You can now have a microchip inserted under your animals' skin at the Animal Shelter!
The microchip is a permanent identification that can be used to return your pet to you. Most animal shelters and veterinary clinics have the capabilities to scan the chip implanted in your animal. This will give them your information and the animal will be returned to you. Most animals surrendered at the shelter or picked up by an officer do not have collars or tags. These animals have a lower possiblity of being reunited with their owner.
Here is some important information: Microchipping cost $25.00 (Must be up to date on rabies shot)
Microchipping is done Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. There is no limit to the number of animals you can have microchipped!!
All animals adopted at the shelter receive vaccinations (including rabies certificate), microchip, and a spay/neuter certificate.
New owners are required to take their adopted animal to the specified veterinarian (on the spay/neuter certificate) within the given time frame to have the spay/neuter completed.
