For Pet Owners
Collar ID Tags
AKC Companion Animal Recovery collar ID tags are automatically provided with every enrollment. Our collar tags provide quick and easy access to dedicated recovery experts via our 24/7 service. Unlike a standard pet tag with one phone number, your privacy is protected while AKC CAR provides the means to contact you via the various ways you may be reached: phone, email, and even text messaging. We can also reach out to any additional contact names that you provide, just in case you cannot be reached. Order Replacement Collar Tags.
Reflective Dog Collars
When enrolled with AKC Companion Animal Recovery, you can order our highly-reflective, personalized dog collars. These are perfect for dogs that spend a lot of time outside–– especially at night, or tend to chew their tags, or have collar tags that are constantly "clanking". Enrollment in CAR is required to order this product. Order Reflective Dog Collars.
Lost Pet Alert
Lost pet alerts are the most proactive way to notify a virtual community of pet lovers in your area to be on the lookout for your lost or stolen pet. This service complements your pet's microchip enrollment by broadcasting your lost pet's information to animal shelters, veterinarians and pet lovers in your immediate area interested in helping with your pet's safe return home. With the AKC CAR Lost Pet Alert you also have access to an online Lost Pet Alert Poster Application to create a custom lost pet poster. Lost Pet Alert Service
