How does the GPS system work?

Our customers’ #1 favorite feature is the GPS Map that is sent with the PetHub scan notification (note, this is not a live GPS tracker). The rescuer scans your pet's tag and then PetHub pulls the GPS information from the rescuer’s phone. With their permission, PetHub can send you an immediate GPS location alert of where your pet was found.


GPS availability is only through the Premium Subscription. Find out more about our Premium services at
