Initiative's drivers

Across the US several dog parents have reported in the last weeks that their pets became fatally ill after swimming in lakes and ponds, apparently after ingesting water with toxic algae.

Sadly we say goodbye to Abby, Arya, Clue, Fina, Harper, Harpo, e Izzy, whom together their parents were enjoying outdoor activities. They existence ended by the toxic blue-green algae.

In lakes and ponds, the cyanobacteria or green-blue algae blooms by heat. Its toxicity is dangerous to the life of pets, even for us. Dogs are the most exposed, because they play on the shore where the blooming of these toxic algae is most concentrated, and ingest them when they drink water there, swimming, or licking themselves.

We take this opportunity to include in this initiative the sighting of wild animals as Coyotes, pumas, bears, or snakes. They are closer and closer toward our homes and are risky for our pets, and us too.

What can we do about this?

If you know a place that could mean a threat for our pets, please report it ASAP to our Pet-Friend community by means of this WebApp.
