Don't skip the chip!
Did you know that a family pet goes missing every two seconds?
That's sort of hard to imagine, but it's true.
A microchip, collar and id tag are the best ways to ensure you and your companion will be quickly reunited should you ever be separated.
If you aren't sure whether or not your pet has a chip, now is the time to find out!
Animal Allies is hosting our first Microchip Clinic of 2020 on Saturday, January 25th at 10:00am. Bring your pet to the Adoption Center and have them checked for a chip. If you need a microchip, our medical team will be on hand to chip your pet and create a custom ID tag for just $25.
A microchip gets inserted just below the skin on the back of your pet's neck. This little chip has a unique identification number. Your pet's chip is registered with your contact information in an online database, ensuring a safeguard should they ever be lost.
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice.
Shelters, Veterinary Clinics, and community service officers (often Animal Control or the Police Department) have microchip scanners on hand t
