4 Steps to Microchip Your Pet
Bring your pet to Pet Guardian Angel between 10:30 AM through 4:30 PM Tuesday through Friday (Call to make sure we have someone available for you).
Pay $15 cash, credit or debit.
Take the paperwork for your pet to Animal Services. Do not take your pet with you.
At animal services pick up a city tag and pay $10. They will supply you with a metal tag and register your dog locally. Currently, Home Again has a program to register the chip nationally for $10.99.
Microchipping is a permanent way to identify your pet. A microchip will be a part of your pet for the rest of its life. City law now requires a microchip be implanted in all dogs, cats, and ferrets. The law only states that your pet has to be registered locally. This means that people who cannot afford national registration will still be able to comply with the law.
Do we microchip?
We will microchip you cat or dog for only $15.00. We welcome credit cards and debit cards. Microchipping is generally done between 10:30 AM through 4:30 PM Tuesday through Friday at our kennel. It takes about 10 minutes to insert the chip and fill out the paperwork. This low cost chip does not include national registration. You can turn in your paperwork by taking the information to Animal Services on Fred Wilson St. If you love your pet, it is a valuable asset and discourages theft. Microchip prices vary in El Paso based on registration and profit gain. We started the low cost program especially for those who cannot afford to pay a higher price but want to adhere to the law.
Note: We strongly encourage you to call us prior to your visit to ensure your pets will be given the care they need upon your arrival.
