Animal Help Now consists of a website (ahnow.org), an iPhone app (AnimalHelpNow!) and an in-development Droid app. Animal Help Now serves the public and helps animals by leveraging digital technologies to immediately connect people involved with animal emergencies with the most appropriate time- and location-specific resources and services.
The list of available helpers includes Veterinarians (Including Mobile Veterinarians, and Veterinarians Who Treat Wildlife), Wildlife Rehabilitators, Animal Control Agencies, Animal Advocates, Animal Shelters, Cruelty Investigators, Crime Stoppers, Wildlife Agencies, and State Patrols,
The service works 24 hours a day, throughout Colorado and 50 miles into bordering states.
Animal Help Now is designed to help when a person encounters situations such as: a lost cat, a found dog, a found injured dog, a found untransportable injured act, a dog fallen through ice, transportable injured bird, transportable orphaned wildlife, untransportable injured deer, injured hawk in back yard, goose with arrow through leg, cows in the road, person abusing or negelecting an animal and animal left in hot car.
Animal Help Now attempts to help even when help is not available by providing additional information on what a person can do in certain circumstances (this feature is in development) and by providing access to an animal advocacy organization (in Colorado: Animal Action Network).
Animal Help Now is designed to work in emergencies. It's fast, easy and specific.
Also, Animal Help Now has feedback functionality, so we encourage our users to provide us with constructive feedback.
