ELKLAND, Pa. (WETM) – Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries is hosting a pet microchip clinic this Saturday, Sept. 28, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Elkland Volunteer Fire Department in Elkland, Pa.
Microchips are permanent forms of identification that can’t be lost. If a pet becomes lost, any organization with a microchip scanner, such as veterinary offices, animal rescue facilities, and county offices, can scan the animal for a chip, which will display the owners’ contact information.
The microchipping will cost $15, and the chip can be registered for an additional $5 at the fire department on Parkhurst Street.
No appointment is needed and owners can pay with cash or check. Dogs are required to be on leases, and cats and other small animals in carriers. Animals should be a minimum of four pounds.
For questions or more information, contact Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries at 570-376-3646.
