If your pet goes missing this winter, what are the chances it will find its way home? The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) is urging animal lovers to take precautions by ensuring that if their dog or cat becomes lost, it has the best possible chance of a safe return — by implanting a grain-sized microchip offering permanent, lifelong identification.

The OHS is holding its first microchip clinic of the year this weekend at its Champagne Avenue location. The clinic takes place as follows:

When:Sunday, January 31 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. By appointment only
Cost:$45 (incl. GST) for each animal, two for $85, three for $125 and four for $165
Where:Ottawa Humane Society 101 Champagne Avenue South, just off Carling Avenue, one block west of Preston Street

Call the OHS at 613-725-3166, ext. 221 or e-mail microchip@ottawahumane.ca to book your appointment today!

All proceeds will benefit the animals at the OHS. Animals should be in a carrier or on a leash. Owners should bring vaccination records and one piece of photo ID (for example, driver’s licence).
