Animal Welfare Association is Providing Free Microchips to Pets of Camden County Residents
July 9th, 2021
Voorhees, NJ – If your pet is ever lost, a microchip will help reunite you with your furry family member. Thanks to the support of the Camden County Commissioners, the Animal Welfare Association Pet Clinic is providing 200 free microchips to Camden County residents who request them at AWA’s Pet Vaccine Clinic Days.
“This is a wonderful opportunity that the Camden County Commissioners were able to support this year, especially in July during Lost Pet Prevention Month,” says Maya Richmond, Executive Director of Animal Welfare Association. “Lost dogs turned into a shelter that were reunited with their families are 52% with microchipped dogs and is only 22% for non-microchipped dogs, which makes them worth getting to help identify your pet if they ever became lost.”
Camden County residents can go to any of AWA’s Pet Clinic during their Wellness Vaccine Clinic times (confusing) and request a free microchip while supplies last. ID is required to show eligibility of being a county resident and there is a limit of two microchips per household.
Out of county residents can take advantage of a reduced rate of $20 per microchip (regularly $35) for their pets, at AWA’s Pet Clinic. After 200 free microchips are provided, Camden County residents will be offered the same discounted rate for microchips at $20 each up to 200 additional microchips.
Beginning on Monday, July 12th residents can come out to one of AWA’s Wellness Vaccine Clinics which are held on Mondays from 10am to 2pm (walk-in), Tuesdays from 3pm to 7pm (appointment only – sign-up via awanj.org) and select Saturdays from 8am to 11:30am (walk-in).
AWA’s Pet Clinic is located at 509 Centennial Blvd., Voorhees, NJ 08043. For more information about this promotion please call AWA’s Pet Clinic at 856-424-2288.
