Pet Hub ID tags




My first question is: Do you have pets? If you answered yes then I have another question for you. Have any of them ever tried to get outside and run? I have been lucky and the few times that has happened we were able to find them right away. I just remember the helpless feeling of the What if that came along with not finding them. I was given the opportunity to work with PetHub on their Tag protection program and also their DNA program.




All you do is sign up and add it to the PetHub National Recovery Database, select a Digital Pet ID Tag, then link it to you pet. If your pet is ever lost anyone with a smart phone can scan the QR code on the tag and it brings up your contact information (you choose what to put on there) For me I put my phone number and email address. There is also a number on the tag to call in case the person finding the animal doesn’t have a smart phone. The number is 24/7 so no matter what time it is someone can help in returning a lost animal. To see more on how it works click HERE.

Some people have asked me if this is similar to a microchip. To me this is very different. For a microchip you would need to take the lost animal to a vet or the police station to scan it and contact the owner. With PetHub ID tag you don’t need that and can help the animal sooner.


I know as soon as I put it on my dog House, I felt a lot better. He’s a big boy (about 110 pounds) and loves to run. Also if you have more than one animal that could get outside and lost you can link all of them to the same account and “family” webpage specifically for your pets.  

As for the DNA kit, it’s pretty cool. There were  two q-tip swabs that I had to rub on the inside of the cheeks then send it in When it was ready they sent me the electronic DNA certificate on his Genotype (no his breed. That is a separate one).  "PetHub's partnership with DDC for DNA testing provides you, the pet owner, with a method of obtaining your pet's unique DNA record that can then be safely attached to your pet's secure profile on PetHub.com.  This process identifies 10 distinct and unique markers that are specific to your animal (essentially a DNA fingerprint or "paw print")." It also comes with a Tag with a QR code. It’s nice that I have both the personalized tag and the PetProtect360 Kit. It comes with a 3 month trial of the petHub premium Portection that includes instant scan notification with GPS mapping & PetHub’s community amber alert system. After that you can choose to buy the premium plan after that. Rates are very affordable for both the DNA and the digital ID Tag.

  2. I like that it is smartphone friendly. We are moving and Layla loves to sneak out and it's great to know I would have an ID on her that could actually get her back home (hopefully this never is needed - LOL)

  4. I like that you don't need a scanner to be able to identify the lost pet, and anyone who finds a dog, cat, etc. with one of these tags and submit the ID number. This is going to help bring more lost pets home.

  9. I like the fact that they are digitally enabled so that if your pet is lost, the person who finds yourpet can find information and/ or track down the owner, depending on the information on the ID tag.

  18. The thing I like most about the Pet Hub tag is that if the user does not have a QR reading device, they can call in to the 24/7 Lost Pet call center that is offered on many of the tags, or manually enter in the web address that links directly to the pet’s profile.
