Updating License & Microchip Information

Recently the Animal Shelter has taken in several severely injured-ill animals that have had dog licenses & microchips.  In the process of attempting to contact the animals owners, the phone number information for the owners in our computer system came back not in service. 

If you have moved, changed your home or cell number and have an animal licensed or microchipped with Animal Care Services please make sure to contact us at 463-4427 to have the information updated in our computer system. 

If your animal is microchipped with a national organization please make sure to contact them with the updated address or phone number information.  

Click the link below to enter your pets microchip number to find out what national organization your microchip is registered with.  The link will give you the microchip company's contact information.

Please contact the Animal Shelter at 463-4427 to schedule bringing in any owned or feral cat or kitten.

We greatly appreciate the assistance of the public in helping us work through this situation.

Thank you.
