Have your pet microchipped at SPCA
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.
