Free Microchipping Clinics at DFW Animal Shelters – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Join NBC 5 as we celebrate National Pet Identification Week with our local animal shelters from our Clear the Shelters campaign. On Saturday, April 23, our local shelters will be offering free microchipping clinics at the locations listed below.

Microchip identification greatly increases the chances that a lost pet will be brought home quickly and safely. The owner can be contacted when the microchip is detected using a scanner. This process allows a lost pet to be brought home instead of going to the local animal shelter.

Microchipping a pet is a quick and unique procedure. The microchip is inserted under the skin using a needle, and it provides permanent identification for the life of the animal. The pet owner will need to include the contact information recorded with the unique microchip identification number.
