The free microchip clinic at the Humane Society of Elkhart County is open to Michigan and Indiana residents. All organizers ask, is that your pets are vaccinated, and are either in a kennel, or on a leash.
Janet Graham, the Outreach Manager at the Humane Society Of Elkhart County, said microchips can be crucial in helping lost animals, reunite with their pet owners.
“Animals get lost, people make mistakes, animals get out, and a microchip can help get them home faster,” Graham said.
The clinic starts at noon and will run until 4 p.m. They are also holding a special throughout March where all dogs are 50 percent off.
