Give your pet the gift of permanent identification by registering for the Microchip clinic on Sunday, June 14, 2015 11:00am to 1:00pm.There are numerous pets that come into the Kingston Humane Society as lost or stray animals. Help make sure your pet finds its way home by getting it micro-chipped. A microchip provides an easy way for your pet to be returned to you should it become lost or injured. When an animal arrives at the Kingston Humane Society it is scanned by an electronic scanner that can read microchips and thereby determine who the owner is.
“A microchip implant gives your pet a unique number and provides accurate identification of a pet. Proper identification is especially important in cases where ownership is in question or a pet’s identity is in question” says Connie Ball, Executive Director of the Kingston Humane Society. “Microchips have a distinct advantage over tattoos and collars. Collars can be easily removed or lost, while tattoos can become illegible and information retrieval can be slow or impossible due to incomplete record keeping.”
The Microchip Clinic hours will run from 10am to 1pm at the Kingston Humane Society, located at 1 Binnington Court. The cost will be $40 per animal. Limited appointments are available, pre-registration and advance payment is required by phone or at the shelter. Call the Kingston Humane Society 613-546-1291 to book your appointment. Please note that KHS is unable to refund for cancellations for missed appointments. Appointments are for June 14th, 2014 only.
