HWAY, APRIL 8,2005
Schertz resident Sharon Hust brought Maxey to the microchipping clinic held Saturday at Pickrell Park. Following the quick and easy procedure, Animal Control Officer Zachary Douglas illustrated how the microchip scanners work.
Schertz Animal Services installs microchips in pets
SCHERTZ — Schertz Animal Services offers frequent rabies and microchip clinics for city residents, including one coming up Saturday from 1-3 p.m. at the Pickrell Park large pavilion. Often those clinics coincide with pet adoption days, but dogs, cats and other critters are available at the shelter on Borgfeld Road, as well. Rabies vaccines are required for pets, but microchips are also highly recommended. A microchip implant could mean the difference between a pet lost forever and a grateful prodigy come home.
Headier Barker, supervisor, said the microchip her agency would install for $10 is half the size of a grain of rice. Information on the chip can be transferred to a subsequent owner at no cost. It's pretty cheap insurance to make sure a lost pet is returned, she said.
“About 98 percent of the animals that come in to rescues and shelters in Texas are scanned,” Barker said.
In Schertz, Animal Services has returned five pets using the microchip system — including a Boxer that had been stolen four years previously.
For information on clinics or pet adoptions, call the shelter at (210) 658-6607.
