Furry Friends will be offering discounted Avid FriendChip ID microchipping for dogs and cats on  Saturday, September 9 from 9am to 2pm. The chips will be implanted in your pet by our volunteer licensed vet tech for only $20 (a $50 value). We will complete and submit the registration paperwork. Unlike other brands, there are no annual fees. Cats often do not wear collars, and may not have any other form of ID. A recent study showed that less than 2% of cats without microchips were returned home. However, if a cat is microchipped, the return-to-owner rate is 20 times higher than if the cat was not microchipped. This unique permanent identification gives your lost pet a much better chance of coming home.

Furry Friends volunteers and the cats will be available Saturday from 9am-4pm. Come on out to meet the cats and volunteers or to learn more about the care of cats and the mission of Furry Friends.

Furry Friends is a nonprofit, all volunteer, no kill, cat adoption organization in Vancouver, WA. Its mission is to help homeless, relinquished and abused cats by providing spaying and neutering, medical care and foster shelter for as long as it takes to find their forever home.
