Upcoming Charleston Dog Show Includes Microchip Clinic

The Pet Care Place will provide a microchip clinic at The Charleston Dog Show
in Marion Square on May 6th.

The Pet Care Place, an affordable spay/neuter clinic in Ladson, SC, will conduct a microchip clinic for dogs and cats at The Charleston Dog Show on Saturday, May 6 , 2005, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The $30 fee will include the implantation and registration fee for Home Again ® Pet Recovery Service microchips.

The Pet Care Place is providing this service for the first time at The Charleston Dog Show in 2006 as a direct response to the overwhelming number of pets unable to be reunited with their owners after Hurricane Katrina due to a lack of permanent identification.

Every coastal South Carolina pet owner's hurricane preparedness plan should include having his/her pet microchipped or making sure that the chip contact information is correct if the pet is already microchipped. Since the 2006 hurricane season starts June 1, this will be a convenient opportunity to have the family pet microchipped.
