Internet Start-up Raises Pet Safety Bar, Lowers Price for National Dog Day
PetHub.com offers its $12 digital ID tag for $1 to support Animal Miracle Foundation & Network efforts. PetHub's industry award-winning pet recovery system is the most comprehensive, leading-edge solution available leveraging smartphone technology.
PetHub is known for its award-winning digital pet ID tags that can quickly access an animal’s online profile to view critical medications, vaccinations, license and rabies tag numbers, microchip numbers, and of course, as many emergency contacts as the owner cares to list. PetHub’s benefits also include a free 24x7 “found pet hotline” as well as optional emergency pet medical insurance, GPS notifications & maps, and an “Amber Alert”-like shelter notification system.
PetHub.com is offering its $11.95 digital ID tags for only $1 dollar this weekend in celebration of National Dog Day. National Dog Day has two goals: 1) to honor dogs, and, 2) to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse.
“PetHub is a bunch of animal-loving software developers bringing high-tech solutions to an age-old problem. We’ve created a world-class solution for pet protection by providing free data storage, a 24-by-7 staffed call center, and the ability to link one of our tags or our partners’ tags to an animal’s online profile,” said Arnold, “and other than the cost of the tag, the basic service is free.”
Arnold refers to their free “Bronze” subscription where anyone can link a Red Dingo, VIP, Dog IDs, The Better Pet Tag, or Sofa City pet ID tag utilizing the PetHub QR code to the pet’s free online profile. In that profile, owners can store photos, medications, dietary needs, pet insurance information, and anything else that would help a Good Samaritan, Shelter or Vet have the critical information they need to take appropriate actions to keep an animal safe.
“With 50.4% of us having an iPhone or other smartphone that can scan PetHub tags, over 90% of us with cell phones that can call PetHub’s 24-hour ‘Found Pet Hotline,’ and the ability for a pet owner to transmit their animal’s profile to nearby shelters, we’re providing the most comprehensive and affordable solution out there where anyone can get a dog or cat home fast,” added Arnold. “Like anyone, I find the stories about a pet getting home again through their microchip after being lost for 7 years to be amazing. Our focus at PetHub, however, is getting an animal home in a matter of hours using technology that we literally all have at our fingertips,”
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and American Humane Association, 1 out of 3 dogs or cats can expect to go missing in its lifetime with less than 2-percent of cats and 18% of dogs making it home again. Of the 6 to 8 million animals that enter shelters annually, 25% of them are returned to their original owners, 25% are adopted to new families, and the remaining 50% never leave the shelters. “I have microchips on my dog and two cats. Chips are a critical safety net, in my opinion. The frightening statistic, however, is that only 5% of pets are chipped in the U.S. Worst of all, of those animals that are chipped, 58% of the chips’ data is outdated. We’ve fixed that problem with PetHub.com by making it simple to update your pet's information anytime, anywhere, with a few clicks of the mouse,” said Arnold.
Starting today until midnight Sunday, August 26th, PetHub is offering its $11.95 tags for a flat fee of $1, postage included. “This is important. Getting lost animals home quickly has been a problem for far too long. PetHub.com has created a solution and we want to help get more animals protected,” concluded Arnold.
