Each year, thousands of lost and abandoned animals are taken in by shelters and humane societies across North America; some never make it back home because they can't be identified. Collar tags can break or become unreadable and tattooing can become illegible. So, if you want to improve your pet's chances of getting home fast and safe in case it goes missing, microchipping is your best option.
We often host Microchipping Clinics for the public in an effort to get more dogs in our community chipped and to their owners more quickly! Check our events page to see if we have any coming up.
Benefits of Microchipping
Microchipping offers pet owners the security and peace of mind that comes from the only permanent pet identification technology and a safe and secure way to reunite you and your pet with:
Permanent pet identification: chip is inserted under the skin
Best chance of recovering your pet, should your dog get lost or stolen and recovered
Quick and painless procedure
Identification that lasts for your pet's lifetime
New Chips: $30.00
This includes the insertion of the chip and the listing of the dog's information into our database.
Updated Chips: $10.00
If you already have a microchip in your dog and just want your dog's information listed in our database, you need only pay this small processing fee.
Annual Plan for Cats $18.95
Annual Plan for Dogs $21.95
Lifetime Plan for Cats $49.95
Lifetime Plan for Dogs $59.95
Please Note: CCARE can chip your dog and/or list the dog's information into our database system, but for the chip to be registered, you must register the chip using the 24PetWatch Microchipping Website. Without registering your dog on this website, your information will not be tied to the chip.
This process is the same regardless of which microchipping company you go with, and costs will vary. If you move, you can change your information in the chip at any time by calling 24PetWatch at 866-597-2424.
