The Magic of a Microchip
Baby Boy was a sweet, senior pitbull that was brought to the center by a member of the community—he had no collar or name tag and was presumed to be a lost pet. With hundreds of pets coming in every week, it’s fairly often that a pet comes in without a collar, and usually doesn’t have a microchip either, but our intake team scans all pets anyway, just to be on the safe side. To our surprise, Baby Boy DID have a microchip, with contact information on file, and his family were eager to come and pick him up. Baby Boy was actually lost for almost 7 years and it was all thanks to his microchip that he was able to find his way to his true home. Microchipping your pets is one of the greatest ways to help make sure your pet finds their way home if ever lost, and always make sure your contact is updated. If your pet is in need of a microchip, you can schedule an appointment with our Low-Cost Clinic here.
