Target: Animals Are First Fund President Brian Cronin
Goal: Thank nonprofit for donating valuable microchips to an animal care center.
The San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control in California has received a donation in the form of microchips to be implanted into the animals if preferred by their new adoptive owners. The generous donation comes from the Animals Are First Fund, which is a nonprofit that is part of the animal care and control center. It was originally established to raise money for animal care and control programs and features that could not be covered by San Bernardino county.
Statistics show that millions of animals are stolen each year and only a small percentage of them actually make it back home to their owners. According to The Sun, Animal Care and Control Director Brian Cronin said that the microchips have been very effective in reuniting lost pets with their families. This is possible because the adoption center assigns a unique number to every animal that they install the chip in. Those aren’t the only benefits of installing the microchips; San Bernardino county is also gaining an advantage in pet adoptions because it offers new owners the free microchip installation.
The nonprofit has donated 5,000 microchips each year for the past two years. In January 2015, the board of supervisors approved the third donation. Microchips give animals the best chance of returning to their owners if they are lost.
Please sign this petition to thank the Animals Are First Fund for raising money to donate 5,000 microchips to the animals in San Bernardino county.
Dear Brian Cronin,
Animals are constantly getting separated from their owners. Sadly, statistics show that missing pets rarely ever make it back home safe and sound. Most times, installing a microchip into an animal is the only way to ensure that it will eventually be reunited with its owners. Microchips increase this chance because it provides owners with a permanent identification number for their pet.
Thank you for raising money through your nonprofit, Animals Are First Fund, to provide these animals with the best chance possible of staying in a loving home. Your nonprofit was able to raise enough money to donate 5,000 microchips every year to San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control since 2012.
Providing an option for adoptive owners to install free microchips into their new pets is a great way to keep these animals safe. Please continue what you are doing because it is truly helping the animals that need it most.
