The Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County will hold a micro-chipping event and bake sale. Trained shelter staff will implant the tiny, rice-sized I.D., which is encoded with a unique number and implanted just under the skin in the scruff of the neck. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds. The chip can later be detected and read by a scanner used by shelters, veterinarians and other agencies. This will greatly increase the chance that your pet will be returned to you, if ever lost or stolen. Cost is $25, and all proceeds benefit the humane society. No appointment necessary. In addition to the micro-chipping clinic, there will be fresh, homemade chocolate chip cookies and other goodies available for a donation to the shelter.
