CUDDLY Inc., a pet tech leader in providing solutions to non-profit animal rescues, announces the launch of CUDDLY ID, an innovative platform and app powered by globaliD, a leader in the identity verification space.
Over 3,300,000 dogs and 3,200,000 cats are adopted annually from rescues and shelters nationally. CUDDLY ID will become the easiest way to track and verify pet adoption applicants, helping to streamline and improve the process for their animal welfare partners. globaliD allows users to prove their identity and reputation for adoption purposes without compromising their personal information and documentation.
“The technology available today has the potential to improve this somewhat antiquated adoption process. By modernizing the lines of communication, our animal rescue partners can deliver animals into permanent homes sooner. Utilizing the CUDDLY ID platform will eliminate needless delays created by clerical inefficiencies, potentially reducing the demand on partner resources and ultimately saving the lives of more animals. Moreover, the use of machine learning can enhance the adoption counseling process connecting adopter and a pet, optimizing the selection process and potentially reducing the number of returns back to animal welfare organizations annually,” said John J. Hussey, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of CUDDLY, Inc.
Greg Kidd, co-founder and CEO of globaliD and founding partner of the investment firm Hard Yaka, is a firm believer that one’s identity credentials should be truly portable and owned by individuals themselves rather than corporations or governments. Greg has acted as an advisor/investor for numerous startups including Ripple, Square, and Twitter.
“One of our primary objectives is to ensure that globaliD integration is quick, convenient, and seamless as possible, and a prime example of that is our partnership with CUDDLY and what they’ve been able to do with CUDDLY ID in such a short span of time,” said Greg Kidd, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of globaliD. “Digital identity has never been more critical; a smart and robust identity framework not only empowers individuals and institutions, it serves as a foundation for a stronger, better-connected society. It’s only natural then that the use cases for self-sovereign identity are limitless. In some cases that means powering global economic exchange. In others, such as with CUDDLY ID, it means creating a safer world for dogs up for adoption.”
