Lake Humane Society to host second Microchip Clinic Sunday

Lake Humane Society will hold its second Microchip Clinic from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at its facility, 7564 Tyler Blvd., Mentor.

For $25 per animal, a trained member of the organization will implant a permanent 24-Hour Pet Watch Microchip between the shoulder blades under the pet’s skin.

The procedure is almost painless, like a vaccination, according to 24PetWatch, which staffs the recovery service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Lake Humane Society calculates a third of all pets will be lost in their lifetime, and some will be trapped by city or area trappers without their owners’ knowledge. Animals brought to the organization are immediately scanned for microchips to ensure a speedy reunion if its family can be identified.

For more information call Lake Humane Society at 440-951-6122.
