Old Timers Need Help ASAP
Throughout our site you will see some of our beloved animals labeled as “Old Timers”. This does not mean they are old in age, just that they have been in our shelter longer than others and their time is running out.
We keep all of our homeless friends as long as we possibly can but due to increasing numbers of pets being left in our care we are simply running out of room. Our old timers still deserve the most loving, caring homes possible, but we have reduced their adoption fees in hopes that someone will come along and give them a second chance at a happy life.
Please consider adopting an adult dog or cat and know that by doing so you are saving a life and gaining a lifelong friend. So, take a look through our adoptable pets and read the stories of our old timers and maybe you will be able help out an animal in need.
Importance of Microchipping your Pet
Peace of mind that lasts a lifetime.
The Bainbridge Humane Society, along with any local vet office, offers microchipping services to the public. There are many benefits to having your pet microchipped!
Most pet owners buy their dogs and cats collars and add a name tag with the pet’s name and their phone number. These are great, but outdated. They can easily break, fall off, or even the name or phone number can wearoff of the tag over time. The microchip is permanent and can’t be separated from the pet.
If your dog or cat is lost or stolen, the chip and it’s registration is definitive proof of ownership. This is particularly helpful in the case of stolen pets when ownership might be in dispute.
A chip greatly increases the likelihood that your pet will be returned to you if they are lost. Several recent studies show that cats with microchips are 20 times more likely to be returned to their owner and chipped dogs are returned 2.5 more than unchipped dogs. That’s a pretty significant difference and with over 10 million pets being lost each year, you want to do everything you can to ensure your pet finds its way back to your home.
Microchips last a lifetime. Once implanted, you don’t have to worry about them, although it is a good idea to have your vet scan your pet each year to guard against any malfunction.
