About Join The Pack
- Join the Pack (JTP) is a countywide campaign to create Responsible Pet Owners.
- JTP is sponsored by Animal Shelter Adoption Partners, a local Nonprofit, whose goal is to end unnecessary euthanasia at the SLO County pound (Animal Services).
- Fewer animals coming to the shelter would mean no deaths caused by overcrowding and better care of the truly homeless animals.
- In the past 3 years, 2,514 pets were returned to their owners after being brought to the pound as strays.
- Strays wearing visible ID (a phone number on a collar counts) don't come to the shelter - they get back home. No fines. No risk of euthanasia.
- Pets without ID come into Animal Services, and another animal may be euthanized to make room.
- If you don't redeem your pet within the 5 day legal hold time, it can be killed!
- A simple ID tag is the best pet life insurance policy.
OUR MOTTO IS: If You Love ‘em, Tag ‘em!
It's the responsible thing to do.
Be a Responsible Pet Owner.
Put a visible ID on your Pet. Spay or Neuter.
Adopt from the Shelter. Never abandon your pet.
