Pet Loss Prevention

How can I prevent my pet from becoming lost?

  • Your pet should always wear a collar that has an attached ID tag, license, and rabies tag. Animals with tags are more likely to get home without ever needing to enter a shelter.

  • Always keep your dog on a leash when outside your home. 

  • Always supervise your animals while they're outdoors, even in a fenced-in yard. 

  • Get your pet microchipped.  Animal control facilities scan all incoming animals for a microchip, and that information is linked to your contact info. Make sure to update that information with the chip company should you move or change phone numbers. Low-cost microchips are available at the Wisconsin Humane Society’s regular vaccine clinics.
