No. Pawnec has two components. We can categorize that between essential and nice-to-haves. Our free lifetime subscription falls under the Essential subscription which is, from the word itself, essentially all you need to meet the minimum requirements to reconnect your missing pet with you.
The nice-to-haves are under the VIP (Very Important Pawdel) subscription. In times of emergency, these additional layers of information and functionality in your pet’s VIP-subscribed asset will improve the chance of your missing pet reconnecting with you. In non-emergency recreational circumstances, your pet’s VIP-subscribed asset will entitle your account to exclusive discount vouchers and redeemable VIP rewards from partner brands.
How about Pawnec's VIP features in Proactive Alert System and Expanded Location Intelligence?
Let's face it. Your pet will not go missing every day, every week, or every month. If you have that chronic problem with your pet, then you shouldn't be asking anymore the question of whether you need to invest in his/her safety and security.
As long as you put any of the affordable Pawnec-powered accessory around your pet's neck, you can always depend on it when the dreadful day comes that your pet goes missing. Upgrade on demand when you deem it necessary.
Remember, you can always count on the VIP features when the need is heightened, but it would be too late to put a Pawnec accessory on an absent pet — a missing pet. We don't have problems with opportunistic subscribers (upgrade one month then cancel anytime). Just don't blame us every time you miss out on the exclusive recreational perks for VIP subscribers. 🤞🏼
