Joplin Humane Society offering $10 micro-chips for pets for one day only

Updated:

News release from the Joplin Humane Society:

We want to help keep your pet safe & sound during this 4th of July season

During the 4th of July season, more strays come in to the Joplin Humane Society (JHS) than any other time of the year. Because of this, JHS has decided to hold a low-cost micro-chip clinic on Saturday, June 29, 2013 from 11am – 4pm at the shelter, located at: 140 E. Emperor Lane, Joplin, MO 64801. For that day only, all micro-chips will cost $10 each.

Fourth of July celebrations are great fun for people, however, with the four-state heat, the loud noises and the flashing lights, our pets can become extremely stressed and run off looking for a quiet, safe place to hide. We recommend that during Holiday celebrations (or anytime you have neighbors shooting off fireworks!) that your pets be kept safely inside in a quiet room without access to "an escape route" like a gate or back door.

We recognize that no safety precaution is 100%, and for this reason, identification is critical. If your pet has a micro-chip and arrives at a shelter, veterinarian or animal control facility, a quick scan will get your pet quickly home to you.

Getting your pet micro-chipped is quick and relatively painless; it is similar to them getting a vaccine. Once the chip is implanted and registered, it is good forever. You will even have the ability to update personal information should you move or change phone numbers. Despite popular rumor, microchips are NOT a tracking device like GPS, they only serve as a link to you via a scanner.

The Microchip Clinic will be first come, first served in the shelter lobby, no appointment is necessary. All dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in carriers. There is no limit on the number of pets that you can have micro-chipped for this low price.
