A dog wandering the streets without ID can be rescued and given a second chance at love!
Come to a Pet Adoption and Microchip Event at Camp Bow Wow.
SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network and Camp Bow Wow are sponsoring a Pet Adoption and Microchip Event, Saturday, Jan. 25, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Camp Bow Wow, 16725 N. Oracle Rd., Catalina.
Microchip your pet! One in three pets are lost during their life and, without ID, 90 percent don’t find their owners. Microchipping your dog or cat gives them the best chance to return home because the permanent ID can never be removed or become unreadable. The first thing a shelter, vet office, or rescue group does with a lost pet is a microchip scan, which provides owner’s name, address, and phone.
For only $20, your pet will be microchipped by a vet tech and registered online. It’s painless for the dog and priceless to you, if your dog becomes lost.
Rescue a pet! Countless lost and abandoned pets enter Tucson’s shelters each year. Give them a second chance at love! Local rescues, including Charlotte’s Way and RUFF Rescue, will have small, medium, and large dogs ready for adoption. Looking for a specific pet? Let us know and SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network will look for them!
Visit the event! To support rescue, donate pet supplies of any kind to our Toys and Treats Drive. Make the lives of rescue pets happier while they wait for their new families.
