Microchip Your Pet

Each year, twenty thousand lost and abandoned animals are taken in by Greenville County Animal Care. Some of these animals never make it home because they can’t be identified.

Microchipping offers pet owners the only truly permanent method of identifying your pet and linking the animal back to you, the owner. Collar tags can break or become unreadable and tattooing can become illegible. So, if you want to improve your pet’s chances of getting home fast and safe in case it were to go missing, microchipping is your best option.

Four Reasons to Microchip Your Pet:

  • Only true permanent method of pet identification
  • Best chance of your pet returning to you after going missing
  • Quick and painless procedure, similar to vaccination
  • Lasts for the lifetime of your pet
