The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is currently offering free microchips to the community through June 15th. You do not need an appointment. Just bring in your cat or dog to their main shelter and they can microchip them on the spot.
A needle is used to place a little chip under the animal’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. That chip has a unique number on it that becomes your pet’s permanent ID. If your pet is lost or runs away and is found they can be picked up and read by a scanner. This permanent ID can never be removed or become impossible to read. It can be done to lots of different animals, including horses, dogs, cats, ferrets, and most other mammals. The entire process takes about 10 minutes.
