Tornadoes, floods, thunderstorm winds, hail, lightning, heat, wildfires, rip currents and tsunamis – spring is three months of danger that can imperil the unprepared. It roars in like a lion and continues to roar across the United States throughout March, April and May.
During these months of extreme weather, the most important way to protect your pet is by having them microchipped.
Did you know?
- Getting lost is the #1 cause of death for pets
- 1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime.
- Without ID, 90% of pets never return home.
A microchip is much more reliable than a collar and a tag because there is not chance it will fall off. The microchip is a permanent ID that links your pet to you.
Here’s how it works:
The microchip is inserted with a simple injection.
Then, simply enroll your pet’s ID code along with your contact information. Enrolling is what makes it possible for your pet to be positively identified.
If your pet is taken to an animal shelter or clinic, the staff will scan the microchip and read its unique ID code.
The staff will then call the appropriate registry with your pet’s identified ID code
As soon as your contact information is retrieved, you will be contacted and arrangements will be made to reunite you with your pet.
