Petition All Uk cleansing and councils should check for microchips in cats found dead

More details

As the founder of both Missing Cats In Scotland and Missing Cats In England I feel it is a tragedy that cats that are run over and picked up by the local councils and/or cleansing departments, do not check if these cats are micro-chipped.

Daily I receive reports of cats that have been run over and daily I receive reports of cats going missing. If the cleansing and council departments across the UK had micro-chip scanners then owners of cats that are found dead can be alerted quickly and given the news, which then gives them the closure they need.

I am looking to collect as many signatures as I can across the UK in order to make this happen and make the jobs of rescues/charities and organisations easy, when dealing with owners of lost or missing cats.
