Protect your pet with a $30 microchip event
You know the stress that comes trying to find your lost Appleby Line pet. Now the City of Burlington Animal Shelter has a cheap $30 solution.
The shelter invites all cat and dog owners to attend its low-cost microchip clinic on Saturday, April 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Burlington Animal Shelter, 2424 Industrial St.
“In addition to a dog licence, a microchip is an easy, inexpensive way to ensure owners can be quickly reunited with their pet if they are ever separated,” said Dave Lake, the city’s supervisor of animal services.
The cost for a microchip is $30 per pet and only cash will be accepted. Visitors to the clinic can expect a quick and minor procedure. Dogs attending the clinic should be brought on a leash and cats placed in a carrier. The City of Burlington’s bylaws require cats to be microchipped.
Appointments for the clinic can be reserved by calling (905) 335-3030. Walk-ins are also welcomed. Pet owners are asked to bring proof of up-to-date vaccinations. All proceeds from the event will go to the Paw Fund in support of stray animals. For more information about the animals shelter, visit www.burlington.ca/animalshelter.
