Anyone thinking about not having a chip might want to think about more than theft. You never know when a disaster can strike when you are not around. It is a way that you can be reunited with your pet should something happen. No part of the country is exempt from some sort of disaster and you need to protect your animals.

WE have our beloved Avatar chipped and the foster cat we are watching (maine coon) chipped; it just takes one clap of thunder and they run. So it was our way of making sure the furbabies were safe.
Good to see you Auntpiggylpn again !!!

I also had my dog tatooed. She was a show dog but I did the tatooing because if someone picks her up or steels her and tries to sell her to a testing lab, if she has a tatoo, then they can't use her for any type of testing. It only cost me 25 way back when but I felt it was worth it. The chip in my little American Eskimo helped last yr when she got out and got lost for 2 days. I called animal control and they said first of all the rarely get the orginal ones (little ones) so that narrowed down the search for the right owner if they found her plus I had the chip in. She was so scared after being away from home for 2 days, it was cold and rainy, she hates the rain. She was so scared that it took them awhile of trying to play with her to get close enough to scan her. It was such a relief when I got her back. By the way, she won't step foot outside of our yard now and when doesn't want to come in all I have to do is act like I'm closing the door and she comes running in. She learned her lesson about the big scary world.

Last year, I found 2 beautiful purebred male cocker spaniels puppies alongside the road in a truly rural area. They were filthy, starving and covered with burrs & fleas. I picked them up, not wanting them to get hit, and took them along to my vet. They were scanned by at least 3 vet techs and both vets and they were not chipped. I called and went everywhere trying to find the owner(s) and no one claimed them. So after a month of living with 3 cats, 1 6 yr old shepherd and 3 puppies about 4 - 6 months of age, the vet's aunt adopted the puppies. They are living the life of Riley now and happily adjusted and my sanity returned too. Long story short, had they been chipped the dogs would have been reunited with their people but no one even looked for them, that I'm aware of, and they are living a good life with a woman who devotes her life to them.

So yes, my critters are chipped and I will have my vet check the chips on their next visits.
