PERRY — Going to the Dogs Rescue is sponsoring a low cost microchip and vaccination clinic and bake sale.
The vaccination clinic and bake sale will take place at at Perry’s Village Park at the Fireman’s Recreational Hall on June 4, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm.
The microchip and vaccination clinic will provide pet owners the opportunity to microchip their pets or vaccinate against Distemper Parvo.
“We do feel that it is very important for dogs to have microchips because dogs get lost all the time,” said Michelle Preston, Events Coordinator for Going to the Dogs Rescue.
The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the animal’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is quick and virtually painless. The microchip will stay with the animal for its lifetime.
Microchips are $20 per animal, a $5 discount will be given to any previous Going to the Dogs adopter.
If an animal is ever lost, a veterinarian or shelter provider can scan the animal for a microchip and will receive contact information for the owner.
Microchips and vaccines are given by a licensed veterinary technician at a fraction of the cost veterinarians charge. Please bring any prior records.
“If anyone adopts an animal from us, the microchip cost is included in the adoption cost,” said Preston.
Going to the Dogs Rescue is a non-profit organization that solely operates on donations and fundraisers.
“We are hoping to find a place in Geneseo, where we can have these events,” said Preston.
