Today, AHA reminds us to make every day “Tag Day”:

Without a voice, and without a tag, he may never find his way home.

April 7, 2007, kicks off American Humane’s “Every Day is Tag Day.”

American Humane Association - Every Day is Tag Day

The American Humane Association celebrates every day as Tag Day to encourage all pet owners to tag or microchip their companion animals.

According to a study by the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy, about 1 million dogs and 584,000 cats are taken into animal shelters as strays each year. Sadly, only about 15 percent of those dogs and 2 percent of the cats are reunited with their owners. Cats are less likely to find their way home partly because they are less likely to be given tags by their owners.

By observing Every Day is Tag Day, we can help improve these statistics. Every Day is Tag Day unites thousands of individuals, plus professionals in local shelters, veterinary clinics, animal care and control agencies, and other humane agencies in the common goal of educating pet owners about the benefits of tagging their companion animals.
