As the next hurricane season rolls in, its time to take a look at some new inventions that could help reconnect you and your pet in the case of a disaster. This article ran on WBIR.com.
After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina, it’s no wonder more pet owners are thinking of ways to protect their pets in case of an emergency. Last Year, the Knoxville based company PetSafe held a contest online for new pet invention.
The first place winning invention is the new PetSafe Micro ID Collar. In an emergency, it can help reconnect you with your pet. It feels like a regular dog collar, but your pet will have no idea that it’s stored with all kinds of helpful information just in case they get lost.
“The way the collar works is it has a built in water proof flash memory card which is a sub port,” PetSafe’s Doug Grindstaff says. “It simply opens up and connects to any standard computer with USB”
Then it’s easy to access your pet’s emergency contact information and instructions on how someone should care for your pet.
