City Mandates Pet Tracking

San Marcos, Texas, joins a handful of other cities around the country in requiring pet owners to monitor their pets electronically.

"The new ordinance requires all pet owners to have chips implanted in their pets.

San Marcos Animal Services Manager Bert Stratemann said the microchips are more reliable than the current tags.

'It's not going to get lost, it's not going to get taken off when you give it a bath,' he said. 'It's a way we can help track those animals back to their owners.'"
