You can get your animal microchipped at the Terre Haute Humane Society for a fee of $35.
We have become vastly dependent on technology within the last decade, especially with our pets. Each year, thousands of lost animals are taken by local humane societies across the nation. Unfortunately, some of these animals never make it back to their families because they could not be properly identified.
Microchipping offers pet owners the only true permanent method of properly identifying your pet and linking your pet back to you. Collars can break and tags have a potential of falling off the collar or even becoming illegible over time. If you want to ensure your pet’s chances of getting back to you safely, microchipping is your best option.
The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is placed beneath the skin between the shoulder blades or below the neck. The process of microchipping is similar to getting your animal vaccinated, so it is painless. Once the microchip is inserted, it is permanently located in the animal’s skin for the remainder of their life.
Once your pet is microchipped, should you change any of your information (location, phone number, etc.), you can contact the Microchip Company to update your information.
