Losing a pet is such a heartbreaking experience. After losing a dog ourselves not so long ago, the feelings of desperation are something we know all too well. Thankfully, Tilly, who we subsequently adopted, was found, thanks to the amazing people of Ferndale, WA. We came to understand , however, that, no matter how much you think that this could never happen to you, it could, and so you should do whatever you can to protect your pet just in case.
Platinum Pets' award-winning Pawsitively Safe Pet Finder Tags won't guarantee that your pet won't ever go missing, but they offer pet owners a great tool that could be instrumental in locating your four-legged friend, sooner rather than later.
Incredibly durable, the tags feature a scratch-proof, water-resistant epoxy coating with a unique code located on the back. In order to activate your tag, you simply enter the code on the Pawsitively Safe website and create a profile for your pet which can be updated as necessary.
If the unthinkable happens and your pet does go missing, the system allows you to easily generate a Missing Pet poster which you can share on social media - a great resource when it comes to finding a missing dog or cat. On the flip side, if someone finds your pet, they can enter the code on the tag on the company website and be able to access your pet's profile. They will then be able to go into links within the profile that will enable them to contact you by text or email and let you know they've found your pet. You'll also receive a map of the area in which he or she was found. The great thing for the finder is that this unique system eliminates the need for a trip to the vet to see if the dog or cat they've found is microchipped.
This great system is easily accessible via your PC, phone or tablet and best of all, there are no monthly fees.
While we still advocate for getting your pets microchipped, we think that this wonderful system adds another layer of protection, and that's definitely a good idea!
