Animal microchip implants can help reunite lost or stolen pets with their human families, as well as recognize an animal that may be in need of a home. Animal welfare organizations use special scanners to read the microchips, which can store a host of useful health and identifying information about the animal. The Animal Rescue League of Boston rescues lost, stolen, and stray pets, returning the animals to their owners or placing them in new permanent homes.
With multiple locations as well as mobile scanning units, the Animal Rescue League rescues and cares for lost or stray pets with medicine, food, and shelter until owners can be located through the information provided on the animal's microchip. The organization also takes in and scans animals brought in by law enforcement as well as other shelters and rescue programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Animal Rescue League of Boston has only been able to purchase one microchip scanner. With a high volume of intakes and multiple intake locations, animal rescuers frequently face delays in the provision of health and placement services as a result of the equipment shortage. Additional microchip scanners would allow the Animal Rescue League to facilitate more prompt medical and behavioral evaluations, reunions, and adoptions.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help the Animal Rescue League of Boston purchase additional scanning equipment to identify lost or stray animals. If G-Team members raise $200, then the Animal Rescue League can purchase a microchip scanner for one of its rescue vehicles. Each additional $200 raised will purchase a scanner for one of the organization's other nine vehicles or shelter locations.
