Microchip Clinic at Humane Society of Pinellas to be Held
CLEARWATER – Microchip ID for pets helps insure their safe return. On Saturday, May 9th, the Humane Society of Pinellas will offer a microchip clinic for the low cost of $15. The microchip clinic will be held from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. at the Humane Society of Pinellas (HSP) located at 3040 State Road 590, Clearwater. Microchips will be administered on a first come, first serve basis. Proof of your pets’ current Rabies vaccine and valid county license are required, so don’t forget to bring it with you.
Each year more than 10 million pets are lost. Fifty percent of dogs and 75% of cats are without collars by the time they reach a shelter. Microchip IDs help insure your pets are safe by giving them permanent identification. Pets with a microchip ID have the best chance of being reunited with their owners. All animals adopted from HSP are implanted with a microchip ID for the safety of the animal in case it is lost.
This will be the last opportunity for the $15 Microchip Clinic from the Humane Society of Pinellas before the 2009 hurricane season begins. The next Microchip Clinic will be December 5th, 2009.
