APPLE VALLEY, Calif. – “Trudy,” a spayed, female Yorkshire Terrier had been missing for four years.
Fortunately, her microchip was current and registered, so when she was brought in to Apple Valley Animal Services as a stray, staff quickly located the chip and made a call to the owner who lived in Long Beach.
The happy owner was reunited with her pet the same day.
Getting a microchip for your pet is quick, easy and can save pet owners enormous heartbreak. They will be available at the 2018 Paws N’ Claws Pet Fair at Civic Center Park on Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $20.
They are also available at the Apple Valley Animal Shelter during normal business hours for only $20.
The annual pet fair will also feature pet adoptions, a low-cost vaccine clinic, dog licensing, costume contests, vendors, food, art contest, snake avoidance training, live music, and a guest appearance by Kyra Sundance with amazing pet tricks.
Paws n’ Claws is pet-friendly for well-mannered pets, and fun for all ages. Admission and parking are free.
