MICROCHIPING OFFERED

There are two reasons that animal shelters normally operate at full capacity. One reason is animal overpopulation due to irresponsible pet owners who won't have their pets spayed or neutered. The other reason is that pet owners simply won't put an identification tag on their animal's collar. It only costs a few dollars but almost all animals that enter animal shelters don't have ID tags. For that reason, the Humane Society has started a microchiping program. A tiny microchip that is about the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the animals skin between the shoulder blades. This method of identifying animals has been used for decades on dogs, cats, horses, birds and any other animal considered valuable by its owner. The recent Katrina disaster clearly shows how important it is to identify a loved family pet. What is so different about our microchip is that it only costs $10.00 per animal (Calloway County only)and our volunteers do all the work including mailing in the registration papers! All the animal owner has to do is pay $10.00 per animal and we do the rest. To find out when the next microchipping clinic is offered, check our schedule of events on the homepage. For more details about microchiping, call the Humane Society at 270-759-1884. If you know someone who has a dog or cat that hasn't been chiped, please let them know about this very affordable service. NOTE: Clinics offered in surrounding counties cost $15.00 per animal.
