     To date, HomeAgain has reunited 1,012,082 lost pets with their families –  and the pets all have one thing in common: a permanent microchip ID.

     When your pet is ‘chipped at our clinic, we will register it for you on HomeAgain’s national database.

     Even better, we use an online program, so your pet’s information is in the database within minutes of entry. That’s real peace of mind if your pet likes to wander.

     “Cat,” a 7-year-old spayed and declawed female cat, is looking for a new home because her loving owner is moving and can’t take her with him. Mr. D. hopes to have her placed with a new family within the next two weeks.

     “Cat” is a sweet girl and typically requires a minimum of human interaction – she’s pretty independent, from what we hear. She is a shorthaired black, white and grey kitty who has been kept up-to-date on her yearly check-ups and vaccinations. “Cat” has a nose for trouble if allowed outdoors, so we recommend keeping her inside.

     If you are interested in adopting “Cat,” or you know someone who would be, please call us at 583-2619 or contact us here. Serious inquiries only.
