"I recently paid a visit with Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles and was fortunate to tour the new NKLA Adoption Center. The modern architecture and the clean-line design is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and was built with the comfort of humans and animals in mind," said Connie Howard, Director of Animal Welfare Relations at Pethealth Inc. "The model of working with rescue groups to provide a central adoption center, that is equally as efficient and professionally run, is very exciting for all of us at Pethealth."
The success of PetPoint has made Pethealth the largest aggregator of data on animals entering AWOs. As of June 2013, over 12.2-million animal intakes and over 4.7-million adoptions have been completed via the application since the product was first launched in 2005. Today, nearly 400,000 animals are being cared for in PetPoint licensed AWOs.
About Best Friends LA
The mission of a no-kill city can only be achieved when people come together, Best Friends works collaboratively with animal rescue groups, city shelters and passionate individuals to make this a reality. For many years, Best Friends' presence in Los Angeles was carried out through its many adoption events, spay-neuter campaigns and partnerships with city and county government. In early 2012, the Best Friends Pet Adoption & Spay Neuter Center (http://bfla.bestfriends.org/adopt-a-pet.html) in Mission Hills, California opened to the public.
PetPoint, first introduced in 2005, is now licensed by over 2,000 animal welfare organizations in North America and has facilitated the adoption of over 4.7-million pets. As a cloud based application, animal welfare organizations can not only better organize and care for their homeless and abandoned animals, but can also reduce significantly, if not eliminate, their IT-related infrastructure costs. PetPoint is provided free to animal welfare organizations on the basis that these same organizations use the Company's 24PetWatch microchip and gift of insurance programs for all companion animals adopted, adoptable animals are then published on the Petango adoptable search platform. The 24PetWatch microchip program is the most widely used microchip and lost pet recovery service operating in both Canada and the United States.
