CASA Free Microchip Clinic
CASA, the Camano Animal Shelter Association, is having a free microchip clinic from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m Saturday at the shelter on East Camano Drive.
Thanks to donors, the free microchip clinic is available to the public. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t be removed and add a lifetime of additional security. If your pet goes missing, a microchip may be the only thing left linking them to you.
The clinic is for cats and dogs only. Cats must arrive in a carrier and dogs must be leashed.
