Beginning January 1, 2015, every dog, puppy, cat and kitten adopted from AWS is microchipped
at no cost to the adopter. This includes a lifetime registration with no annual update
Is your pet microchipped? Microchips can help identify you as the owner if your
pet is lost. Your contact information is stored online and available to vets and
animal control officers when your lost pet is scanned.
AWS will implant a chip and provide free registration for life for a one-time fee
Microchipping is done by appointment only at the shelter. Please call the shelter
at 304-725-0589 to schedule an appointment.
