Have you ever lost a pet?
“It won’t happen to me.”
That’s what most people think until their dog does something he’s never done before…leaves home when a gate has been left open by mistake. It sometimes isn’t till their gone that we realize how much our pets truly mean to us.
Pets that have ID microchips can be quickly reunited with their families.
What is the an ID microchip?
Microchips are very small computer chips that contain an ID number that can be read by passing a microchip scanner over the pets shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchips unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet.
How the ID microchips work.
1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime, and without proper ID, 90% never return home. A microchip for dogs & cats gives the best protection with permanent ID that can never be removed or become impossible to read. Every month thousands of pets are reunited with the people that love them through the use of ID microchips.
Tragically, most pets never make it back home because their owners did not attach any sort of identification to them. Identifying your pet is vital to its return. With an ID microchip your pet can’t leave home without his identification. If a shelter finds your pet, they will scan for a microchip, and call your chip provider when the ID number is obtained. You will then be contacted by your microchip provider and notified that your pet has been found.
Lost pets are being found every day. The dedication and commitment of shelter personnel is what truly makes the system work. They are directly responsible for the recovery of thousands of lost pets. These shelter professionals are truly heroes.
