DANE COUNTY (WKOW) — National Pet ID Week begins April 14 and the Dane County Humane Society is celebrating by offering reduced rates for microchips and ID tags.
Pet experts say having both a microchip and an ID tag is the best way to reunite you and your cat or dog if you get separated.
“The reality is that accidents do happen, and when they do, we want your pets to have the best chance at returning home,” says Marissa DeGroot, DCHS Public Relations Coordinator.
In 2018, more than 2,500 stray animals were brought to DCHS. 816 of those animals were reunited with their families thanks in part to microchips and ID tags.
If you stop by the DCHS main shelter from April 14 through April 20 you’ll receive a discount.
$8 Personalized ID Tag
No appointment necessary
Available at DCHS’s Main Shelter:
