PCACC Offers Free Pet Microchipping in October


With October well underway, Pinal County Animal Care & Control (PCACC) announces a special initiative that pet owners will find neither tricky nor spooky. Throughout October, PCACC is offering free microchipping services for pets, helping ensure the security and safety of the beloved animals in our community.

An Offer Too Sweet to Miss
Losing a pet can be a frightening experience for any pet owner. Microchipping is a reliable method to safeguard against such loss, offering a way to quickly identify and return pets to their rightful homes. This month, residents can avail of this service absolutely free, with no hidden fees.

How to Avail the Offer
Taking advantage of this special offer is straightforward:

  • Schedule an appointment with PCACC.
  • On the day of the appointment, bring your pet dressed in a costume or donate an unopened bag of candy.
  • Schedule Your Appointment
  • To secure a spot, pet owners should act promptly. Appointments can be scheduled by calling PCACC at 520-509-3555 or sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Why Microchip?
A microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the same size as a grain of rice. The microchip itself does not have a battery—it is activated by a scanner that is passed over the area, and the radiowaves put out by the scanner activate the chip. The chip transmits the identification number to the scanner, which displays the number on the screen. This unique identification number can be the key to reuniting lost pets with their owners.

October's free microchipping initiative is not only timely but also essential, given the increased risk of pets going missing during the hustle and bustle of Halloween activities. By either dressing up your pets or donating a bag of candy, you can secure a service that normally comes at a premium for absolutely free. This initiative by PCACC is indeed a treat, providing pet owners in San Tan Valley and the larger Pinal County with a sense of security and peace of mind regarding the safety of their furry family members. Ensure your pet's safety and schedule your appointment today!
