Loss Prevention

​Broward County Animal Care is proud to offer two powerful tools to help protect and identify your dog or cat:

1. Broward County Rabies Registration Tag


A current Rabies Registration Tag on a secure collar serves three important purposes: 

  • The tag is a visible form of identification. It lets residents know that your pet belongs to someone.
  • The license number on your pet’s tag leads back to your contact information in our database. This way, you can be contacted if your pet is found by us or a fellow resident.
  • Your pet will qualify for a “Free Ride Home” if he becomes lost from home for the first time and is wearing a current Broward County Rabies Registration tag when he is found.  The impound fees and citations will be waived for your pet. 
 

2. Microchips​


Broward County Animal Care has partnered with Smart Tag for our microchip services. All pets adopted through Broward County Animal Care are microchipped with a Smart Tag chip.

A microchip is a permanent form of identification. A small chip (about the size of a grain of rice) is inserted in between the shoulder blades of your dog or cat. If your pet becomes lost from home, a shelter or veterinary office can scan the pet to locate the microchip number.

The key to protecting your pet is to register the chip number. The Smart Tag registry offers a 24/7, online service that allows you to register ANY BRAND of microchip for FREE.

Your pet will qualify for a “Free Ride Home” if he becomes lost from home for the first time and has a microchip with current registration information when he is found.  The impound fees and citations will be waived for your pet.

Does your pet need a microchip? Microchips, with FREE registration, are available for sale at our Pet Care Clinic.
