Affordable registration for shelters
Why choose an animal from a shelter?
Shelters are full of dogs and cats. For the most part these are dogs and cats that have gone missing and unfortunately never go back to their previous owner. The shelter temporarily offers these animals a home until someone else wants to give this animal a new home. By taking an animal from a shelter, you also help other animals. You ensure that a spot becomes available for a new animal that also lives on the street. In addition, you also ensure that the shelter does not become overcrowded and that the staff (which are mainly volunteers) give less work pressure.
In addition to ensuring that an extra spot is released and reducing the workload of the staff, you give the animal a second chance. Many pets that end up in the shelter have already been through a lot. By giving it a new warm home, you ensure that the animal can have a nice life.
Preventing Illegal Trade
The moment you choose to take an animal from an animal shelter, you also ensure that part of the illegal trade is prevented. You never know what you will find when you search the internet for an animal. An illegal breeder is nowadays difficult to distinguish from a serious breeder. Unfortunately, the chance that you eventually have an animal whose welfare is not so important to the breeder is still there. In addition to ensuring that a new spot becomes available and reducing the workload of the staff, you give the animal a second chance. Many pets that end up in the shelter have already been through a lot. By giving it a new warm home you ensure that the animal can still have a nice life.
Are animal shelters safe?
Large groups of animals walk around in the shelters. This increases the chance that a disease will be spread. To prevent this, all animals are checked immediately upon arrival whether they have been vaccinated. If this is not the case, they will get all the vaccinations they need, so you can be sure that it is protected against various diseases.

In the United States, among others, the FDX-A chip number is often used. An FDX-A chip number has a code of 10 characters long and usually consists of 9 digits and 1 letter. In Europe, FDX-B chip numbers are always used for pets. These chip numbers are built up in a fixed way. They always consist of 15 digits. The first three digits are either a manufacturer number or a country code. Manufacturer numbers always start with a 9, for example 945 for FiveStar transponders.
The ISO-standards 11784/85 together form the standard for electronic animal identification. ISO 11784 determines the number structure (15-digits, the first 3 are a manufacturer’s or country code). ISO 11785 describes the technical concept of the microchips. All chips sold by PetBase/Micpoint BV comply with these standards.
