LA Animal Services Offers Free Microchips For Pets While Supplies Last
Los Angeles, April 18, 2022 – Thanks to a generous grant from California Animal Welfare Funders Collaborative, LA Animal Services is offering free microchips for pets while supplies last! 

What is Microchipping?

A microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the animal’s skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip has a unique number that is registered with a nationwide database along with the pet owner’s address and phone number. If your pet becomes lost, the microchip can be read by scanners that are used by most animal centers and veterinary clinics. Microchips reunite countless pets each year, and can make all the difference in finding your pet if they are lost, or even stolen.

How to Receive a Microchip from LA Animal Services 

If your pet is not microchipped, you may contact any of our LA Animal Services Centers and schedule an appointment at 888-452-7381, or you may book an appointment online by clicking here.
