The Cloquet Police Department is sponsoring a no-cost microchipping clinic for pet owners in Cloquet and Scanlon.

The free clinic will be held at The Pavillion at Veteran Memorial Park in Cloquet on Saturday, October 6th from 9 am to 1 pm. Pet parents must show proof of residency to get the chip and brand new ID tag for no charge.

Animal Allies Humane Society’s medical team will be there to provide the service and make custom tags for 100 pets.

Cloquet Police said in a statement, “We know that citizens of Cloquet care about their pets and we want to help provide services that protect them when we can. We’ve purchased a microchip reader already this year, and we hope the ‘Chip and Tag’ clinic will encourage people to microchip their pet, so we can help reunite them should it become necessary.”

Keep in mind that all pets must be leashed or crated, owners are responsible for picking up poo.
