To make it easier to keep your pet safe:

  1. Keep a collar on your pet with its name and your phone number
    1. Personalized pet tags are available at local pet stores and online very inexpensively.
    2. Preferably use a cell phone number over your home number.
    3. During natural disasters, home phones are often out of service
  2. Keep your current rabies tag on your pet so it can be traced back to the Vet who administered the vaccine and their records will allow you to be contacted.
  3. Have your animal microchipped. All Veterinarians and animal shelters have chip readers which make getting your pet home easy.
