Amber Alerts for Pets

Pet owners desperate to find their missing pets don't have to rely on putting signs up in their neighborhoods.  Now, their search can broadcast to neighbors over the phone and even go global.

"This is a Pet Amber Alert. There is a missing pet in your area." That's how the broadcast starts.  Monday night, the call urged Broken Arrow residents and animal agencies to find  Pebbles, a Yorkie that hasn't been seen since June 19th. 
"It's been very very bad, very emotional, been pretty much a mess the last two weeks, said Pebble's owner, Ammy Raber.  She says Pebbles is more than a pet. She's family.  "She's been are baby, so when she went missing, it was like a child being gone.  My heart's just broken," she told News Channel 8.

If Lulu Bell or Gismo went missing, Shirley Nelson says she'd feel the same way.  She's one of hundreds of BA residents who got the call, but when she heard  Amber Alert the last thing she thought of was a pooch.  "Because we're used to the Amber Alert when the children are missing, and I thought oh my gosh, not around here; and then we listened again, and it said pet alert."  Still the grandmother supports the website and those who choose to use it.
But at least one other woman was offended.  She sent Ammy a message of her own.  "You know you could leave signs on the road like everybody else damn it.  Not to be calling people's homes to let them know your dog's missing. People can read you know," said the anonymous caller.  Ammy says she's tried the signs and flyers and neither worked, nor did trips to vets and animal shelters.  " I understand that they're not the same thing as human beings and that human being lives are more valuable, but they are our companions. They are our friends, and they mean a lot to us." isn't free. Packages range from $87 to nearly $500.  Ammy says she spent $200 for her messages.  For more information look at the link provided with this story.

Ammy also encourages other pet owners to get micro chips implanted in their animals to make it easier for to find them, and to always keep a close eye on them to avoid what she's going through.
