SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pet technology brand and makers of the most trusted GPS pet tracker, Whistle, announced today that it is teaming up with pet shelters around the U.S. to help more adoptable dogs find - and stay with - their forever homes. The one-for-one campaign was created to raise awareness for the estimated 4 million lost pets that wind up in shelters each year, and encourage pet owners to take responsible and simple steps to ensure their best friend is #NeverLostAgain.
For every device purchased between Black Friday (11/25/2016) through Giving Tuesday (11/29/2016), the company will donate a device and three months of free service to an adoptable shelter dog. The donated device will make it easier for new pet parents to rest assured that their newest family member is getting the best possible care from day one.
“We came up with the idea to donate pet trackers to adoptable dogs after spending a lot of time working with our shelter partners this year,” said Ben Jacobs, Whistle co-founder and CEO. “A large majority of pets admitted to shelters are ready to go to a loving home. This pay-it-forward campaign makes it so that pet owners can both protect their own pets, while supporting shelters doing important work for pets in their communities.”
Pet owners use Whistle GPS Pet Tracker to keep track of their pet’s location and activity right on a mobile app, receiving notifications when their pet leaves a designated safe area and when it has hit its daily activity goal. Whistle has been celebrated by pet and technology experts as the most reliable and affordable pet tracker on the market, and is trusted by more than 150,000 pet owners across the United States.
