Microchip event to help area animal group

Organization says millions of cats and dogs reported missing each year


On Saturday, Aug. 10, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., the Emergency Animal Response Service (EARS) will hold a pet microchip clinic at the Trumbull Animal Shelter located at 324 Church Hill Road in Trumbull, where certified members of the EARS Team will offer complete microchip service for a one-time cost of $20.

The cost includes chip implanting, lifetime registration in the PetLink National Database as well as the EARS Connecticut State Database, and a pet ID card and collar tag. $5 from the cost of each microchip at this event will be donated to the Trumbull Animal Group.

Trumbull-Pet-CatEach microchip is roughly the size of a grain of rice, and the process of implanting is similar to a pet receiving a vaccination, according to a press release. The individual microchip is encoded with a unique number and implanted just under the skin in the scruff of the neck.

Dogs must be on leashes at all times, and cats must be in sturdy carriers.
