Pet adoption, microchipping event to be held at Hyundai dealership – Ultimate Kingwood

A pet adoption and free microchip clinic will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 21 at Humble Hyundai, 18877 Highway 59 N. in Humble.

Rescue animals will be up for adoption, and information will be available on the importance of properly identifying pets. Best Friends Furever will have dogs available for adoption, and Adopt a Cat will have cats available.

According to a press release, a microchip is a permanent way to identify a pet that will not fade and will keep owners from becoming separated from their pet.

“Tens of thousands of dogs and cats will be put to death in Houston’s animal shelters, and many are lost pets that could have been reunited with their owners,” Deana Sellens, executive director of Spay/Houston, said in the release. “It’s imperative that you protect your pet by ensuring he or she has proper identification. If your family pet isn’t microchipped yet, please come to Humble Hyundai for our free clinic.”

The clinic is in observance of National Pet ID Week and is co-sponsored by Humble Hyundai with Best Friends Furever and Spay/Houston.
