Humane Society Offers Microchip Clinic

Permanent Identification for Cats and Dogs

Kalispell, MT – The Humane Society of Northwest Montana, home of the Charlotte Edkins Animal Adoption Center, is hosting a Microchip Clinic for community pets on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 12 pm to 2 pm at its Adoption Center located at 100 Adopt A Pet Way in Kalispell. Microchip fees will be $15 per animal and all animals must be secured on a leash or in a carrier. Pets will be served on a first-come, first-served basis so just walk in and register. All proceeds from this event will benefit the orphaned cats and dogs awaiting adoption at the Charlotte Edkins Animal Adoption Center.

Give your pet the gift of love & permanent identification! Microchipping is considered a safe permanent way to identify your pet and each microchip is equipped with its own individual number. The microchip process consists of inserting a small microchip, the size of a grain of rice, under your pet’s skin between their shoulder blades. Then the individual microchip number will be registered into a nation-wide database that stores pet owner contact information. Veterinary clinics and animal shelters with microchip scanners can scan lost pets and help reunite them with their family.
