A Toy Tiger...gifted to us!!

Image A Toy Tiger...gifted to us!!

What a Gift! We were out of town and while in a Big Box store engaged in conversation with one of the corporate vendors.
We mentioned that one of our beloved cats was being boarded as well as in treatment at our Vet's office because 'Sammi' was diagnosed serious blood disorder which had so far cost $3,000+ for diagnosis and treatment.
The vendor' s half-Toyger cat had recently delivered a litter of kittens which could each be sold for a substantial price.
TOYGERS are a newly developed breed with the beauty and grace of a 'toy tiger'
Because she recognized that we provide extensive care to our cats,,she offered one to us free of cost.
We would have to drive from California to Seattle to pick him up, but anyone knowing the characteristics of this new breed would not turn-down such an offer.
Baby 'Kevin-Toyger-Beyer has lived-up to the TOYGER hype.
Nothing can compare to a sleek, muscular, baby tiger Kevin has developed into. TOYGER temperaments are as advertised. Sweet little tigers!

What a gift. The gift of a lifetime.

My two kids

These are my two kids Frankie 13 and Mattie 8.I just bought
them both Love Your Pets tags and they both loved their tags. I got them one pink and one blue. They both have been known to lose their tags and have also been known to go on a four hour neighborhood tour of which we found them just as the dog catcher drove by. I feel safer now that they both have new tags. I would go nuts if something happened to my kids. Thanks for helping to keep my kids safe with me.

Importance of Tags!

Image Importance of Tags!

All my pets have tags and I also order more as info has changed. I have all indoor pets but you never know if one day one might escape! But my story isnt about my pets its a story is about a cat that has showed up at my door the last two weeks. He has no collar, no tags. I've tried to find the owner with postings online. I have called shelters/rescues with no luck. and with rescues all filled up with cats/kittens right now and no room for one more this little one has no home. (I am at my pet limit for my city so I cant have another) I have been feeding it each day and he shows up each night since that first night. Please everyone, order a Pet ID for your pet, its a small price to pay for the safe return of your pet if it does get lost.

Best friends

Image Best friends

After 2 of our older dogs passed away, our Rottweiler became very sad. I always wanted a Yorkie and found one at a puppy rescue. There's a 174 pound difference between the two but they are best friends! Everyone loves walking by our yard and seeing the little one "keeping guard" while standing on the big one's back.


Image Izzi/Izumi

I adopted Izumi, Izzi for short, from the SPCA a week ago, and her tags just came in the mail. She is two months old.



My puppy, Duke, got lost one morning and I looked for him for twelve hours. He had wandered almost a mile away. Thank goodness he was wearing his little name tag from Love Your Pets. They called the number on the tag and he was safely returned!!!


My cat Marlon is quite an old cat, and he'd been outside more than usual we didn't know why though. One day I walked into my room and opened the door and inside was another cat. We finally found out why he was always out. Another cat was terrorising him and scaring him so much he'd leave from the slightest noise.

My Jack Russell/Rat Terrier "TAZ" ran away yesterday. Within a half an hour of his disappearance someone who lives quite a long way from us called. Without his tags from you he would have only been recovered if someone bothered to have him "microchip checked". Thanks for the tags. They saved our dog.

Lily and Amber Show Off New Tags

My 2 Shih-Tzus, Lily and Amber had just returned from the groomer and were showing off new do's, neckerchiefs and Love Your Pet ID tags....

After Surgery Scare

I adopted a Yorkie from the local animal shelter and named him Benji. Shortly after he became sick and had to have emergency bladder surgery for his stones. Benji also must take half a pill twice a day for the rest of his life and had a e-collar on his neck so he would not lick his incision. When he got home he was outside on his lead in the front lawn to use the restroom. I was at work and got a text from someone saying I found your dog. I called my boyfriend in a panic and he told me he got off his leash. Luckily a family had found him and called the number on his I.D. He could have very well died had he gotten lost with the e-collar on his neck that made it hard for him to eat or drink, and without his medicine. We also have three cats, Captain, Annabelle, Sadie that go outside and it gives me peace of mind to know that if they ever were lost or hurt we could be contacted. Thanks Love Your Pets for saving my babies life.

My boys. My heroes.

My (now estranged) husband and I adopted our boys 12 years ago (they are 14 now-on 2012). When our marriage ended, it ended badly. Long story short, I was at the deep end of despair. I was broken and scared. But the thought of losing the boys gave me strength to fight for my life. I worked hard to regain my life because I know there was no alternative. Now, we're happy and strong. And I owe my life to them.

Rescuer's Nightmare

Image Rescuer's Nightmare

My mother and I have been involved in rescue for many years and have fosters from several different groups in the KC area, including our own personal cats that we have had for a long time.
On October 3, 2009 we had the ultimate Rescuer's Nightmare. We had a house fire with our precious babies trapped inside. There were so many lost, but so many were saved! And, in a lovely miracle, all the cats that got out of the house into the huge outside world were recovered in less than a week! It blows my mind how amazing our neighbors and vets and the fire crews were. Our neighbors came from 4 blocks away with carriers and kennels to put cats in. Our vet heard about it because the dispatcher called her to let her know they would be bringing a large number of cats up to the clinic. She actually recognized the address as ours and came to our house to help there! She called in all the vets and about half of the techs too! One of those really nice firemen even got bit by my cat, but he didn't drop him!
This truly tragic event continues to plague my mother as she lost precious babies...many that she had since they were kittens!

Thank you, Love Your Pets!

Image Thank you, Love Your Pets! Max got out of our fence. I don't know how. It has never happened before, but it happened somehow. We were so upset... only someone who has had this happen to them can know the feeling. I knew that he had his Love Your Pet tag on and it was the only thing that gave us hope. We got a call later in the evening. Max had wandered over 2 miles away and a kind person returned him to us. Thank you to that person and thank you again Love Your Pets.


Unexpected Cat Treat

Image Unexpected Cat Treat My cat Olive loves the new addition to her collar!

Although she is an indoor cat, Olive recently got out and was lost for 15 days. During this time I was emotionally and physically lost myself. She did not have a tag at the time. Finally, a kind person found her and contacted me via one of my "lost posters" which were plastered all around the neighborhood.

Olive is home now and wearing her new tag. Should she sneak out again, I have the peace of mind to know that she is more likely to come home.

As an added bonus, the stainless steel tag reflects light. When she is sitting in sunshine, at just the right angle, it catches a magical reflection which drives her nuts.

My Boys

Image My Boys These are my indoor boys, but you can never be too safe so they both wear your ID tags. Kona (striped) wears the brass and Clancy (white) wears the stainless.

PS. My suitcase wears the red heart. Thank you for making us feel safe.

Amber the Clown

Apache is the Man

Image Apache is the Man After we changed collars on our old dog and he ran away, we never saw him again. We had not ordered his pet tag yet. You can bet that when we got Apache just now, the first thing we did was order his tag. We don't want to lose another little boy.

Apache the new Guy

Image Apache the new Guy Here is our little boy sporting his tag. Since he is only 11 weeks old, we thought you might enjoy watching him grow old with us. We know you like to see pets wearing your tags. Here is a real cutie.

Patti our Pal

Image Patti our Pal Patti is our third pet that we ordered tags for. She is a 3.5 pound long haired chihuahua, and being so small we are afraid she would never find her way back if she ran away.Here she is proudly wearing her tag.


Image skitz I just got a pet id for my puppy. He's not wearing one in the picture I sent because thats the picture of when I first got him.I didn't want to loose him so I found Love Your Pets ID and ordered him one. I was a little worried I wouldn't get it but u didn't let me down! Thank you for possibly saving my pet in the future.

A dog tag that inspired

Image A dog tag that inspired It wasn't our dog that a tag helped but it did help. It was the middle of winter in Ohio and I was coming from a doctors appointment when I saw two dogs hovering over each other next to a fence. Apprehensive at first, I tried to coax the dogs towards me not knowing if they were vicious. As it turns out they weren't vicious, they were cold. I was able to get one of them into my car and another gentleman that was there to the other. After I got home, I called the number that was on the tag that rang into a veterinarians office. I gave them the name and they were able to pull the record on the dog and, after giving them my number, they passed it along to the owner who called me back almost immediately. That night the dog stayed with us but was reunited with his family the next day. This inspired my wife and I to get a dog and....YES! she has a tag.

Because of a lost pet...

Image Because of a lost pet... One day on my way back to work after lunch, I spotted a German Shepherd running in the busy intersection looking totally lost. Traffic was quite busy and I was so worried he was going to get hit. Luckily I was able to catch up to him about a mile ahead as he found a shaded area to stop and take a break in the grass. I saw he looked harmless so I called to him and he calmly came to me. I had my dog's leash in the car and was able to get him leashed. I was so relieved to see he had an ID tag on so I called the owner and she was thrilled to get the call. They had been driving around all morning searching for him! They came and got him and were so grateful. That same afternoon I ordered my pooch, Jonah, his ID tag! I just received it today! Thank you so much!


Image Diva she is such a lovely puppy, we are so happy to have her.

Ella Bobella

Image Ella Bobella My beautiful cat Ella loves to climb trees. I shouldn't let her out but sometimes she just bolts out the door. One night she didn't come home and we were sooo worried. A good person called the next day to say they had found her up their tree. Maybe she was stuck up there all night! But her pet ID tag got her home and that's the most important part!

Far away from home

I was dog sitting for my brother during a long vacation when much to my surprise the two cocker spaniels - Bo and Blaze - one blonde and one black - decided to take a little trip away of their own and ran away from home. My neighbor caught them and put them in his pen, however my brother and my father's number was listed on the ID. They lived in Tennessee, I lived in North Carolina. My neighbor couldn't believe the dogs had traveled that far away as they looked very healthy and cared for! I was so happy to have them back home, but if it hadn't been for their tags they wouldn't have returned. My brother was very glad too! Thanks for the ID tags.

Foxy comes home

It was a cold, snowy evening and Foxy our family dog (Min Pin) went out the door after a cat. She went so far, I cannot recall how far, but she was gone. I told my dad, and we went after her but we could not find her. But almost a week later she shows up at our door so thank u for the tags!

home again

My two Australian Shepherds, Cooper and Montana, were cruising down the side of a highway in an attempt to get home after a family move, when they were picked up by caring people. Thanks to the tags they came home safely. I have just ordered tags for my two baby goats, Billie and Bobby Jo to help keep them safe. If my chickens would wear them, they would have them too! Thank you.
