Millions of cats and dogs are lost each year in the United States. What's heartbreaking is that only 10-30 percent of lost dogs and only 5 percent of lost cats are reunited with their families because they had proper identification -- either a ID tag or a microchip.
ID tags for collars can be found at nearly all the pet stores in Gillette, or your vet's office. And, microchipping can be done at your vet's office, or during a City of Gillette/Campbell County Animal Shelter microchipping clinic.
And you should also license your pet with the Animal Shelter. The City of Gillette Licensing Fees are:
- Unsterilized animals: $10
- Sterilized animals (spayed or neutered): $3
So, please (please) take the time to get proper identification for your pet.
