Of the over 10 million pets that are reported lost every year, only 1 out of 5 dogs and a staggering 1 out of 50 cats finds their way home.
In a perfect world, microchipping your pet would be enough. If your dog or cat was lost, the finder would know a microchip was present and quickly take your dog or cat to a technician, who would have the scanner that matches your pet's microchip system. The chip would be easy to find, facing the right direction, and would scan properly. Your contact information would be current and you would be reachable.
We do not, however, live in a perfect world. Microchipping has its shortcomings:
Microchipping is a great last line of defense should you and your pet become separated, but it is not a perfect system.
That's why Dogster and Catster has created the Together Tag service. Behind our stylish, reflective tag is a service that provides shelter and community alerts if your dog or cat goes missing and the ability to add secondary and out-of-area contact information at any time, all for a low one-time fee that covers the lifetime of your pet.
Together Tag is a great stand-alone solution, or the perfect complement to your existing microchip. We strongly recommend both!
