A microchip is a tiny computer chip, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted painlessly beneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. It has a unique number used to identify animals when scanned by a shelter or vet. The number is used to find the owner's contact information in a registry.
Does my pet need a microchip if it already has an ID tag?
Lost pets often lose their ID tag and can only be identified by their microchip.
How much does it cost?
Grand Prairie Animal Services Adoption Center will microchip your pet at the low cost of $15.00 per animal. There is no additional fee to register the microchip in the Found Animals Registry. No appointment needed.
Grand Prairie Animal Services Adoption Center strongly recommends that pet owners consider microchipping their pets.
