According to the American Humane Association, only about seventeen percent of lost dogs and two percent of cats ever find their way back from shelters to their original owners. Almost 9.6 million pets are euthanized every year because their owners can’t be found. There are ways to beat these odds though, and they involve using name-tags, collars, and microchips.
Out of these three forms of identification, only micro-chipping is permanent. Tags and collars can become loose and fall off, but a microchip will stay in place for the lifetime of your pet!
A microchip is a tiny computer chip, about the size of a grain of rice that is inserted under the pet’s skin between the shoulder blades.
Microchipping is an inexpensive form of identification that provides owners with peace of mind.
