I paid extra to expedite my ID card and it never arrived. I gave you 1 star because I had to. If there was a zero star option I would have chosen that. No communication from anyone. Something tells me this is a scam. Thank god for AMEX protection.

I recently purchased a emothinal support animal ID card from them and to my amazement I received my order sooner than expected. The company was very supportive by providing me with confirmation of when it was shipped, when I should I expect it, and then confirmed that it had been delivered to my mail box. Overall I feel that they went above and beyond to make sure the customer was very satisfied with their purchase. I will continue going through them and I will recommend others to do the same.
