You may think "My dog is always on a leash so he doesn't need a microchip."  or "My cat is an indoor cat so there is no need for her to be microchipped".  But accidents happen.  Dogs get off leash.  Cats slip out open windows/doors.  Life happens.  For a small fee, you can have BIG peace of mind knowing that when these unexpected events happen, you pet has a much better chance of finding his way home because of his MICROCHIP.  Not convinced a microchip is worth the money?  Check out these statistics:

According to the Humane Society of the United States:

–> One in three pets will become lost at some point in their lifetime. ONE in THREE!

–> Only about 22 percent of lost dogs that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families; however, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent (a 238 percent increase)!

–> Less than 2 percent of lost cats that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped cats was dramatically higher at over 38 percent (more than 2000 percent better)!

–> Only 58 percent of the microchipped animals’ microchips had been registered in a database with their pet parent’s contact information.  Be sure to register your pet's chip after it is implanted; don't forget to contact the microchip company if you move or change your phone number.  Keep your contact information current!!
