(WAFB) - National Pet Day is Tuesday, April 11 – a day when pet parents give a little extra love to their furry friends.
To celebrate pets and offer a way to ensure they are always kept safe, Nextdoor, the social network that connects neighbors in more than 130,000 U.S. neighborhoods, is launching the Nextdoor Pet Directory.
Available nationwide on April 11, the Nextdoor Pet Directory allows users to add pet photos and identifying details to a neighborhood directory, building a comprehensive hub for the community to get to know fellow pet owners and, in times of need, a valuable resource for reuniting lost pets with their families.
Nextdoor reports that, on average, lost pets are recovered within a two-mile radius of their home, meaning neighbors can often be extremely vital in helping return a missing pet. Hundreds of thousands of neighbors use Nextdoor every day to reunite lost pets with their owners. The Pet Directory will help them do that faster and easier.
