Precautionary Steps

  1. Make sure you have recent photos of all of your pets and record their microchip number in a safe place.

  2. Micro chipping is great way for your pet to be identified without a collar.  A small chip is inserted under pet’s skin, which is registered to your pet. If lost they will be scanned and the identified by the chip. Shelters And Veterinarians all have scanners to check for chips.​​​​ To contact microchips companies, click here.

  3. When you move, contact the Micro Chip Company, Treasurer’s office and Veterinarian with updated contact information.

  4. License your pet. This is another way to help your pet be identified and returned to you.
