Make Your Own QR Codes For Pets


People can often view their pets the same as their own children. This devotion has inspired whole industries of pet care. Technology has been brought into the mix as well. It’s not uncommon for people to have special tracking chips implanted into their animals in case their beloved pets should ever become lost.

Implanting a tracking chip may be to invasive of a procedure for some people’s taste though. An easier way to tag your animal might come through QR codes! It’s true, you would not be able to track you pet through a GPS signal if they were lost, but you would be able to provide a lot more information and an easy way to contact you if someone were to scan a properly set up QR Code on their collar.

Imagine people able to instantly make the good Samaritan that found your lost pet aware of any health issues that you pet might have. Most tags only have enough room for the pet’s name, the owner’s name and owner’s address. With a scannable QR code you would be able to have secondary contact information made available as well as the pet’s age and regular veterinarian. Or with a scan of the tag it could instantly have the person’s phone place a call to you or send you a text or email stating that your pet has been found.

Of course, if your animal is lost without their collar, this idea would not work as well as a tracking chip. But for those where the chip is not an option, for whatever reason, a QR Code on your pet’s tag might help you recover your pet quickly and safely.
