Get A Collar & Tag
YOUR PET’S ONLY VISIBLE ID
When your pet has an ID tag with your phone number on the collar, it dramatically increases the chances your pet will be returned home when lost. We know, mind blowing, right?

Microchip & Register
YOUR PET’S SCANNABLE SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER
Now, let’s face it – unless your dog is a masochist, he’s probably not that into his collar. And when the collar comes off, pets still need to know how to get a hold of you. The only way to do that is to have them microchipped and registered.
License Your Pet
YOUR PROOF OF OWNERSHIP
Licensing is another important way to have your pet identified and returned to you if lost. It’s also visible proof of ownership in case you aren’t one of those people who looks exactly like their pet.
Adopt a Pet
(IF SAVING A LIFE ISN’T ENOUGH)
Animal shelters are busting at the seams with loveable new friends. If you need more reasons than that to adopt, we’ve compiled a list for you.

SO, YOU’RE NOT READY TO COMMIT
We get it. Not all of us are ready for that kind of responsibility. Luckily, there’s a way you can save some pets even if you’ve got a lot going on, but it’s best that you meet the following requirements.
Here’s a quick checklist:
- Got reliable transportation?Pets can’t get to their own vet appointments.
- Have a couple of free hours a day?Pets have a lot of love to give, so give some back.
- Can you commit to providing a home for the time needed?Sorry, we know how you feel about commitment, but we need some sort of reliability.
- Are you in good standing with kittens you’ve met in the past?Some organizations ask for references.

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!! OH...but its NOT for most pets/animals!
Did you know that more pets get lost on July 4th than any other day? Yep, even normally well behaved pets sometimes freak out and run away. Here are our July 4th tips so you and your four-legged family member have a safe and happy holiday:
Microchip your pet. Even if your pet slips out of their collar, a microchip will identify a pet as yours and not a stray. Just make sure the microchip is registered. A microchip is only effective if it’s linked to a registry account complete with your up-to-date contact information. You can do this for free at Found.org. It’s free to register, free to use and free to update!
Collar and Identification Tag
Even indoor pets need a collar and ID tag. While microchips are helpful, they require a pet professional with a microchip scanner. But a collar and ID tag make your animal instantly recognizable as someone’s pet. Complete the tag with your pet’s name and phone number.
Thundershirts are a great way to calm pets who are easily spooked by foot traffic or fireworks. You can also speak to your vet about homeopathic and prescribed anti-anxiety solutions.
Give your pet a cozy place to retreat when they’re feeling stressed out. Close all your windows and doors to reduce potential escape routes and excess noise from crowds, music and fireworks. Also give your cat or dog access to cool water, a blanket and bed and their favorite toy.
Happy 4th of July!
