Proactive Measures

Microchip your pets!

The American Veterinary Medical Association reports that microchipped stray animals were returned to their owners at more than double the overall rate for all stray animals. 

For only $20, you can get your pet microchipped at Tails Humane Society. Appointments are preferred and can be scheduled by emailing info@tailshumanesociety.org or by calling 815-758-2457 ext 102

When the Unthinkable Happens, “Petco Love Lost” uses  Facial Recognition Technology to Help Find Missing Cats and Dogs.

According to industry statistics, sadly, one in every three pets will go missing in their lifetime. Petco Love Lost is a searchable national database that uses patented facial recognition technology to make finding lost pets quicker and easier. This simple-to-use tool will be easily accessible to participating animal organizations nationwide, as well as any pet parent or person who finds a lost pet. Uploaded photos of a missing dog or cat are immediately scanned to determine whether the lost pet is at a participating shelter or with a neighbor in the community.

We see firsthand how quickly a pet can go missing, whether they were curious, following a scent, wandered through an open gate or became scared during a storm. We work tirelessly to care for pets, whether they’re awaiting their forever home or lost and need help getting back to their families. There’s nothing more rewarding than reuniting families with their beloved pets and with Petco Love Lost, we’re confident it can lead to many more happy reunions.

If you’ve lost or found a pet, Petco Love Lost is here to help get them home. Visit petcolovelost.org
