Nevada SPCA Free Microchip Clinic
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back Presents
Nevada SPCA Free ID Tag and Microchip Event
November 19th, 2022 | 8:30am – 4:00pm
Identification tags and microchipping your pet has never been more important. Last month when the municipal shelter limited its intake due to a pneumovirus, Nevada SPCA received hundreds of calls about stray dogs that were running the streets with no collars and tags and no microchips. Thanks to our generous sponsor Lerner and Rowe Gives Back, our first free ID tag and microchip clinic is to help keep those dogs and cats safe.

Benefits of microchipping your pet
A microchip is the only permanent identification form that can reunite you with your beloved pet. Unlike collars and ID tags, which can break, or become worn and illegible, a microchip will last for the life of your pet. In addition, a microchip does not share personal information with anyone who finds your furry pal. When scanned, a chip emits only a unique identification number, which is then used for identifying your pet with the microchip company. Rather than giving the Good Samaritan your contact info, the microchip company notifies you personally that your missing pet has been found.
Other key benefits of microchipping include:
- It’s quick and easy — Microchip insertion is quick and easy—most pets don’t notice it any more than a vaccination.
- Sedation is not necessary — There is no need for sedation or general anesthesia for microchip insertion; however, we can microchip your pet during a surgical procedure to ensure the process is entirely pain-free.
- It’s really small — A microchip is tiny—about the size of a grain of rice. It won’t bother you or your pet, but it could provide the only link for a happy reunion.
