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.
