PVAC Success During National Lost Dog Awareness Day

not all dogs are homeless

PalmValley Animal Center hosted National Lost Dog Awareness Day Celebration on Thursday, April 23, 2015 from 11am-6pm at 2501 West Trenton Road, Edinburg, TX 78539 by offering to microchip dogs and cats at a reduced price. Over 90 pets (cats/dogs) were microchipped in celebration of National Lost Dog Awareness Day! PVAC wants to invite anyone who was unable to attend the celebration to please visit PVAC and take advantage of our $15 per pet (cat/dog) year round microchip price.

“We are so excited to have had so many people attend the [National Lost Dog Awareness Day] celebration, we want to encourage everyone who missed out to visit PVAC and take advantage of our year round low microchipping price. In the meantime, ensure your pet has current tags and always update your contact information to ensure that you can be reached.” Robert Russell, PVAC Director of Operations.

Over the past forty years the Palm Valley Animal Center’s Lost & Found Program has tirelessly worked to reunite families with their lost pets and encourage pet owners to use every available tool to safeguard their pets in case they are lost. In 2014, PVAC reunited over 1,400 pets with their loving families and just in the first three months of 2015 has reunited 439 pets, 56 more than last year. PVAC is dedicated to reuniting families and offers microchipping at a reduced price for the general public year round.

If your family is searching for a lost pet, search your neighborhood multiple times a day, check with neighbors, post flyers with pictures of your pet in your area, and at area veterinary clinics, if allowed. Alert your veterinarian that your pet is missing and visit your local shelter daily, if possible. While Palm Valley Animal Center provides services for all of Hidalgo County, the cities of Edinburg, Mission & Pharr operate their own holding facilities in addition to using PVAC, so be sure to check with these municipalities as well.

If you recently found a pet and would like to assist in reuniting it with its family, please take the pet to a local veterinarian or bring them by Palm Valley Animal Center to be scanned for a microchip. We encourage and welcome our community to post a flyer on the lost & found wall.  PVAC is open to the public 362 days out of the year to owners searching for their lost pet and/or to scan any found pet for a microchip.
