There is a real need for a single nationwide database where pet owners can register their pets and keep information up to date.
Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
The PAWS Pet Company, Inc. (OTCQB:PAWS) (OTCPK:PAWS), the innovative pet services company, announced today the launch of PET-REGISTER.COM a nationwide pet registration database, and a strategic alliance with the Emergency Pet Assistance Foundation, (EMPAF) a non-profit organization that provides missing pet search services
With over 6 million family pets reported missing each year, the PET-REGISTER.COM database and supporting technologies provides an important service for the pet community.
John Nesbit, Executive Director of EMPAF, commented “over 50% of people who lose a pet cannot provide a current photograph or detailed description of their pet. There is a real need for a single nationwide database where pet owners can register their pets and keep information up to date."
PET-REGISTER.COM allows pet parents to register their pet and keep their pet information up to date at no charge. If a registered pet goes missing, the pet parent is only a few clicks away from alerting neighbors, animal shelters, veterinarians, and rescue groups of the missing pet. According to Dan Wiesel, Chairman and CEO of The Paws Pet Company, “We want to assist pet parents in protecting the safety of their pets. Following our acquisition of Impact Social Networking, PET -REGISTER.COM is the first step in in our plan to provide integrated database, mobile, web and social media technologies to address this need in the pet industry,”
The Company plans to launch an aggressive awareness campaign with the Emergency Pet Assistance Foundation to alert pet owners, veterinarians, and animal shelters, about the registration program. According to the American Pet Products Association Pet Owners Survey, there are approximately 78 million owned dogs and 86 million owned cats in the United States.
