Why Microchip?

Did you know that over 90% of lost pets that have identification, microchip and/or ID tags are reunited with their families? This quick, simple and almost painless procedure is used to help identify your pet and a microchip contains a unique identifier that corresponds to your contact information.

Here’s what you need to know about microchipping:

  • The procedure is nothing more than an injection similar to a vaccine or routine shot that inserts the microchip—which is about the size of a grain of rice—under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades.
  • A microchip is not a GPS, so it cannot be used to locate your pet. But it can be used to identify him or her and facilitate a quick reunion.
  • It’s important to keep your contact information up to date so you can be notified when your pet is found. You can update your pet’s microchip online or call 24PetWatch at 1-866-597-2424.
  • All pets adopted from La Plata County Humane Society are microchipped and registered in the 24PetWatch central database.

You can come in 7 days a week, no appointment necessary to get your pet micochipped (includes registration) for $35. Visit our hours of operation to find a time that works for you.

 Feral Cat Spay/Neuter/Vaccinate Program

Feral cats are a part of our landscape and can be considered a nuisance to community members. This donation based program assists feral cat caretakers and community members in support of TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) by providing free spay/neuter services. Our TNR program helps control cat populations and behavior by sterilizing, vaccinating and returning them to their location. An appointment is required to participate.

General Information

  • Services are provided for feral (wild, un-owned, non-domesticated) cats only.
  • Cats must arrive in a humane trap, also known as Havahart traps.
  • If you do not have a trap, we offer trap rentals for $5/day with a $50 deposit. Download and complete our Trap Rental Agreement.

What’s Included

  • Free spay or neuter surgery.
  • Rabies vaccine.
  • Ear tip on left ear (Required. This is the universal sign that a cat has been sterilized.)

Trapping a Feral Cat?

  • Cover the trap (except the opening for the cat)
  • Avoid feeding the day before you trap
  • Use tasty, smelly food (cheap tuna) to lure a cat into the trap
  • Leave trap in shaded area
  • Be sure to check trap every 2-4 hours
  • Cats who are missing the top of their left ear, have already been trapped and altered. Let them go and reset the trap for ones that have not been.
  • Keep trap covered while transporting the cat to the shelter.
