Dallas Animal Services Hosts Low-Cost Microchip Event Ahead of 4th of July

Dallas Animal Services (DAS) is gearing up for an anticipated rise in pet intakes during the upcoming 4th of July celebrations with a special two-day event offering low-cost microchips, collars, and ID tags. The initiative aims to enhance the safety and security of pets in the community.

Paul Ramon, interim Director of DAS, emphasized the importance of the event amidst the potential distress caused to pets by fireworks. The goal is to minimize the chances of pets becoming lost by ensuring they are properly identified through microchipping and tagging. This effort also aims to ease the strain on DAS's current capacity.

The event will take place at 1818 North Westmoreland Road on July 2 and July 3, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is open to Dallas residents, offering a microchip, collar, and custom engraved ID tag for a suggested donation of $4 to Friends of Dallas Animal Services. Pets do not need to accompany their owners for an ID tag or collar, but they must be present to receive a microchip. Dogs should be leashed, and cats must be in carriers during the event.

It's important to note that fireworks are prohibited within the City of Dallas, and city code mandates microchipping for all dogs and cats.
