You will want to include the following information on your pet's ID tag:

  • Pet name
  • Your name
  • Phone number
  • Address

You may even want to include an alternate phone number. Some pet parents will put a home number and a cell phone number but will not include the home address. Depending on what information you want to provide, you'll find that what is personalized on your pet's tag may vary from someone else.

Generally you'll be provided up to five lines of personalization. Make the best of those lines to ensure that you get your beloved pet back.

In many cases, stray animals may have a collar, but not tag or microchip. In order to get your pet home safely, that ID tag is necessary. Even if your pet has a microchip, you want to make sure that the ID tag is on the collar. You will get your pet back quicker and safer.
