Pet microchip event tomorrow in Lancaster


At Los Angeles Animal Care and Control

Best Friends Animal Society, Wallis Annenberg PetSpace, and Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control (LAACC) are joining forces to host a free pet microchip and vaccine clinic for the local community on Saturday, June 17,  from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Los Angeles Animal Care and Control, 5210 W. Avenue L, in Lancaster.

The event is being held prior to the Fourth of July, which is traditionally the holiday when shelters see the highest influx of stray or missing pets.

People who bring their cats or dogs to LAACC during that time will be eligible to have their pets microchipped, as well as receive any of the below vaccines:





Best Friends released its annual data report this week which gives the most accurate and comprehensive national overview of the number of dogs and cats that enter and exit shelters in a given year.  California ranks #2 in the country for pet shelter deaths for the third consecutive year.

Individuals can help save lives by choosing to adopt from a shelter or rescue group instead of purchasing from a breeder or store, spay or neuter their pets, foster kittens or an adult dog, volunteer, donate, and advocate for proven lifesaving programming for pets.
