People who live in Snohomish County can get free microchips for their cats and dogs during the Everett Mutt Strut at Langus Riverfront Park between 10 a.m. and noon Saturday.
Volunteer veterinarians and veterinary technicians perform the procedure. There is no limit of pets per person but no other species will be chipped. Cats must be in a carrier and dogs must be on a leash.
The chip records are kept by county government. The chips are funded by the county’s Animal Benefit Bequest Fund.
