PSA for pets from Daddy!

Kitties!
 It's The Daddy, with a GREAT announcement concerning lost pets.

I was working last Saturday morning when the phone rang--I answered and got a computer generated message--and I almost hung up, thinking it was a telemarketer. But just as I was about to press END...I heard "PET AMBER ALERT...PET AMBER ALERT!"  So I listened and found out a Border Collie Woofie named BRINKS was lost in our neighborhood!
(To our foreign readers, an "Amber Alert" is a PSA that goes out for missing children.)

The message was detailed and informative, told me ALL about BRINKS, and a number to call if he was found/seen.  I wrote the number down and called to find out more about BRINKS, like what part of our neighborhood was he last seen?  And guess what?  When I called I got BRINKS’ dad on the phone, and BRINKS was already home!  Somebody else had seen BRINKS after getting the same phone call and got him to come to them.

Apparently, PETAMBERALERT.COM is AWESOME.  It's available in the US and Canada.   BRINKS’ dad found the site, signed up, and it automatically faxed and emailed ALL the surrounding VETS and SHELTERS.

Then, if that wasn’t good enough--it calls EVERYBODY [like me] within a THREE MILE radius, BRINKS lived two miles away from us!
(BRINKS didn’t even live in our 'hood, thank Cod...we don’t need any woofies here, and you know what happens to strays that show up at our door.)
   
Check it out: PETAMBERALERT.COM

It does cost money to use--but they're worth it, right?
Pets are priceless!

Happy Monday!

pee ess:  In case you're wondering, yes, Daddy talks in caps, too!  He's crazypants!

  5. This is definitely a great initiative. We're so happy for a happy ending for Brinks and his family. We wish there was a similar service here. We know too many pets who have either wandered off, gotten lost or stolen that may have been found with this Pet Amber Alert.

  9. That is a fantastic idea. So what if it costs money - responsible pet owners should have money for our food and care (and treats).
    We are glad Brinks found his home and went nowhere near you guys.

  13. Outstanding. A great, truly heartwarming story for the season. Thank you for letting us know. We never heard of AmberAlert, and we live in the USA. And -- never mind about the CAPS and the shirt -- does anybody see the eyes, and the hat? Or is it just me. Not only receiving Mars in my fillings. Now I'm seeing things too? Say it ain't so.

  14. We have been getting those phone calls for a couple of years, but the mom is so brain dead she didn't know the name of the service. Thanks for telling us. We think its a wonderful idea!
    (Pee S. We always suspected the dad was a little crazy pants. We remember all the fun he had with the fake arm.)

  25. Oh yes, we had an amber alert call for a dumbhead woofie who had decided to go sight-seeing couple of months ago. It's a very nice service.

  26. We didn't know about this but it's a great idea! We see missing pets signs when we go walking and Mommy always tries to find them but if we got a call sooner it'd certainly help a lot more. Thanks for telling us!

  40. Nice work, Daddy!

    But, uh, I think the cats need to stop insulting Mommy's fashion sense so often and, uh, maybe mention yours once in a while! ;)
