MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Many pet owners consider their furry friends a part of the family, and now, a new online system can help owners reunite with their companions if they ever go missing.

The Minneapolis Animal Care and Control now has a page on its website with a list of lost pets complete with a photo, name, gender, breed and date he or she arrived at the shelter.

Recently, the system helped a Minnesota woman Renae Elert reunite with her lost pup Tucker on Aug. 14.

"In a time of great stress with Tucker going missing, it was a great relief to see his picture online and know for sure that he was safe. If it were just a written description, it would not have helped me because the description did not exactly match his breed mix and I would have not known for certain he was OK until I came into check. The online photo made the process a lot faster and I really appreciate the ease in finding our lost dog," Elert said.

LICENSE YOUR PET

Minneapolis requires dogs, cats, ferrets and rabbits to be licensed. If your licensed pet is found in Minneapolis, it gets a free ride home instead of the animal shelter and can receive treatment if needed as medical history is readily available.
