Now through December 31st, bring a new, unopened toy worth $10 or more to the TLC clinic and receive a $10 micro-chip. The toys benefit the Montgomery County Emergency Assistance program. MCEA provides emergency and preventative assistance through temporary financial assistance for rent/mortgage, utilities, childcare, prescription, and basic necessities. What a great way to help your pet and help a kiddo in need for the holidays! Micro-chips are lifetime registered with no additional fees.
Micro-chipping pets is especially important in our region of Texas. During natural disasters such as hurricanes, many pets are displaced from their homes. Collars are lost and when animals are picked up, those with micro-chips are returned to their owners first. Even without natural disasters, 1 out of every 3 pets will become lost at some point. All of our local shelters in Montgomery and Harris counties are scanning for micro-chips. Micro-chipping dogs increases their chances of getting back to their owners over 200%, micro-chipping cats increases their chances more than 2000%!
