Be sure to tag
your cats and dogs!

Hundreds of stray dogs are impounded every year in Guelph. Providing your dog with proper identification significantly increases the likelihood that your dog will get home promptly in the event that he strays or becomes lost.

Did you know that only 13% of cats that enter the shelter are returned to their owner? Lack of identification is a big reason for this.
