Pets Plus Us funds HomeSafe™ Recovery Services for all Canadians


CALGARY, AB - PetLynx Corporation is pleased to appoint Pets Plus Us as the new Sponsor of the HomeSafe™ Recovery Service.

As sponsor of the HomeSafe™ Recovery Service, Pets Plus Us is funding free recovery services (lost and found) to all Canadians. Now when Canadians lose or find a pet, the HomeSafe™ recovery service provides them with a place to post pictures, automated searches of shelters and pounds, printable posters and the very unique DataSketch™ technology that creates searchable digital profiles of the animals involved. 

Pets Plus Us already has a world-class reputation as the Champion of Pet Owner Happiness. All Pets Plus Us customers will receive a complimentary subscription to the HomeSafe™ Animal Record which stores all pet information online for the benefit of pet owners and authorized service providers.  This is in addition to the PetHub tag customers receive as a part of their Blue Ribbon Benefits. Blue Ribbon benefits are provided to all customers which also include thePetHelpFone, Compassionate Care Line, Pet Poison Helpline and other pet services.  

"We strongly believe pet registration is key to reuniting pets with their owners if they ever become separated," said Randy Valpy, Pets Plus Us Top Dog. "It's why we include the HomeSafe™ Animal Record program as part of our coverage."

Today, the HomeSafe™ portal provides recovery services to more than 350 Canadian communities. Since May of 2006 when HomeSafe™ launched online, the automated recovery service has assisted the Canadian public in more than 295,000 recovery episodes. In many cases lost pets are returned to their owners within hours of being reported lost. The Pets Plus Us sponsorship ensures the Canadian public will continue to be served promptly with the best automated recovery technology in the world. 

"By adding the strength of the Pets Plus Us brand to the HomeSafe™ Automated Recovery Service, we continue our tradition of service and underwrite our vision: Lifetime protection for Pets...  Peace of mind for people," said Larry R. Evans, CEO of PetLynx Corporation.

Pets Plus Us launched in the Canadian market in 2013 with a re-imagined pet health insurance model that includes Canada's first Wellness-only plan. High in their priorities is the support of a dynamic community that can empower pet owners to make the right choices regarding the wellbeing of each pet. This support of the HomeSafe™ recovery service positions Pets Plus Us as a world-class leader in the Urban Animal industry. Pets Plus Us is a founding member of the Alliance for Urban Animals, an industry group creating healthy communities for pets and people. Pets Plus Us is a division of RSA Canada, a leading home, auto, lifestyle and commercial insurer in Canada.
