Time To Check Your Pet's ID

This week is National Pet ID week. It may sound a bit boring but the anguish of having a lost pet is something you don’t ever want to deal with. Most pet owners assume it will never happen to them. But it does and it can happen in a split second. Someone comes to the door, a child opens a gate, a fence gets a hole in it or a worker goes in and out and so does your pet. Pets get lost on trips and getting in and out of the car too. Having proper ID is one of the most important and consequential aspects of having a pet. Please check your pet’s tag and make sure the address and phone number are current. We can’t emphasize enough how much the spring and summer weather increase the likelihood of your pet getting lost. Keep your pet safe and ensure they have proper ID.

National Pet ID Week April 17th - April 23rd

This week is National Pet ID Week. It's a good time to review an incredibly important safety tip--making sure your pet's ID tag is current. As pets are outside with the warmer weather, the potential for them to get lost increases. It can happen in an instant--even indoor pets can get lost. A door or gate is accidentally left open, a leash breaks or your pet hears a loud noise and gets spooked. Please take a moment and double-check your pet’s ID tag. Are the address and phone number current? Have the letters become worn and illegible on the tag? Having a visible and easy to read ID tag will encourage someone who finds your dog or cat to contact you immediately rather than keeping your pet or taking your pet to the shelter. Having a tag is important even if your pet is microchipped.
