Dog Travel Network Joins the Effort to ID Pets

/24-7 / -- National Pet ID Week is underway and in an effort to return missing pets, Dog Travel Network ( is giving away the IDTAG, a Revolutionary Pet Tag, to members of the Dog Travel Network Community. One tag will be given away each day of National Pet ID Week and the winners will be drawn at random. The Dog Travel Network Community is free and fun to join.

Millions of companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of these, only two percent of cats and 15-20% of dogs are reunited with their owners. For this reason, the American Humane Association (AHA) has designated Saturday, April 5, 2003 as Tag Day. National Pet ID Week is April 20-26.

"The Dog Travel Network is based on the love of dog, the last thing we would want is for somebody to lose their pet needlessly, due to lack of identification." said Courtney King, Director of Public Relations, Dog Travel Network. "The IDTAG ( is a really great product that is worn like a regular identification. The difference is, IDTAG supplies an instant alert to shelters & lost-pet websites, allows you to update your pet and contact info online in Real Time, creates lost-pet posters for your use and offers a 24/7 live toll-free hotline. We feel this is a really great product so that is why we are giving them away and helping to raise awareness of the importance to ID your pet."

The Dog Travel Network is a web-based travel resource for folks planning their next dog friendly vacation or just a day out to the best dog-friendly local park or restaurant. The Dog Travel Network also hosts the Dog Travel Channel, the first of its kind with videos of dog friendly places, including parks, beaches, hotels, resorts, getaways and anything dog friendly. The Dog Travel Channel ( is a dog friendly video production service that offers custom videos for businesses in the pet industry.

The Dog Travel Network highly recommends the use of identifications tags and invites all dog enthusiasts to join the community for free, add some pictures, post some videos and show the world your favorite four-legged friend. One IDTAG will be given away to a community member each day this week, ending on April 26.
