After you read my review, be sure to enter my first giveaway, below!

Look below for the Good Stuff vs. the Not-So-Good Stuff…

FurCode ID Pet Tag


Review & Giveaway: FurCode ID Pet Tag
Know what you hear when I’m around? Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle!
See this post for my Hole Diggers Anonymous tag review.

I don’t mind having all my tags — I have a tag for my rabies license, a tag with my microchip number, a tag with my name and phone number, and a tag just for fun (’cause uh, well… I’m a digger). I’m kinda used to all my tags though, and my family knows exactly where I am when they hear my jiggling.

There are many of you who would LOVE to get rid of a few of your doggie’s tags. But how can you do that, and still keep all your doggie’s important information on them at all times… in case they get lost?

I’ll tell you how! There’s this really amazing product that can include all of your doggie’s or kittie’s important information on one little circular tag! How can one tiny tag carry so much information, you ask? Well, each tag links to your pet’s own personal profile, that can be accessed by anyone with a smart phone and/or access to the Internet.

Wanna hear more about it? I knew you would!

This awesome tag is called a FurCode ID Pet Tag, and it’s really kinda cool.


Review & Giveaway: FurCode ID Pet Tag
The FurCode ID Pet Tag is just about the same size as other tags.
They come in 2 sizes: 1″ and 1¼″, for both kitties & doggies.

Review & Giveaway: FurCode ID Pet Tag
Each FurCode is made out of laser-etched aluminum,
making them lightweight, waterproof and nearly indestructible.

Each tag has a unique code on them, and a unique URL, that link to your pet’s personal online profile. You can keep your pet’s information updated as often as you want, and you can make any or all information public or keep some private, just for you to see.

See below for details on what information can be listed.

Smartphone technology
If your doggie or kitty is lost and someone
finds them, the person who locates them can easily
find out who their family is, at any time of the
day or night, without having to take them to a shelter.

Review & Giveaway: FurCode ID Pet Tag
The QR code can easily be read by any smartphone.

If the person who finds your pet happens to have a smart phone, they can immediately scan the QR code on your doggie or kitty’s FurCode with their smartphone’s QR code reader.

But what if that person doesn’t have a QR reader? No worries! QR apps are free and can be downloaded from the app store on any smartphone. Your pet’s profile will display only the information you allow the public to see, and you can update it any time. Your pet can immediately be taken home!

If the person who finds your pet has access to the Internet, all they need to do is enter your doggie or kitty’s tag ID (located on one side of the tag) in a web browser. It will immediately display your pet’s online profile page.

This is what your doggie or kitty’s online profile
will look like. This is mine — see my picture?

What kind of information is contained in your pet’s online profile? I’ll tell ya! Keep in mind that you can make any or all of the following information public, or keep most of it private. Either way, you will always have a current record of your pet’s information (provided you keep it updated).

Review & Giveaway: FurCode ID Pet Tag
So how does my FurCode ID Pet Tag look?
It does look pretty nice, doesn’t it? ;)

The Good Stuff:

  • I think the best thing about this tag, is that you only need ONE. Now that you’ll be up-to-date with technology, you’ll be able to include so much more information with this one tag, than you’d be able to with multiple tags.
  • They’re made out of laser etched aluminum — very durable.
  • Your doggie or kitty’s online Pet Profile is FREE, and it’s accessible 24/7. Did I mention it was FREE? There are no hidden monthly or annual fees or charges.
  • If your pet has any special needs, you can make that information public. If your pet goes missing and someone finds him/her, they will know immediately what those needs are.
  • Online pet profiles are really easy-to-update, and your changes are visible immediately!
  • FurCodes, which link to your pet’s online profile, can link directly to your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts. Pawsome!
  • Tags are now available in six colors (as of this post): black, blue, red, pink, green and purple!
  • Tags now come with a silencer/edge protector. Use them if you want your doggie or kitty to walk around in stealth mode.
  • There’s a lifetime guarantee! If your FurCode ID Pet Tag is ever damaged, they will send you a new one! How great is that?
  • They offer discounts if you order multiple tags.
  • Shipping is FREE!

The Not-So-Good Stuff: Don’t worry, it’s not that bad!

  • There is no identifying information on the tag, so if your pet is found by someone who does not have a smart phone or cannot access the Internet immediately, there is no way for them to know how to contact their family (unless your pet is wearing a second personalized tag).
  • There are no names on the tag, so if someone finds your doggie or kitty, how will they know what to call them? *sniff* (See my conclusion below for an idea.)
  • They come in just one shape (at least right now). Maybe one day they’ll come up with some others, like a bone shape, a doggie or kitty head shape… something like that. ;)
  • Even though the tags come in all those colors, some people may think that they’re not cute, playful, or funny… you get the idea. This isn’t a big deal though. Your doggie or kitty could always wear two tags — one being the FurCode and another one just for fun! And if you use the silencer/edge protector, you’ll never know that your doggie or kitty is wearing more than one tag! Ha!

My conclusion?

I think the idea of the FurCode ID Pet Tag is a GREAT one! Lots and lots of people today have a smartphone, or know someone who does, and even more people have access to the Internet. I may be a bit old-fashioned, but I still like to have a tag with my name on it — I’m proud of my name! Maybe personalizing each tag with your doggie or kitty’s name, is something that the people at FurCode could offer one day..? *cough*


Buy it!

As I said above, I think this is a very smart idea. I believe in it so much, that I’ve included my affiliate code throughout this post.
