together_tag1One 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.

togethertag2Together 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.

Together Tag

Hi B.L. – Thanks for the great post, we certainly appreciate it.

Over the past five years that Dogster.com has been around, we’ve heard many tragic tales about people being separated from their pets. However the separation occurs, the disheartening truth is the same: there’s nothing worse than losing your best friend.

That’s why we created the Together Tag. We did a lot of research in the Dogster.com and Catster.com communities and with vets, shelters and pet lovers in general. We found that whilst microchips are great as the last line of identification, it’s that first line of defense that is so crucial: a disaster-proof tag that contains a link to a website where up-to-date pet profile and (multiple) contact information is always available.

Thanks again for the post – we look forward to getting Benny Bix Ochman Labradoodle Puppy’s Together Tag in the mail and on the way shortly.

Woofs!

Thanks so very much for helping animals. Your idea of the Together Tag is outstanding, I wish more human groups would coincide their efforts towards animal welfare and protection. I will post this tag on my website. I am a big supporter of identification on pets at all times.
