OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The nonprofit raised $10,000 in under a week to purchase a thermal imaging drone that will help locate lost animals more efficiently. The drone can withstand certain weather and has zoom capabilities.

  • Last week 3 News Now spoke to Lost Pets of Omaha Area who had an interest in investing in a thermal imaging drone, the only problem, it would be costly and they weren't sure if it was the right way to spend donations.
  • After our story aired, the organization received a lot of encouragement, prompting them to start a fundraiser.
  • The new drone has been purchased. The nonprofit looks forward to expanding their services.
