PRLog - Mar. 11, 2014 - SEATTLE -- PetHub.com, the world's fastest way to get lost pets home, announced today its acquisition of Atlanta-based GetPetsHome.com and PetHub's offer of free digital pet ID tags to GetPetsHome.com users and their pets.

"GetPetsHome and PetHub share a common vision: to get animals back to their families, quickly," said Dr. Will Draper, founder of GetPetsHome.com.  "PetHub has built an incredible solution and I'm excited our users will be introduced to PetHub's ever-growing list of products and services focused on keeping animals safe."

PetHub will be sending out emails with electronic voucher codes to the users of GetPetsHome.com, redeemable for free digital ID tags from PetHub.com. Users will have until March 31st to redeem their voucher for the free tag. PetHub will also pay shipping to any address within the 50 United States.

The Facts

One in three animals will go missing in its lifetime, according to American Humane Association. If an animal reaches a shelter, 25% will be returned to their original families, 25% will be "re-homed" to new families, and 50% will sadly never exit the shelter alive.

"PetHub gets pets home before they reach a shelter," said Tom Arnold, Founder of PetHub.com. "I am a big supporter of microchips, and all of my four-legged kiddos are 'chipped,' but I'm frustrated when people celebrate the return of an animal after it was missing for 5-years when he or she could have been home again in under a day if they'd had a PetHub ID tag."

In over a year, of pets returned through PetHub's call center, 96% were home in less than 24 hours, and 35% in less than 4-hours. "Considering that the ASPCA and the NCPPSP show that less than 2% of cats and less than 15-20% of dogs ever make it home again at all after going missing, this is an incredible accomplishment," said Lorien Clemens, Director of Marketing at PetHub, Inc.

PetHub's use of wireless technology, GPS, a database of shelters, free accounts, a 24-hour call center, and utilizing the fact that all of us have cell phones, is what has led to PetHub's astounding recovery record and exponential growth.
