The West Carrollton Police Department is partnering with the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center to host a free dog microchipping event Saturday, October 17, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Civic Center, 300 E. Central Ave., West Carrollton, OH 45449.

The event is for West Carrollton residents only and there are a limited number of slots available. Registration is required and can be done by contacting (937) 859-7465 by October 10. All dogs must be currently licensed.

Some benefits of microchipping your dog include:

• When a lost pet is taken to a vet or a shelter, it is scanned in case it has a microchip number. The microchip company is contacted for the owner’s information. The registered owner is then contacted.
• Most shelters, vets and many police departments have microchip scanners.
• A microchip won’t get lost or break and has its own identifying number for your pet.
• Microchipping is a quick and easy procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia.
• A microchip lasts a lifetime.
• Information can be updated anytime, anywhere if you move or if other information changes.
(Providing one or more secondary contacts such as friends or family is a good idea in case you are not readily available.)
