The Importance of Microchipping Your Pets

Updated: Sep 27, 2023

We all love our furry four-legged family members and want the best for them, especially when it comes to health and safety. Microchipping your pet is an easy way of providing extra security in case they end up lost or separated from you. As a foster dog parent, finding a safe home for each pup is incredibly important - microchipping could be the difference between a pet coming back safely to you or disappearing forever.


Every foster dog should have a microchip and how it can provide peace of mind knowing that your pets are being properly taken care of. For dog foster parents, this is especially true when an animal enters their home from uncertain circumstances. Although temporary homes can provide a much needed escape for these animals, the precautions taken to protect them need to be extra rigorous—and that includes microchipping your furry friends. This small but effective step may help you reunite with a lost pup more quickly and easily in the future. Microchips are a lifeline to making sure your pet can make it back to you if lost. However, there are a few things you need to do to make sure the chips will work. 1. Have your pet scanned at their annual or semi-annual appt. Chips can fail over time (this happened to one of our dogs) 2. Make sure the chip number matches what is on record. Microchips are 15 digits and it is very easy for the person imputing the chip number to transpose one or more of the numbers or even add a number. 3. Make sure your dogs' chips are registered to you and keep your information up to date.
