Thanks to a generous grant from ASPCA and Subaru Loves Pets, Friends of Sangamon County Animal Control is offering a free microchip clinic on Nov 3rd. Friends of SCAC know that sometimes dogs and cats get out, and we want to make sure they find their way home. There is nothing sadder than seeing a well taken care of animal at the shelter that is scared and just wants their family. With the help of the ASPCA and Subaru Loves Pets, we hopefully will be able to help more animals go home!
There is no limit to the amount of family pets that you can bring to the event, there is nothing you need to do to qualify, and everyone is welcome! Microchips will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please have your dogs on leashes, and your cats safely contained in a crate.
