Closed petition Option for farm sanctuary animals to be microchipped instead of wearing ear tags

The most common question we receive from the public is regarding ID ear tags worn by farm animals. If farm animals are removed from the “food chain system” and are living the rest of their lives on sanctuaries, we want the option to be able to get the animals microchipped and ear tags removed.

More details

Microchipping means the animals would still be traceable and accountable to BCMS but without that constant reminder of the system and death they’ve been saved from. At sanctuaries we take full responsibility for the animals health and well-being just like a human does who cares for a horse or dog or any companion animal - we want the option to remove the discrimination and be given the ability to treat the various species we care for in the same way we would be allowed to care for other species
