COLLIER COUNTY DOMESTIC ANIMAL SERVICES
OFFERS A MONTH OF MICROCHIPS IN MAY
During the month of May, Collier County Domestic Animal Services (DAS) is offering microchips to pet owners for $15, including implantation and registration.
“We want to make sure that if a family pet gets lost, it makes its way back home,” said DAS Director Darcy Andrade. “This quick and easy procedure can greatly increase the chances of a happy reunion should your pet become lost.”
Microchip implantation is a simple procedure that takes just a few minutes and is similar to an animal receiving a vaccination. Once your pet has a microchip, it has a permanent ID. If the pet gets lost and brought to DAS, a veterinary office or most animal shelters, the pet will be scanned for a microchip. Once the microchip has been detected, the owner will then be contacted and can pick up their pet.
Microchips can be implanted from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday all month long at the Naples shelter, 7610 Davis Blvd., Naples, Florida 34104. Please call (239) 252-7387 (PETS) to make an appointment.
