Please sign and share this petition to make it COMPULSORY to scan and check microchips to reunite stolen pets! https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/300010
Time is running out and it’s our dogs, cats and horses who will ultimately pay the price because we let the microchip system carry on letting pet families down.
We have in the past named rescues like Dogs Trust, RSPCA, Blue Cross and we have named BVA, RCVS, vet practices, police forces who have let the microchip system down, by rehoming, changing microchip registration, or putting to sleep. It doesn’t work naming and shaming. They apologise, say it won’t happen again and that they will introduce stronger ‘Best Practice’ guidance.
It’s time for the Government to step in and legislate to make it compulsory for vets, rescues, finders and authorities to scan and check microchips to reunite stolen and missing pets. Please support the families with missing pets and sign the petition for change:- https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/300010
If the Government can make it compulsory to microchip they can make it compulsory to check microchips.
