Why should I microchip my pet? Does Beaumont Animal Care administer microchips?

Microchipping your pet is the best way to ensure that your missing cat/dog will find its way back to you. A microchip is administered like a vaccine between the shoulder blades and is roughly the size of a grain of rice. It is not like a GPS tracker but instead carries your information so that you can be contacted once the animal has been picked up by an Animal Care officer or found by a citizen and taken to be scanned. All animals are scanned for a microchip before entering the facility in hopes of reuniting them with their families. Beaumont Animal Care microchips for a fee of $15 every day during normal business hours. No appointment is necessary.
