BCHS to Host Micro-Chipping at Event

The Bradford County Humane Society is proud to offer enrollment for this year's Micro-chipping event to be held at the Picnic With Your Pooch at the Grovedale Winery in Wyalusing on Saturday, September 7th from 12-4.

Wyalusing Valley Pet Clinic will be on hand to insert the chips. We ask that you pre-register with Jennifer at the Bradford County Humane Society by calling 570-888-2114.

The cost for the micro-chip is $35.00 and will be paid at the event.

Microchips have been particularly useful in the return of lost pets. They can also assist where the ownership of an animal is in dispute. BCHS and animal shelters across the country benefit using microchip identification products by more quickly and efficiently returning pets to their owners. When a pet can be quickly matched to its owner, the shelter avoids the expense of housing, feeding, providing medical care, and adopting the pet out.

BCHS is equipped to scan for several different forms of chips should a stray arrive at the shelter, and that is one of the first steps they take to make sure that the dog gets back to its rightful owner.
