Micro-Chipping

At LCHS, we micro-chip all of our dogs before leaving the facility.  Why do we do this?  Pets occasionally get separated from their owners.  Sometimes their identification tags can get lost during this separation time.  Since our pets cannot tell us their names and addresses, the Avid microchip does it for them!

This simple procedure insures that you will be reunited with your beloved family member as soon as possible.  Lost dogs taken to Livingston County Animal Control are routinely scanned upon arrival.  Any dog that is taken to the Livingston County Humane Society or other local veterinary clinic is scanned immediately and owners are notified that their dog is safe and at the shelter or vet clinic ready to be reunited with its family.

Dogs adopted through LCHS are automatically registered with our shelter.  LCHS encourages all adoptive families to have the registration transferred to their names.  Avid charges a fee of $25.00 to have this transfer made.
