Myakka City, FL – A free microchip clinic will be held at Donte’s Den, 6801 283rd St E, Myakka City, from 10 am to 2 pm, on Saturday, July 21st. The microchip will include a free lifetime registration in the microchip company’s recovery service. Why? Because microchips are a permanent form of identification if your pet is ever lost or stolen.
Through a grant provided to Animal Network by the Manatee Community Foundation from the Bill and Maryann Vinall Fund, Lost Pet Services will be offering this clinic to support the microchipping of pets in Manatee County. To increase the chance pets can be reunited with their owners if lost, microchips will be provided to local pet owners free of charge.
Animal Network in collaboration with Lost Pet Services received this grant to support microchipping efforts in our county. Donte’s Den has generously donated the use of their clinic facility and the Animal Rescue Coalition will be handing out discount vouchers for $25 spay/neuter as well as discounts on vaccines, procedures and tests.
“We want to make sure every pet that is lost can quickly be reunited with their owners and keep them out of our overcrowded shelters. If all lost pets had microchips and a collar with ID and license tags, these pets would be getting a free ride home from our local animal control officers and our shelters would have more room for those pets truly in need,” said Patty Giarrusso, President of Lost Pet Services.

Microchips are the best method to prove ownership and help get your pet home safe if they are ever lost. Microchips make it easy to reconnect lost pets with their owners. If pets are picked up by Animal Control, a microchip becomes a free ride home, but it must be registered and have up-to-date information.
