About PetHub.Gives / Every Pet Charity

Profound Commitment to Lasting Impacts

In September 2023, driven by a profound commitment to making a lasting impact, PetHub.Gives / Every Pet was launched. This new entity is rooted in our belief that the technology developed for returning lost pets home again quickly can become a beacon of hope for lost pets and their families, regardless of race, location or economic status.

Recognizing the challenges faced by shelters and municipalities with limited funding, PetHub.Gives / Every Pet was formed to bridge the gap. We're dedicated to equipping these vital organizations with proven visual ID tag technology, which saves shelters money and, more importantly, keeps families together by swiftly reuniting lost animals with their fur-ever homes.

PetHub.Gives / Every Pet stands at the intersection of innovation and compassion, driven by the knowledge that advanced, equitable pet identification technology can lead to tangible, life-changing outcomes. We invite you to be a part of this transformative journey – a journey that ensures pets find their way home in record time, while strengthening the bond between animals and their human families. Your support fuels our passion and enables us to make a profound difference, one paw print at a time.

Taking a leap from his role at Microsoft, Tom established PetHub.com with the simple aim of making a positive impact after having experienced one of his own animals going missing (his cat, "Taz," was later found and safely returned home).

Tom's commitment to pushing boundaries in the pet industry through PetHub.com's and others technologies remains at the heart of his work. His dedication shines brightly in the form of PetHub.Gives, a nonprofit initiative that seeks to help shelters and municipalities with limited resources enhance their pet identification and return-to-home programs. It's Tom's belief that the solutions developed by PetHub and other like-minded technology companies can lend a hand in reuniting lost pets with their families.
