o Pet microchip identification is a permanent way to ensure that if your pet goes missing, veterinarians and shelters can easily find your contact info and reunite you with your pet, even if they’re missing their collar and ID tag.
o Microchips are the size of a grain of rice and are quickly and easily injected into the skin on the back of a cat’s or dog’s neck.
o Microchips are not tracked by GPS; rather, they’re scanned with a wand found at most vet offices and animal shelters. They contain the owner’s contact information only.
o Did you know that 1 in 3 pets are lost in their life, and 90% never make it home?
o All animals adopted from IndyHumane are microchipped before adoption. If you aren’t sure if your pet has a microchip, we can scan it for you.
