Microchipping

Microchips work like an identification tag. But, microchips cannot fall off, get lost or be forgotten. They are tiny, harmless devices that are implanted between an animal’s shoulder blades. They transmit a signal with a number that can be detected by special wands. The number corresponds to a number in a database, linking the animal to its owner’s contact information. If an animal gets lost, anyone with a wand can link the microchip to the owner’s contact information and get him or her home quickly.

Choosing to microchip your pet is an inexpensive, responsible and often life-saving decision. We will microchip your pet for just $30. Just bring your pet to the shelter between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The process only takes a minute, and no appointment is necessary. The Cheyenne Animal Shelter also holds quarterly microchip clinics with reduced microchip fees of only $20. Please see our event calendar for more details.
