DOG MICROCHIPPING CLINIC

January 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

  • Sumo

A microchip clinic will be held at 11144 US 42 Plain City, OH 43064 from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm Sunday, January 27th where staff will be inserting microchips for $30, which includes the microchip, insertion, and enrollment in a recovery service. Why? Tags alone can get lost or be removed and microchipping is an easy way to permanently I.D. your pet.

To increase the chance pets can be reunited with their owners, if lost, Canine Collective is providing pet owners with a more permanent way to I.D. their pets. The effort is an initiative to get pets (1) microchipped and (2) enrolled in a recovery program.

“We see so many dogs come into our shelter and many are strays with no identification and who’s owners cannot be found on PetFBI,” said Elizabeth Keay, Volunteer with Canine Collective. “If the dogs were microchipped and registered in a database, we could easily reunite them with their families.”

YOUR PET WILL BE CHIPPED – At the microchip clinic, staff will microchip your pet. The tiny rice-sized I.D. is encoded with a unique number and implanted just under the skin in the scruff of the neck. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds. The “chip” can later be detected and read by a scanner used by shelters, veterinarians, and other agencies.

YOUR PET WILL BE ENROLLED – At the microchip clinic, you will be provided with an enrollment form and information at the time the “chip” is implanted. You will immediately fill out the form to enroll your pet in a recovery service. This will ensure that you can be contacted when your pet is reported found. In addition, it is very important that you keep the information that is saved in the database current. If you should later move or get a new telephone number, please update your information immediately

USE THE COLLAR TAG – Your pet will receive an acrylic yellow collar tag at the event. This special I.D. tag will serve as a supplement to the microchip and can speed up the recovery process. When your pet is found, animal control, veterinarians and rescue groups will first look for visible I.D. and call the toll-free number on the tag. If there is no tag, they will scan your pet for a microchip and contact the owner.

To date, millions of dogs nationwide have been recovered and reunited with their owners through microchipping.

“One out of three dogs will be lost in their lifetime either from slipping out a door and running down the block or having your back turned as a squirrel runs by,” said Elizabeth Keay. “Only 22% of dogs without a microchip will be reunited with their families and that is heartbreaking.”
