Microchips/Nails July 18

THE 3RD ANNUAL KAH/BHRR Inc. Microchipping / Nail Trim / BBQ Fundraising Event with support from Kanata Animal Hospital is scheduled for Sunday July 18th, 2010.

***In 2008; TOTAL RAISED WAS $1,816.25
***In 2009; TOTAL RAISED WAS $3,000.60

We remain completely wonderfully overwhelmed and touched by the show of support imparted our way for the BHRR Animals in need of our programs.

The microchips are from 24PetWatch and they meet the requirements of the revised Canadian standard for electronic identification of companion animals. These microchips are also accepted by the CKC. Animal microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and are typically implanted just beneath the skin between the shoulder blades.

Every year millions of lost and abandoned animals are taken in by shelters, pounds, humane societies, SPCA's and rescue organizations. Of these animals only about 15% of dogs and 5% of the cats (estimated numbers) are ever returned to their homes. The primary reason that the statistics are so low is, because the pets are unidentifiable. Microchipping provides the only truly permanent method of identifying your pet(dogs and cats-especially outdoor one's!) and networking the animal back to their owners. If you want to improve your pet's chances of getting home; microchipping is your best option.
