SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - We all know how important pets are to families. A lost or missing animal can be like losing a member of the family. The humane society says one in three pets get lost from their owners and 80% are never found.
Last month's floods in Louisiana resulted in many more missing pets. It's a reminder to all pet owners to have ID tags and a microchip implanted with your contact information. The microchip only costs about $15 and will Identify your pet to those who have scanners like veterinarians and humane societies.
You never know if a weather event or something else will separate you from your pet. Tags and microchips are good way to help them find their way home.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
