Celebrate Chip Your Pet Month with $5 Microchips from Pinal County Animal Care and Control

In honor of Chip Your Pet Month this May, Pinal County Animal Care and Control (PCACC) is offering a special promotion designed to help keep pets safe and sound at home. As a part of the nationwide awareness campaign, PCACC is providing pet microchips for just $5 throughout the month.

Microchipping is a simple, safe procedure that can dramatically increase the odds of a lost pet being reunited with its owner. These grain-of-rice-sized devices are implanted under a pet's skin and carry a unique identification number. When a lost pet is found and scanned with a special device, this number can be used to retrieve the owner's contact information from a national database.

The importance of microchipping pets cannot be overstated. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, microchipped dogs are returned to their owners 52.2% of the time, while cats go back to their homes 38.5% of the time. These figures are significantly higher than the return rates for pets without microchips.

In addition to getting your pet microchipped, it's also crucial to keep your contact information updated with the microchip company. The effectiveness of the microchip system depends entirely on accurate and up-to-date contact details.

Pinal County Animal Care and Control recognizes the value of this procedure and has thus made it a priority to offer affordable microchipping services. This May, you can ensure your pet's safety for just $5 – a small price to pay for peace of mind.

To take advantage of this opportunity, pet owners are encouraged to call 520-509-3555 to schedule a microchip appointment. This initiative is part of PCACC's ongoing commitment to the welfare and safety of all pets in Pinal County.

Let's take this opportunity to protect our furry friends and ensure they always find their way back home. Microchip your pet this May and join us in celebrating Chip Your Pet Month. Together, we can make a difference and create a safer community for all pets.
