Amarillo has a huge pet population and because of that our shelters at times are busting at the seams with animals. Animals that have been abandoned, surrendered or animals that have just gotten lost. We as citizens have to do better and be more responsible with our animals.
The controversy with the Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare continues. A woman by the name of Miranda took to Facebook recently to tell her story about how her pet dog Gordy was mistakenly euthanized by the Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare.
If you have a pet then your pet should have a microchip. This is one of the most important decisions you should make as a pet owners. Collars come off and tags fall off and if your pet is microchipped you can still be found.
You love your pet and you would never want anything to happen to them. That's why it is important to have your pet microchipped. Having them microchipped means if they ever get out or get lost, they can be scanned and your information will pop up.
It's a sad world we live in when a human being, tosses a helpless animal into a dumpster. I get it if you don't want the animal. Take it to a shelter, take it to the Animal Animal Management and Welfare, take it to Facebook and ask for someone to adopt it from you. You don't just throw it in the trash.
When you have a pet, they become a part of your family. No one wants to think about losing their pet and that's why getting them microchip is a great idea. If they get lost, then any vet, shelter, etc can scan them and find you!
