Get a $30 microchip for your dog or cat at April 2 clinic

Our family companion Boston has a microchip. Provides us peace of mind – since he loves to dash out the door!

The City of Burlington Animal Shelter invites all cat and dog owners to attend its low-cost microchip clinic on:

Date: Sat., April 2, 2016
Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Location: Burlington Animal Shelter, 2424 Industrial St.
Cost: $30 per pet (cash only)

A microchip is an easy, inexpensive way to ensure owners can be quickly reunited with their pet if they are ever separated.

The cost for a microchip is $30 per pet and only cash will be accepted. Visitors to the clinic can expect a quick and minor procedure. Dogs attending the clinic should be brought on a leash and cats placed in a carrier. The City of Burlington’s by-laws require cats to be microchipped.

Appointments for the clinic can be reserved by calling 905-335-3030. Walk-ins are also welcomed. Pet owners are asked to bring proof of up-to-date vaccinations.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Paw Fund in support of stray animals.

Adapted from a city of Burlington press release.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
