Q: What is a microchip?
A microchip is a small (about the size of a grain of rice) permanent electronic idenification chip that is loaded with important information about your pet. The chip is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet's neck.
Q: How can a microchip save my pet's life?
When an animal is submitted to a shelter or brought to any facility with microchip reading technology, one of the first steps upon the animal's arrival is to check for a microchip. If a microchip is found the owner is immediately contacted. (The chip does have to be registered with the owners current information). The return to owner rate is 20x higher if the animal has a microchip!
Q: Does the process hurt my animal?
Implanting a microchip feels no different than routine shots for your pet. In fact, the process only takes a few seconds.
Q: Is microchipping only for dogs?
We welcome any type of animal that you can control in a large group of people to be mircochipped during the clinic.
Q: How much does microchipping cost?
On Thursday, June 28th from 2-7pm microchipping services are free to the first 300 pets,thanks to our sponsors. After the first 300 pets, microchips will be $10. No appointment necessary.
Q: Do you have to be a City of Chattanooga resident to take advantage of the free microchipping?
Nope! We welcome pets and owners from all areas.
