Social media hub to reunite lost pet with owners faster

A NEW social media group is helping to reunite lost pets with their loved ones faster.

The Parra Pets Matta Facebook group will act as a central hub for lost and found pets, allowing pet owners to post details about their missing pets, such as photos and descriptions, enabling a larger group of residents to assist in finding them.
Parramatta Mayor Pierre Esber said the new initiative would improve the council’s ability to return lost pets to their home.
“We understand the emotional distress and turmoil that comes with losing a beloved companion,” he said.
“Last year alone, the council returned 78 dogs directly home via our temporary animal holding facility.
“I encourage all residents to join the Parra Pets Matta Facebook group and actively participate in this community-driven effort.”
