Cat Identification Tags

Cat identification tags are a way to protect your cat if they go missing. Cats with identification tags are much more likely to be reunited with their owners.

The City of Red Deer does not currently license cats, it is however recommended that cats wear ID tags so owners can easily be identified.‌

Where can I purchase a Cat Identification Tag?

Cat ID tags can be purchased at most major pet stores.
