Photo Identification Badges for Volunteers and Pets:
Pets for Life will provide a Photo ID for each human volunteer and each animal volunteer. Just email us a .jpg photo file of you and your pet. If you prefer, send us a photo using regular mail. We will make the photo identification badges and mail them to you. Each badge is laminated and comes with a lanyard for the human and a collar clip for the pet. There is no charge for this service through the Pets for Life office. If you would prefer a different style of photo identification badge for you and your pet, check out K9Tag at www.k9tag.com/petsforlife. Feel free to purchase a photo identification badge at this site designated for Pets for Life. Please be sure and wear your photo badge on each Pets for Life visit. This not only identifies you as a volunteer, but also makes others aware of our organization and the service we provide.
Pets for Life Friendship Cards: (optional)
Many adults and children who are able to interact with our pets, enjoy receiving a "friendship card." These are the size of a regular business card with the pet photo on the front and information about Pets for Life on the reverse side. If you would like some "friendship cards" to share, just email us a .jpg file with a photo of your pet. If you prefer, send us a photo using the regular mail. We will print the cards and mail them to you. There is no charge for this service through the Pets for Life office.
If you would prefer a different type of "friendship card" you may wish to contact Amy Wurst, a Pets for Life volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org. These cards are printed on heavy card stock and measure 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches. On the front is a photo of your pet while on the reverse side of the card, you are able to list more detailed information about your pet as: breed, birthday, likes, tricks, and favorite treats. The reverse side of the card also contains information about Pets for Life. Feel free to contact Amy to discuss specific information about purchasing these "friendship cards."
Canine Apparel: Bandanas and/or Vests (optional)
Bandanas are always in style! Check out the Pets for Life Canine Bandana being modeled by our very own Marta. This bandana is in Pets for Life green and when opened and lying flat measures a 21 inch square. When folded on the diagonal, it measures approximately 30 inches and reveals our Pets for Life logo in the corner. Your furry friend will look GREAT on visits wearing one of these bandanas! They are only $4.00. So call the office, or better yet, just email Pets for Life and we will send you one.
You can order a vest for your dog from Pup'parel. These vests are made especially for Pets for Life volunteers and their pets. The vest has one pocket on the dog's right side, a patch sewn on the dogs left side that says "Therapy Dog" and "Pets for Life" is embroidered on the back in yellow-gold thread that matches the edge of the patch. Each vest can be personalized to include the pet's name. If you choose to have your pet's name embroidered on your vest, Pup'parel will do the stitching in the same color and type-style as the "Pets for Life" text. If you would like a different color, just let them know by putting a note in the "comments" box.
Go to pupparel.com and click on "Logowear" Scroll down to the Pets for Life section. You can view a sample of the vest, a sizing chart, and order information. The code you will need is PFL. If you have any questions, or concerns, feel free to contact Pup'parel. They will be glad to help you. Be sure and tell them you are a Pets for Life Volunteer.
