ID Your Pet
Overview
If your pet gets lost, it can be a heartbreaking situation if you can't find him/her. Seagoville Animal Services takes in hundreds of lost or stray animals each year. By law, we are required to hold a lost or stray animal for 72 hours. Unfortunately, most of these animals have no ID of any kind, making it nearly impossible to find the owner. Surprisingly, many people never think to look for their pet at the shelter. Without ID, most pets never make it back home.

Remember, pets can’t carry a wallet or speak for themselves. An ID tag, rabies tag, or microchip can make all the difference between a happy homecoming and heartbreak. ID your pet today!

ID & Rabies Tags
If you own a cat or dog, please make sure your pet always wears a collar with a current ID tag and/or rabies tag. Tags can be purchased at many pet supply stores and veterinary offices.

Microchips
If you have a hard time keeping a collar or tag on your pet, consider getting a microchip. Microchips are tiny electronic capsules that are embedded under the pet’s skin. A code in the chip links the animal to its owner through a database. Furthermore, it can’t come out or get lost! Seagoville Animal Services, as well as many veterinary clinics and other animal care agencies, can scan animals and find the owners. Most veterinarians offer this service.
