Euthanizing lost pets hits epidemic proportions, over 11,000 per day in the United States.
30% of all pet owners experience a loss of a pet that goes missing. Less than 3% of cats and less than 15% of dogs are reunited with their owners. Microchips, dog tags and Animal Shelters are not successful in saving our most vulnerable friends

April 10, 2010 - PRLog -- There are about 5,000 community animal shelters nationwide that are independent; there is no national organization monitoring these shelters. The terms “humane society” and “SPCA” are generic; shelters using those names are not part of the ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States. Currently, no government institution or animal organization is responsible for tabulating national statistics for the animal protection movement, according to the ASPCA website. With 60% of dogs and 70% of cats being euthanized, that enter these facilities, anyone would conclude that we have a national problem in finding lost pets and re-uniting them with their owners. Statistics show a majority of lost pets are not recovered by veterinarians, animal shelters or humane societies, but by your neighbors. 63% of all households in America has a pet. Why are so many lost pets being killed each day if we are surrounded by millions of pet owners and pet lovers? The answer is dangerously simple, the lack of current and readily accessible contact information available to the person who find your lost pet. You would think that micro chipping of our pets would have solved this dilemma but according to a national survey, only 5% of those pets, that are found and scanned, are re-united. The reason for the dismal success rate is due to several factors. There are 3 different technologies competing for your dollars and they don't read each others scan. That is like putting a VHS tape in a Beta VCR, it won't work. For everyone under the age of 30, that is like trying to play a WII Game on a X Box. The other downfall for micro chipping is keeping the contact information current. Who is responsible for doing that? How do you get it changed? The inconvenience of updating contact information hinders some to not do it at all. If someone finds your lost pet they would need to take it to a Vet to be scanned and potentially incurring a cost for doing so. In all probability they would simply call Animal Control to have the pet taken away. If your pet has only a license tag on, the person who finds your pet will only be able to call Animal Control. Local Animal Control or Humane Shelters, no matter how well meaning, are under funded, under staffed and over run with lost pets causing them to turn to euthanization in as little as 3 days.
The answer is alarmingly simple, give those millions of pet owners and pet lovers, who will probably find your pet, current, complete and easily accessible contact information to re-unite lost pet and owner in minutes. This is done by having adequate contact information on the pet and backed by online information that is more detailed and accessible.
