There is a clinic happening in Guelph that can help owners be reunited with their lost pets much sooner.
Pet owners in Guelph and Wellington County can bring their dogs and cats in to be fitted with a microchip at the Guelph Humane Society at 190 Hanlon Creek Blvd. this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The chip implanted in the animal is the size of a grain of rice and contains the contact information for the pet and the owner.
“Currently, only 14 per cent of stray animals that come into GHS are microchipped” said Lisa Veit, executive director of the humane society.
“We implore pet owners to consider microchipping as a large number of dogs and cats that go missing each year in Guelph-Wellington have no form of identification.”
