August 15th is Check the Chip Day

A microchip increases the chance that pets will be reunited if lost or stolen. However, a microchip only works if the information linked to the chip is correct and your contact information is up to date.



Why should you microchip your pet?

  • 1 in 3 pets get lost at least once in their lifetime

  • Over 10 million pets are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year

  • Only about 22% 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%

Pet microchipping is a simple procedure performed by a veterinarian. A microchip for pets is about the size of a grain of rice (12mm) and inserted beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine vaccine shot, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required.

Stop by on August 15th to have your pet’s microchip scanned by one of our staff members to ensure its accuracy.
