Found a lost dog or cat with a CVMA Rabies Tag or Mile Hi Rabies Tag? 

Please check the back of the tag to find contact info. We do not distribute all Mile Hi Rabies tags; the appropriate contact information will be listed on the back of the tag.

If our information is on the back of the tag, please call our phone number listed for assistance locating the animal’s veterinarian. We are open Monday-Friday, 8:30-5 p.m. MST. If you find a dog or cat outside of these hours, please bring the dog or cat to a shelter or veterinary clinic to be scanned for a microchip.


About the program

CVMA is proud to offer the CVMA Rabies Tag Program — a statewide unified rabies identification system. For the past 30 years, this program has sold customized one-year and three-year rabies tags to veterinary clinics.

CVMA makes it easy for veterinary professionals to reorder each year. We provide you a summary of your rabies tag order from the prior year, saving you time and headaches when reordering. All proceeds from tag sales are reinvested back into CVMA programs and services for Colorado veterinarians…so you can feel good knowing you are giving back to the profession while helping lost pets find their way home!

2021 customized rabies tags

 CVMA is now accepting orders for 2021 customized rabies tags!

If you ordered in 2020, you should have received an email reminding you what was ordered in 2020 should you wish to replicate your order. Please remember that the shape of canine tags changes each year, as does the number of characters per line on the back of the tags. Click below to complete the 2021 order form.

2020 supplemental rabies tags

CVMA orders a limited quantity of generic, supplemental tags. These tags are not personalized, but simply list the CVMA phone number for tracking purposes. As supplemental tags are sold, CVMA’s confidential database is updated to show which clinic purchased what rabies tag ID numbers. When someone who has found a lost animal calls the CVMA phone number on the tag, they will be referred to the practice that issued that tag to locate the animal’s owner.

Please note that CVMA is responsible for collecting various local and state taxes depending on where your practice is located. Please read the descriptions below and select the correct form. Thank you!
