Here’s what the Humane Society of the United States, says about pet id tags:
Don’t rely on the microchip as your only method of identification! While your local animal control agency may have a scanner, your next-door neighbor doesn’t – and when your cat or a dog gets loose, the people in your area have the best and earliest chance of finding her. Should your beloved pet get lost, a collar and pet id tag are still the most reliable way to make sure she gets home again. (Animal Sheltering magazine, Jan./Feb. 2009)
As many as 7 million cats and dogs in the U.S. end up in animal shelters each year. Typically, more than half of these animals are euthanized. Less than 2 percent of cats and less than 20 percent of dogs are re-united with their owners, according to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy.
While most shelters now microchip animals, this method of identification is not foolproof.
