HOW TO PROTECT YOUR PETS NOW:
Safeguard your pets before they are lost by following the tips below:
- License and Microchip your pets. Also make sure your pet has an identification tag. Hundreds of animals are returned in the field annually by Animal Rescue and Enforcement Officers without ever going to the shelter because they had proper identification.
- Pet-proof your yard fence so your cat or dog will be safely confined. Be sure to check your fence regularly for new escape routes.
- Keep fence gates securely locked. This is for the safety of both your pet and any visitors (wanted or unwanted).
- Never allow your pets to roam free in the neighborhood. Leash them at all times.
- Always transport a cat in a carrier. Never take your cat to the Vet or anywhere else unless it is secured. A carried cat can bolt and hide if frightened by loud noises. When a cat is frightened in strange surroundings, especially with traffic noise around, it will hide and will not come to you.
- Always leash dogs when taking them anywhere. When a dog gets loose in an unfamiliar area their chances of ever finding their way home are very low.
- Get some good photos of your pet now, before it's too late.
Take close-up shots so that details show up well.
Keep taking shots until you get a few good ones that really look like your pet. Most snapshots of pets look like any other cat or dog. You want your photos to be unique and your pet to be unmistakable.
