The American Humane Association estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year. One in three pets will become lost at some point during their life (reference – ASPCA).
“One in three pets will go missing at some point in their lives, and 90 percent of them would not be reunited with their families without identification,” said Ken Klaus, Director, HomeAgain Merck Animal Health.
We all know how stressful it is when your dog or cat goes missing.
BlueTags™ are NOT a chip.
BlueTags™ are dog and cat tags, albeit some pretty awesome ones.
We dont have anything against chips, they have their place. But they are worthless as an “instant solution” to return your pet home quickly and safely. Unless you have a chip scanner in your back pocket and I’m guessing you dont. Also there are lots of different pet chip databases and if you dont remember your pet chip ID number…good luck. And that only shows the registration data anyway – it tells you nothing about where your dog or cat is RIGHT NOW.
Nearly everyone has a cell phone on them. To read the BlueTag™ you need a QRCode app and fortunately most cell phones already have one. If not, you can download a free one from the App Store or Google Play in about 20 seconds. Or you can simply type the short URL into any browser if you don’t have a scanner. If you find a lost dog or cat and you don’t have your phone with you, you can bet the 12-year old kid next to you does. (They can help you download the app too:)
And the laser accurate GPS location really is priceless.
“Hello, is this Susan ?
Yes it is, who is this?
My name is Steve Johnson. I just found your dog here on the beach.
On the beach! What beach? Where ?..Steve are you north or south of me!? Help!
Just check your phone, you just got a text of the exact location.
I can see from the scan here that your dog’s name is Bailey.
Bailey and I will wait for you here.”
