It is our mission to help all pet owners microchip and register their pets.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
Found Animals Foundation will offer $5 microchipping for dogs, including free, lifetime registration, at the Downey Street Fair on Saturday, April 28th.
Pets will be microchipped with Found Animals brand microchips. These microchips are the 134.2kHz frequency which can be read by all universal scanners. They will also be registered in the Found Animals Microchip Registry, a free, nonprofit service dedicated to reuniting lost pets with their families. This online universal registry provides a one-stop destination for pet owners, rescue groups, shelters, clinics, and veterinarians. It is free to register, free to update and accessible online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Found Animals Microchip Registry offers advanced features like an automatic alert system. When a lost pet is found by a shelter, that shelter is able to use the pet’s microchip number to start an automated alert that immediately notifies the pet owner where they can find their pet. These automatic alerts will call, text, and email the pet owner and any emergency contacts.
“It is our mission to help all pet owners microchip and register their pets,” said Erin Nelson, Microchip Division Director at Found Animals. “We want to ensure that all lost pets have a better chance of finding their way home.”
The Downey Street Faire will be held on Brookshire Avenue from Firestone Avenue to north of Civic Center Drive in Downey, Calif., on Saturday, April 28, 2012. Microchips will be available from 9am-5pm on a first come, first serve basis. Supplies are limited.
