$10 Microchips at BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions Through April 20
BARC Animal Shelter and Adoptions is celebrating National Pet ID week by reducing pet microchip prices to $10 through Sunday, April 20 at its adoption facility and wellness center located at 3200 Carr Street, Houston 77026. BARC is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday - Wednesday and Friday - Sunday. All walk-ins are welcome.
Microchipping is a technology that is virtually painless for pets and creates a permanent method of identification. A small computer microchip about the size of a grain of rice is embedded under a pet's skin, usually between the shoulder blades.
The chip contains a unique ID number that provides a permanent record of a pet's identity and access to contact information for the owner in the event a pet is lost. It is important to keep contact information current.
A microchip should be one of several forms of identification on a pet. Pets should also have an ID and pet license tag; lost pets that have all of these forms of ID and a microchip have the greatest chance of being returned to their loving homes and families.
