The Montgomery County Humane Society will hold clinics from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday and Oct. 13 at which pet owners can have a microchip inserted under their dog’s or cat’s skin to help find it if it’s missing.
The clinics will be held at Aspin Hill Memorial Park at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Aspen Hill Road in Silver Spring.
A microchip is the size of a grain of rice and can identify an animal when it is read by a scanning device.
The cost of inserting a microchip in each animal is $35. Selected pets also will be available for adoption. For more information, call 240-773-5960 or visit www.mchumane.org/preventionisthebeststrategy.shtml
