Having your pet microchipped is a great, inexpensive way to ensure that he or she has permanent identification. A chip the size of a grain of rice containing a serial number is injected just under the skin between the animal’s shoulder blades. The process in simple, and painless – much like a needle prick that humans feel. We scan all animals for a microchip. If an animal has been chipped, we will have information about its human caregiver.
As a convenience for local residents, this service is available – no appointment needed – at both of our facilities. Microchipping is included with the cost of every adoption, but is also available to the general public on a drop-in basis. The cost is $30.
As a convenience for local residents, County licenses can be purchased, no appointment necessary, at either of our shelters. Owners can also go online to PetData.com or by call 1-866-925-5906. To obtain a license, please provide proof of ownership and proof of Rabies vaccinations. Current licensing fees can be found on the County of San Mateo website (click here).
