No loving family ever intends to lose their pet while traveling. Unfortunately, accidents can happen - and pets that are wearing appropriate identification have a better chance of being reunited with their owners quickly and safely. Here are a few tips on preparing your pet for a trip:
Note: unfortunately, there are numerous scams involving lost pets. If your pet gets lost, only provide the most basic description. Do NOT provide this list of identifying marks. Instead, if someone calls claiming to have your pet, ask him or her to describe the pet to you (be sure not to ask 'leading questions' that could provide the caller with hints).
While traveling, attach temporary contact information to your pet's license tag. A phone number where you can be reached while on holidays will help to bring your pet back home to you as soon as possible.
