If you love your pets, microchip them.

Posted on: February 25, 2009

I just received this very important notice from Pet Register/ Lost Dogs Home.

All three of our fur babies are microchipped. I don’t know what I’d do if any of them got lost but it’s good piece of mind to know that they’re microchipped and if they do find themselves astray, it will be very easy for someone who found them to locate us.

Please help us microchip more pets!

Victoria’s recent bushfire disaster  has highlighted the need to identify family pets. Hundreds of displaced and injured pets cannot be identified by authorities. In normal circumstances, about 20% of the animals that arrive at The Lost Dogs’ Home do not have any form of identification. As animal lovers and supporters of the Home, you have probably already microchipped your pets, but please help us educate the rest of the community about the importance of pet identification.

Every Sunday in March, the Home is offering half price microchipping. For just $25, owners can microchip their furry friends and help prevent the heartache of a lost pet. Please help spread the word and forward this email.

Bookings essential: 1300 734 738.
Venue: The Lost Dogs’ Home, 2 Gracie Street Nth Melbourne
Chipping times: 9:00am- 12:30pm every Sunday in March.
