More than 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year, according to the American Humane Association. But your beloved Bruno and Mittens don't have to be one of them. Through Saturday, the Arizona Humane Society is offering to microchip your pets for just $25 per animal. Pets adopted from the society will be microchipped for $10.
A study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association found that 52 percent of lost dogs who are microchipped are reunited with their owners, compared to 22 percent of non-microchipped dogs. More than 38 percent of microchipped cats are found compared to less than 2 percent who are not microchipped.
