Microchip and Nail Clinics

Join us at one of our upcoming Microchip and Nail Clinics. Animal Humane Society staff will trim your pet's nails, and upon your request, implant a microchip.

Microchips are an implanted form of identification. This inexpensive chip — the size of a grain of rice — is implanted between your pet’s shoulder blades just under the skin and is equipped with an individual scanning number. That number is then listed with your contact information in a nation-wide database that can be accessed by veterinarians and animal shelters.

Anal gland expression is also offered.
