Pet Hub QR Code Pet Id Tags Added to Nominee Gift Bags for 2011 MTV Movie Awards
Pet Hub’s smartphone-scannable dog & cat ID tags provided to 75 nominated celebrities for MTV’s June 5, 2011 film awards.
“We’re very excited to share our leading-edge pet ID tags with anyone and everyone. The ability to protect pets while still preserving one’s privacy certainly resonates with celebrities,”
The tags will be made available to the top nominees on Friday, June 3rd, in advance of the ceremony that airs on Sunday, June 5th. Five styles of the tags and gift certificates were included and playfully followed themes of some of the nominated films. The overall message is that PetHub.com helps to keep your pet safe by making it fast and easy to get them home again.

PetHub helps pet owners store and manage their pets’ information in a private place, share that information with important people in its life, and help lost animals get home quickly and safely. The PetHub Link ID tags have both a human-readable web address as well as a 2-dimensional bar code, or “QR code,” that, when scanned by an Apple iPhone™, Android, Microsoft™ Windows Mobile device, Blackberry™, or other camera-equipped, browser-enabled cellular phone, navigates to an animal’s online profile. This profile dynamically displays any information the owner has chosen to share and can be updated at any time without requiring modifications to the physical tag. The basic service that includes storage of the animal’s data is free and does not require any kind of sign-up fee. Premium features, including pet insurance, will be made optionally available in future updates to the website.
