Kent Animal Shelter is giving pet owners a discount on keeping their four-footed friends safe.
During the month of March, Kent wil offer low-cost microchipping for pets -- and credited the initiative to McGee, a cat reunited with his owner afer three years apart, due to the fact that he was microchipped when originally adopted at Kent.
After three years, Kent representatives said, McGee’s owner Charlene Lanigan -- who had kept hope alive that he would be located -- got the long-awaited call that he had been found; the pair were reunited at the Islip Animal Shelter.
Kent Animal Shelter microchips all pets that they adopt out to new owners.
And now, Kent Animal Shelter is offering a discounted price on a microchip for their own pets for the entire month of March. For $20, normally $30, pet owners can get their pets microchipped.
To make an appointment Monday through Friday, contact Kent Animal Shelter at (631) 727-7797.
