It's doggone good information to know.

If this is the only way you're making sure your lost pup or cat gets home, you should come see us this Saturday, August 15 at the Natural Pet Foods, LLC from 10:00-1:00!

Did you know that 1 in 3 pets will go missing or become lost at some point in their lifetime? A microchip that's registered and updated with accurate information is the surest way to double your pet's chances of returning home after an adventure. Help the Monroe County Humane Association celebrate national "Check the Chip" day on Saturday, August 15 where we'll be ready to scan pets with current microchips and provide low-cost microchips to pets that don't!  You can find our team at the Natural Pet Foods store at 2401 W. 3rd St from 10:00am to 1:00pm.  If you believe your pet is microchipped, but don't have the number, we'll have information on hand to help you update the microchip information. Microchips will be available for purchase for just $15, implanted and registered, and includes a free nail trim.

What is Parvo?
And Why Should You Care?

We've received multiple reports and requests for medical assistance vouchers relating to dogs that have been showing symptoms related to parvo.  At the Walnut Street Pike Apartments, at least two dogs, under the age of six months, have passed away due to sypmtoms of Parvo, and one, Roscoe, is still under emergent care at a local veterinary office after receiving an emergency medical voucher.

Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that can produce a life-threatening illness. The virus attacks rapidly dividing cells in a dog's body, most severely affecting the intestinal tract. Parvovirus also attacks the white blood cells, and when young animals are infected, the virus can damage the heart muscle and cause lifelong cardiac problems.

Rover is a 1-year old French Lop rabbit.  Rover comes to us from Bloomington Animal Care and Control where he had been surrendered by his family, and after waiting more than three weeks for a new family, MCHA gave him a trial run as an Ambassador Animal.  During his trial run, Rover was sure to greet people at the door, jump into trash cans, tried answering the phones, and was sure to get in the way.  He passed his screening with flying colors and we're looking forward to introducing him to the programs this year!
