Doggie Day Spa & Pet ID Clinic

The Humane Society of Calloway County and Murray State
University's Animal Health Technology/Pre-veterinary Club are hosting a Doggie Day Spa and Pet ID Clinic on Sat., Nov. 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Carmen Pavilion. Carmen Pavilion is on College Farm Road directly across from Calloway County High School.

Murray State animal health technology and pre-veterinary students will bathe a dog for $7, clean ears & trim nails for $4 or provide “the works,” bath, ear cleaning and nail trim, for $10.

The Humane Society will microchip dogs for $10 each. A microchip the size of a grain of rice is inserted between the shoulder blades of a dog in a relatively painless and quick procedure. Each microchip transponder has a unique number which enables a shelter or veterinary clinic to scan the animal for this number which will be registered with a national database allowing the owner to be contacted when the pet is found. Local veterinary offices, the animal shelter and Humane Society have scanners to read these microchips, as do most across the country.

The Humane Society will also engrave custom pet ID tags at the Doggie Day Spa for $3 each and photograph pets for their free Lost Pet Photo Registry. A selection of dog collars, leashes and harnesses will be available along with homemade dog treats and dog toys. The Society will also have their full-color 2013Pet Calendar for sale for $10 each.

The mission of The Humane Society of Calloway County is to extend humane education, teaching kindness and concern for animals and humans alike; to relieve suffering and prevent cruelty to animals; to increase awareness of pet overpopulation and work to reduce it; to enrich our community through the promotion of quality of life for animals and people.
