Thousands of cats are just disposed of every year without being scanned for a chip after being involved in Road Traffic Accidents.
Owners search for months and years and never get closure:
- Scanning takes two minutes.
- Cats are a part of a family and deserve to be returned home, not thrown into landfill.
The Government responded to the petition, and this is the response which was given (on 15 February 2019):
"We encourage microchipping of cats and it is established good practice for local authorities and the Highways Agency to scan domestic pets found on our streets so that the owner can be informed".

There are nearly 95000 signatures for that petition: at 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
