SEATTLE (February 24, 2015) – PetHub, Inc., the leader in innovative tools to get lost pets home fast, will be demonstrating its recently-launched Signal Tag™ at the Global Pet Expo, where it will be available wholesale to retailers for the first time. Special discounts will also be in place for attendees of the event, which takes place in Orlando from March 4-6, 2015.
“The Signal Tag combines the most effective elements of lost pet prevention and recovery tools, and adds new features that underscore PetHub’s dedication to helping pet owners find their lost pets as quickly as possible,” says PetHub, Inc.’s Founder and CEO Tom Arnold. “Too many pets go missing every year. The statistics are daunting. Because of that, we at PetHub were determined to build a system that would help solve this challenge and provide the best possible care for pets.”
Previously only available to consumers via the PetHub website in white, the Signal Tag now comes with colorful new collar attachments and includes the following features and services for pet parents:
- Improved design and packaging
- A QR code linking to a free online PetHub.com profile
- Improved battery life
- Bluetooth Low Energy (4.0-enabled)
- A motion-tracking device to create a “virtual fence” with location-based alerts
- An easy-to-use range finder with 150-500 foot range (dependent upon phone)
- A quick-activating flashing light to help locate your pet in the dark
- A free online profile and 24/7 Found Pet Hotline
- A free iOS and Android app so you can “crowdsource” to find your lost pet
The Signal Tag comes with the complimentary online Basic PetHub Service and app, so that pet parents can easily set up a customized pet profile with privacy level choices. This service is especially important because it provides rescuers with access to critical medical and emergency contact data, essential if a pet is found in need of medical care.
The optional premium service for all PetHub products – including the Signal Tag – provides PetHub’s Community “Amber Alert” System, as well as scanned tag notifications with GPS mapping.
The tag has already received two major industry awards, including Dog Fancy’s “Editor’s Choice” and Pet Business’ “Pet Identification Industry Recognition Award.” The Signal Tag can be ordered for $74.95, plus $2.95 shipping and handling, at www.pethub.com/SignalTag.
