As you likely know, we have a visitor at the ARLGP who traveled all the way from Albuquerque, New Mexico. How Spice the kitten ended up in Portland, we have no idea! But we do know she is going home this Thursday for a reunion with her family.
Spice has become our poster kitty for the importance of microchipping. If Spice hadn’t had a microchip linking her to her owners in New Mexico, we would not have known that she has a loving family out there who was looking for her.
In honor of Spice and the 2,318 miles she traveled from Albuquerque to Portland, we will be holding a one-day microchipping discount at the ARLGP on Thursday, December 4th. The cost (similar to her mileage trekked) will be $23.18 per microchipped pet.
Microchipping is our #1 way of reuniting lost and stray pets with their owners. While microchipping is more common with dogs, it is also extremely beneficial to microchip outdoor and indoor cats in the event that they go missing.
We hope you are able to stop by the ARLGP on Thursday, December 4th to microchip your pet between the hours of noon and 4:30pm. Microchipping is first-come, first-served. Please call the ARLGP directly at (207) 854-9771 with any questions.
