Elk Grove City Animal Control now requires that all licensed animals be microchipped.

According to the animal licensing requirements,

"all applicants for such license shall procure and deliver a certificate issued by a duly licensed veterinarian, certifying that each dog or cat to be licensed has been administered an anti-rabies vaccination and has had a microchip inserted prior to the issuance of said license for the current license period."

Microchips benefit all pets and their owners. The microchip implanted in your pet contains a personal, one-of-a-kind identification number that identifies your pet and proof of ownership. For example, your pet can become lost due to destruction during a storm or by escaping from the yard. Without a microchip, if your pet's collar comes off, there is no identification that will provide adequate information of where he or she belongs. A microchip registered in the microchip database can provide more information than can be written on a tag. Microchips will ensure that you and your pet will be reunited without delay. A microchip is a safe, effective, and permanent form of identification to help your pet find its way back home.

To facilitate compliance for our clients, we are currently offering $10 off your pet's microchip.
