Animal Management to Offer Free Micro-Chipping at El Alamo Park

The City of Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare Department (AAMW) is offering a free micro-chipping event for pets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 13 at El Alamo Park, 1621 S. Houston St.

The free micro-chipping service is provided through a grant by PetSmart Charities. Related documents for the public for this micro-chipping service will be available in Spanish. 

Micro-chipping is a vital tool for pet retention purposes.

The service will be provided on a first come-first served basis.

AAMW is in need of volunteers for this event. For more information, call the AAMW shelter at (806) 378-6033 or visit the AAMW shelter, 3501 S. Osage St. Volunteers must be registered before the event.
