GPS Collars and Trackers – The GPS pet collar/tracker allows pet owners to locate their cat or dog anytime and anywhere. Most collars can locate a pet within a mile, display a pet’s position and movement, and track up to three pets simultaneously. Search online for GPS/trackers for purchase.
Microchips – Most veterinarians, shelters and rescues offer microchip identification and placement. Contact your local vet or shelter (see Shelters and Low-Cost Services under Pet Assistance) for fee information. Note: Make sure to keep your contact information up to date. Also see Calendar for low-cost microchip clinics.
Pet Tags – For instant tags, automated machines may be found at larger pet stores. If you are looking for an alternative to the jingling “tin-tag,” consider slide-on tags, embroidered collars, wooden tags or rubber tag silencers.
