I got my pet microchipped on a spur of the moment decision. I knew Buddy would never run away from me. But when I took him to a kennel, he managed to escape from them and run away. Animal Control set a humane trap for him, but because he was chipped, he was able to be returned to the kennel instead of having to go with Animal Control, and I received a call shortly afterward. I will tell everyone I know that these chips are fantastic.
