Unfortunately the pet ID industry is one that is often abused. Use of technology for pet recovery runs from helpful but ineffective (microchips) to ridiculous (internet tags).
The Guardian has been the most effective lost and stolen pet recovery program since 1991.
A Collar Tag That Can Save Your Pet's Life
In 2009 we had a 99.85% recovery rate!
Be sure not to confuse this program with any other collar tag, there are a lot of imitators. If it's not from the American Pet Association, your pet does not have the most reliable and effective protection available.
No microchip, tattoo or tag program is
as effective as the Guardian.
Chances are if your pet is lost or injured, you are not home. Your pet faces many potential dangers, but "The Guardian" can help protect your pet! This unique collar tag with APA's 24 Hour Lost Pet Hotline is linked to your day, night and emergency contacts. And even if you can not be contacted, the American Pet Association will make emergency medical, boarding, and transportation arrangements for your pet.
More importantly, APA's exclusive Active Recovery Program can find your pet if it loses its collar, or is found by a dishonest person that wants to keep your pet!
Walking in the street is only one of the many dangers your pet faces while running free.
Others include (but are not limited to):
High Quality and Effective
It may not seem important, but all of the Guardian collar tags are solid stainless steel. These tags can last a lifetime without loosing their ability to be clearly read. Aluminum, brass and plastic tags have very short life spans; and you may not even notice they are not readable until it is too late.
Your Lost Pet Package includes:
Always shipped FedEx, overnight*
when your pet is lost!
There are many programs that are not as effective as people widely think, like microchips, but there are others that are dangerous, like the "pet scope" that required to put your eye directly on it to read the info (think about placing your face up to a strange dogs neck!).
Aluminum and brass tags are OK for rabies tags that are replaced once a year, but not for ID of your pet. Plastic and rubber tags should never be used as they can wear our so quickly and can be a choking hazard.
Do not place a collar tag
on your pet with its name, your
phone number or any
personal information on it.
Don’t let your personal information run free.
Our pets can, and do, get out. There are steps we can take to help protect them and get them home safely.
Having a tag with your home phone number and the pet’s name is no longer a way to protect your pet. It can in fact open you up to identity theft, scams and burglary. And statistically, if the finder of your pet knows your pets name, there is a 200% higher chance they will decide to keep the pet rather than contact the owner!
Times change and we need to change with them, especially when it is as important as your personal security and your pet’s well being.
Only one tag provides 100% confidentiality of your
Only one ID program does not give your personal information to the finder of your pet.
Only one Pet ID & Recovery Program offers active recovery and is the most effective available.
