Hill AFB Family Resources Pets

Use these steps to protect your pet from being lost during your move.

  • Keep a collar with an ID tag on your pet at all times with your current phone number on it.
  • Microchip your pets, especially if they are good at slipping their collars. It’s important to keep your contact information up to date so the chip can reconnect your pet to you. All animal shelters and vet clinics can scan for microchips.
  • Have a current license on your dog. It is the ID given to an animal by a city or county and can be another way your dog can be restored to you.
  • Keep cats indoors; it’s much safer for them. Cats are domestic animals and don’t need to be outside where there are coyotes and owls, among other predators. Give cats a post to scratch on, a window to perch in and plenty of toys, and they will love the great indoors.

Your pet faces many new dangers in Utah’s wild spaces, including coyotes or cougars, which may view your pet as a threat or prey. Keep your dog on a short leash in wild areas, taking care to avoid moose, porcupines, mule deer, raccoons and rattlesnakes. Free-roaming house cats can attract coyotes into a neighborhood and are often at risk of being preyed upon by larger predators.
