A new study by Pethealth, Inc. shows that more stray cats are being returned to their homes rather than taken to animal shelters. Increased use of pet tags and microchipping is helping to decrease the stray pet population and ensure that lost cats find their way home.
While this is good news for the cats that are returned home, overpopulation of cats and dogs in animal shelters continues. It's important to make sure your pets' tags are up-to-date with your current contact information. It's also a good idea to make sure the ring connectors on your tags are in good working order and that collars and harnesses fit properly.
