Is Your Pet Microchipped?

On average 1 in 3 pets go missing from their homes in their lifetime.  Life often brings about unexpected situations.  Make sure your pet is prepared!  Microchips help to reunite these pets in their homes.  If you are interested in another layer of protection, consider registering your pet's microchip locally, with Bloomington Animal Care and Control.   This will allow Animal Control Officer to reunite you with your pet more quickly, often avoiding shelter stays!  If your pet is not currently microchipped, your veterinarian, the staff at the Animal Shelter or one of these organizations would be happy to assist!
