The Humane Society of Jefferson County will be holding a Microchip Clinic on Saturday, April 15 from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. in the shelter’s Community Education Room. Pricing for the Microchip this spring is $25.00 per pet, which includes registration in a pet recovery database. Appointments must be made in advance by calling 920-674-2048 or emailing Tmarshall@hsjc-wis.com
Veterinarians and animals shelters encourage microchipping – and for good reason. Microchipping substantially increases the likelihood of a pet returning home by offering secure, reliable, unique and permanent identification.
A microchip is no bigger than a grain of rice and the procedure is similar to a routine vaccination. At only $25.00, it is less costly than a month’s supply of pet food. A microchip and enrollment in a pet recovery database provides permanent identification that cannot wear down, fall off, or become scratched into illegibility like metal or plastic ID tags.
Without ID, 90% of lost pets never make it back home. Make your reservation now to have your pet microchipped at the Humane Society of Jefferson County on Saturday, November 12.
