I know I usually try to keep this site upbeat but the latest round of missing animals reminded me of a campaign that really needs to be worked on.
We all see the posters of missing animals and if you are like me you have seen dead animals on the side of the road and hoped they weren't the one lost or the owner would find it and have closure.
So many people chip their animals now and the vets are registering them so people don't "forget" to get to it.
When the city cleans the remains away they DO NOT SCAN FOR A CHIP, so if you believe you will find out your lost pet is never coming home this way you need to call your local polititian.
If they charged $5.00 for the notified owner to retrieve their loved one it would serve so many good functions.
Owners would have closure
the city would make some money
the owner could move on and either get a new pet( or not) instead of spending more sleepless nights and useless time and money searching and posting for one that is beyond their recall.
Call your representatives and get them to impliment some brand of identification service so we can give these families peace.
