Dec. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Seattle, WashingtonPetHub, Inc., a software company focused on creating comprehensive pet safety solutions, announced new options today for pet identification that links to its online service: pet ID tags manufactured by Dog Tag Art. "We're working to keep up with demand for our tags and eager to provide even more options at the same time," said Tom Arnold, Founder of PetHub and former Microsoft employee who left the software giant to launch in March 2011. "Two of our partners -- and -- are working with us to provide additional options for tags that link to our services," he added.

The newest options that now support the QR code are provided by Dog Tag Art and available through the PetHub website: "Geek Dog", "I'm a High-Tech Pup!", and a "Scan me" tag featuring PetHub's dog and cat cartoon mascots. "We're excited to share our rugged yet fun tags with PetHub's users," said Jack Carrier, Director of "The size, colorfulness, and quality of our tags has made us a leader in the pet tag industry.  With PetHub's innovative QR recovery system and our tags, we'll be able to protect more pets in a fun way.  ID tags don't have to be boring!" has also rolled out new collar options that include reflective, easy-release, and soft-grip collars, all of which can be found both at and on the website.

All of these options are pointing to's services and help pet owners in three distinct ways: 1) enables pet owners / guardians to send "Amber Alert"-like notifications to nearby shelters if a pet goes missing (using their pet's existing profile), 2) receive notifications when their pet's tag is scanned, and, 3) provide a starting location for finding their wayward pet by including a GPS map showing where the animal was when scanned.

"The GPS feature is exciting because of the fact that 50% of us walk around with GPS-enabled smartphones in our pockets. Recognizing this, we decided to make it easier than ever before to get people moving quickly to get a pet home faster and safely by: 1) providing critical data to the rescuer, such as medications, dietary needs, and multiple emergency phone numbers, and, 2) notifying the pet owner that their pet was found and where to find them. This is done simply by scanning the tag with a cell phone's camera or typing in the tag's web address," noted Arnold.  An option included with the tags and collars is having the pet's name and owner's phone number etched onto the tag. The pet's Internet profile pointed to by the tag can be modified free of charge without requiring any changes to the physical tag.

"We're remaining very selective when it comes to who we work with. To provide a lot of options to our users, value to our partners, and high quality all around helps to create a ‘win-win-win' for PetHub, its partners, and the members. We're excited to be working with and," concluded Arnold.
