Haywood Spay/Neuter has received a grant to cover the cost of 1000 found Animal microchips from the Bissell pet foundation. “We are excited about this Grant as we intend offer it free to all pets signed up for spay/neuter services at Haywood Spay/Neuter,” said Scarlette Heatherly administrator, “We know that many dogs and cats turn up at the county shelter without identification, thus, making it hard for them to be returned to their owners. Microchips will help solve this problem especially for cats who seldom wear collars”, she continued.

Bissell Pet Foundation was started by Cathy Bissell as a natural extension of her love for animals and her commitment to their welfare. The foundation’s goal is to help reduce the number of animals in the shelters and rescue situations and find loving homes for every pet.

“Providing free microchips to those signing up for our Spay/Neuter transports is a win-win for animals at Haywood County. The Pets get fixed which prevents unwanted litters and microchipped pets have a better chance to be returned home if they get lost”, stated Bonnie Grumka, treasurer.

Haywood Spay/Neuter also intends to offer free microchip clinics for those pets that have already been fixed later this spring. For further information call 828-452-1329.
