Web Hosting and Web Design firm based in New York Helps Pets
New York, New York - Red Scooter Dog (www.RedScooterDog.com), a New York based Web Hosting and Marketing Consultancy announced on Monday that National Pet ID Week is April 18-24, 2009.
Millions of companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of these, only two percent of cats and 15-20% of dogs are reunited with their owners. For this reason, the American Humane Association (AHA) has designated Saturday, April 5, 2003 as Tag Day. National Pet ID Week is April 20-26.
Red Scooter Dog donates a portion of its annual profits to charities involved in the rescue and housing of dogs that have been abandoned at pet shelters which euthanize dogs. These dog rescue charities move the best dogs to no-kill shelters to be housed until an adoptee is located. These charities provide a range of ID solutions for new pet owners.
“Our logo is a cross with a paw print because we see our primary social responsibility as a Red Cross for Dogs. When you do business with Red Scooter Dog you help save a dog’s life” says managing director of Red Scooter Dog, Mark Lynn.
Red Scooter Dog reminds pet owners that Collars and Identification (ID) Tags should include, Pet’s name, Owner’s name and address, Telephone numbers (day and evening) ,Medical problem requiring medication, Veterinarian’s name and number, Current Rabies vaccination information, Reward offer should pet become lost.
Microchipping involves implanting a tiny capsule under the pet’s skin, in mammals, usually between the shoulder blades. Microchips can be used on dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, and other companion pets. The tiny chip is about the size of a grain of rice.
The owner then sends the information to a registering agency along with current contact and alternate contact information in the event the pet becomes lost.
When a pet is found, any agency with a scanner, including many animal care and control agencies, veterinary clinics, and research labs, can quickly identify a code that links the animal to its owner through a national database.
Tattooing is a permanent ID system that involves marking a code on the skin of the pet. A tattoo is placed in the pet’s ear, abdomen, or on the inside of the pet’s thigh.
The finder of the lost pet calls a national database that uses the code to obtain the owner’s current address and phone number. Each registry has its own coding system. This is an invaluable form of identification should a pet be stolen for research, since laboratories will instantly know the animal is not abandoned but a beloved pet.
To look for a tattoo on the abdomen or thigh, lay the dog on her side. One person may stroke and calm the dog while the other gently lifts the dog’s hind leg to examine the belly and thigh.
