Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back foundation is partnering with the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Nevada SPCA) to help keep pets safe and off the streets of Las Vegas by hosting a free microchip and ID tag clinic. The event will take place on November 19 from 8:30 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. at its local shelter.
The free microchip and ID tag clinic’s entrance can be found at the shelter’s pet admissions door shelter (5375 S. Procyon Street, Suite 108, Las Vegas, NV 89118). Additionally, dogs are required to be on a leash and cats must be in pet carriers.
This first-time event was created after it received hundreds of calls about stray dogs last month when the municipal shelter limited its intake due to a pneumovirus. The strays were running the streets with no collars, no tags, and were not microchipped– making it hard to reconnect owners with their pets.
Pet owners can register now at nevadaspca.org/pet-microchipping. Appointment slots are limited to three pets per household.
