New program provides QR code pet ID tags to animal rescues and shelters’s smartphone-scannable dog & cat ID tags provided to rescues and shelters throughout the U.S. as part of a new program to help animals start their new lives, with their new families, already protected to help get them home again fast.
July 14, 2011 - PRLog -- SEATTLE, Wash. – July 14, 2011: Pet Hub, Inc., today announced  the official  launch of the PetHub Rescue Program (PRP) to help address the problem of 6-8 million animals entering animal shelters each year (with the result of 50% of those animals being euthanized). By providing a PetHub QR code ID tag and free web account to new adoptive pet owners, PetHub’s goal is to help wayward animals wearing its tags to get home faster than ever before.

“Because over 40% of us have phones that have Internet access, someone finding a pet can either scan the bar code or type in the web address on the PetHub ID tag,” said Lorien Clemens, Manager of the new program. “Scanning the code with your phone not only shows a wealth of information, such as medications, vaccinations, emergency contacts, dietary restrictions, and alternate contacts. It can also alert the pet owner through a text message or email that the tag was scanned.”

Because smartphones – Apple iPhone, Google Android, Microsoft Windows Mobile devices, Blackberries, and other such devices – allow a community to help get a wayward pet home quickly, the program provides tags to qualified shelters and rescues, and even gives such organizations an opportunity to raise money for their organization through private branded  tags.
