« Would You Take The Pledge? AKC Redefines Responsible Ownership To Include Chip | Main | Minority Report - NC Police Chief Wants Dog Owners Photographed & Kept In Registry Like Sex Offenders »

September 02, 2006

I'm wondering how long it will be before governments require microchipping of people. Mandatory chipping of pets is the first step; in five or ten years, if it goes unquestioned, they'll make it mandatory for people. You'll be tracked from birth to death.


If there is such a pet overpopulation problem, then why on gods earth did LA County Import dogs from Katrina? In doing so they now have the "Canine Flu" and the "Plague"! I think "WE" the citizens need to "demand" a mandated way of reporting all of the incoming animals. Over petpopulation should not include dogs that have issues (jumping fences, biting, aggression, medical, etc) and they should not count the same dog two or three times if per se the animal is adopted and then returned to the shelter. This is common practice amoung shelters to take the animal back and count it again!
If there was so much pet over population why are we importing dogs from out of the county as well?
I'm sorry, I rescue but only 10% of all the dogs we rescue are one's that I'd even remotely consider to be homeless, the rest have all had issues of some kind that landed them in a shelter or rescue!

One of the "reasons" given for this is to track NJ's pet overpopulation problem.

I've been looking for a dog, and spending lots of time on Petfinder looking at the dogs available at local shelters and rescues. MANY of the rescues IMPORT dogs from VA, GA, Puerto Rico and even CHINA! If we have such an overpopulation problem, why are we IMPORTING dogs?

Mr. Null has incorrect information!


My club is having a meet your breed this month and one of the projects offered is a CGC/TDI testing. I wanted to take the test in order for my dog to have 1. an extra title on the other end of his name and 2. being a good pet owner for my community. But after reading the application I found out that you had to sign the AKC Pet Pledge before you could take the test or get a certificate. And one of the requirements of this pledge is to have some kind of identification on your pet. Be it microchipping, tatoos, or collar with a ID tag. I was very up set about this because I what I have been reading on all the AR people and their tactics on identifing your dogs.

So, it looks like I will not be getting a CGC on my dog. That's ok with me. I'll just get other titles on him.

I just thought I would pass this along to any of you that plan on doing these kinds of tests even if they come from AKC.
