Placer SPCA Microchip Clinic in Auburn
Roseville, CA - Placer SPCA is holding a microchip clinic on Saturday, August 24, at the Placer SPCA in Auburn, located at 1482 Grass Valley Highway. The first 12 microchips will be given for FREE (limit of 2 per family). After the free microchips have been dispersed, microchips will be implanted for only $15.00. No appointment is necessary. Guests are asked to have all dogs on leash and all cats in carriers.
A microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, contains a code unique to every animal. Similar to a bar code, when the microchip is scanned it displays the owner's contact information.

"When a lost animal arrives at a shelter or veterinary clinic, they are immediately scanned for a microchip," said Placer SPCA CEO Leilani Fratis. "When we find a microchip and the contact information is current with the manufacturer, a lost pet can go home that same day."
The Placer SPCA recommends that every pet have an ID tag and a microchip. Even if your pet typically remains indoors, a microchip is strongly advised. Should an indoor pet get out, they can easily become disoriented and lost.
"Last year, over 2,000 lost animals were brought to our Roseville Companion Animal Care Center as strays," said Fratis. "We know most of them have people who are mourning their loss and even actively looking for them, but without identification the chances of reuniting lost pets with their families are heartbreakingly low."
If your pet already has a microchip, please be sure to keep your contact information current by calling the manufacturer if you move or change phone numbers. If you don't know the manufacturer information, come in to the Placer SPCA for a free scan. For more information, please visit www.placerspca.org or call (916) 782-7722 or (530) 885-7387.
