problem.
Visit www.pawsbainbridge.org, and click on the Lost and Found section to search the map and help bring loved ones home. If you come across a stray pet, call PAWS at (206) 842-2451 with a description of the animal and location.
