Identification

GPS Collars – The GPS pet collar 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. The following websites offer GPS pet collars: www.gundogsupply.com, www.amazon.com, www.pettracker.com and www.secureapet.com.

 

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. 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.
