In recognition of National Pet First Aid Awareness Month, BringFido.com, America's leading pet friendly travel website, is pleased to announce its partnership with the American Red Cross to power the hotel finder feature on the service organization's recently released Pet First Aid App. The app, which also provides helpful tips on emergency first aid for dogs and cats, now enables people and pets displaced by disasters to find temporary lodging at nearby pet friendly hotels.
Available to both iPhone and Android users for 99 cents, the Red Cross Pet First Aid App can quickly connect users to BringFido.com's team of pet travel experts, who can assist callers with information on hotel availability, pet fees, and weight limits. Users can download it directly from the iTunes, Google Play or Amazon Marketplace app stores.
"BringFido is excited to partner with the American Red Cross to expand availability of our pet friendly travel services to those in need of emergency assistance," says Melissa Halliburton, founder and president of BringFido.com. "Our call center team is committed to providing 24/7 customer support in times of natural disasters, and the app helps us deliver on that commitment."
Founded in 2005, BringFido.com features the world's largest directory of pet friendly hotels, B&Bs, and vacation rentals. The company, based in South Carolina, also helps customers find pet friendly businesses, such as dog walkers, pet sitters, and veterinarians. The company's pet friendly hotel directory is searchable via the website and through BringFido.com's own pet-friendly travel app.
