The microchips contain information to identify the dog or cat and its owners in the event that the pet is found outside of its home. The information on each animal with a microchip is registered in a database. In 2013, BSO deputies in Cooper City responded to 167 animal calls, many of which involved unidentified pets. Deputies and BSO community service aides typically have to go door to door to find a lost animal’s owner.
All participants must register in advance for the event by calling (954) 432-9000 ext. 249. Only dogs and cats will be chipped. Two pets per household will be allowed.
