You can stop by Adopt & Shop, located at 4235 Sepulveda Boulevard (on the corner of Sepulveda and Culver) in Culver City, California, any time during regular store hours. No appointment is necessary.
The microchip process takes less than ten minutes and an Adopt & Shop associate will complete the registration for free in the Found Animals Registry while you wait. You will also get a username, password and instructions on how to update your pet’s microchip registration should you ever change addresses.
All Adopt & Shop associates performing the microchipping have received over 100 hours of hands-on animal and medical care training.
The cost of the microchip is $25. Over the course of your pet’s life, this can break down to $2.50 a year to protect your pet for the next 10 years!
One common misconception is that a microchip is large and square like a computer chip. Actually, it is about the size of a grain of rice. Because of its small size, the injection is very similar to receiving a vaccination and there is no recovery time.
If you have been thinking about microchipping your pet, we have a lot of information available and we urge you to read through our previous Microchip Monday posts.
