Microchipping is safe, simple, permanent and is designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is injected beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades.
San Diego Humane Society in conjunction with Coronado CARES is offering a microchipping clinic on September 19th from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Orange Ave. by Walgreens for dogs and cats for $15.00 per animal. However, Coronado CARES wants to help you microchip and has pledged to pay the cost for the first 10 dogs and 10 cats. AND you can purchase great bargains at the same time at the annual Barking Lot of Bargains sale outside of Walgreen’s. The Barking Lot sale will be from 9:00 to 2:00. Coronado CARES has been able to reunite several cats found in feral cat colonies because their owners microchipped. We know microchipping helps make happy reunion stories. Coronado CARES will cover the cost of microchipping for the first 10 cats microchipped between 11:30 and 1:30 – the first 10 dogs to be microchipped between 9:00 and 11:00 are also FREE!
