Clinic to microchip pets for seniors

Aspen Court senior living and Cascade East Veterinary Clinic will host a microchip clinic on Sept. 14, 2-3:30 p.m., which is open for pets with owners age 55 and over.

The cost is $25, and dogs must be on a leash, and cats in a sturdy carrier.

Over 10 million pets get lost each year. Without ID, 90 percent don’t return home. However, the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs is over 52 percent, and over 38 percent for cats, according to the American Humane Association.

Aspen Court is located at 470 N.E. Oak St. in Madras.
