"This year's event is especially exciting for me," said Tom Arnold, founder of PetHub.com. "Our digital ID tags with GPS notification capabilities are the official tags awarded to and worn by this year's nominees and, of course, by the winner."
Thousands of pets are lost each year and PetHub uses Internet and mobile technologies to help bring them home faster and more safely than ever before. The company's unique, digital, pet ID tags enable those who find a lost pet to instantly connect with the owner, and, by scanning the tag's customized QR code, send an instant message containing the geo-location of the pet. In this way, PetHub is uniquely applying crowd-sourcing activity to pet safety.
"We are thrilled to work with PetHub to keep many more of America's beloved companion animals safe and healthy," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane Association.
