Why Microchip Your Pet?
Many pets go missing every day. To protect against losing your animal friend forever, a microchip is your best option. A microchip is a permanent identification that cannot be lost or destroyed. Here are some other important reasons to microchip your pet:

How are Pets Found?
Most lost pets will end up at animal shelters. Luckily, agencies like shelters, vet's offices, and animal control officers are all trained to scan pets they pick up or receive. Upon scanning pets, these professional animal workers will see a unique number that lists your contact information, your pet's name, and other information that identifies your lost pet. Owners are then contacted and informed of where to pick up their pet.
