VVlogo1By Staff Reports

(Victorville)– The City of Victorville Animal Care and Control Division and the Victor Valley Animal Protective League are offering a low cost dog microchip clinic on Saturday, November 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the City of Victorville Public Works Yard located at 14177 McArt Road, Victorville.

The Microchip Clinic is for dogs currently licensed in the City of Victorville. The first 100 licensed dogs will receive the microchip for the low cost of $6.00.  After the first 100 dogs, the cost per microchip will be $10.00.  This is a cash only event, and all dogs must be crated or leashed under the control of an adult.

Microchips  are  about  the  size  of  a  grain  of  rice  and are  inserted  under  the  skin  with  a  simple  shot  and unlike  tags  and  collars  cannot  be  lost  or  removed.  Microchips  can  quickly  help identify  an owner when a pet  is  lost and  ends  up  at  a  shelter.

In addition to the low cost microchips, Victor Valley Animal Protection League will be giving away $50 spay/neuter vouchers to the first 100 dogs currently licensed in the City of Victorville.
