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 to help identify stray pets. With a microchip, these professionals will have the information they need to contact you directly - even if your pet slips their collar.
Unlike a collar and tag that can be removed a microchip stays with your pet and is a sure way to know that your contact information will always be with your pet - wherever they go.
We hope you never have to worry about being separated from your beloved furry friend, but this simple safeguard is just one more way you can care for their wellbeing.
Get your pet chipped at our microchip clinic on January 25th.
