DAYTON — The Humane Society of Greater Dayton will be offering free microchips to keep pets safe during the Fourth of July.
The Fourth of July can be a stressful and scary time for pets. The noise and flash of fireworks may cause them to run away or become lost in an attempt to hide.
Microchips, small chips that go under the skin, can be scanned to find your contact information if your lost pet arrives at a shelter or veterinarian’s office.
The humane society also offers several tips to keep your pet safe during the Independence Day holiday:
Beginning Tuesday, 100 free microchips will be available at the humane society’s main shelter, 1661 Nicholas Road, until they’re gone.
Microchips can be purchased throughout the year for $20.
