There is a reason this July dog holiday observance falls right before Independence Day, the biggest day of the year for pets to go missing. Having up-to-date ID can make all the difference on whether a pet finds his way back home. Update the tag information on your pup’s collar, make sure it’s not loose, and update your information with his microchip company. Dog not microchipped? Time to make it happen. Let’s make sure all lost pets find their way home.
