Saber Alert updated 2/23/12                                         

Safe Animal Boadcast Emergency Response or Saber Alerts are sent out to all animal control officers that are members of ACOAM.

The SABER ALERT is sent out as soon as we have reports of a missing or found dog. We have been able to return many dogs to their owners quickly and safely thanks to this great program.

If you are an ACO and not a member of ACOAM, please contact us, we'd be happy to put you on the list. After all, our goal is to reunite dogs with their owners.
