The upside to this is, if some thug’s dog turns up dead after a dog fight, they’ll know who to come after.

Mine are chipped.

And tattooed.

And tagged.

And registered with the national chip ID registry.

Yeah, it’s overkill.

I got back my chipped cat from the pound after a neighbor trapped it in his yard and took it there. Normally we have a collar on him, but he slipped out without it one night. Normally the pound charges to pick up your animal, but they waived it because he was chipped.

This idea is only as good as the database.

FWIW.....many people are *transient*....meaning they move from place to place. And I'm sure that the *last* thing they think about is to change their info in the database.

Also, I don't see people complying with the mandate, any more than they do with registering/tagging their dogs, in the first place.

I’m all for chipping pets, but I am glad the supervisor for my district is Greg Caput. It is a rare Santa Cruz politician who recognizes that just because something is a good idea it does not mean it should become mandatory. I hope he is running for re-election. There are a couple doofuses already campaigning to replace him.

Microchips saved many a dog after Katrina. I think its a great idea for pets and a responsible thing to do. Microchips save many lost dogs from being euthanized and I’ve seen a couple returned after they were stolen. My dog and cat both have microchips.

Santa Cruz County pet owners will soon be required to insert microchips into their dogs and cats.

And eventually, Santa Cruz Animal Control will be able to determine if a dog has an owner or is a stray to be collected and disposed of.
