Residing in NY, in-between New Rochelle and NYC all of us in the area have been dealing w/new life style restrictions. My dogs have worn boomerang tags w/ emergency info in the past. but that's great for when they get loose.My current pup has a super sensitive neck and can't wear the flat collar tag!!! our standard ID has my # and DH# on it.  in these strange times my friend, who lives in mid-town manhattan, realized that we need apparent ICE instructions for the dogs!

She lives in a large apartment building- management has ICE contacts(including me) and permission for retrieval of her dogs if she falls ill.

I do not lock my android phone- so I have added ICE DOG CONTACT after 3 names in my phone book. I also have ICE for DOGS on the fridge.

What have you done? or are planning on doing? have you contacted friends?

Another reality of living w/ COVID-19. yeah my mom's independent living facility has been on lock down for 4 weeks(kudos to them pre- NYS instructions)and residents have been eating in their rooms- for over 2 weeks! they still ended up w/ 3 cases!

stay healthy, stay safe. off to the woods for our sanity.

Most phones have the facility to be able to access and phone your ICE contacts and medications even though the phone is locked.  Or take a picture of your ICE details and use it as your lock screen.

Andrea, I like the idea of having ICE contact info for the dogs. I take pictures of each dogs' vet papers showing they are up to date on vaccinations.

I am just concerned about having someone contacted to pick her up! It has not hit the rest of the country but currently NY is 3xs the highest # of cases in the country. If one of us gets sick our ice contact will be informed . Shots are the least of my concerns.

We have the "If I Am Sick Or  Injured" cards in our wallets and the associated keytags on our key rings.  The card indicates that my pets are alone and gives space to write in two emergency contacts with a Sharpie.   We bought  the cards at Dewey.  Several of the vendors had them.  

Our cards are similar to but not exactly like this style - https://www.amazon.com/DuraPaws-Emergency-Plastic-Contact-Writable/dp/B07DLLXJ5Z

There's always a tattoo. :lol 

I'm never without my wallet so the card works well for us.  We also have signed documents from other greyhound owners authorizing us to pick up their dogs in an emergency and have the house keys to accomplish that.  We are the POC on their emergency notification card also.

I wear Road id when running.  They can be made with any info.  Perhaps have something like:. My dogs are home alone please call :. Xxxx  at 555-1212 to retrieve them. 

Might this work?

i guess i need to be retrained- the tattoo idea is most likely best for me- i leave the house- and just leave it! now that we are on lock down- who needs a wallet? i also stopped carrying it a while ago to refrain from spending money. 

this must be NY paranoia since things are pretty grim around here.
