Every two seconds a family pet is lost. One in THREE pets will get lost in its life. Most of the lost pets who are found wearing a tag WILL GET home. Most of the lost pets who are found not wearing a tag WILL NOT get home. A visible identification tag is the lost pet's best chance of getting home. Any pet can get lost...even yours! That's why your pet needs to wear a tag. Collars and tags can fall off. That's why we recommend microchips.
Microchips were developed by a veterinarian. It has proven to be safe and effective. A tiny microchip that contains a personal, one-of-a kind identification number distinguishes your pet as a special member of your family. A microchip is so tiny that it fits through a hypodermic needle. Just like a vaccination, it's injected under the skin of your pet where it remains safely for life. This inexpensive procedure can be done anytime and, best of all, protect virtually any pet you love...dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, exotics, even fish!
Everywhere your pet goes, the microchip is there. Real protection that can't fade or fall off. Your pet can't leave home without his identification. If your lost pet is found by a reputable shelter or rescue, they'll check him for a microchip with a special scanner.
Over 17,000 scanners have already been distributed by Avid System and lost pets are being found every day. The dedication and commitment of reputable shelters or rescue groups makes the system work. They are directly responsible for the recovery of thousands of lost pets. These shelter professionals are truly heroes.
Avoid the pain, worry and expense of losing your pet. It's vital to identify your pet, before it's too late. It really can save your pet's life.
Please be a responsible pet owner. Keep identification on your pets AND microchip them.
