News Release

Free Microchips Available at Moreno Valley Animal Shelter

Supply Limited, Appointments Needed

For immediate release: September 22, 2020

For a limited time only, free HomeAgain microchips are now available for Moreno Valley dogs and cats. That's a $16 savings per pet! Residents must make an appointment with the Animal Shelter.

"As the human companion to two beautiful dogs adopted from the Shelter, I urge residents to take advantage of this opportunity," said Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley. "It brings tremendous peace of mind knowing that my dogs can be easily identified at any veterinary hospital or animal shelter if they were to be lost or injured."

This offer will last until 150 dogs and cats have been scheduled to be microchipped. To make an appointment, call 951-413-3790, Tuesday – Friday, 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., or on Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Up to four pets per household can qualify for free microchips. Proof of residency will be required at the time of your appointment. Dog owners must have a current dog license but may renew or purchase a new license at the time of their appointment.

Since 2015, microchipping has been required in Moreno Valley for all dogs and cats.

This free microchip promotion is funded by a generous grant from the Petco Foundation.
