Ensure your pet has proper identification.

If you find your pet, please let us know so we can remove him/her from our lost reports. And see below for ways to ensure you will always be reunited:

  • Wear a current rabies tag and an I.D. tag with your present address and phone number.
  • Make sure that the veterinary office where your pet received its last rabies vaccination has your current address and phone number, too.
  • Your dog or cat's collar should fit around your pet's neck so that you can fit two of your fingers underneath the collar. If you have a puppy or kitten, adjust or change its collar as it grows.
  • Cats and kittens should wear "break-away" safety collars.
  • If your pet habitually loses his collar, explore the idea of a pet harness, which is secured beneath his/her arms and chest like a vest. It is much more difficult to lost and less likely to choke a pet that may get caught on a fence or branch.
  • Make an appointment for a microchip identification implant. If your pet ever loses its collar and I.D. tags, its microchip I.D. will help it return home to you.  
  • If your pet has a microchip, ensure your registration is up to date.
