Animal Shelters report, of all the pets lost, only a surprising 2% of cats and 16% of dogs are returned to their owners. In most cases, there is no identification on the animal. Whether the owners never put an ID tag on the pet or the pet becomes separated from the collar that holds that ID, your babies are still left in the shelter. There is a solution though. Getting your pet a microchip keeps them safe with or without a collar. All pets, upon arriving at the shelter, are scanned. Scanning is an electronic handheld that looks for any microchip. The microchip then gives the information needed to get your pet back to its owner. Microchips are available at all your local veterinarians office.
