To keep our microchip clinic costs low, we rely on volunteers and volunteer vet clinics to run a successful microchip clinic. There is so much that happens behind the scenes and on the day of but that unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on this plan; however we are working behind the scenes and hope to have a microchip clinic planned for the spring/summer of 2022! Until then, keep watch of our SNKI Facebook page or the Kingston Community Lost & Found Pets Facebook page for updates.
About our Microchip Clinics:
We offer low-cost ($15) microchips for cats and dogs throughout the year. With the help of volunteers, local veterinarians, vet techs and preregistration online we are able to keep our costs low. We book appointments by time-slot, which is emailed after registration and payment. We do ask that you arrive on time for your appointment (not early), this allows us to register and microchip as many pets as possible! If you need to change your time or can’t make your appointment please email: [email protected]. We offer walk-ins for $20 (cash only) during the last hour of our clinics. As a registered charity, Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative hosts the microchip clinic and we couldn’t do it without the generosity of local businesses, veterinarians, vet techs and volunteers!
Total Pets Microchipped
What is Included:
For no more than 15 minutes of your time, your pet will be microchipped and you will have the peace of mind knowing that your pet has a higher chance of making it home in the event that he/she is lost! The microchipping process takes less than 5 minutes and our volunteers will provide you with a copy of your paperwork. After the clinic, one of our volunteers will enter in your microchip/pet information into the Pet Point system. Once completed, we will email you an electronic copy of your paperwork, along with instructions on how to use the 24PetWatch login page.
Please ensure your dog is on a leash and in your control at all times; and/or ensure your cat is in a pet carrier. We do everything we can to keep the costs low and do not offer refunds unless it is found on the day of the clinic your pet is already microchipped.
Can my puppy or kitten be microchipped? Puppies and kittens 8 weeks and older can be safely microchipped. We use “micro” microchips which are smaller than the standard microchip, this provides even less ouch factor for small pets and is safe for puppies and kittens.
Can my bird/bunny/rat be microchipped? Unfortunately, we can only offer microchips to dogs and cats.
Will the microchip hurt my pet? No, it shouldn’t feel more than a small pinch! We use “micro” microchips which are smaller than the standard microchip, this provides even less ouch factor for your pet.
Can I arrive early for my appointment? We ask that you arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. The appointment is quick and should take no longer than 15 minutes in total if everyone arrives for their scheduled time. If you would like a different appointment time, please contact [email protected]
