The PetHub Community is about helping each other find resources as we guide our pets through their lives. As the proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child," and certainly most of us look at our pets as our kids and we want them to grow in a safe and healthy environment. Please help us build this community by participating through asking & answering questions in the forums, suggesting articles and "Perks" you'd like to see offered and generally helping one another.

Quick view: Pet Microchips #FAIL
Recently, I’ve seen several news articles about municipalities considering abandoning external identification tags for pet licensing and moving to a microchip-only program for pets in their communities. I find this approach worrisome at best, and potentially detrimental to the overall lost pet recovery of pets in their community. Why? Because it takes too many things going “right” for microchips to work. When pet microchip manufacturers talk about their product, they are optimistic to the point of arrogance. While confidence and hubris gets them sales, it is at the cost of animal safety and an increased expense to animal welfare organizations and individuals who replace a physical ID tag with a surgically implanted chip. I acknowledge that my credibility is suspect in pointing out the microchip short-comings because my company develops modern digital identification tags and software solutions. Anyone spending a modicum of time speaking with animal care professionals, however, will quickly learn the truth that microchip companies have oversold their solution as the panacea for pet identification. Before I go into the failings of microchips, I want to first point out that I am... (go to article)

Quick view: PetHub Gives Back: What Is Shelter Share?
At PetHub, we are all about helping as many pets as possible. Not only do we help pets directly by helping get them home quickly with PetHub tags, we also help the shelters and organizations that find homes for pets through our Shelter Share program.     We started our Shelter Share program to do our part in giving back to the organizations that are focused on helping lost and displaced animals in their communities.
