Microchip Your Dog or Cat

Accidents can happen! Statistics share that 1 in 3 companion animals will go missing in their lifetime.

Microchips, engraved ID tags and licenses (with up to date information) are the fastest way for your beloved companion to find his or her way back home if ever lost. 

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 Microchipped

We are not open for microchipping at this time. Please contact your veterinarian for this service and check our website for updates. If you companion animal comes to us as a stray, we can microchip it at no charge, upon request.

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

Open Tuesday - Saturday, noon - 5:30 p.m.

The procedure takes about 10 minutes, including paperwork. Because this is a walk-in service, there could be a short wait if the shelter is busy.
