Get a $30 microchip for your dog or cat at April 2 clinic

Boston
Our family companion Boston has a microchip. Provides us peace of mind – since he loves to dash out the door!

The City of Burlington Animal Shelter invites all cat and dog owners to attend its low-cost microchip clinic on:

Date: Sat., April 2, 2016
Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Location: Burlington Animal Shelter, 2424 Industrial St.
Cost: $30 per pet (cash only)

A microchip is an easy, inexpensive way to ensure owners can be quickly reunited with their pet if they are ever separated.

The cost for a microchip is $30 per pet and only cash will be accepted. Visitors to the clinic can expect a quick and minor procedure. Dogs attending the clinic should be brought on a leash and cats placed in a carrier. The City of Burlington’s by-laws require cats to be microchipped.

Appointments for the clinic can be reserved by calling 905-335-3030. Walk-ins are also welcomed. Pet owners are asked to bring proof of up-to-date vaccinations.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Paw Fund in support of stray animals.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
