Humane Society offering low-cost micro-chipping for pets
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Microchips are a safe way to locate lost pets. And now the Humane Society of St. Joseph County is making it affordable for owners to get their pets micro-chipped.
If a pet runs off, all a local shelter has to do is scan for the chip and find your information.
The Humane Society will offer a low-cost microchip clinic this Saturday. Pet owners can get their pets micro-chipped and registered for just $25.
"It's the registration that costs money," Carol Ecker of the St. Joseph County Humane Society said. "Sometimes they just implant the chip and don't charge for registration and the let owner pay for it. It depends and some registration make you pay every year. This does not. The Avid chip is for life."
The clinic is Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon.
