Pet ID Pertinent
Microchip connects lost cat with California owners
Released by Tricia Leslie, Van SPCA
ets are like four-legged members of our families. So when one goes missing, it can be profoundly stressful and frightening.
That’s why the BC SPCA encourages pet guardians to make sure their furry friends are covered – with both a visible identification tag that has the pet’s name and a phone number the guardian(s) can be reached at, as well as permanent ID, such as an ear tattoo or a microchip implant, in case the pet loses his collar.
“Nobody wants to lose their pet. But it does happen, whether a door or window is inadvertently left open, or during a big move, or sometimes, when a loud, scary event – like fireworks – is happening nearby,” says Ryan Voutilainen, Burnaby SPCA Branch manager.
