“Microchipping is one of the first things we look for in found pets,” said PCAS Director Mike Shumate. “Microchips are not tracking devices, but they store your contact information, so we know who to call if your pet comes to our shelter as a stray.”

In addition to free microchips, PCAS is partnering with Pet Hub to give the gift of collars and tags to every attendee to even further your pet’s chances of finding their way home.

Veterinarians will implant a limit of three pet microchips per vehicle while supplies last. All cats must be in carriers.
