When a licensed veterinarian vaccinates your pet against rabies, a license tag to affix to your pet’s collar or harness will be issued. This tag not only says your pet was vaccinated, but your pet is registered. The tag number and registration makes it possible for Animal Control to contact you in case your pet is lost.
You may also want to include an additional identification tag on your pet’s collar or harness. The tag can include your pet’s name, owner’s name, address, and phone number. Usually, if someone finds a stray animal they will check for an identification tag and call the owner first, instead of calling Animal Control. This can help make the process of getting your lost pet returned faster.
St. Peters Animal Control Pet ID Program
St. Peters Animal Control offers a Pet ID Program that allows you to purchase a digital pet ID tag for just $5 per tag. The digital pet ID tag helps good Samaritans immediately identify and return lost pets. Each tag is equipped with a unique QR code, web address and traditional toll-free phone number used to immediately and safely access a pet’s encrypted, critical data, including multiple emergency contact phone numbers, medications, license and rabies tag information, microchip number, vaccinations, pet medical insurance status and more. To purchase the tag and learn more, visit St. Peters Animal Control at City Hall, One St. Peters Centre Blvd.
An effective way to identify your pet is with a microchip. Most veterinarians and the St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center offer microchipping.
Microchipping involves inserting a small, non-toxic computer chip under the skin of the animal. The device is not powered, but passively responds to a scan with a special scanner by sending an echo that displays a number on the scanner. The chip is registered through our facility to the animal's owner.
You may also want to include an additional identification tag on your pet’s collar or harness. The tag can include your pet’s name, owner’s name, address, and phone number. Usually, if someone finds a stray animal they will check for an identification tag and call the owner first, instead of calling Animal Control. This can help make getting your lost pet to you faster.
Be sure to update any changes to your address and/or phone number as they occur.
