Pethealth Inc. Acquires HumaneSolution.com

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 15, 2015) - Pethealth Inc. ("Pethealth" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired HumaneSolution.com ("HumaneSolution"), a web-based data management system for clinics operated by animal welfare organizations (AWOs) in the US and Canada which offer spay/neuter and wellness services to the public and other AWOs.

HumaneSolution is the original SaaS solution for the shelter clinic industry, with the first version debuting in 2006. Since the initial launch, the system's creator, Adam O'Neil, has expanded the system's capabilities driven by user feedback and will continue to do so as part of the Pethealth team. Adam recently began the rollout of the fourth version of HumaneSolution to existing and new clients.

"We are thrilled to add HumaneSolution.com to the software solutions we provide to animal welfare organizations, along with our flagship product, the PetPoint Data Management System," said Brad Grucelski, Vice President of Software & Insurance Solutions for Pethealth. "We have witnessed a growing demand for clinic software geared toward the unique services of clinics operated by AWOs - both from our existing PetPoint client base and beyond. Bringing HumaneSolution and Adam into the Pethealth family is a logical extension of our ongoing commitment to our partners in animal welfare and we couldn't be more excited about our future together."

"It's a great honor to be a part of the Pethealth team," said Adam O'Neil. "We'll be able to deliver more value and polish to HumaneSolution than ever before. I look forward to staying engaged with customers and continuing to make HumaneSolution the best spay/neuter and wellness system there is."
