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!!
