Save-my-pet.ch / sticker that can save your pet


My first post in the pet corner



Fire brigades have created a sticker that you should stick to your apartment door if you have pets so that they know they should keep looking for them in an emergency (i.e. cat went into hiding).



They can be ordered from https://www.save-my-pet.ch/



I think this is a great idea and recommend it to anyone with at least one pet.

Re: Save-my-pet.ch / sticker that can safe your pet

That's lovely!

Also, put a notice in your wallet mentioning you have a pet at home - if you suffer an accident, or end unconscious in the hospital, people going through the wallet looking for information will notice there is an animal in need.

Some samples here, but you can do it in your home with the help of a computer and printer, or rad old-style, with a pen and paper

Every pet owner should get one

The RSPCA run a scheme in the UK for when pet owners die, but not sure if it also covers accidents as well.

Great that this Swiss one also extends to Germany and Austria.

"Pet owners in Switzerland can now rest assured their beloved dog or cat will be looked after should something happen to them, thanks to a new emergency kit.

The set, containing a sticker for the house door and a card to be carried on the person, alerts the emergency services to the presence of a pet.

The kit was launched this week by the Swiss branch of the animal protection organization Four Paws and the Swiss firefighters association Swissfire.

It is the first time a national approach has been taken to protecting house pets and is part of an international approach.

The campaign extends to neighbouring Germany and Austria.

There are an estimated 7.5 million pets in Switzerland, according to the news release.

Emergency services are regularly called on to save not just people but also pets – whether in the event of a fire or following road accidents.

The information on the card and sticker alerts rescuers to the fact that an animal is in the property or that someone involved in an accident has a pet at home.

The save-my-pet sets are available to order for 8.50 francs from Four Paws and Swissfire."

Re: Every pet owner should get one

The sticker on the housedoor will tell everybody I have a pet ...... and I live alone

The card in the wallet and the basic idea is good.

While I love my Qashqai I don't consider it my pet. It can't sit on my lap for cuddles for one thing. Though I guess you could say I sit in its lap.

Why would it signify that you live alone? Couples/families have pets and they could all be involved in an accident and not be able to take care of their pet.

This is great info - thanks! I have been carrying a worn-out hand-written post-it to this effect in my bag, wallet and phone case lol
Just to be sure, as there are several items on this page - It is the "Notfallausweis" right?
