Microchip clinic this Sunday

If your pet goes missing this summer, what are the chances it will find its way home? The Ottawa Humane Society is urging animal owners 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 a microchip clinic this Sunday, August 7 at 245 West Hunt Club Road between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. - by appointment only.

The cost of microchipping is $50 for one animal, $25 for each additional pet.

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).
