On the safe side of things, it is so very important for us pets to wear proper ID tags and to be microchipped! NEVER LEAVE HOME NAKED! My sister Katie and I have our collars with our tags and we each have 2 chips, one European and one for the USA, so if we are ever lost we will hopefully be found. In case you did not know the chips and readers operate with frequencies and many readers only pick up certain frequencies, not all which is why Katie and I have 2 different chips. Some countries also place the chips in different spots so they may be missed by a scanner in a different country. It is too bad it is not the same worldwide with the location and frequency.
We lost our kitty Tom back on September 17, 2008. He was on the deck one minute and then we never saw him again. He did not have tags and was not chipped. We looked for him with mom for weeks walking all over the place checking everywhere and never found him. He was an outdoor cat when we got him in Germany, so we could not keep him in the house all the time in the US since he loved the outdoors. Now our kitties are house cats but they are also chipped just in case.
While at Blogpaws, mom discovered Just4MyPet.com. This is a great company with a whole line of pet products many of which you can have personalized! Right now they are offering free pet tags so it is a great opportunity to make sure that your pets have proper ID! Just4MyPet is a site for cats and dogs, so if you need a cat tag you can pick one of those up too! Click here for more information on how to get your free pet tag.
Were you aware that June is microchip month? The Found Animals Registry is working hard this month to get pets chipped!
The Found Animals Registry is revolutionizing the way lost pets are reunited with their families through automated Found Pet Alerts. The automated Found Pet Alerts enable humane organizations to contact the pet owner through phone, email and text messages, with information on how to pick up the lost pet. The alerts will continue for up to four days, unless the pet is retrieved sooner. The registry is free and offers the fully automated alert system for reuniting pets with their families.
One in every three pets is lost in its lifetime. In the past five years alone, more than 3 million lost cats and more than 760,000 lost dogs were never reunited with their owners. Through its initiatives in June, Found Animals aims to show pet owners that a microchip itself isn’t enough – microchips must be registered, and contact information kept current, to increase the chances of being reunited with a lost pet.
In celebration of Microchip Month, throughout the month of June several Los Angeles-area partners will offer microchipping at a discounted rate of $10 per pet. These include Adopt & Shop, Angel Dogs Foundation, Spay-4-LA, SNP LA and FixNation. Along with the discount microchip, pet owners will also receive free lifetime registration in our Found.org registry.
