Recently, this beautiful cat was found in the Nakusp area, and PALS was asked to try to locate his family. He was a healthy and well-socialized boy, so we felt his family would be looking for him and he’d be home quickly. Unfortunately, after posting his photo on our PALS website and out onto the community Facebook sites in the area, we had no responses. Our veterinarians at Nakusp Veterinary Clinic then found that he had a microchip, and a search for this kitty’s family was conducted.
Trigger’s family was found because of the microchip!!
Due to changes in the family’s living conditions, this beloved pet was separated from his family. Because his humans had a microchip inserted when Trigger was neutered, the family was found and notified that Trigger was here in Nakusp. The family however, is from Smithers, BC!! Because of his MICROCHIP, HIS FAMILY WAS FOUND and PALS is happy to announce that Trigger will fly home on Monday, October 30th to be reunited with his loving family!
If you’ve been considering getting your pet tattooed or a microchip inserted for identification purposes, please do! We find so many pets that never get home to their loving owners because we can’t identify exactly where they belong. Even house pets can escape and become lost, so being able to find where they belong is so important. Microchips allow our vets to locate owners and families of pets from our area – and from far away.
For more information on Microchips or tattoos for identification of your pet, please call PALS at 250-265-3792. We’ll be happy to share information with you!
