About

The Collar ID is a custom pet identification tag that allows you to easily interchange between your pet's favorite collars while being completely noise free.  Durable material and the double-back velcro design ensures that the Collar ID will remain on your pet's collar during whatever adventure you emBark on.  Collar ID is manufactured in Portland, Oregon.

The Collar ID allows you change collars or harness frequently and easily, while always being noise free and safe!  

Why Collar ID?

  • EASY - Can be easily attached and removed.
  • CONVENIENT - an inner "slocket" that holds other tags
  • FASHION FLEXIBLE - Interchangeable between collars, great for the furry fashionistas who like variety in their Collar wardrobe
  • SECURE - Durable material ensures cuff will not fall off 
  • SAFE - No dangling tags to get stuck in kennels 
  • PET FRIENDLY - You can leave it on at night because there is no noise or jingle 

Collar ID keeps your loved ones safe

571 pets will be lost every hour and only 22% of those dogs and 2% of cats will reunite with their families.  The fear of this happening to me or to you was the reason I knew I had to create something that made it easy and affordable for all pets to wear collars with noise-free identification.  Our pets count on us to make sure they don't become a statistic!

What is keeping you from having your pet wear ID all the time?

When identification and licensing tags jingle on your pets' collars, it can be noisy and annoying.  However before Collar ID, removing these noisy collars left your pets without pet ID in the event they were separated from you.  More pets come into shelters every day without collars!  Pet owners remove the collars at home, because the noise is so annoying!

Additionally, we all like to change our pets' collars to celebrate our favorite sports teams and holidays, and to keep up with the latest fashion trends. Most silent pet tags permanently affix to your pet's collar and regular tags are difficult to take on and off.  Small pet ID tags are also tedious to remove and hard for many people with arthritis.

Collar ID makes it easy to ID your pet even when you change collars.

Collar ID is the safe choice for your pets.

Veterinarians report that the small, round tags on collars frequently get caught between the metal openings on crates and can be a major choking hazard to your pets.  Collar ID is lightweight and durable and won't get caught on other objects!  

Collar ID will save you money.  Small tags fall off or get caught on things and torn off, which means to keep your dog or cat safe and identified, you have to continually replace the small tags.  Collar ID velcros on to your pet's collar and stays on until you take it off.  

Olive's family is happy they don't have to worry about choking hazards anymore!

Collar ID comes in 4 sizes and 6 colors.  Black Collar ID, Hot Pink Collar ID Royal Blue Collar ID, Neon Orange Collar ID, Forest Green Collar ID and Camouflage Collar ID.

Sizing:  How to choose a size of Collar ID to fit your pet’s collar:

Collar Width      Collar ID Size

    3/8"                   Small

    5/8"                   Medium

    1"                      Large

    1 3/8"                Extra Large 

We are asking for the $15,000 pledge to be able to purchase the laser engraver to create the custom tabs that go on each Collar ID.  We want to make sure we deliver the highest quality ID tag that matches the durability of our collar cuff.  Since the Collar ID does not fall off or get caught on other objects, we want to deliver the highest quality materials for a lifetime purchase.  We also want to use the funds to have materials to make samples for shelters and other organizations that help rescue pets without any identification.  We want to make sure these pets whether they are reunited with their family or place for adoption, never are unidentified again!

Risks and challenges

As with any new business, we feel like we have prepared for the inevitable issues that may arise. The one area of production we can't predict is the color and sizes that people will order during the Kickstarter campaign.

We have selected local partners that we feel are also equipped to make changes or move quickly depending on order quantities in each size and color.
