Animal Care Services hosting 'Microchip Mania' on Friday

Event takes place at the San Juan Brady Community Center from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.


SAN ANTONIO – If you're looking to get your pet microchipped, Animal Care Services is hosting the event just for you.

Microchip Mania will be held Friday Jan. 8 at the San Juan Brady Community Center located at 2307 South San Calaveras from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Dogs and cats are welcome and no appointments are necessary.

Residents however must ensure their animal companions are leashed or in an appropriate carrier. Free microchips available for the pets of City of San Antonio residents only and photo I.D. is required.

Local veterinary clinics and shelters (including the City’s ACS) scan animals upon intake with a special handheld device. The pet’s microchip has a unique ID number (similar to a driver’s license number) which can be “read” by the scanner, helping to trace the dog or cat back to the owner through their provided contact information.
