New Life and New SuperPetTag for Fiona!


Through our ShelterAngel charity program, we send free Dynotag SuperPetTags to good people who adopt from pet shelters. All we ask for is the story for the adoption and a couple photos. We find this recent exchange about “Fiona” particularly heartwarming:

I’ve always been a cat person, but sadly, my ex-husband took our cats in the divorce, and my new boyfriend is allergic. So I started Googling “cat-like dogs” and one of the breeds that came up was basenji. The central coast of California, where I relocated to be near my boyfriend, is not prime basenji territory; it would be a long drive to LA or beyond to find one to adopt. I checked several local shelters, looking for a dog that would meet the criteria set by me and my reluctant landlady: adult, mellow, quiet, and friendly with other dogs since my workplace welcomes canines.

At the third shelter, I saw a 16-pound tan dog called Harmony. They said she was a chihuahua mix, about 4 years old. I was far from sure, but thought she might be the one, so I called my boyfriend to meet her. He agreed, and I filled out the paperwork to take her home. We renamed her Fiona, and have since learned a few things about her: she’s part basenji (and probably dachshund, terrier and something else), she almost never barks (only four times in two months), she’d never seen stairs before, and she’s really about 6 years old. She’s also become very devoted to me, which is endearing and also a little scary. I’m glad she’s part of my life.

Fiona looks so happy and content – we are glad you found each other – and are happy we could be a part of this beautiful story…

Did you adopt a pet from a shelter? Do you know someone who has or is thinking about it?  Let them know about our ShelterAngel charity program so we can send them a FREE Super Pet Tag also.

Another Pup Gets a Shelter Angel Tag!

We are always happy to send our complimentary Pet Tags to new parents of pets adopted from shelters.

We found this story particularly inspiring  as we enter Spring, a busy adoption season…

Remember to remind your friends about when they adopt a pet from a shelter – we’ll be happy to send them a complimentary Dynotag Super Pet Tag with our thanks for accepting a pet in need into their home…

Friends at Dynotag:

I recently was browsing the Petfinder website. After seeing many of the familiar dogs, a brand-new face appeared.

As I clicked on this new dog, “Purity”, I was saddened to read of how she had been abandoned and nearly starved to start. I then was inspired to read about her recovery and her bouncing back to health. Despite someone’s past awful neglect, this young lady was friendly, loving and making friends everywhere she went. I then saw the video of her and discovered she was being fostered near me. I had to meet her.

On the sunniest day so far this spring, my wife and I met this sweet little pup and could only characterize her bright, friendly personality as “Sunny”. We were instantly smitten and committed to adoption. She comes home with us tomorrow. She’ll forever forward carry the name she inspired as “Sunny Daze”

I can hardly wait…

Thank you,

Matt West
