More pets go missing during the 4th of July than any other time of the year. Making sure your pet has a current ID tag and microchip is the best way to help a lost pet find its way back home. To help prepare for the upcoming holiday, Pasadena Humane is hosting two free microchip clinics.
A microchip is a permanent pet ID, about the size of a grain of rice, that goes under your pet’s skin. Unlike ID tags which can fall or be taken off, a microchip is with your pet for the rest of their life. If your lost pet is brought to a shelter or vet’s office, they will be scanned for a microchip and the registered owner will be contacted. To help facilitate a quick reunion, make sure your pet’s microchip company always has your current contact information.
The free microchip clinics, made possible thanks to a donation from Michelson Found Animals, will be held on June 16 and June 19 at Pasadena Humane by appointment only. No walk-ins will be permitted. Appointments are filling fast. Please visit pasadenahumane.org/vax and click “Make an Appointment” to book your pet’s spot.
