MICHIGAN HUMANE SOCIETY COMMENTS ON NEW NATIONAL LOST PET HOTLINE

 MICHIGAN HUMANE SOCIETY COMMENTS ON NEW NATIONAL LOST PET HOTLINE
 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Michigan Humane Society said it is excited about the new national lost/found pet hotline service developed by the American Humane Association and Sprint. The new system will be available beginning midnight tonight.
 "The lost pet hotline is the first of its kind and should be used as an adjunct to other proven methods of finding lost pets," stated Gary Tiscornia, executive director of the Michigan Humane Society.
 By using an 800/900 telephone number system, lost pets can be reported by the individual finding the animal and cross-matched with the report filed by the pet owner. The system will be operated 24 hours a day.
 The person finding a lost pet should call the hotline at 800-755-8111. There is no charge to report finding a lost animal. The pet owner reporting a lost pet should call 900-535-1515. There is a charge of $1.95 per minute for an average four-minute call for pet owners using the 900 number service.
 "Pet owners need to take responsibility for their pets by keeping them on a leash or indoors and always collared with identification tags," stated Tiscornia. "This service does not replace traditional methods of locating a lost pet. If a pet is lost, the owner should continue to place classified advertisements and visit their local Michigan Humane Society shelters and animal control facilities."
 The Michigan Humane Society of a non-profit organization serving animals since 1877, with three full-service shelters and charitable animal hospitals in the metropolitan Detroit area.
