Furry Friends, a no-kill, all-volunteer cat adoption organization in Clark County, will be offering its cats and kittens for adoption and microchipping for less than half the price at the Peace and Justice Fair in early September.
“Come on out and ‘purruse’ the adoptable cats,” a news release from the organization states.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to chat with some Furry Friends volunteers and see all the cat themed merchandise. There will also be a raffle prize and music.
The discount chipping will be done by volunteer licensed vet techs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and will cost $20 per pet — chipping usually costs $50.
“A recent study showed that less than 2 percent of cats without microchips were returned home,” the news release stated. “However, if a cat is microchipped, the return-to-owner rate is 20 times higher than if the cat was not microchipped. This unique permanent identification gives your lost pet a much better chance of coming home.”
If you want to go:
9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 9 at Esther Short Park, 415 W 6th St., Vancouver.
Cost: $20 per pet for microchipping
