Droitwich Ferret Welfare

Microchipping of pet and working ferrets /pets

Chip4Charity is a branch of the welfare. We take in over 200 lost and abandoned ferrets every year. We are raising money for equipment and chips so we can identify all ferrets rehomed by the welfare. We will extend this to offer discounted chipping of pet dogs and cats.

Situation

Over 200 ferrets alone in the charity's area are lost or abandoned every year. We seek to identify these ferrets so we can trace the owners. The government are considering introducing compulsory chipping of dogs and we intend to offer discounted microchipping for dogs and cats. Microchips offer quick, permanent id and animals are registered with PetLog, the national database. The tiny inert chip cannot be altered or lost.

Solution

Microchipping will provide a quick, permanent ID of animals carrying the inert microchip. Animals can be reunited with their owners who can be traced promptly. This will encourage responsible ownership.
