Fastest Pet Recovery Solution Grows Stronger through New Acquisition
Seattle's PetHub.com acquires Atlanta-based PetQRtag.com to blow past its 100,000 user-base
In over a year, 300 PetHub "Pack Members" have been returned to their families, with 97% home in under 24 hours, and 35% in less than 4-hours. "Considering the national average is that less than 2% of cats and 18% of dogs ever make it home again at all, this is an incredible accomplishment,"
One in three animals will go missing in its lifetime. 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.
"This is a problem that we've solved," 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 – nearly half of many animals' lives! -- when he or she could have been returned in under a day with our service."
PetHub's use of wireless technology, GPS, Bluetooth, 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.
"PetQRtag.com and PetHub share a common vision: to get animals back to their families," said Mark Kooyman, founder of PetQRtag.com. "PetHub has built an incredible solution and I'm excited to introduce our users to PetHub's ever-growing approaches to keeping animals safe."
