KNOXVILLE, Tenn., July 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- July kicks off National Lost Pet Prevention Month, an observance dedicated to keeping dogs and cats safe at home. As the pioneer of the pet containment industry, Invisible Fenceasks the community to unite around this cause.
Raising Awareness for Lost Pets According to the American Humane Society, approximately ten million dogs and cats are lost in the U.S. every year, and the chance of them being reunited with their families significantly increases for microchipped pets.
To reduce the number of missing pets and help increase shelter's return-to-owner rates, Invisible Fence is hosting a nationwide Lost Pet Prevention Contest on Facebook. From July 1 – 31, 2019, the public is invited to nominate their local animal shelters for a grant, donated on behalf of Invisible Fence. The shelter with the most nominations will win a monetary donation toward microchipping.
Preventing Lost Pets Before They Become Lost In addition to raising awareness for tools and resources to return lost pets to their families, Invisible Fence also advocates products and solutions that prevent pets from escaping their yards. Since 1973, Invisible Fence has protected over 3,000,000 cats and dogs with their outdoor containment solutions, including Traditional Containment Systems, Boundary Plus® Technology and GPS Satellite Technology.
"Our exclusive technology is only part of what makes Invisible Fence the safest and most secure wireless dog fence on the market," said Ed Hoyt, Director of Invisible Fence® Brand. "But it is our animal-behaviorist approved Perfect Start™ Plus Training that ensures pets understand their boundaries and are confident in their yards."
Taking preventative measures like installing an Invisible Fence system and recovery measures like microchipping are the best ways to keep your pet within safe boundaries and living happily at home.
