Digital pet ID tags now available

Pet tags offer GPS alerts

DETROIT – PetHub (www.pethub.com) has a patent pending on its new line of pet ID tags.

The tags have Quick Response (QR) codes, GPS email notifications, shelter alerts, and consumer-friendly Web profiles to its stylish tags.

With PetHub, anyone with a Smartphone can easily scan a QR-code on a pet's tag or use a unique Web address on the front of the tag to access a pet's critical information and immediately take proper action to help a lost or injured animal.

Pet owners can update the information anytime, anywhere from any browser or mobile device.

"We envision a day when every family dog or cat will be protected with a digital ID tag," said Tom Arnold, CEO and founder of PetHub.

The new tags are currently available at retailers or can be purchased directly on PetHub.com starting at $15.90 (USD).
