Pet ID Design Contest

Each year, approximately 10 million pets are lost in the United States, and more than 6 million animals wind up in the nation’s animal shelters. Tragically, only 15% of dogs and 2% of cats without ID are reunited with their owners.

To prevent the heartache of losing a pet, American Humane created “Every Day is Tag Day,” a nationwide effort held annually on the first Saturday in April. The event unites thousands of animal care and control agencies, veterinarians, and humane organizations in the common goal of urging pet owners to equip their pets with ID tags and/or microchips to maximize the chance of their safe return should they stray from home or be lost on vacation.

This year, one way you can help celebrate is by designing and entering your very own pet ID tag! One lucky winner will be chosen and their tag will be produced and available for sale. Enter now for a chance to win and help raise awareness about the importance of pet identification. Hurry, the contest ends Sunday, February 24th.
