ROCKLAND, Maine — The Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County will hold a micro-chipping event and bake sale 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Loyal Biscuit Co., 442 Main St. No appointment is necessary.
Trained shelter staff will implant the tiny, rice-sized I.D., which is encoded with a unique number and implanted just under the skin in the scruff of the neck. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds. The ‘chip’ can later be detected and read by a scanner used by shelters, veterinarians and other agencies.
The cost is $25. Proceeds will benefit the humane society.
