We would like to increase awareness about the importance of microchipping and/or tattooing pets
Pet Identification is important
Our mission is to increase the number of pets with identification so that when they are lost or stolen, they may be reunited with their owners.
Based on SPCA statistics, less than 2% of cats and only 15-20% of dogs with no form of identification are reunited with their owners. Nearly 95% of animals with identification are returned to their pet parents.
The microchip is permanent which means it will not require replacing, nor will it require a battery and/or maintenance. The microchip is placed underneath the skin between the shoulder blades using a special needle.
Placing a microchip is a simple, effective procedure that can be performed on an animal as early as eight weeks of age. Microchips do not require sedation to be placed in an animal and the insertion process is safe and quick. The microchip itself is about the size of a grain of rice and is housed in a glass-like material; this material is not in danger of causing a reaction from the animal’s body nor will it rust or break.
