Join NBC 5 as we celebrate National Pet ID Week with our local animal shelters from our Clear the Shelters campaign. On Saturday, April 23, our local shelters will offer free microchip clinics in the locations listed below.

Microchip identification dramatically increases the chances of a lost pet being returned home quickly and safely. The owner can be contacted when the microchip is detected using a scanner. This process allows a lost pet to be returned home instead of going to the local animal shelter.

Getting a pet microchipped is a quick, one-time procedure. The microchip is inserted under the skin using a needle, and it provides permanent identification for the pet's life. The pet owner will need to include contact information registered with the chip's unique identification number.
