How pathetic it would be to lose our treasured pets at home? The best option is to microchip them. Microchipping is a permanent form of identification that cannot fall off or become impossible to read, giving pets the best chance of being reunited with their owners when lost. Home Again is a comprehensive national pet-recovery service that goes beyond microchipping. They help the American Humane Association’s Be Kind to Animals Week® May 3-9, 2009, by donating $1 for every pet registered during this week. They are making the donation through Bringpets home, a fundraising Web site specifically created to help shelter animals. This website has got a great collection of retailers for various products. If we purchase through this website, a portion of the amount will be sent to animals care like shelter, food and medical care. Browse through their site to get more information.
Speaking about Home Again Web Site, they have helped to recover more than 500,000 lost pets. For an annual fee, Home Again members have telephone access to pet-recovery specialists and 24/7 emergency medical assistance at 1-888-HomeAgain. The program also includes up to $3,000 (minus a $50 deductible) in medical pet insurance for lost pets and up to $500 in reimbursable travel expenses for pets found more than 500 miles from home. It doesn’t cost so much to microchip your pet. My friend recently did microchipping for her German Shepard and she is fearless now. Even if it goes beyond the yard, she is confident that she can trace it out without any hassle. Be kind to your Pets and keep them safe.
