SEATTLE (August 25, 2014) — PetHub.com, the world’s fastest way to get lost pets home, offers its basic digital pet identification tags for $1.00, one-day only, on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, to celebrate National Dog Day. The coupon code NATDOGDAY gives users a $13.95 discount off every ID tag and collar on PetHub.com, taking its $14.95 basic tag down to 1-dollar. The coupon can be used on up to 5 items during National Dog Day, offer ending August 26, 2014, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.
In just 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,” said Lorien Clemens, Director of Marketing & Outreach at PetHub, Inc.
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. Now, for only $1, a pet parent can buy a tag and link it to a free account on PetHub.com. We are calling this ‘Mission Pawsible.’”
PetHub’s use of wireless technology, GPS, 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 viral growth.
For 1-day only, on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, PetHub.com will be offering the $13.95 discount off all its tags and collars, bringing its basic $14.95 ID tag down to $1 by using coupon code NATDOGDAY.
