Life-saving gifts available at Norman Animal Shelter – The Norman Transcript

The Norman Animal Shelter has the perfect gift for animal lovers. This Christmas, the city adoption site is offering gift certificates for microchips and adoptions.

Animal Welfare Director John Bowman said microchips are the perfect gift for the pet lover in your life.

“A lot of people have pets, but those pets aren’t microchipped,” he said.

The microchips cost $25. The city uses Home Again chips which can be recognized by scanners far beyond Norman city limits.

“It’s international,” Bowman said.

A tiny microchip is inserted into the pet much like getting an inoculation. The pet can also wear a Home Again tag, but the tags aren’t necessary to protect your pet.
