Cloquet Police Department To Host Pet Microchip Clinic
The Cloquet Police Department is hosting a Pet Microchip Clinic at Veteran's Park in Cloquet. The event is free to Carlton County residents, while non-residents are $20 per pet.
The Pet Microchop Clinic is Saturday, September 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Carlton County residents must show proof of residency with a valid photo I.D. and there is a 3 pet limit per household.
Other things to keep in mind for the event include:
- This is a first come first serve event due to limited supplies.
- Due to COVID-19 health concerns, this event will be drive-thru only.
- Vehicles will enter one-way on the east side parking lot at Veteran's Memorial Park where vehicles will form a line towards the west side parking lot exit. Microchip applications must be completed and people must remain in their vehicle.
- All pets must be secured, leashed or in a kennel. Staff will come to you to administer the microchip to your pet(s).
Having a microchip placed in your pet can play an important role should they ever get lost. According VetriScience.com:
Microchips not only help people find their lost pets, but they have also helped shelters return animals to their rightful owners more quickly. In addition to providing relief for the pet owner, locating owners more efficiently helps the shelter prevent overcrowding and reduce stress levels for all the animals.
Additional services will be available on September 19 for a fee. Nail trims are $10, while distemper and bordetella shots can be administered for $12 each, or $20 for both. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.
