-- Mission Viejo, CA. March 9, 2012 – My Pet DMV, located in Mission Viego, California, recently spent the day on February 14th discussing the importance of pet identification on Pet Theft Awareness Day. The American Kennel Club (AKC) reported that dog thefts were up by 49% in 2011 over 2010. Every year since 2007, the numbers of pet thefts have been steadily increasing.
“There are several ways to protect your pet from pet theft,” said Michael Scherenberg, the owner at My Pet DMV. “Microchipping your pet is very safe and reliable, as they use radio frequencies to find the location of your pet. I’m a big believer in this option, but be sure to talk to your veterinarian if you have any concerns.”
“You should also have pet ID tags on your pet as well,” Mr. Scherenberg continued. “Pets can get lost or they can escape your home through no fault of your own. With an ID tag on your pet, you now have a visible identification tag that enables people to contact you immediately once they find your pet. As a pet parent, you are responsible for your pet’s well being, and this is a safety precaution you must take at a very low cost.”
