Dog Facts

Do dogs need to be chipped?


Of course they do.

If your dog becomes lost, it’s easy to find him if he is chipped.

An ID chip is a tiny electronic chip implanted under your dog’s skin. When your dog is found and taken to the pound or a vet, staff members can scan the chip and get your contact info.

Your dog also should be wearing an ID tag with your name, phone number, and address.

Some chips come with a tag that gives the chip number, which you can read over the phone to the dog pound when someone finds your dog.
