A microchip can mean the difference between reuniting with your lost or stolen pet and never seeing them again. Startlingly enough, only 58% of pets’ microchips are linked to the correct owner information.
The most common reasons that microchip information is not up to date are:
--Pets change ownership, often among family members and the enrollment/owner information is not transferred.
--People move and forget to update their pet’s microchip information.
--People have dropped their home phones – relying solely on mobile phone numbers and don’t notify the recovery service about the change.
