Pet owners living in zip code 77084 can get a free microchip for their dog or cat this Sunday, thanks to the Animal Shelter Alliance of Greater Houston. Folks living in other Houston-area zip codes pay just $20, which is less than half what I paid for my dog’s microchip at the vet. Here are the specifics:

Sunday, September 25, 11 am – 3 pm
Houston Farm & Ranch, Arena #1
1 Abercrombie Drive, 77084

This is such a great deal — both for your pet not to lose you and for your wallet! Unfortunately, 1 of every 3 pets is lost during its lifetime.
