Breeds Training Microchipping For Pets Legislation in California a Possibility Angela Pham August 31st, 2011 | More From Angela Pham Share0 Tweet Email A lost dog could be more quickly found in California if Senate Bill 702 becomes a reality in California. According to the LA Times, Senate Bill 702 would require a tiny identifying microchip to be implanted in dogs and cats adopted out of municipal shelters or reclaimed at the shelters by owners who lost them. So if your hunting dog were to be lost (time for a GPS collar, perhaps?) and later taken to a shelter, he’d be automatically microchipped before you could take him home. What’s your feeling on this? Also, is your gun dog microchipped? The technology’s out there, and pretty inexpensive, too—about $5 to $25 dollars, or a bit more if done by a vet.
