The Conewago Township Police Department would like to thank Brown Animal Hospital for its generous donation of a "Home Again" Universal World Scan Reader Plus. The unit is a pet micro-chip reader and is capable of reading 7 of the most common brands of pet micro-chips. These chips are placed under the skin of both dogs and cats to assist in the safe return of lost companions. Veterinary Technician, Natasha, provided Ofc. Kevin O'Brien and Sgt. Gary L. Baumgardner with a tutorial of the operation of the device. This chip reader will greatly lessen the amount of time needed in returning lost pets to their families. This gift from Brown Animal Hospital is another excellent example of our community coming together for the betterment of all, two and four-legged.
Don't forget to update your contact information with the microchip company. A quick phone call or sign-on to the company's website could make all the difference for your lost pet in finding his or her way home!
