What: Veterinarians from Central Veterinary Associates, P.C. and the Bayside Animal Clinic will be offering a low-cost microchip clinic for pets during Friends of Totten Parks' "Family Fun Day." Owners can have their pets professionally implanted with a tracking micro-chip from Home Again, for a small donation for $25. All of the money raised will go towards Friends of Fort Totten Parks and NYC Veterinary Emergency Response Team.
In exchange for a donation, owners will have their pets professionally implanted with a Home Again microchip. All the money raised will go to the Alley Pond Environmental Center and the New York City Veterinary Emergency Response Team.
The veterinarians emphasize that all pet owners should have their pets microchipped. This ensures their pet's health and safety so that they can be found if they run away or if they are taken by a stranger. Having a pet microchipped is a successful step in responsible pet ownership.
