Animal Welfare Department is offering FREE Microchipping
To residents of Albuquerque – No appointment needed
After seeing a great response from the public, The City Albuquerque of Animal Welfare Department decided to offer free microchipping services to pets every month to residents of Albuquerque.
The free service can be obtained this month from September 10 through September 15, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Westside Shelter and Eastside Shelter. No appointment is needed.
You must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license to microchip your pets. The pet's microchip will be registered to the ID holder. When you are having your animal microchipped, you will need to fill out paperwork that comes with the microchip so the microchip can be properly registered. The information that you list on these forms will be the guide to finding you if the animal is ever lost or recovered.
It is essential to ensure that the details linked to your pet’s microchip remain up-to-date so the pet can be successfully identified. Animal Welfare shelters provide all-year-round free service to check on a pet’s microchip.
