FREE Rescue Alert Sticker for your Home

Henri Higginbottoms(Update: we just added some DIY TRULY FREE stickers. Scroll down to the end of this post to download them.)
I just read about this interesting twist on those Rescue Alert stickers you place on the window of your home telling rescue personnel how many cats and/or dogs are in your house. PetPlan, a pet insurance company, had developed a personalized version that allows you to add a photo of your pet(s) — up to three — from either a webcam or digital photo. You personalize it, print it and put in a window or on your front door. It tells firemen how many pets you have, what they look like and what to call them. So, hopefully, everyone makes it out unharmed. Here’s a link to their Custom Rescue Alert Sticker Maker.

For a limited time, IHeartDogs is offering a FREE 2 pack of stickers (you pay shipping).

The stickers are a nice idea. But I have to chuckle… to cover all my pets I would have to print a BUNCH of stickers. That would likely fill the whole front door or a whole window. I guess that would catch the attention of anyone entering in an emergency. Fortunately, when I am away from home, most of the dogs are outside. That would cut down on how many stickers I would need, I suppose.

On another note, I read somewhere that you should put stickers on multiple windows in the event rescue personnel do not access your house from the front where you might have your sticker. It makes sense. So print a few and put them on the front the side and the back of your home. What could it hurt?

The ASPCA also offers a Pet Safety Pack. In the event of an emergency, our pet rescue window decal alerts rescue personnel that pets are inside your home. The safety pack also includes an ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center magnet—a great way to keep the APCC’s toll-free emergency number and website address handy in case your pets get into something they shouldn’t!

You can also make your own. Use brightly colored paper, add a title — ANIMALS INSIDE, write down you info, cover it in plastic (so it lasts) and tape it to your windows.

Truly FREE Pet Rescue Stickers!

If you have a printer at home, you can download these stickers by clicking on the one you want (or both), print them out and fill in your info. For extra protection, you can slip them into plastic sleeves, then tape them to your doors and windows. There are four on an 8.5″x11″ page and you can print as many as you want. For FREE! Here are your choices.

FYI: beingStray is in no way associated with PetPlan or IHeartDog. I just thought this was a nice service to offer and wanted to pass it along.

    Does anyone know where I can buy the pet alert stickers in bulk but won’t cost a lot? I’m going to give them out free and paying for them myself.. I would like 50. Thank you in advance for your help.

      I don’t know who offers them in bulk. We have some free ones that you print yourself. Just download them from the link on our post. They print 4 on a page, so you could print 12 pages and get 48 stickers. Places like Staples, Office Supply and Walmart carry sticker paper. And if you don’t have a printer, there are places that will print them for you — PostNet, Kwik Kopy, etc.

      Hope that helps.

    Our shelter would like to give out free rescue stickers to our residents. Is it possible to get a donation of stickers in bulk?

    No links except to aspca

    • isak says:

      The first link requires your name and email address, then lets you create a sticker afterwards that can be customized with your pet’s photo.

      Here’s a link to a more generic sticker that is free but requires you to play for shipping.

    the EM window cling/pet insurance website refuses to accept any valid email address as a valid email address.
