On Saturday, December 7th, the AZPetVet team joined forces with The LovePup Foundation and Maricopa County Animal Care and Control to host the second It’s Hip to Chip Holiday Event. (Learn more and see our first event here!) This event is specifically for local pet parents who already own pets that are not chipped, in an effort to help increase the chances of the reunification of pets with their families in case they are ever separated.
Team AZPetVet was out in full force! Our awesome medical team of the day included 3 veterinarians and 6 techs, checking vitals, administering microchips, and of course, giving some love and puppy kisses along the way. In total, our team microchipped 89 pets in just three hours! That’s pretty incredible!
Afterward, attendees and their pets had the opportunity to stop by our booth to visit with a couple of AZPetVet team members, grab some fun swag, and get their pup a final belly rub for the road! Some additional community partners including The LovePup Foundation, Safeway, and the One Love Pitbull Foundation were also onsite handing out dog food, treats, collars, leashes, and custom identification tags!
Between both of the 2019 Hip to Chip events (May and December 2019), more than 200 pets now have a better chance at being reunited with their families. None of this would have been possible without our wonderful veterinarians, technicians, and support staff. We sincerely thank you for your time and effort in helping to make this happen!
