(Seattle, WA, July 25, 2012 )– PetHub (www.pethub.com), the company that provides the fastest and safest way to get lost pets home, today announced that Red Dingo (www.reddingo.com) has expanded its PetHub powered product line with 13 new QR digital ID pet tags. Red Dingo, known for using high quality materials that are designed for durability and long lasting good looks, selected PetHub based on its unique ability to add Quick Response (QR) codes, GPS email notifications, shelter alerts, and consumer-friendly Web profiles.
“People have been so excited about the Red Dingo tags powered by PetHub that not only are we expanding our product line, we’ve also expanded to multiple countries, including the UK,” said Craig Chalk, CEO at Red Dingo. “With PetHub, not only do we get the best QR digital ID technology to identify pets, we also get to help our customers feel good that they can protect their lost pet while looking awesome wearing one of our 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. The new QR digital ID Red Dingo pet tags start at $15.50 (USD) and includes a free PetHub account which provides immediate, one-scan access to critical information such as a 24X7 toll-free number, emergency contacts, necessary medications, current allergies, immunizations, vet and insurance providers, dietary needs, license and rabies tag numbers, and much more. Pet owners can update the information anytime, anywhere from any browser or mobile device.
“Red Dingo has been an amazing partner and has already expanded from 50 designated retailers when we launched to now reach over 900 with the potential to expand to more than 7,500,” said Tom Arnold, founder and CEO of PetHub. “Consumers love what we’re doing to help get their lost pets home and we are thrilled to have a great go-to-market partner like Red Dingo to help protect pets worldwide.”
In addition to the Red Dingo retailers, the new tags can also be purchased directly on PetHub.com. Red Dingo customers receive free unlimited storage data as well as access to educational articles, relevant event listings, and local destinations added by the PetHub community and experts. Pet owners can optionally upgrade to PetHub’s Silver subscription ($39 per year) which not only helps owners notify local animal shelters if the pet gets lost but also sends owners an email with the exact location of where the tag was scanned with a GPS-enabled phone. The Gold subscription ($49 per year) upgrade includes all the benefits of the Silver subscription as well as $3,000 emergency insurance that covers a dog or cat for injuries sustained while lost.
