For all the Las Vegas pet lovers out there, this Saturday, September 6, the Animal Foundation is having a dog & cat Chip & Clip from 9AM - Noon. It takes place at their Regional Animal Campus at 655 Mojave, inside the adoption tent. For just $10 you can have your pet microchipped for identification if they should get away from you, and have their nails trimmed. You can also do a trim only for $5.
The microchipping can be a lifesaver if your pet gets away from you either without their tags or loses them while they're out. Worse yet, how would you identify your dog if taken by someone else. I had a friend back east that it happened to, and without the chip it would have been nearly impossible to prove it was their dog.
Speaking of lifesavers, another quick thought about pets and their safety. We have seatbelt and carseat laws, but pets often aren't considered when going for a ride. My better half is a private pilot, and with Jack Russell's love of motion, she was a natural to fly with him even as a pup. He made his own harness that attached to the belts in the airplane and of course worked well in the car, so we always buckle her in. For their safety and your own, it's something to consider...they become a projectile in an accident. You can see a crash test video here.
