Microchips are helping return more lost pets
MIDDLEBURY — Homeward Bound is offering a microchip clinic on Saturday, Sept. 15. The clinic is open to both dogs and cats.
Statistics show that one in three pets will become lost at some point during their life. Micro-chipping substantially increases the likelihood of a pet returning home by offering secure, reliable, and permanent identification. Thanks to a microchip Ozzie, pictured here, was reunited with his family in Vergennes after being lost for two weeks this summer. He was found by a good Samaritan in Stowe, who took him to a vet where his microchip was read.
To register for the microchip clinic, interested parties can call 802-388-1100. The cost is $35.
