My animal is microchipped. How will this help reunite me with my pet?
All stray animals are scanned for a microchip when arriving at a shelter. The shelter will contact the person whose information is registered to that microchip. Friends of Animals encourages all pet owners to microchip their companion animal and to keep the information updated to expedite lost pet reunions. If a microchip has old information, shelters are not able to contact the current owner.
Friends of Animals offers microchipping for owned animals. Call (218) 879-1655 to schedule an appointment. Help shelters reunite you with your lost companion for only 15 minutes and $25. Call today for peace of mind. You can also inquire about this service with your vet.
