Did you know that a family pet is lost every 2 seconds?! Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. Shelters do their very best to locate owners, but if your pet has no form of identification, there’s not much they can do. A tiny microchip that contains a personal, one-of-a-kind identification number distinguishes your pet as a special member of your family. Once your pet is microchipped, the chip number is immediately registered with the database and your information. When your lost pet is found, you, your veterinarian or designated alternate will be notified! (Microchip numbers can also be used to purchase a Lifetime License from your county in the state of Pennsylvania. No more mailing a check and form on January 1st!!)
