The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is holding a low-cost microchip clinic from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 22.
The cost for the microchip is $15. The cost is reduced to $3 for pets that are spayed or neutered and $8 for unaltered animals.
In additional, pet owners living in unincorporated areas of the county can sign up for a county pet license at the shelter. Proof of a current rabies vaccination is needed for the county license. Rabies vaccinations will be available at the clinic for $10.
The City of Round Rock also will offer city licenses at the shelter on Sunday. Rabies vaccinations are required for city licenses as well. Cash or checks are accepted.
Any dog or cat adopted from the animal shelter that did not receive a microchip or rabies vaccination prior to going home can come by the shelter on Sunday for these services. The cost of these services is included in the adoption fee.
Adoption fees are $85 which covers basic vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and a microchip. The fee includes heartworm screening for dogs and FIV/FeLV testing for cats.
