Each year thousands of lost and abandoned animals are taken in by shelters across North America. The majority of these animals never make it home because they can’t be identified. Microchipping offers pet owners the only truly permanent method of identifying a pet and linking the animal back to their family. Collar tags can break or become unreadable and tattooing can become illegible. To improve your loved ones chances of getting home, microchip your pets.
