PHOENIX -- A Valley group encouraged owners Thursday to get their canines microchipped in honor of National Lost Dog Day.

"According to national statistics, one-in-three pets will be lost each year," Judith Garner with the Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA said.

'Last Litter' program targets pet overpopulation

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Animal Welfare League offers a program to help pet owners in a bind.

The "Last Litter" program helps dog owners who have unexpected litters, sometimes referred to as an "oops" litter.

A litter of eight Boston Terrier Puggle mixes is the latest participant in the program.

"They're all named for the Cardinals football players. Floyd is running around here somewhere celebrating his catch from yesterday," said AAWL veterinarian Dr. Claudia Channing.
