The service allows you to exchange information about lost or found animals.
A year ago, the mos.ru portal appeared the first city centralized service for finding missing animals… During this time, Muscovites have posted about 1400 ads in it. 168 cats and dogs were returned to their owners or added to a new family.
The service is an online bulletin board where Muscovites can exchange information about lost or found animals. It allows you to search for pets in the database of published messages, view contacts for communication with their authors and create new announcements.
“The online service on mos.ru can become an effective assistant in the search for a lost pet. It can be used not only by animal owners, but also by caring Muscovites who want to help in their search. For example, if there is an animal on the street that looks like a pet, you can take a photo of it and upload a photo with a description of the pet to the service. To view ads, you do not need to register on the portal. You will need an account to publish a message or view the contacts of the authors of the ads, ”the press service said.
Now the service has 82 active announcements: 37 – about a find, 45 – about missing pets. They indicate the special signs of animals, the date and time when it was lost, the place where the pet was lost or found, is described under what circumstances it disappeared. For example, cats often escape through an open window or carrier when going to the veterinary clinic or when moving. Dogs are most often lost while walking. Explosions of firecrackers and fireworks, a large number of people, loud music can also scare the four-legged, so during the holidays you should be especially vigilant.
Most often, Muscovites reported lost Maine Coons, Scottish Folds, Sphynxes, Bengal, Siberian and other cat breeds. Among the missing dogs are Beagles, Corgis, Jack Russell Terriers, Shiba Inu, Pomeranians, Labradors, Siberian Huskies and Chihuahua Hua. It was possible to return home 88 cats and 80 dogs.
“The specialists of the state veterinary service moderate the advertisements around the clock. Applications should not contain obscene language, information that does not correspond to the topic of the service, and photos that focus on specific people, contain personal data or are not directly related to the found or lost pet. Announcements with the listed violations are removed, “the press service added.
