Microchipping is highly recommended as it is among the most effective methods of getting pets reunited with owners if they escape or go missing.

A microchip recently came in handy in the case of Pilot the cat who was missing for 10 years and survived the Tubbs Fire in Santa Rosa. When he was brought in to the veterinarians with severe burns, they checked for a microchip and it led them to his family. Read the story here.
The shelter is also offering free adoptions for veterans all month long and has $25 for all others.
