I was sent this notice-- so all of you in the Richmond, VA area whose dogs/cats are not microchipped, here's your chance. I can't stress enough how important microchips are. And remember, they can shift in body-- some even moving to the arm area! All of our foster dogs are microchipped-- and all my own dogs are microchipped, too!
Leo has a microchip!
So does Heather.
Janey had a microchip when she came into rescue, but it had never been registered. MAKE SURE YOU REGISTER YOUR DOG'S MICROCHIP. Just having one does no good-- they have to know who to contact. This can be done on-line once you have the chip placed in your pet. Your vet may do the registering, but check to make sure.
Chubby got a microchip when he had surgery-- but it can be done at any time.
Sweet Anna has a microchip-- we never want this sweetheart to be lost and not have a way home. Check out the microchip clinic in Richmond, below.

The Richmond SPCA is hosting an affordable Microchip Clinic on May 10 between 4 and 7 p.m. The cost is $20 per pet, and our staff will complete the necessary registration paperwork for each microchip. A microchip is implanted under your pet’s skin and provides permanent identification if your pet is ever lost or strays from home. Included in the fee is lifetime registration with the 24PetWatch database. Government animal control facilities scan stray pets for microchips upon intake into their shelters, improving the likelihood pets will be reunited with their families.The Clinic is open to pets of residents of the City of Richmond and the counties of Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover and Henrico. To pre-register your pet(s) for this service, please click here. Advance registration is available online only via credit or check card. An optional engraved ID tag may also be purchased online. Walk-in customers between 4 and 7 p.m. on May 10 will be provided with microchip service on a first come, first serve basis.
Thank you for taking this great step toward protecting your precious pets. We look forward to seeing you at our humane center (2519 Hermitage Road) on May 10 between 4 and 7 p.m. and encourage you to share this important message with fellow animal lovers. For questions related to this offering, please e-mail Kate Hall, manager of veterinary services, at
