Microchips are used by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the study of such animals as grizzly bears, black-footed ferrets and giant land tortoises.
These endangered animals carry safe, permanent I.D. chips. They can be observed and protected while their habits are studied in a humane way.
Over 132,000 animals have been aided in finding their owners because they were microchipped!
8-12 million pets are stolen annually, and 30-60% of these are euthanized annually according to the Humane Society.
Collars fall off, but microchips are forever. They are virtually painlessly inserted in the back of the neck, under the skin and never have to be replaced. They are the size of rice.
Theses chips are accepted by the American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club , United Kennel Club, American Canine Association, American Pet Registry, and the USDA as means of identification.
