100 free microchips available for dogs and cats reclaimed from MADACC

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) announced Monday, Aug. 31, that they will partnering up to provide the public 100 free microchips for dogs and cats that are reclaimed from MADACC.

According to a MADACC news release, Lost Dogs of Wisconsin is generously sponsoring the 100 microchips. They will be made available starting Sept. 1, to cats and dogs that come in as strays (lost pets) that are reclaimed by their owners. Lost Dogs of Wisconsin’s mission is to educate and empower owners with resources and tools to assist them in locating their lost dogs. Microchipping is a crucial tool to help owners be reunited with their pets.

Microchips will be offered to all owners who reclaim their animals at MADACC as supplies last. 

“MADACC is very pleased to partner with Lost Dogs of Wisconsin on this meaningful project. Microchips are wonderful tools for relocating a lost pet and establishing ownership of your pet,” said Ms. Sparapani, MADACC’s director.

“We encourage everyone with a microchipped pet to make sure that they keep the information up-to-date with MADACC or their local animal control provider and the chip company,” continued Ms. Sparapani, “It is always sad when we have a pet with a microchip and the information leads to a disconnected phone or email.”

“The volunteers at Lost Dogs of Wisconsin work to reunite thousands of dogs every year with their owners in Milwaukee County and throughout the state. They provide free services to pet owners including assistance with flyers, social media posts and personalized tips and advice tailored to each individual situation” according to Kathy Pobloskie, director of LDOW. “Proactive efforts include providing microchips, id tags and timely tips to help ensure a quick reunion when a dog gets lost. But there is always hope, and the Lost Dogs of Wisconsin motto "Never Give Up" reminds people that dogs can be found weeks, months or even years after they go missing.”
