How often have you seen a social media post reporting a lost or stolen animal and wondered what you can do to help?
Hundreds of pets are reported missing in South Africa everyday, but it's mostly social media that helps reunite them with their owners.
Well, now there's an even better way to keep track of your pets. It's an app called Oh Whizkers.
Developer Logan Hing told CapeTalk's Sara-Jayne King how it works.
The app makes use of your phone's camera. If you see a lost animal roaming the streets, you can open the app, take a picture of the animal and then an instant alert is sent throughout the community within a 20km radius.— Logan Hing, Oh Whizkers app developer
Oh Whizkers is available to download on the App Store and Google Play.
