Pet health benefits are beginning to create a wave with more and more people becoming pet owners. According to the APPA, pet ownership statistics for 2017-2018 report that 68% of U.S households include pets, which equates to 84.6 million homes. During this time, Americans spent $69.5 billion on their pets. Of this mind-blowing dollar amount, $18.26 billion was spent on vet care. We have created an affordable pet plan which includes a bundle of various pet health benefits and discount services to assist in alleviating the heavy burden veterinary bills may bring upon owners.
Introducing Pin Paws Plus. Our bundled pet health benefits product includes Pin Paws, Pet Assure, whiskerDocs and Pin Paws Rx.
Pin Paws is composed of two features: PetCLOUDand PawPinner.
- PetCLOUD provides your pet with an online profile where you are able to store your pet’s identity, veterinary information, vaccination records, pet insurance information, emergency contacts, city registration, and upload important documents. Within this system, should your pet become lost, you have immediate access to downloading a pre-filled Lost poster with the click of a button.
- PawPinner provides your pet with an innovative pet tag with a unique QR code correlated with your pet’s online profile information. Should your pet become lost, the person who finds your pet can scan the code, access your pet’s profile online, or call our 24/7 Customer Service Hotline and provide the identification code on your pet’s tag. Through accessing your pet’s profile, your preferred contact information will be provided so that you can be notified and be reunited with your pet. Also, at the time your pet’s tag is scanned, you will receive a SMS text message with your pet’s GPS location. Imagine how convenient this will be if your pet becomes lost after veterinary office hours and there is no facility open to scan your pet for a microchip or the microchip has moved. PawPinner was created to fill the gaps during the time that a microchip is non-useful.
One main goal of Pin Paws is to decrease the amount of time you are disconnected from your pet and get them home faster should they become lost.

Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). This is up from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted.
