Identification tops for pets

Make sure your pet has identification. Losing a pet is a very emotional thing. It's really important that all animals have identification so they can be returned to their owners. An I.D. tag on your pet's collar is the easiest method.

The tag should include your name, address, telephone number and the pet's name. If there's extra space, the phone number of the veterinarian is also a good idea. If you move, make sure you get a new tag for your animal with your new contact information.

Pets can also be microchipped. Many humane societies and veterinarians have a scanner which identifies if an animal has a microchip.If there's a microchip, a phone call is made to identify the owner. Either way, please take a moment and check that your favorite pet has identification so you can get him back safe and sound in a hurry. If you have any questions, please call the Rutland County Humane Society at 483-6700.


19 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Orange and White.

I think that once you visit with me you will see that I do not look or act my age. I am a guy who has lots to say and who loves attention. My previous owner was moving and could not take me along so here I am waiting for a new home. I am very playful and have lived with other cats and dogs before so I will fit in nicely to any home.


Hamster. My two other siblings and I were left in a fish tank in front of someone's home. We really do not like sharing our space with each other so a separate cage would be necessary for us.


4 month old. Spayed Female. Guinea Pig.

My owner surrendered me because they had too many guinea pigs. I am cute and cuddly and will be a great addition to any family.

Miss Kitty

5 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Long Hair Black, Tan & White Tiger.

My original family left me with another person and I was so upset that I just would not get along with the kitty currently in their house. I am now housed with other cats and I seem to be doing just fine. I have a great personality and I like to play with a toy on a string.
