Milwaukee, Wisconsin Owney tag

Description:

This is one of six metal plates attached to Owney’s collar. He received it while in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on February 27, 1896. While the tag encourages Owney to “call again,” there is no additional information to indicate who attached this tag to the dog’s collar. Several railway lines ran through Milwaukee, connecting it with Chicago to the south and Minneapolis to the west, including the Chicago, Milwaukee, & St. Paul Railroad.
