According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2 percent of lost cats and only 15 to 20 percent of lost dogs are returned to their owners. This is a sad statistic, but it’s true. Your dog and cat cannot tell us their name, address or phone number- that is without your help!
Talbot Humane wants to increase the chances of reunited lost pets and owners. One safe and effective way to provide identification is through having your pet microchipped. In recognition of Pet Identification Week which is the 3rd week of April each year, Talbot Humane will be offering microchipping of your dog, cat or ferret for only $1 for the entire month of April. This includes the registration of your chip and an identification tag. Now when was the last time you purchased ANYTHING for $1?
Even if your cat doesn’t go outside, or your dog is always on a leash, accidents happen. Make sure all of your pets are properly identified so they can get home to you in the event of an unforeseen emergency.
To make an appointment, please call 410-822-0107 during office hours. Appointments for chipping are generally scheduled between noon-4P Monday-Saturday.
