Santa Says SNIP ‘N CHIP Pets this Holiday Season

Santa Says “SNIP ‘N CHIP” Pets this Holiday Season

This low-cost gift will help ensure your pet is safely at “Home for the

The Animal Coalition of Tampa (ACT) is offering a unique holiday gift this
December for the pet that has almost everything. Snip ‘n Chip is a
combination of low-cost spay/neuter plus a microchip for permanent
identification. Pets that have these two procedures are protected and will
live a longer, healthier life.

So what exactly is Snip N’ Chip? The “Snip” refers to spaying or neutering
the pet to prevent unwanted litters and provides other health benefits that
will lengthen a pet’s life and improve some negative behaviors.

The “Chip” refers to implanting a microchip for permanent identification. A
microchip provides a lifetime form of identification that cannot be altered,
and the procedure is similar to a vaccination. It just takes seconds. .

So, if your pet has already been ‘snipped’, but you would still like to get
in on the ‘chip’, no sweat! Microchipping will be available for $20 from
ACT for this holiday season.

Microchipping is essential as hundreds of thousands of pets go missing each
year. Holidays can be a hectic time for pets, as guests come and go, and
holiday festivities take place. Also, year-round emergency situations, such
as a car accident or hurricane can separate you from your four-legged friend
in a matter of seconds.
