August 15th is recognized annually as Check the Chip Day! Many people either adopt or purchase an animal with a microchip implanted or have it done at their local vet or shelter but then don’t give it another thought.
The July 4th weekend creates a “perfect storm” for missing pets. Here are some suggestions on how can you prevent your pet from being lost or enable a quick reunion if they are lost.
People are always amazed at how many lost dogs there are posted on our state Facebook pages at Lost Dogs of America. We commonly get the question “Are there more lost dogs now? Why?”
Lost pets can be found weeks, months and even years after they go missing. Not a day goes by where we don’t hear of a remarkable reunion from an owner of a long lost pet who feared that the worst had happened.
