ID for Your Pets

Does your dog or cat have current ID tags? If not, you can go to Petsmart or Petco and have new ones made instantly. As an animal communicator, I get a lot of lost pet calls. Many of the pets do not have collars or ID tags because they don't typically leave their backyard or home. But, when they decide to leave to explore the neighborhood, it is always easier for animal control or anyone else that finds your pet to get your pet back to you if they have your information.

This same advice applies to microchips, too. If you have adopted your pet from a rescue shelter and your pet is microchipped, please remember to update your information with the microchip company. I can't tell you the number of times that the contact information with the microchip company still lists the adopting shelter rather than the pet's owner.
