ALSO! Make sure you register your pet for FREE with
Petco Love Lost as yet another way to help reunite you and your pet should they go missing.
*Have you moved to a new home? Maybe changed your cell or home phone numbers? Make sure that you let us and Pet Link know. Always keep your information up to date with both Pet Link and AC&C (or other local Animal Control agencies)!*
Just five minutes of your time could save your pet's life.
Microchipping animals is a safe and convenient means to help get lost pets home. All our AC&C Officers have scanners in their vehicles and can scan animals for microchips int he field. If we can locate the owner, the pet can be returned home without ever coming to the shelter.
AC&C offers free registration of microchips in our local database as well as a free national registration with Pet Link. If your pet has been microchipped by the AC&C, your information is already in our database BUT if you have moved or changed your phone number you can update your information using the online form. If you have had your pet microchipped elsewhere and would like for your contact information to be in our database so we can quickly find you we will gladly enter the information at no charge. Your contact information will be accessible to us and will make it possible for your lost animal to be returned home immediately instead of being taken to the shelter.
To get all of our event flyers find us on Facebook.
If you would like to get your pet microchipped, you can visit your vet or go to our
Rabies Clinic page to see when our next microchip clinic will be. AC&C purchases their chips from Pet Link. Our microchips are $10 per microchip and include free registration into our local database AND into the national database with Pet Link.
If you can't make it to our next clinic the Humane Society of Charlotte holds a low cost vaccine clinic called Critter Care Wednesdays which includes microchipping.
Stand for Animals and
Snipwell also have Wellness Services for your pets, including microchips.
