Animals may be located with the help of a microchip

If a pet goes missing from home there are numerous questions owners ask themselves when trying to locate it. Is it hurt? Is it hungry? One way to mitigate those circumstances is by having your pet licensed and microchipped, reports The Grunion Gazette.

Five-year-old Gigi, a precocious pug, was found recently and brought to a local animal rescue center. She had been missing for three years, but workers at the shelter located a microchip that helped find her owner.

When a pet is brought into an animal rescue shelter after being found, many try to search for a microchip or some sort of identification that may help locate their families.

"That is the best insurance policy you can have for your pet," John Keisler, manager of an animal shelter, told the news source. "You can pretty much implant a chip in anything - rabbits, turtles, mice - even a snake."
