TUCSON, Ariz. — TUCSON, Ariz. - Pet owners seeking a convenient way to get microchips for their animals can visit the Pima Animal Care Center shelter at 4000 N. Silverbell Road from 3 to 5 p.m. June 16 through July 3 to receive a free microchip for their pets.

This drive-through clinic provides not only a free microchip but also a chance to update your pet's license for a standard licensing fee of $19, as long as the owner has proof of a current rabies vaccine.

In honor of National Microchipping Month and PACC's efforts to support pet ownership in the community, PACC is holding several free, drive-through microchip and vaccine clinics. A licensed veterinarian will be administering the vaccines and microchips.

PACC says microchipping your pet is important and pets often get scared during the Fourth of July fireworks, and can run away.

Any pets adopted from PACC all come spayed or neutered, with up to date vaccinations, a microchip, and an additional free vet visit. For more information on this event and any of the upcoming PACC events, visit this site.
