Aksum Notes:
Steve Dale is also one of my heroes. He has spoken out on many important pet issues whether it was popular to do so or not. He has directly and indirectly contributed to pet welfare and research over many years. I am particularly impressed with and appreciate his efforts against mandatory spay/neuter (MSN) laws. This article is a moving true story about how a microchip helped to recover a beloved pet. Many low cost spay/neuter organizations also vaccinate, worm and microchip inexpensively. Some Petco and PetSmart stores also have inexpensive vaccinations and microchipping. So even if your cat is 100% indoors, go microchip your pet NOW!
