The Truth About Lost Pets

lost petsStatistics show that 1 in 3 pets will become lost at some point in their life and over 10 million pets a year will be lost or stolen.

I.d. tags on collars are important but can be removed or can fall off. A microchip is an electronic device about the side of a grain of rice that’s embedded under the skin and will identify your pet as yours if your dog is found and scanned.

Studies by Home Again indicate that only 22% of animals who enter shelters are reunited with their family while microchipped pets had a 52% rate of return. 

Microchipping is only the first step, approximately 58% of pets that are microchipped have parents who registered contact information to the chip.

The numbers don’t lie, so take the necessary steps to keep your pet on the happy side of statistics. We are proud to partner with All About Animals Rescue for a discounted microchipping event, $20 is a small price to pay for peace of mind and the proactive finding of your pet if he’s lost.
