A Minneapolis pet license is your pet’s free ride home

Making sure lost pets find their way home is the focus of a new City of Minneapolis public service announcement. 

Beginning Aug. 1, Comcast cable subscribers in Minneapolis will see a new public service announcement that shows how a pet license reunited a lost dog with its owner. In the video, a Minneapolis dog owner shares how “Scoop” ran out of his yard when a gate was accidently left open.

Comcast is donating the airtime to broadcast the public service announcement that is also posted on the City of Minneapolis YouTube channel.
