Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

I am submitting in this thread a CARE2 Petition request concerning the mandatory necessity of scanning microchips implanted in all pets to see they get properly located before any put downs occur. Here is the actual petition:

"If you're a pet owner, then one of your worst fears is that your favorite furry friend will get lost. That's why we implant our dogs and cats with microchips. But if no one scans the chip, chances are you won't ever see your pet again.

"Right now, only eight states require animal shelters to scan for microchips. And there aren't any requirements for pet stores and veterinary clinics. That means even if your dog or cat is microchipped, they could be put up for adoption, sold, kept by whoever found them, or even euthanized without you ever knowing what happened.

"Care2 member Kara lives in Texas, and was horrified to learn that her state is one of the many without a microchip law. She created a petition to demand that the Texas State Senate pass legislation requiring all animal shelters, pet stores, and veterinary clinics to scan microchips. Will you sign it?

"Scanning animals for microchips isn't only about ensuring that lost pets make it back to their rightful owner. It's also about reducing overcrowding in shelters and the number of animals needlessly being put down.

"After a quick scan, many of the animals that wind up in a shelter would simply be reunited with their family. How easy it would be to guarantee a happy ending for lost pets, while also freeing up resources and space for those animals who truly need a new forever home.

"The more people who speak out, the more likely it is that the Texas State Senate will step up and do their part to save innocent animals' lives. So sign Kara's petition now demanding mandatory microchip scans in Texas. A victory here could also inspire other state legislatures to pass similar laws, as well."

THIS ACTION NEED NOT JUST STOP IN TEXAS. FOR THOSE STATES THAT DO NOT HAVE SUCH A LAW, THE TIME IS NOW TO START SIMILAR ACTION.
