Get Help For Your Pet When You Can't Get Home with the PetHub WalletCard™

You've had a long day at work and all you can think about is getting home, putting on your PJs and vegging on the couch with your pets. There's just one more stop to make - you opened the last can of cat food this morning and while you're at the grocery store anyways you might as well pick up something quick for dinner - and with that your day is finally done.

The traffic light leading out of the parking lot seems to take forever but finally it turns green and you're on your way.

CRASH

Looks like that van that just ran the red light and broadsided you was in a rush to get home too, but now you're both headed to the hospital for heaven only knows how long.

This is a scenario that can happen to any one of us at any time, and if you're single and live alone it's a fear that can weigh heavy on your mind. What if you're so badly hurt that you're unable to tell first responders you have animals at home that may need help now that you're injured and heading to the hospital?


This is where the PetHub WalletCard™ comes in. The physical card links to an animal's free online profile at PetHub.com, where you can add a photo, description, veterinarian records, unlimited emergency contact information, license and rabies tag numbers, vaccination dates, behavioral issues, and much, much more.

"The WalletCard is an ID card for animal caretakers to put in their wallets and on their key chains to alert police and medical workers that an animal may be at the person's home needing additional care," said Tom Arnold, Founder of Pet Hub, Inc. When the card is used by a first responder, any emergency contact associated with the animal's profile is notified that something important is happening. "While first responders are hurrying to get you to the next level of medical care, your pet's emergency network is responding to help your pet," concluded Arnold.



For only $4.95 (plus S&H) you not only get a card to put into your wallet, you also get a smaller card with the same unique ID that can go onto a keychain. Side 1 contains a clear "call to action" to help first responders know that you're not the only one who may need assistance. On side 2 there's a unique QR code, web address, and phone number to a 24/7 call center to help the Police, Fire Department or Medical personnel reach other people on your pet's emergency contact list so they can make sure they can get them their food or medications.

Knowing that there's a plan in place for someone to be notified to take care of Mudpie should I not be able to get to her is priceless, and thanks to our friends at PetHub FOUR lucky winners in the US are going to have the same peace of mind by receiving a WalletCard of their very own!

  1. This is an awesome idea! My human just filled out a physical card with some basic info for her wallet, but this is way better!

  2. After Momo's accident, Claire made herself a card for her and for him to carry in the wallet, and another same one that is on the driver's sunscreen in the car : emergency informations about humans and about kitties are at the same place. Purrs

  7. When I attended a CPR class for cats and dogs in the Spring, I learned that 1) I needed to keep all vet info and emergency vet info within reach, and 2) a safety card like this in my wallet (and The Hubby's too!) I made one out of paper, but of course, one more like a credit card makes better sense.

  8. This is a really great idea. I have my BFF who watches my boys, Hamilton and Jefferson when I'm out of town. It would be nice that she would be notified in an emergency.

  12. Although I have a sticker on my front door, notifying emergency personnel of the number and types of animals we have inside, I don't have a specific plan if my husband and I were to be injured together. This has me thinking about it though! Thank you!
