Microchip Your Pets For Safety

HELLO!  MY NAME IS PEPPER.  AREN'T I JUST THE HANDSOMEST DOGGIE WITH MY SMART BOW TIE?


MY DADDY FOUND ME IN A PARKING LOT WHEN I WAS ONLY ABOUT 12 WEEKS OLD.  I DIDN'T HAVE A COLLAR OR A MICROCHIP. 

Keep your pets safe, please microchip!

    1. Yes, it's critical to have both tags and a microchip in case you get lost. I'm so glad my friends found Pepper, they are THE best Daddies, he's a lucky pup!

  2. Microchipping is SO important! If someone isn't chipped, NOW is the perfect time to do so. More pets go missing on the 4th of July than at any other time of the year. Please secure your dogs/cats and microchip them!!!!

  4. I agree microchips are SO IMPORTANT! All our babies are chipped. We have had some miracle stories at the shelter where I volunteer - one adopted cat was lost and then found a year later two towns over because of a chip. Wish they were required by law like rabies shots.

    I so LOVED meeting you this past weekend! Look forward to seeing each other next year in Myrtle Beach!

    1. I'm so happy Pepper ended up with an amazing family, I know they'll take such great care of him. I'm amazed as well how many people do not know how important it is to microchip pets. So much heartbreak could be avoided.

  7. I know microchipping is important, but my cats aren't microchipped because of a potential medical issue. I watch them like a hawk!

    1. Oh yeah, some pets cannot be chipped due to medical reasons. You have to be hyper-vigilant in keeping them safe!

  9. Microchipping is important as well as checking them regularly. We had to get Mr. N rechipped. The reader couldn't find one.
