ST. LOUIS . – Have you ever lost your pet? Has your pet ever ran away?

August 15th is a day to celebrate National Check the Chip Day, bringing awareness to microchipping your pets and to help more lost pets get home.

You can make an appointment to bring dogs, cats, and other small animals to get microchipped at a discounted price of $25.

Regular price is $55.
