No matter where you live, this quick process can reunite you with your pet from across the world and get them home safe! Q.What is the cost? A: There is a $30 fee to get the microchip implanted and registered but no fees after that so your pet will be safe for a lifetime! Q: How do I set up an appointment for microchipping at HSL?
