If you haven't placed a microchip in your dog or cat yet, you'll have the perfect opportunity to get it done this weekend in Duluth.

Animal Allies has announced a Microchip Clinic this Saturday, January 25 from 10:00 a.m. to Noon. The cost is $25 and there is no appointment necessary.  Just bring your pet to the Animal Allies Humane Society, at 4006 Airport Road in Duluth.

Putting a microchip in your pet is a very low risk procedure that could help reunite you with your pet should they run off and wind up in an animal shelter or veterinary hospital.  The device itself is no bigger than a grain of rice.

According to PetFinder.com:

When a microchip scanner is passed over the skin of a microchipped pet, the implanted microchip emits an RF (radio frequency) signal. The scanner reads the microchip's unique ID code. ... Most animal shelters and veterinary hospitals in the U.S. have global scanners that read pet microchips from most manufacturers.
