If you have just moved and have not yet tagged your dog, you can write their name with a
Black Sharpie Marker, directly onto the inside collar surface. Be sure to add your phone number. 
Additionally, we highly recommend micro-chipping your pets and attaching proper tag I.D. and collars.


If you find a cat with a clipped ear it is likely a feral cat who has already been spayed or neutered.
These are known as "community cats".  Feral cats are cats who are too poorly socialized to be placed as typical pets however, animal lovers understand our community cats deserve a happy and peaceful life just like other
wild and homeless creatures in our communities. Be kind and get involved in our
(TNR) Trap-Neuter-Release Program if you can.
