I need to make an app which sends an message to the nearest pet shelter for help once it gets the command from the arduino

I want to learn how i can do that so i can save animals , which would benefit them as so many dogs and cats are dying because of accidents with automobiles and there is no one to help them . So i want to work on it and pls tell me how can i make it as i am not that good in programming. I it would be great help if someone tells me how can i do that.

Your dog has a cell phone?

Welcome Avyan.

What an interesting idea. :wink:

You can use a WebViewer and type into the url block

nearest pet shelter near me.

This aia example works on an Android device. It might work on some emulators. A button finds all nearby pet shelters;;;

FindPetShelters.aia (3.3 KB)

This example will locate the nearest shelter provided you enable the device's gps. From the resulting map you probably can get a phone number for the shelter.

Once you have a number someone can call it on behalf of the pet.

thanks steve but i have to get the number automatically and send the message

no that is just for an app . their will be an collar in which their will be sensors and arduino present

So your plan is, to rescue only those dogs and cats who have an accident, who have a collar like that?

Start simple and use the example from @SteveJG as a start and as your knowledge of programming increases with the time, add more features
