Protecting A Lost Pet

Network and the Animal Report

For your animals’ protection always have your cat or dog wear and pet tag and “most” important” have your veterinarian perform a simple non-surgical procedure to implant a tiny a microchip under the skin between the shoulder blades.

The non-surgical microchip implant procedure costs between $35.00- $55.00 but the chip must be registered to the owner with a national database for a small fee.

Pet-parents biggest mistake is not keeping their contact information current or registering the microchip in the first place.

A microchip will protect the animal from shelter euthanization by notifying the pet-parent when an animal enters a municipal shelter. Municipal shelters across the United States are required to scan for a microchip when an animal enters a shelter, prior to euthanasia and/or at the time of adoption to insure no mistakes have been made.
