Why Microchipping is Important
Microchipping offers peace of mind in case of emergencies. When you microchip your pet, they are issued a serial number which can help identify them if they run away and/or get out of the house. A phone number is attached to their information so you can be contacted when they are scanned at a veterinary office or shelter.
1 out of every 2 lost dogs and 1 out of every 3 lost cats with registered microchips return home.
It's a fact that 1 out of every 3 pets will go missing during its lifetime. Without proper ID, up to 90% (!) of these pets will never get the chance to return home.
What is a Microchip? Which one do we use?
We use HomeAgain microchips to register and ID your pet.
Microchips are a safe, permanent way to identify a lost pet.
It is not big! It is smaller than a grain of rice, and can be placed under your pet's skin without surgery.
Microchips do not hurt your pet. The procedure is very simple and similar to administering a vaccine or a shot.
These microchips are much more reliable than a collar or tag, because they cannot fall off or get lost.
We charge a minimal fee for the microchip, and all pets that are neutered at our facility are eligible for a free microchip implantation. You pay only the fee to register the chip.
