Having a lost pet can be one of the most terrifying experiences a pet lover can go through. This Sunday, if you're one of the first 100, you can get yours chipped for free!
This Sunday, beginning at 10 am, the Idaho Humane Society will be chipping the first 100 dogs to show up at their Dorman campus, with help from our friends at Treasure Valley Subaru. According to their Facebook event invite, "Join us on Sunday, March 28th between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at the IHS Dorman Campus: 4775 W Dorman Street, Boise, Idaho 83705.
Be one of the first 100 guests and your pet’s microchip is free courtesy of Treasure Valley Subaru. Microchips are available at a discounted rate of $20/each after the free supply is exhausted." They also request that all dogs are brought in on a leash, and that all cats are in a crate.
Having a registered microchip in your pet can make a tremendous difference if they ever get out. We had a pet get out this past December and it's a horrifying experience; you worry about the weather, you worry about them getting hit by a car, getting attacked by other animals, or just never finding their way home. We were lucky to get ours back, thankfully but that's certainly not always the case. Having your pet chipped and registered can make it as simple as getting a scan and a phone call if someone tracks down your pet. And if you have an opportunity to get it for free, you might as well, right?
