According to the American Humane Association more than 10-million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year. One in three pets will become lost at some point during their life. Show you care by properly identifying your pet. A collar and tag with current information is the first step in pet identification. However, these can easily be removed when your pet is lost or stolen.

The most permanent way to identify your pet is microchipping. Microchipping your pet is a quick and relatively painless procedure and helps ensure that your lost or stolen pet is returned. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice that is inserted in the scruff or your pet’s neck. Each chip contains a unique ID number that can then be read by a microchip scanner and matched with owner information in a comprehensive database. A veterinarian, animal shelter or animal control operator with a wand can locate your pet’s microchip.

ALSO, while filling out your tax forms this season, don’t forget to check off animal homelessness and cruelty by making a contribution to the Prevention of Animal Homelessness & Cruelty Fund. The Prevention of Animal Homelessness & Cruelty Fund made its debut on several 2015 California Income Tax Returns (540, 540 2EZ, 540 NR, and 541, Schedule C). As one of the 19-voluntary contribution funds available to taxpayers, the Prevention of Animal Homelessness & Cruelty Fund will provide grants to animal control agencies, SPCAs, and humane societies for programs that prevent and eliminate dog and cat homelessness as well as the prevention, investigation, and prosecution of animal cruelty and neglect.
