Amazing Find: IDTag.com Puts an APB Out for Your Lost Pet
Each pet tag purchased on IDTag.com – a variety of adorable cat- and dog-appropriate styles retail for $9.99 – has a serial number engraved on the back. Visit the site to create a pet profile containing your address, phone number and other important data about your pet, including a photo. If your furry BFF happens to run away, you can log on to IDTag.com and a lost-pet bulletin with photos and descriptions will be sent to a network of shelters within 50 miles of your pet's last-known location, as well as more than a dozen lost-pet Web sites. If someone finds your pet, they can plug the serial number from the animal's tag into IDTag.com and pull up your contact information – instantly reuniting your family with your pet.
The Web site offers other support services as well, like a 24-hour hotline and a program to help you create lost pet posters, and it only charges a $6.95 subscription fee per year (after the first year, which is free). But finding your missing pet? Priceless.
