Meeting our Client's Mission
PetData has been providing animal licensing for municipalities since 1994. PetData's goals are based on the belief that a successful animal licensing program eases the burden placed on municipalities. Proper licensing results in a reduction in the number of animals entering shelters, and can help eliminate expenses that would may associated with the care, feeding, and disposition of these licensed animals. Licensing enforcement helps ensure compliance with rabies vaccination requirements, which in turn reduces the probability of an outbreak of rabies in the local animal population. PetData believes proper education on the benefits of licensing and vaccination generally promotes more responsible pet ownership, resulting in a safer, more informed community.
History of PetData®
PetData was formed within PetFind®, founded in 1993 as a division of SafetyNet, Inc., one of the country's largest driver safety monitoring companies. PetFind® was originally a 24-hour, 365-day lost and found service utilizing the toll-free number 1-800-PET-FIND. In 1994, the City of Dallas decided to privatize its animal licensing service, and PetFind® bid on the contract, and in 1995, PetFind was awarded a three-year contract. In 1997, the City of Raleigh chose to privatize its animal licensing services, and the company was awarded this contract as well. In November of 1998, SafetyNet was purchased by a competitor and PetFind was divested from SafetyNet and renamed PetData®, Inc. PetData now focuses solely on the administration of animal licensing programs.
