It seems like not many people microchip their pets though, unfortunately. I don't know a single person who microchips their pets (cats or dogs). I do everything possible to always insure that, on the off-chance they do get out, they're returned to me.
Matrix is chipped, and my Pom is both chipped and licensed with the state. (Unfortunately, cats can't be licensed). Ozzy has 3 tags on his collar. One with my info, his license tag, and one with his microchip number and the phone number to call. If he was turned into the shelter, in the incident his collar fell off, they could read his chip and give me a call.
Another thing - many people that microchip their pets don't register the chip. So they have a chip, but when, say, a shelter scans it, there's no information on it. That was the first thing I asked when getting them both chipped. I had it done at the shelter for both, and they register the chips for you, which I thought was neat. (Then you don't have to pay the extra fee to register it yourself online).
