National Pet Identification week starts on April 20th. To celebrate, we want to revisit a few statistics.
About half of the 5-7000000 animals enter animal shelters US each year are lost pets. Currently, only 2% of cats and 15% – 20% of dogs with their owners reunited. This means that 1 in 3 pets lost never make it back home. Sad and surprising numbers, to be sure, but it’s a very simple way you can avoid the fate of us for our own pets. Ensure a readable, up-to-date ID tag to your pet’s collar fastened and keep it on them at all times.
“But my pet is microchipped. Why do they have an ID tag?” You have to ask.
A microchip registered only helps if a pet is brought to scan to a shelter or veterinary practice. Why do savior make this trip? Your pet’s best chance of a speedy return home comes when they wear an ID tag. The tag should contain your pet’s name and your phone number. With only this information, anyone you to find immediately to your pet can contact you.
Even though keep a collar and tag on an animal seems elementary, only 33% of pet parents say they always Keep ID tags on their dogs and cats. (How many LOST PET flyers you saw in the neighborhood, what the animal was not wearing a collar and tag at the time of his disappearance?)

Collars and ID tags should have a permanent place on your pet, so make sure that they used conveniently and properly so that you do not have to have it for a different reason than the off described above.
