Pet ownership is a wonderful journey, but even
the most responsible pet owners should be
aware of the risks. Petfinder reports that one in
three animals will get lost in their lifetime. The
American Humane Association reports over 10
million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the
U.S. every year, including indoor cats.
GPS collars and microchips are making it
easier to reunite lost pets with their
owners, and ultimately keep them from
getting separated in the first place. That
means fewer heartbreaking flyers tacked
to telephone poles.
When committing to being a pet owner, these forms of technology
are worthwhile investments. The question is, which one is better?

state of confusion. Each gives peace of mind and an extra layer of protection.
