Above All... Remain Positive!

The Importance of Microchipping

  • Only about 22% of lost dogs that enter animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent (a 238 percent increase).
  • Less than 2% of lost cats that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped cats was dramatically higher at over 38 percent (more than 2000 percent better).
  • The American Humane Association estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year.
  • Don't let your pet be another sad statistic. Microchipping substantially increases the likelihood of them returning home by offering reliable, unique, and permanent identification for just $10.00.
