Together Tag – a new pet recovery service from Dogster & Catster & Americn Red Cross
By BL Ochman
One in three pets will get lost in their lifetime. Sadly, most of these dogs and cats do not find their way back home.
Now Dogster.com, has teamed up with the American Red Cross to create The Together Tag program which combines Internet technology, social networking through Dogster’s millions of members, and community resources to help re-unite families with lost pets in the event of in the event of a a natural disaster, terrorist attack, fire, etc.
If you report your pet stolen, posters can be immediately generated through the Together Tag site and distributed to a lost pet recovery network including more than 5,000 shelters nationwide with your pet’s photo, description, and contact information. That was the main feature that convinced me to try the service.
Together Tag claims its pet ID and recovery service will combine Dogster’s technical know-how, social networking capabilities and vast community resources to keep pets and their families together. The life-time cost of the service including unlimited updates of contact informaton, is $25. A $5 donation to the American Red Cross is made from each membership fee.
My dog Benny already has a microchip, and a collar with our phone number, but Together Tag sounds worth having, so I’ve signed up. Take a look and see what you think. Seems like it can’t hurt and it could help.
