We know the pet owners among our Cheapsters are very devoted to our cats and dogs (along with other pets like fish, guinea pigs, chinchillas, etc.). Being pet owners ourselves, we more than understand the desire to take good care of our animal family members. One thing that can save your pet’s life in the event that he or she is ever lost is microchipping. Microchipping involves implanting a small electronic device the size of a grain of rice under your pet’s skin so that they can be more easily identified by shelters and the like.
Main Source Bank at 135 and County Line Road is doing a “chip your pet” day today (Friday, August 9) starting at 11 am until 2 pm. First 50 pets in line are free; $10 per pet after that.
Ameriana Bank and the Humane Society for Hamilton County are offering this microchipping process for FREE from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 10. The branch in question is located at 3975 W. 106th Street at Michigan Road. The FREE microchips are limited to the first 100 pets (and one per household). Microchipping a second pet will cost $20.
In addition to the microchipping, Ameriana Bank will also feature pets available for adoption. You can also find giveaways and a variety of pet service vendors.
Finally, a special dinner, Pasta for Paws, will benefit FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic on Saturday from 11 am to 8 pm at the Castleton Noodles and Co. on 82nd St. The restaurant is donating 25% of your order to this organization that provides low cost surgeries to combat pet over population. Just mention FACE or IndyFeral at the counter.
