HSSV offers microchip special to reunite lost pets with owners
Submitted By Kelly Grant
Joy and relief washed over Faye as she received the amazing news from an animal shelter that her beloved cat Ted had been found. After two long years of waiting, worrying, and wondering where Ted was, her prayers were answered. He was safe and sound! All thanks to the microchip implanted into his neck that listed Faye's current contact information.
If someone finds your lost pet and brings him to a shelter or a veterinarian's office, animals can be scanned for a microchip.
Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) wants to help reunite lost pets with their owners. That's why during the month of January HSSV is offering discounted microchip implant services at $30 per microchip (regular price is $45). Combined with a spay/neuter surgery, microchip implants are just $25 all year long!
It's fast and easy. Walk-in service is welcome at HSSV's Medical Center (901 Ames Ave., Milpitas) between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. No appointment is necessary. Microchips are provided by HomeAgain Microchip, the nation's largest microchip database.
