Lost and Found Cats

All cats adopted by AVA include a microchip through 24PetWatch Registration to help identify and track your pet should they ever become lost.

If your cat does not have a microchip, your vet can insert one at your next check up for a small fee.

Remember to update your contact information if you move or get a new phone number.
