A microchip ID is a small chip, the size of a piece of rice, injected into the fleshy area between your pets shoulder blades. This chip contains an identification number unique to you and your pet. Shelters and veterinarian offices are armed with scanners that will show your pet’s ID number when scanned and return him home quickly and safely. As of August 17, 1998 all cats and dogs purchased or adopted in Miami-Dade must be microchipped.
When most people think of animal shelters, the local animal services is the second thing that comes to mind behind the Humane Society. The reason for this is that while the Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, Miami-Dade County Animal Services is not. It offers euthanasia services for pets with life-threatening medical conditions. However, it also includes a full shelter where pets from pups to adults are available for adoption. So depending on what your needs are, this might be the place for you.
