Today's Tip – Microchips bring pets home!
Lost & Found Ohio had two found dogs listed this week on their Facebook page that were reunited with owners – all because they had been microchipped! Both dogs had been missing for months. Not only is it good sense to get your pet chipped to help ensure that she will get home to you if she is lost, but don't forget to take any stray dog you find to get scanned. The importance of a microchip cannot be overstated.
Most pounds and Animal Control departments have a scanner on hand, and they will scan a pet you bring to them to look for ID. Some vets and rescues also have scanners. If you find a stray animal, it's your responsibility to report it to local authorities, and good practice to have the pet scanned. If it is microchipped, it can get a pet home in hours, instead of days or weeks.
The lost and found pets that appear in these articles want to be reunited with their families, and their families are looking for them! This week there are an inordinate number of found stray animals. Remember, the found pets here that end up in shelters will only get a three day hold grace period, and after that they can be euthanized! If you see a pet in the list that is missing from your area, please keep on the lookout, and please continue to share with your friends.
The Cleveland Pets Examiner runs a Lost & Found Friday column each week. Check the list every Friday here in the Cleveland Pets column and share it with others who you think may be able to help or network the information.
