A microchip will give you the best chance of having your missing pet returned to you should he or she ever go missing! Harmlessly implanted under the skin, a microchip is a tiny electronic device that identifies your pet and you.
About our Clinics
As of right now we are no longer holding Microchip clinics. We do have the option of microchipping but it is only an option if your animal is getting spayed or neutered in our clinic. Tri-Cities Animal Shelter and Control in Pasco, WA does hold microchip events so please get ahold of them for more information or head to their website at www.animalsheltertc.com or call them at (509)545-3740.
Microchip your pet to help them find their way back home
A study of more than 7,700 stray animals at animal shelters showed that dogs without microchips were returned to their owners 21.9% of the time, whereas microchipped dogs were returned to their owners 52.2% of the time. Cats without microchips were reunited with their owners only 1.8% of the time, whereas microchipped cats went back home 38.5% of the time. (Lord et al, JAVMA, July 15, 2009).
