Homeward Bound, the Humane Society in Addison County, will conduct Open Door Microchip Clinics throughout the year with the first one this Saturday.
A microchip is a small electronic chip that contains an owner’s contact information and is inserted under the skin between a pet’s shoulder blades and can be scanned in case a pet is lost or injured.
The clinic is open to both dogs and cats and costs $35. The clinics will be held on Saturdays at Homeward Bound, 236 Boardman Street, Middlebury. All dogs should be on leash and cats in carriers. Call 388-1100 to pre-register. The service will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Saturday’s clinic will be from 10 a.m. to noon. Future dates, same time, are March 10, May 19, July 14, Sept. 15, Nov. 10.
