The Delaware County Kennel Club (DCKC), working in conjunction with the local county council, just sponsored a free microchip clinic for dogs in their county.
From the Daily Times:
The two groups partnered to purchase 300 microchips, tiny electronic devices that carry a registration number, to be provided to Delaware County residents and their pets. The chips can be scanned to determine a dog’s owner, helping them find their way home should they ever get lost. In the past, Delaware County Council and the kennel club have partnered twice to sponsor these free clinics, and at the most recent clinic in 2013, 140 dogs received chips.
The Delaware County Kennel Club raises funds for the microchip clinic through its annual dog show and agility demonstrations.
“It’s because of these events that we are able to provide our share of the microchips,” said Kennel Club member Marge Remolde. “Whatever money we make there enables us to do this.”
Congratulations on the great work, DCKC!
