RandyMy Jack Russell/Rat Terrier "TAZ" ran away yesterday. He has only done this once before in 5 years and then only went as far as a neighbors, so it would have been easy to justify not having him tagged. Within a half an hour someone who lives quite away 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.
After Surgery ScareI 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 NightmareMy 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!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 TreatMy 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 BoysThese 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 ClownAmber is the new girl. Since we have three chihuahuas now we want all of them to be safe. Here she is wearing her new tag. She is three months old and we hope to have her for a long time.
Apache is the ManAfter 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.
