OBX LOST PET TIPS-PREVENTION

LOST PET TIPS-PREVENTION  

It's always unexpected when a pet is lost. 

       The following list has been compiled to prepare for the unexpected.

       1. Always keep a proper identification tag affixed to your pet's collar.

Having your cell phone number and address on your pets collar, can help greatly in quick reconciliation.

       When on Vacation many Outer Banks Pet Friendly rental properties have temporary Pet Tags. These tags have the OBX Rental Companies information so that local animal control can quickly locate the pets owner. Please affix the temporary tag securely to your pets collar.

           

    2. Keep a current photograph of your pet at all times. 

        Just like People the appearance of our pets change over the years.

   Social media is used widely, for helping find lost pets. Keeping photographs of your pet on your cell phone can be very helpful. Current photographs are needed, to help identify your pet.
   
 3. Keep a copy of your pet's health, shot records and rabies certificate in the glovebox of your vehicle. 
             By keeping your pets records in your glovebox they will always be with you while traveling with your pet. 
           Sometimes having this information on hand can provide your pet, access to places that require a rabies certificate, like Dog Parks, Doggy Daycares etc. Two of the four Dog Parks on the Outer Banks will require registration and proof of current rabies vaccination.

          Please be aware North Carolina state Law requires that pets have a current up-to-date Rabies Tag. It is unlawful to fail to provide a collar or harness, with attached tag, which must be worn at all times.
         Please stay prepared for the unexpected, it's easy as 1, 2, 3.
Pampered Pets Guide was first published on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2003.
