23 Oct Why Should You Microchip?
The return-to-owner rate for microchipped animals is much higher than animals that weren’t microchipped. For example, about 22 percent of lost dogs that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent (a 238 percent increase).
The same can be said for cats. Less than 2 percent 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).
We hope to continue this increasing rate of success by continuing to increase our microchipping rate. In five years, our microchipping rate has increased by 63% by microchipping 2,743 animals!Make A Donation Today
