Reunite families and ensure traceability with microchips for pets

Microchips provide unique, permanent identification for pets and help to reunite lost animals with their families – dogs with microchips are three times more likely to be returned to their owner, and cats with microchips are 20 times more likely to be returned! Microchips can also help responsible breeders maintain accurate health records, and be used to track disease outbreaks and animals with inheritable disorders.

We’ve asked B.C.’s political parties to require that all cats and dogs bred, brokered and sold in B.C. be identified with microchips registered in a database recognized by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).
