Did You Know?

  • Nearly 1 out of every 3 pets will get lost at some point during their lifetime.
  • Without proper identification, 90% of lost pets never return home.
  • Local shelters hold untagged animals for less than 3 days. Tagged pets are usually held longer, and the shelter will attempt to contact the owners.
  • If a lost pet is found without a tag, one may think the owner does not want their pet back, and the finder never attempts to find/contact the owner.
  • With the number of natural disasters in the past few years, thousands of pets found their way to shelters and foster care because they had been separated from their owners. Lack of pet identification and outdated contact information combined with the fact that residents themselves were displaced, made it extremely difficult to reunite owners with their pets.

Whats the big deal about the sound of the tags for my pet?

Does your pet take their food out of the bowl and eat it elsewhere? Morelikely they do not like the noise that their tags make when it hits their bowl.

Ever notice your dog will start to bark even if they can’t see the other dog, they know the sound of the jingling tags and it becomes an anxiety trigger.

Were you or your family waken and couldn’t get back to sleep because your pet was restless during the night?

Karen Londo, PHD and certified applied animal behaviorist says “There is one simple way that so many of us can make our super-eared dogs happier and make their daily lives better: Protect them from the incessant jingling of their tags.”
