Animal shelters around the country see a large increase in lost pets in the days following Halloween.  Opening and closing your door for trick or treaters can result in a lost or missing pet and lots of anxiety for pet owners!

Many humane organizations offer free or discounted pet microchipping during the month of October.  If your pet is not microchipped, now is a great time to do it!  Microchipping makes it easier to quickly recover a lost dog or cat.

Stray animals brought to shelters are routinely scanned for microchips.  A microchipped pet has an ID number that allows animal welfare workers to link animals to their owners and contact them immediately.

After microchipping your pet, be sure to keep all your contact information up to date with the microchip company.
