Today, Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare (AAM&W) is offering free microchipping for pets at Sam Houston Park at 4101 Line Ave.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., pet owners can visit the park and get a free microchip for their family pet.
According to the Animal Health Foundation, one in three family pets will be lost during its lifetime, and without identification, around 90% will not return home.
Animals are received into the City of Amarillo shelter on a daily basis with no identification, making it difficult to reunite those lost pets with their families.
