Another Happy Reuniting
Another happy reuniting … this time via Doggone’s free text service!
It’s uncharacteristic for Charlie to just take off, but he did last Friday night when down at the river with owner, Danny. The relaxed, together-time, turned sour when Charlie ‘legged it’ and was nowhere to be seen. As luck would have it, a good samaritan came across Charlie wandering, looked at his Doggone registration tag, saw the ‘If I look lost’ plea on the tag and texted Charlie’s official registration number to the Doggone 4133 free text service. Danny instantly received a notification on his phone that Charlie had been safely found – and the rest is history, as they say!
“That panic feeling just took over when Charlie took off and I lost sight of him but within 5 minutes I could breathe again, knowing he was safe and sound,” says Danny.
Doggone is currently being offered as part of the Hutt City Council annual dog registration. It is available to all dog owners registered with the Council for the 2019/2020 year. Owners can trade their standard dog registration tag or strip for a Doggone Bluetooth registration tag at any time up to 30 June 2020. Simply drop your existing tag into customer services at the Hutt City Council offices in Laings Road, Lower Hutt and they’ll exchange it for you. The cost of Doggone is $28 (inclusive of GST) which includes the Doggone Bluetooth registration tag and code to create a profile for your dog in the App, as well as access to the Doggone text service. The Doggone App is free for anyone to download.
