Losing a pet can be a stressful situation. The staff at The Humane Society of Greenwood will be holding a microchip clinic on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the animal shelter located at 2820 Airport Road. Professional staff will implant a microchip into your pet that will provide national registration with 24PetWatch Lost Pet Recovery Service. The service is free of charge to the first sixty pets in line according to order of arrival, and owners will be issued a number between one and sixty to redeem for their free microchip. Pet owners with multiple pets may obtain one free microchip, and each additional pet will be $15.00.
A microchip is permanently implanted in the pet and stored with a unique identification number linking the pet to the owner’s contact information, increasing the likelihood of a quick and safe return.
The Humane Society of Greenwood and 24PetWatch are committed to the safe return of your pet. Any proceeds from this event will be used to benefit the homeless animals in your community.
The Humane Society of Greenwood helps hundreds of animals find homes each year.
