MICROCHIPS
​Up to 8 million animals end up in the shelter every year and only 15-20% of them are ever reclaimed. During this painless procedure, a needle is used to place a chip under the dog's skin, that has a unique number that can be picked up by a scanner. The procedure takes less than a minute and you can rest assured knowing should your pet ever get lost, you have taken the precaution to bring him home.

PUPPY PLAY GROUP

Puppies between the ages of 8-16 weeks are at a critical stage in life. Socializing them appropriately with other dogs and people will make all the difference for your puppy moving forward. We offer our Puppy Play Group every Tuesday night. This gives your puppy a chance to socialize with other puppies in an appropriate manner, in a clean and safe environment.
