Dogs are an integral part of the family and unfortunately, most that go missing are never recovered
NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 20, 2008
"Dogs are an integral part of the family and unfortunately, most that go missing are never recovered," said Simon Buckingham, CEO of Zoombak. "It doesn't have to be that way, and we're delighted that PetSmart recognizes the potential of our Advanced GPS locator to reconnect pets with their owners quickly. The sooner they are safely back home, the sooner they are out of harms way."
The National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy recently found that family pets are lost nearly every two seconds, resulting in more than 10 million missing pets each year. Zoombak will partner with Petsmart to offer a series of hands-on, in-store demo days at select locations throughout June and July. These demos will provide dog owners with the opportunity to learn about Zoombak's easy-to-use locator technology and the unmatched peace of mind this new tool provides.
Weighing only 2.5 ounces, Zoombak features a compact, water-resistant design and a long-life rechargeable battery. The secure, easy-to-use interactive website lets owners create custom safety zones, set real-time alerts and generate on-demand locates. The Zoombak Advanced GPS Dog Locator retails for $199 and offers service plans starting at $9.99 a month. Zoombak provides free live phone customer service that can help users locate their dog 24 hours a day, virtually anywhere in the US.
