Buddy Rescue utilizes technology & community to rescue pets from fires

Hundreds of thousands of pets perish in the more than one million fires that occur every year in the United States. 

Birmingham-based VineLight, LLC has created Buddy Rescue, the first App and Smart Technology Platform completely focused on saving pets from fires. 

The patented, new App and Smart Technology Platform will help rescue pets from fires in all building types, including homes, multi-family units, high-rise structures, pet shelters, humane societies, and more.

The Buddy Rescue App uses the proximity awareness of smart devices to alert people in the immediate vicinity of a pet in danger. Thus, anyone – including neighbors, friends, and concerned citizens – who are located close to the emergency will be notified with the address and the specific details about the pets who need their help. These registered, Buddy Rescue participants can then open a door or break a window to save the animals inside… long before the fire department even arrives.

VineLight is leveraging its existing networks and technologies in Fire Departments and 911 centers to help make Buddy Rescue possible. 

The Buddy Rescue Platform will also be able to integrate with a host of different smart technologies to access, monitor, and interact with products that can automatically save pets in an emergency, with no human intervention involved.
