Not Your Average Neighborhood Dog Wash!
San Francisco, CA (1888PressRelease) March 27, 2012 - The American Humane Association has adopted April 2nd as Every Day is Tag Day to help raise awareness on the importance of getting your pup micro-chipped and/or tagged.
K9 Scrub Club is proud to help the cause and offer complimentary identification tags and free engraving for your pet(s) on this day. Simply stop by our San Francisco location on Monday, April 2nd, and we will be happy to provide a complimentary name tag and free engraving for up to two pets.
In addition to providing your pets with proper identification through micro-chips and/or identification tags, it is a good idea to be aware of the following tips brought to you by the American Humane Association, if your pet is lost:
• Act fast! Don't waste days hoping your pet will come home. The sooner you begin your search, the better the odds of finding him/her.
• Search your neighborhood or the area where your pet was lost, and let people know he/she's missing. You may want to offer a reward. Call your pet's name and check any places they could have become trapped, such as in garages or under vehicles. A lost pet often will hide during the day, so be sure to go out again at night with a flashlight and call for them. Sometimes a can of food can lure a hungry and scared pet to you.
• Call in a "lost pet" report to your local animal shelter(s) and animal control authority immediately. Some larger cities have more than one shelter, so be sure to contact all of them in your area.
• Visit your local shelter(s) in person every day to search for your pet. Many animals are difficult to describe over the phone, and only you really know what your pet looks like.
• Make "lost pet" posters or fliers using your pet's photo. Put them up in your neighborhood and in post offices, libraries, pet supply stores, veterinary clinics and grocery stores.
• Inform your veterinarian and groomer that your pet is lost in case they receive a call.
• Place ads in local newspapers and on free internet classified sites such as Craigslist. Offer a reward in case someone found your untagged pet and was thinking of keeping him/her.
• Watch the "found" ads in the newspaper and on the internet. Respond to any that are even close to your pet's description. What one person describes as a "tan shepherd mix" may look like a "yellow lab mix" to someone else.
• Call your local radio stations. Some radio stations will broadcast lost pet information for free. Give them very detailed information on where your pet was lost, their description and how to contact you.
