Question by USA: What will a SPCA do if they find a cat with an expired microchip?
Last year, my cat got a microchip. Now I find out that they expect me to pay $ 15 every year. What happens if I do not renew it and my cat is lost? Will they euthanize it just because I did not renew the chip? If so, that is barbaric.

Well…isnt’ it also “barbaric” to not properly care for your pet? You got that chip so you could make sure your kitty gets back to you if they got lost. That obviously means you care about the cat. If you care enough to get the chip, don’t you care enough to get it renewed every year?
15 dollars a year…about a dollar a month. Sounds cheap compared to the thought of what could happen if the cat was lost and no one knew it was yours.
