Do you remember the video last week of a man reuniting with his dog after two years through the Winnebago County Animal Services?

Thanks to micro-chipping that's how his owner was found. WCAS is now offering you a way to get your pet chipped for cheap.

WREX reports that WCAS will be offering affordable low cost micro-chipping for just $5 for Winnebago County residents every Friday from 2p - 4p at their clinic at 4517 N. Main Street here in Rockford.

They entitled this once a week clinic as "Project Homeward Bound Microchip Clinic.” it will be offered on a "first-come, first-serve basis to the first 20 dogs, cats, puppies, or kittens each Friday."hip will cost only $5.

If you didn't see the story of Chaos the dog being reunited with his owner, Jose, here's the video and facebook post.

 

 

Just watching that joyful reunion brought tears to my eyes. I remember when my dog went missing for few days and when she was found I was so happy and yes I too cried.

Micro-chipping is so important to keep your animals safe. If you're in need of this service and you live in Winnebago County, I strongly suggest you take your pet to Project Homeward Bound Microchip Clinic.
