From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the AWLA offices (2650 S. Arlington Mill Drive), the organization will be offering $30 microchipping and $10 rabies shots.
AWLA recommends microchips for dogs and cats to help with identification should they ever become lost.
“Each year thousands of lost and abandoned animals are taken in by shelters and humane societies across the country. Some of these animals never make it home because they can’t be identified,” the AWLA notes. ”Microchipping offers pet owners the only truly permanent method of identifying your pet and linking the animal back to you, the owner.”
Six other rabies and microchip clinics are planned through the end of 2012.
