Microchips

Millions of pets go missing every year and out of those pets only 22% ever make it back home. Microchipping your pet is a great way to ensure that your companion has every opportunity to return home.

A small microchip is implanted beneath your pet's skin. This microchip does not emit information, and is not a tracking device. The microchip holds a number specific to your pet and the contact info of the microchip company that has your contact information.

When a pet is found and is brought into a shelter, or veterinarian, the pet is always scanned for a microchip. Once scanned, the microchip number and company will show on the scanner. The microchip company can be called after which they will contact you so you can be reunited with your pet.
