Thank you to Maricopa County for honoring us this morning for our $25K donation to the #LovePup It’s Hip to Chip program! Also, a HUGE thank you to Johnjay Van Es for the invite to be a part of such an incredible organization.
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back is very excited to announce we have become the exclusive annual partner of #LovePup and their It’s Hip to Chip Program. This is #LovePup’s biggest program yet, and we’re so pleased to be a part of it.
The It’s Hip to Chip Program aims to ensure that all dogs adopted from either of the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Animal Shelters locations receive a microchip upon their adoption. Microchips make it easier for owners to find their lost pets. By storing the owner’s contact information in a database, a microchip takes the guesswork out of trying to find a runaway pup. And, since the microchip is implanted under the dog’s skin, there’s no need to worry about losing the device like a collar or tag.
Radio host Johnjay Van Es and his family have been fostering stray dogs for adoption in their home for years. The entire family shares a passion for helping animals and preparing them for their future forever home. Since the creation of #LovePup, the family has rescued, fostered, and found homes for over 500 dogs. Van Es uses the power of social media to screen interested owners and match the dogs with the perfect home.
“We are excited to partner with #LovePup. We know the love and happiness a four-legged family member brings is one of a kind. I have a family of avid dog-lovers, myself; we have three furry friends of our own. Every dog deserves to find a good home filled with love. And, microchips help make sure that they’re never separated from their new home,” says attorney Kevin Rowe.
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back would like to encourage you to adopt your next family friend instead of buying. Check out the #LovePup Foundation for an array of furry companions waiting for their forever home.
