The Humane Society of Boone County is partnering with Lebanon Veterinary Clinic, Thorntown Veterinary Clinic and Zionsville Animal Hospital for a Chip Blitz on June 1.
According to Boone County animal ordinance section 93.02 F, effective June 1, microchipping or a tag on the collar stating the owner’s current name, address and telephone number will be required in Boone County for domestic animals 6 months or older.
Chip Blitz will be offered quarterly to help the community get in compliance with the new ordinance, Susan Austin, board president of the Humane Society for Boone County, said.
To help ensure that the new ordinance is met, LVC, TVC and ZAH are offering to microchip cats and dogs for $20 cash only from 1 to 4 p.m. June 1. Appointments are not necessary. However, there is a waiver that will need to be signed by someone 18 or older.
With a microchip, there will never be another fee. The microchip must be registered online. If a dog or cat gets scanned, their living information will pull from the database, Austin said.
