How Can I Find My Lost Pet???Posted Wednesday, March 14, 2012, at 4:10 PM
Shelter staff and a representative of the Saline Animal League recently had the pleasure of presenting a program at the Marshall Public Library. Many thanks to Amy Crump and her library staff for inviting us to give some information about how to prevent your pet from being lost, and how to find it if it does get lost. If you missed the program, here is a summary of what we discussed:
Keep your dog on a leash, tether or in a securely fenced area at all times when it is outside the house. This is required by city ordinance. Keep a close eye on those indoor cats, they are strangely drawn to experience the out-of-doors via an open door or window.
Marshall City Ordinance requires all cats and dogs 6 months of age and older to carry a current rabies tag and a city license.
Microchipping is available through your veterinarian. This is a process of inserting a tiny microchip capsule in an animal which contains a unique ID # with which we can access your contact info. Most veterinarians and animal shelters have microchip readers which can help get an animal returned to you more quickly. THIS DOES NOT REPLACE A CITY LICENSE TAG AND RABIES TAG. Talk with your vet about the pros and cons of microchipping.
If you lose a pet in Marshall, there are several things you can do:
In 2011 only 20% of the animals who came into the Marshall Animal Shelter were reclaimed by their owners. This is very sad. Don't lose your pet for lack of taking some of the precautions listed above! If you have questions or need more information, please contact us at 660-831-0420, or email us at email@example.com
