Since we've been moving a lot lately, keeping our tags current has been a bit of a challenge. But we were lucky enough to get to know the nice folks at BlanketID.com who graciously supplied us (free :) with some new tags that are forever tags.
These tags are very different....they not only look super great, are very lightweight, waterproof and scratch proof, but they are very stylish. They have a tracking number and web address printed on the back, so that if Gracie or I get lost (heaven forbid!) anyone who finds us can login and find out all kinds of information about us, who our vet is, what our phone number is and more.
Here's how it works...Four steps to get your lost pet home faster:
1. Purchase and register your tag: Enter your unique blanketID number to activate your membership.
2. Complete your online profile: Create an online record of your contact details together with photos and details of your pet. You can change and update this information as often as you choose (even if you are travelling!). Here's our sample profile page:
3. If your pet gets lost you can report your pet missing and blanketID.com automatically sends a broadcast email to local SPCA, animal hospitals, shelters, and other blanketID members in your area. The email links to your online information so that everybody has 24/7 access to a full description and photos to help identify your lost pet. It even has a pre-prepared poster you can print out and spread around the area.
4. If your pet is found the finder simply enters the blanketID tag number at blanketID.com to gain immediate access to all of the information they need to care for and safely return your pet.
The BlanketID tag may be the only tag we'll ever need – if we move again, or any of our information changes, we just update our profile!
Here's Gracie with her cool tag....she's smiling 'cause she had just finished a nice herding session with the sheepies! They have lots of super nice designs too.
When you purchase a BlanketID tag you support and help animals in need. More than 15% of their profits go into this fund.
The cost of your blanketID tag (which is $24.99 in Canadian dollars) includes your first year’s membership and your membership starts when you register your tag.
And here's the best part!!! If you are interested in one of the BlanketID tags, you can click this link or banner ad (below) and $5.00 will go to my former shelter - the Southside Animal Shelter! Cool huh? Get clicking!
