Well, I don’t like to brag, but I happen to have a bit of knowledge regarding this “Tag Your Pet” thingy.
Of course, this is just off the top of my head….
What is ‘Tag Your Pet…It Ain’t Graffiti? Glad you asked…it’s F3’s new pet retention program:
Did you know that only 2 -3 % of unidentified, lost cats are reunited with their people? That the unidentified, lost dog reunite rate is only 13% – 15 %? That 80% of pet owners believe it is important for their pets to wear pet ID, but only 33% actually have their pets wear tags?
An Affordable Solution
‘These are frightening, and often heartbreaking numbers for people that have pets’, says Teri Ensley of Furry Faces Foundation, (F3), ‘and this is where F3 can provide an inexpensive method for people to increase the likelihood of reuniting with their pets! ‘Tag Your Pet…It Ain’t Graffiti’ is our newest pet retention program. It’s simple. It’s affordable. It’s a pet tag made for you on the spot!’
‘A brand new IMARC pet tag engraver has been donated to our group. Our goal is to let pet owned folks know that an ID tag and collar are the #1 way missing pets are reunited with their owners and provide pet tags at just $5.00 – $8.00 each’, explains Tammy Lyle, F3 Vice President, ‘Funds we raise from pet tag sales will be rolled back into ‘Tag Your Pet…It Ain’t Graffiti’ so we can provide free pet tags and collars to our clients who are financially restricted. All animals want to be reunited with their people and we want to help increase their odds of success’.
The Experts Chime In With Study Results
‘Simply said, a collar & ID tag is the most direct method to reunite pets with their people’, Dr. Weiss of ASPCA. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/21/the-importance-of-pet-tags
“The return-to-owner rate is abysmal for cats. If we could get cat owners to try using a collar with identification, it would be a big deal.” Dr. Linda Lord, Assistant Professor of Veterinary Preventative Medicine, Ohio State University. http://researchnews.osu.edu/archive/catcollar.htm
Convinced it’s time to tag your pet?

MIWS…you rock! Sorry we missed your fabulous post the first time around. The Experts have conducted the studies, and the results are in: An ID tag and collar are the #1 way animals are reunited with their owners. And they highly recommend a microchip as a back up to the collar/id.

Saturday, August 18th, 6 pm – until it gets dark
Hotwire Online Coffeehouse, 4410 Calif. Ave SW
