Glynn County Animal Control will offer free microchipping for dogs and cats in a partnership with No Kill Glynn County and the Wayne and Glynn Surrounding Rescue (WAGS).
The events, which are sponsored by PetSmart Charities, will be held Saturday, November 10, 2018, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Glynn Place parking lot in front of JCPenney and Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Mary Ross Waterfront Park Holiday Market. More dates will be announced for 2019.
The free microchipping will be available for up to four pets from a Glynn County household and includes free lifetime registration in the PetLink national microchip database. Proof of Glynn County residency will be required and pets must be on a leash or in a carrier.
Dogs and cats who are brought to shelters and veterinarians have a significantly higher change to be reunited with their owners. The small microchip is injected under the skin of a pet in seconds and contains a unique identification number for each pet that is scanned and links to owner data.
