CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (AP) – People who lose pets in southeast Missouri have a new resource to help them find their beloved animals _ Facebook.
The Southeast Missourian reports that the Facebook page “SEMO Lost Pet” provides a resource both for those who have lost pets and people who have found animals and are seeking to get them back to their owners.
A picture of the pet is posted. Once found, that information is posted, too, even if the news is not good.
Rochelle Steffen says the idea for the page began when a friend lost his dog and reached out to his own Facebook friends for help.
Steffen started SEMO Lost Pet as a way to alert a larger number of people. More than 10,000 people now follow the page.
