Cedar Valley Humane Society offers microchipping services to dogs and cats adopted from the shelter and to those pets already at your home.
The process is quick and easy, and for just $35 per pet, it can save a great deal of heartache. For those on an income-assistance program, the fee is $15 per pet. All microchip fees include registration of the chip for the lifetime of the pet.
The procedure to insert a microchip is quick and causes minimal discomfort. Similar to a vaccine or routine shot a microchip is inserted under the your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and contains a unique identification number that corresponds to your contact information in a central database. A microchip is not a GPS, so it cannot be used to locate your pet. But it can be used to identify him or her and facilitate a quick reunion. It’s important to keep your contact information up to date so you can be notified when your pet is found.
