While traveling out of town for business my Lab Ohtai became lost while in the care of a family friend. Thankfully he was found and turned into our local Animal shelter who in turn contacted me with the good news. I caught the next flight home and headed straight to the shelter from the airport. In my haste to pick up my sweet baby I forgot the necessary paperwork the shelter requires before releasing any pet back to their owner. One of the shelter clerks noticed the VPI tag on my pets collar and told me that if she could get VPI to verify some information they would be more than happy to release my pet. After a quick phone call to VPI Ohtai and I were soon reunited and I have VPI and their pet tags to thank. My pets never leave home without them and the security I feel having this service is priceless.
