Microchip Your Dog or Cat

If your pet strays, it may remain unidentified for days or even weeks, causing much distress to you, your family and your pet.

Micro-chipping is a simple and effective way to make sure that your pet can be easily identified should you become separated.

A small microchip, (about the size of a grain of rice) is inserted under the loose skin on the back of your pet's neck. This coded inserted chip remains a permanent means of identification of your pet.

How to Get Your Pet Micro-chipped

No appointment is necessary to get your pet micro-chipped. You can bring your cat or dog to the shelter anytime during our regular shelter hours.
