You all came through for us when we asked for input as we upgraded and remodeled JFF, so we thought we'd see if any of you have a human who works at a shelter or for a vet or is up to date on microchip scanner info and can help us out today. Jan is trying to put together a column to encourage the county and the local shelter to get it's act together on scanning all incoming animals but she's running out of time to finish it and get it in before deadline. She finally understands the part about the ISO and the differing US frequencies and how the manufacturers won't work together to make a universal scanner for the differing frequencies, but she's having to wade through so much old info and news.
Does anyone have any up to date information on scanners? For example, does the Bayer universal really detect all frequencies, as it claims? Is there another universal on the market? Is there a way to get one donated to the local shelter of would the county have to purchase one? Any information your human might have would be helpful. You can leave a comment or email us at jansfunnyfarm AT gmail DOT com.
This is pretty important to Jan, so anything you can add to help would be appreciated. Thanks!
PS - Deadline is before Jan falls asleep at the computer tonight.
