Our friends at Allianz shared with us an infographic with some incredible statistics showing the landscape of insured pets. We would like to highlight that microchipping is a legal requirement for all dogs as of March 2016, so please ensure that your dog is micorchipped; it is the law. We were also saddened by the neutering figures, showing that only 38.5% of insured pets are spayed or neutered. Ireland faces a huge pet overpopulation crisis, and the best way you can help is to have your pets neutered or spayed so you are not contributing to the large numbers of unwanted pets arriving at the ISPCA and other rescues every day.
