A cat with an identification tag on its collar at OKC Animal Welfare

It's critically important to have permanent identification for your pet.

Microchip your pet and keep the contact information for the chip current. Your pet should always wear a collar with an identification tag. Pets from the OKC Animal Shelter also have identifying tattoos on their abdomen.

You can stop by the OKC Animal Shelter any time for a free identification tag for your pet. All pets adopted from the OKC Animal Shelter receive free identification tags.

You can also contact The Bella Foundation, the Central Oklahoma Humane Society and Best Friends of Pets for information about their free or low-cost identification and microchip service programs.
