Humane Society offers $10 microchips during Be Kind To Animals Week

The IWV Humane Society in cooperation with the Ridgecrest Animal Shelter will offer microchips for community pets at the discounted price of just $10, cash only, including a lifetime registration.

This special offer will be available only during Be Kind to Animals Week, May 6-11, when the shelter is open for business. All dogs must be on leashes and all cats in carriers. No appointment is necessary, but please allow about 15 minutes to fill out the paperwork.

The Ridgecrest Animal Shelter is located at 411 San Bernardino Blvd. and business hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The shelter is closed on Thursdays and Sundays.

For more information please call 760-499-5190 when the shelter is open. This Be Kind to Animals Week special is courtesy of the IWV Humane Society. A microchip could be a pet’s ticket home if he/she ever gets lost. That’s a real kindness.

The IWV Humane Society is a United Way member agency.
