What to Put on an ID Collar

The law requires pets to wear a collar in public. Attached to the collar should be an ID tag. The tag should contain the pet’s name, owner’s name, and address. A phone number is also preferred. Some pet-owners use two sets of ID tags for extra security purposes. The second tag is typically associated if your pet is microchipped with a locator. The second tag would contain the microchip company’s name and phone number.

Consider Microchipping

Microchipping is the process of adding a locator chip inside your pet. The truth is, even with a tag, your pet may never be returned. Your pet is not just any animal, they are your adorable companion. If you find him or her adorable, chances are someone else will as well.
