Hogs for Paws at Stans Harley Davidson, dog/cat microchipping available

posted by Session Placeholder in charity event.

Volunteers For Animals will be offering a microchip clinic during Hogs for Paws at Stan’s Harley Davidson from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13th. The motorcycle dealership is located at 4425 W. Saile Drive in the Town of Batavia.
Cost of microchipping is $30 per animal, which includes the injection, a collar ID tag and national registration. Accepted payment is either cash or checks (made out to Volunteers For Animals), sorry no credit cards. No preregistration necessary.
Each dog or cat must be accompanied by someone who can control it. Cats MUST be in carriers. You will need an email address for registration purposes. Free registration is done through FoundAnimals.org
What is a microchip?
The microchip is a tiny computer chip which has an identification number programmed into it and is encapsulated within a biocompatible material. The whole device is small enough to fit inside a hypodermic needle and can be simply injected under the skin of our pets, where it will stay for the life of the animal.
This provides a permanent, positive identification which cannot be lost, altered or intentionally removed – a safe, simple and inexpensive way to protect your pet against loss or theft. The computer memory in the microchip contains a unique number — no two animals will ever have the same number. A radio signal is used to read this number through the skin of your pet. It is routine for animal shelters and veterinarian offices to scan pets for microchips.

Event Date and Time: 
Saturday, August 13, 2016 - 11:00am to 2:00pm
Location: 
Stans Harley Davidson @ 4425 W Saile Dr, Batavia, NY 14020, USA
