The best way to ensure the quick and safe return of your pet is to have them microchipped with up-to-date information and wearing visible ID tags on their collar. To help ensure our community has access to microchip and vaccine services, Post Falls Animal Shelter is partnering with Better Together Animal Alliance (BTAA) to host a free microchip and vaccination clinic on October 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Post Falls Animal Shelter.
Implanted microchips can serve as an important security measure to help ensure that a pet is returned home, even if a collar and tag are lost. Veterinarians, shelters, and animal control professionals are able to scan these chips and track down each pet’s registered owner. BTAA and Post Falls Animal Shelter will have trained staff and volunteers on-site to help pet owners register their current information as part of the microchipping process and facilitate pet vaccinations. In addition to providing these free services, BTAA will also have free cat and dog food available for those in need.
For those planning to attend, please note that all dogs must be on a leash at all times, all cats must be in carriers, and services are limited to the first 150 participants. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about BTAA’s services, call (208) 265-7297 ext. 100. All microchips are being provided through a generous grant from the ASPCA Northern Tier Shelter Initiative (NTSI). The no-cost vaccines are made possible through Petco Love’s new national vaccination initiative, which is providing one million more free pet vaccines for family pets in need through existing animal welfare partners, including BTAA.
