The Ridgewood Responsible Pet Ownership Committee, which includes members from the New Jersey Federation of Dog Clubs and Ramapo Kennel Club, recently promoted responsible dog ownership, AKC Companion Animal Recovery and the importance of microchipping in its community. Club members hosted a microchip clinic and provided free microchips, implantation and AKC CAR registration for the first 75 dogs in attendance. The group also donated AKC CAR microchip scanners to the local police and health departments in Ridgewood, New Jersey. Spokesperson Jeffrey Ball was also able to share information about how microchips greatly increase the chances an owner will be reunited with his or her pet if it is lost or stolen.
Check out more of of the group's good works and enjoy photos of the microchip clinic on Facebook.
