Capital Humane Society introduces lost and found pet map

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Capital Humane Society recently introduced a new way for people to find lost pets.

An employee at the shelter created a map and coded it to show where in Lincoln pets have been lost or found.

The pins on the map include information on the pets.

Even though the map has been up only 10 days, the humane society is already seeing success, Executive Director Matt Madcharo said.

“You know, we have had a good response to it,” he said. “So far people like it and see the value of it. And, you know, I believe we’ve had at least one person who said they found their pet through there so far,” he said.

Madcharo said he saw something similar in Texas a couple years ago.

To submit a lost or found report, go to the Capital Humane Society website and click on Lost and Found Pets.

Madcharo said the Humane Society has seen an influx of lost, stray and unwanted dogs.

While he hopes the map will help people be reunited with pets, he also wants the dogs there to be adopted.

That’s why the shelter is offering a promotion from Tuesday to Sunday at the Pieloch Pet Adoption Center near 70th Street and Highway 2.

The adoption cost for dogs 5 months and older will be cut by 50% (license and rabies deposits still apply).
