Adoption Day & Pet I.D. Clinic in Murray

The Humane Society of Calloway County will have a Dog Adoption Day and Pet I.D. Clinic at Orscheln’s Farm and Home on Sat., June 11 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Adoptable dogs will be on hand along with information on adoptable cats.

The Humane Society will microchip pets for $10 and engrave custom pet ID tags for $3. Microchips are a permanent way of identifying their dog or cat by implanting a grain-of-rice-sized microchip under the pet’s skin.

Custom identification tags will be made for $3 each. The Humane Society strongly recommends both an identification tag as well as the microchip. Statistics indicate that the overwhelming majority of animals that enter shelters have no form of identification and make it almost impossible to reunite the animal with its caretakers.

Digital photographs will also be taken of each animal for the Humane Society’s FREE Lost Pet Photo Registry. The photo is kept on file in the unfortunate event that the animal gets lost or separated from its owner.

The Humane Society asks that dogs be brought on leashes and cats in carriers.

To see the Humane Society’s adoptable pets and for more information on pet identification, visit www.forthepets.org, call the Humane Society of Calloway County at 270-759-1884 or email humanesociety@murray-ky.net. You can also visit our office at 607 Poplar Street Suite A-1.
