LOW COST MICROCHIPPING AT MIAMI-DADE COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES

LOW COST MICROCHIPPING AT MIAMI-DADE COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES
DEPARTMENT

You can save your pet's life by implanting a microchip!  During
National Pet Week, May 5 to 9, 2008, the South Florida Veterinary
Medical Association (SFVMA), participating veterinarians and
Miami-Dade Animal Services will offer low cost microchipping to
help reunite pets with their owners.

   "Last year, more than 34,000 pets were left at Miami-Dade
Animal Services.  Over 20,000 were strays with no form of
identification, making it impossible to reunite them with their
beloved families," said Dr. Sara Pizano, Director of Miami-Dade
Animal Services.

   "The few pets with microchips or tags had old information and
the owners couldn't be reached, added Dr. Pizano. Sadly, less
than 1% of the pets at Animal Services are reunited with their
families. You can change that!"

   Local veterinarians and Miami-Dade Animal Services are proud
to participate in this joint venture to microchip as many pets as
possible, raise awareness about the number of pets lost every day
in our community and the importance of microchipping.  It can
save your pet's life.
