Invisible Fence reminds pet owners and the general population alike that July is National Lost Pet Prevention Month, an observance dedicated to keeping dogs and cats safe at home.
According to the American Humane Society, about 10 million dogs and cats are lost in the US 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 its second annual nationwide Lost Pet Prevention Contest on Facebook. Through July 31, the public is invited to nominate their local animal shelters for a chance to win a $10,000 grant, donated on behalf of Invisible Fence. The shelter or rescue with the most nominations will win the monetary donation.
“We’re proud to host this year’s Lost Pet Prevention Contest,” said Ed Hoyt, Director of Invisible Fence Brand. “The contest is expected to receive thousands of entries and bring awareness to lost pet prevention to communities across the US.”
Thousands of shelter and rescue organizations across the US are rallying for nominations and need their community’s support sharing the contest on Facebook and voting for their shelter. Voting and sharing take less than one minute and is free. Nominate your local shelter. (https://www.facebook.com/InvisibleFence/app/417068265313808/?app_data=%7B%7D)
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 more than 3,000,000 cats and dogs with its 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 Hoyt. “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.
