With Rainy Weather Strays, Aggieland Humane Recommends MicrochipsFeatured Stories, News Wednesday, February 13th, 2013
The area has received half an inch of rain so far this week, and Leiha White with the Aggieland Humane Society says although it never literally rains cats and dogs, you’d be surprised by the number of strays that show up at the shelter on rainy days.
She says many pets who are left out in the wet weather run away, especially by digging out of their enclosures, but microchips will help ensure that your pet makes it back home.
White says chips are $25 with no appointment necessary, and they serve as permanent proof that the animal belongs to you.
She says they’ll also call you to check any time that people might come in with a pet that has one of your chips, even if they claim it as their own.
If you’ve lost an animal, White says to be sure to some in to fill out a lost and found report, because there is a whole network of people willing to help make sure your pet makes it home safely.
