Ha­ve your pet mi­cro­chip­ped at SPCA

Mossel Bay Advertiser - - Garden Route -

It was re­por­ted re­cent­ly that a dog that had been mis­sing for so­me y­e­ars was found as a stray al­ongs­i­de a ro­ad.

He was ta­ken in by an a­ni­mal wel­fa­re or­ga­ni­sa­ti­on, scan­ned and found to be mi­cro­chip­ped.

All of his o­w­ners’ de­tails we­re found on the sy­stem. His o­w­ners we­re e­c­sta­tic to he­ar that their be­lo­ved dog had been found. His “mot­her” spent the dog’s en­ti­re first nig­ht ho­me lying on the car­pet, hol­ding her long­lost friend.

It is law that a pet must be mi­cro­chip­ped or we­ar its o­w­ner’s de­tails on a tag at­ta­ched to its col­lar. Col­lars and tags are e­a­si­ly lost, but a mi­cro­chip stays put.

You can ha­ve your pet chip­ped at the SPCA for on­ly R150.

Con­tact the SPCA on 044 693 0824 for mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on.
