Animal Services Offering Free Microchips to the First 100 Pets Sunday

This Sunday, El Paso Animal Services will be offering free microchips to the first 100 pets that visit them at Tierra Buena Park.

Each year, hundreds of pets go missing in far-east El Paso, and the Animal Services Animal Protection team is addressing this by providing families and pets with free microchips.

Pet owners must bring a valid photo ID, and pets are required to be on a leash.

Microchips will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Animal Services is nearing its goal of having a 90% live-release rate of its pets in the facility, but despite this success, a large number of lost pets continue to enter the Animal Services Center every month. When pet owners keep their pets in their homes, they are helping El Paso with its goal of becoming a “no-kill” community.

Additional microchip events will be held throughout the fall and winter months.

To find out when the next microchip event will be, ‘like’ Animal Services on Facebook.
