One of the saddest situations is when we find unusual and exotic pets that have escaped from their owners. The first thing we do is scan them using our microchip scanner. The lucky ones come back with a personalised microchip number that allows us to track down their owners. The unlucky ones have no microchip, making it very difficult to find their owners. Unfortunately this means that these pets often never make their way back to their homes and often have to be re-homed. Microchipping avoids this problem and we highly recommend it.
