Microchipping dogs does not only make it easier for the lost dog to be identified and for its owners to be found, but it mainly helps to deal with the phenomenon of stray animals and to prevent the abandonment of pets, thus creating a sense of responsibility among owners.

In this way, the provisions of the legislation of animal welfare that criminalize the abandonment of pets are strengthened. Therefore, dog owners can be taken to court in case they abandon their microchipped animals, and the court can even impose on them heavy fines for abandonment or neglect.

Moreover, there is more control for illegal transport of animals between different countries.
