KNOW YOUR PET is SAFE AND SECURE!

Pin Paws  - Keep track of your pet with a dynamic lost-pet notification tag and online pet profile.

  

Pin Paws is a simple, yet innovative way to keep track of your pet. 


Pet owners are encouraged to visit Pin Paws to sign up for a dynamic lost-pet notification tag and online pet profile. Owners can be contacted quicker in the event their pet goes missing. When a lost pet’s tag is accessed, the pet owner’s information is provided through the online profile and the owner receives a SMS message and email with the geo-location of their pet. That way, pets can be reunited with their owners faster. 


Our coupon code is GLBAS. Through our website, pet owners can sign up and save 30% off a monthly membership. There is also a multi-pet discount. You can sign up here.
