Spring Hill, FL (PRWEB) October 30, 2006
MWR Enterprises has unveiled a new website called Pets-911.com. 12 months of research and development has produced a new level pet rescue and recovery tools to aid both the pet owner and the rescuer in terms of recovering the pet quickly and safely.
Our system holds over 100 points of data including, multiple points of contact, websites, email addresses and telephone numbers. Owners can easily update their information via Pets-911.com anytime of day. Contacts like a local animal rescue shelter, veterinarian, or a long distance third party who can relay information in case the owner is displaced in a natural disaster like those victimized by Hurricane Katrina.
To minimize further trauma to the lost pet or animal, the rescuer has information supplied by the owner such as pet demeanor around unfamiliar areas, new people and other animals, what kinds of food and drug allergies the pet has and what their reactions are. The owner can also add medical history. Data includes pet verbal commands, diet menu, feeding schedules, pet lives indoors or outdoors, housebroken, etc. This will change by species if a dog, cat, ferret, horse or other animal.
The Flash Drive USB unit is universal as it can be read by any Good Samaritan rescuer computer or laptop which could be any Windows, Apple or Linux operated system built since 1997. The data is entered by the pet owner who logs in to Pets-911.com. From there the user has both one free pet listing and any number of premium based pet listings.
Pets-911.com hosts the First Online International Pet Database Registry supporting 190 countries in 10 languages and is available to both free and premium-based users.
Premium pet listings also have added functionality of saving pet data locally to USB flash drive in two universal file formats: HTML and PDF. Since web browsers come bundled in most cases, common web language or HTML can be used regardless of Operating Systems used since 1997.
By running the software program from Pets-911.com, we bypass the usual software requirements needed by specific operating systems. Even if the rescuer has no Internet access, the USB flash drive will plug and play and open the computer or laptop internal web browser by working in an offline capacity. In non-emergency situations, the stored pet data can be printed in either format which is also beneficial for the owner to create when leaving their pet with a pet sitter or boarding kennel.
Better Solution than Microchipping?
USB technology works on 200 million computers worldwide. Microchipping has no where near that number of scanners available. Nearly anyone can use a flash drive once shown how. Up until now, the alternative and less convenient process for the rescuer is to transport a lost pet or animal to an authorized location to read the chip. By allowing any average person to rescue a pet, they can potentially bypass the process of sending a pet to the local pound which frees up already overcrowded animal rescue shelters nationwide saving valuable resources. While there are huge successes in microchipping, the technology has encountered more than a few false positives in recent past because newer microchip scanners have not always been tested for compatibility to read older chips according to credible sources. Our position is not to replace microchips but to enhance it with our system which increases the odds of successful recovery of lost pets.
Our chosen USB flash drive is water-resistant and comes with a 10-year manufacture warranty. Our testing confirms that this unit could be considered waterproof after removing the dust cap and submerging in a 6-foot deep pool for 30 minutes and driving over it with a one-ton vehicle. Under both extreme conditions the USB faithfully ran on multiple PCs and laptops without fail.
We also developed a storage wallet for pets which fits both small to large collars. Material is durable neoprene rubber (like scuba diver suits) and comes in various colors. It aligns with the collar band (like a belt through a belt loop) to help secure the USB flash drive cap and prevents the flash drive from hampering a small pet stride or becoming ripped off by extreme use or activities. It fits on horse halters or attaches to pet crates, bird cages or aquarium with simple modifications. A metal Pet ID tag informs rescuer that USB data is on the collar along with website and pet ID tag number in case the rescuer has no USB access.
Please Help Spread the Word
We wish to get information on this pet technology out to veterinarians, breeders, pet rescue shelters but also to local authorities, emergency organizations like FEMA, Homeland Security and the National Guard and the general public.
