Sometimes collars fall off and animals can get lost without any visible form of identification. A microchip is a form of identification for a dog or a cat that can not be lost, worn out or removed. If your pet ever gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or a veterinary clinic, they will scan the animal to see if he or she is microchipped. And equally important is keeping your contact information up to date with your microchip company. Many times animals come into shelters with microchips; however, their owner's contact information is not current and the animal must wait to be reunited with his or her owner.
If your pet is in need of a DHLPP (distemper parvo) vaccination, a bordetella vaccination or FVRCP (upper respiratory) vaccination please call our shelter. We do both dog and cat vaccinations when we have our Vaccination Clinics. These vaccinations are only $8 each. Please call our shelter at (559) 636-4050 for the dates and locations of our vaccination clinics. If we do not have any vaccination clinics scheduled please check out one of our Shelter Partners. VIP Petcare has vaccination clinics in both Visalia and Tulare.
Here at the Tulare County Animal Services we do microchipping for only $20 during our regular business hours. No appointment is necessary. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.
