Essential Pet Protection

It's not just a tag. It's a lifeline.

An easily identifiable emergency tag that connects anyone who finds your pet to help when you can’t be reached or answer your phone. Unlike regular pet tags where people call you, our team will always answer.
The Pet Emergency Tags offer you the peace of mind of a quality metal tag with your pet’s unique ID number and a toll free number that connects to a trained professional who will help reunite you with your pet.

The Pet Emergency Tag System (PETS) provides essential pet protection - protection that goes beyond an ID tag and microchip. A tag and chip are a good start. But your pet deserves more and the PETS does more. 

If your pet is ever lost or needs immediate help and you can't be reached right away, the PETS is your pet's 24/7 lifeline:   

  • If you're in a car accident with your pet 

  • If there's a disaster and your phone doesn't work

  • If there's any reason you can't or don't answer your phone 

Using the instructions you enter in your pet's online profile, we'll put your customized pet emergency plan into action immediately, including: your backup emergency contacts, vet info and any special needs your pet may have. Covers U.S. and Canada.

Peace of mind guaranteed. Or your money back. Really.

A standard pet ID tag and microchip are not required, but we highly recommend both.

Total Pet Protection



The phone number on the Pet Emergency Tag connects to a 24/7 live helpline that works like "911" for your pet in the U.S. and Canada.  

One easy call connects to our U.S.-based staff. We'll use the vital information you entered when you registered your pet's Pet Emergency Tag to get them the help they need immediately.

The Pet Emergency Tag offers immediate help when your pet is in need with live operators who are trained in emergency care and pet safety. No chip to scan, no voicemail to leave - we always answer 24/7.

The Pet Emergency Tag works in ways an ID tag and microchip don't. And it's not just for lost pets. Think of it as a "911" system for your pet that works in any emergency. Add it for your pet's total protection.


We highly recommend a chip as a backup in case your pet loses their collar or tag. But a chip is not a good primary ID because it's not visible or easy to use.

A chip requires a stranger to be willing and able to drive your pet to a vet or shelter to be scanned. What if it's after hours or a holiday? With the Pet Emergency Tag, help is always just one easy phone call away.

A microchip is a vital tool when paired with the speed and ease of use of the Pet Emergency Tag

A microchip is a good backup tool in case your pet needs help and their ID tag or collar comes off. But it's not a fast or easy way to help your pet because it's not visible and must be scanned.


We highly recommend an ID tag with your phone number. It's the fastest way to reach you if your pet needs help.

Think of the Pet Emergency Tag as your pet's 24/7 safety net if you can't or don't answer your phone. We always answer. And we'll stay on the phone with the caller until we can reach you or one of your backup contacts.

A standard ID tag is a good start when paired with the Pet Emergency Tag

A standard ID tag is a good start. It's the first thing someone will look for if your pet needs help. The Pet Emergency Tag is your pet's 24/7 lifeline if you can't or don't answer your phone.

A high quality, satisfaction guaranteed metal tag that is instantly recognizable as an emergency tag with an easy to read toll-free number and a unique ID that links to your pet’s backup contacts, vet information and any special needs or instructions you provide.

It's like 911 for your pet.
