Natural Disaster Recovery
No one can ever be fully prepared for every situation life throws at us. A natural disaster can happen anywhere, at anytime, and all too often with little to no warning. Having your pet microchipped can give you peace of mind during any such event that results in evacuation. As we all saw after Hurricane Katrina, a large number of pets were rescued by Animal Control and taken to a central holding area, where their pictures were taken and posted online, but many of these displaced pets were never reunited because ownership could not be established.
Prevent Serious Injury
Sadly, it is not uncommon for many pets to become injured while lost. They could be frostbitten, attacked by other animals or hit by a car. Although someone may come along, find your pet and take him or her to a local vet hospital, few people are willing to take on the expense of medical treatment for a pet that’s not their own. You may never know what happened to your pet. With a microchip in place, you can be quickly notified of your pet’s whereabouts and medical needs so that you can be reunited and make informed decisions.
