MICHIGAN HUMANE SOCIETY VETERINARY CENTERS OFFERING FREE MICROCHIPPING FOR 2,000 CATS

Organization makes bold commitment to help save cat lives

For cat owners, it’s a startling statistic: Nationwide, less than 2% of stray cats entering shelters are ever reunited with their families. Last year, at the Michigan Humane Society (MHS), less than 1% of stray cats were reunited with their owners. To increase the chances that lost cats are reunited with their families and to help save lives, MHS’ three veterinary centers are offering free microchipping to their feline clients.  The generous opportunity will be extended to the first 2,000 cats at the time of any MHS veterinary office visit or other paid service. The free microchipping will be provided by appointment only on a first-come, first-served basis.

“So much heartache is caused when thousands of area cats become lost each year and so few are ever found by their distraught families, but that can be easily prevented by taking precautionary steps such as providing your pet with proper identification,” said Dr. Kelley Meyers, MHS Vice President of Veterinary Center Operations. “Lives are saved when pets have current identification to speak for them.”



A microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is inserted between the pet’s shoulders in a process that is comparable to a vaccination. Animal shelters (both nonprofit shelters like MHS and municipal animal control shelters) and veterinarians have universal scanners that can be used to scan pets that are found as strays. If a microchip is detected, the unique, pet-specific code can be readily traced to the owner.  A microchip is not a GPS locating device.  

MHS strongly recommends that all dogs and cats wear a collar with an identification tag, and in conjunction with this visible ID, be microchipped.  If the pet’s collar and identification tags should fall off – or be taken off – a microchip could be his or her ticket home.

The MHS veterinary centers offer appointments Monday through Saturday. Please call:
•           MHS Detroit: (313) 872-0004
•           MHS Rochester Hills: (248) 852-7424
•           MHS Berman Center in Westland: (734) 721-4195



The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.

How To Celebrate National Cat Day

Mom Will Be Meowing at BarkWorld and MeowWorld thanks to Rachael Ray Nutrish! (Sponsored)

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Rachael Ray Nutrish.   As always, thank you for reading and supporting our sponsors.

Hi every furry! Well, tomorrow is going to be a sad day for me. A sad day indeed! Tomorrow Mom is leaving me (AGAIN) for "Hotlanta", where she will be attending Barkworld and Meowworld thanks to MY being an Ambassacat for Nutrish for Cats! (Ok, Dakota is an Ambassadog, so I guess since he hooked up with Nutrish first, I should give credit where credit is due! Nutrish is one of the sponsors of Barkworld/Meowworld and thanks to their generosity, Mom is able to attend!


Mom is pawticularly excited because the Cat Writers' Association annual conference will be held in conjunction with Meowworld (they are sponsoring Meowworld), and it will be Mom's first time attending a CWA conference!


Last year when Mom went to Barkworld her focus was on all things dog, THIS year it will be different! Mom is planning on attending a number of cat-related events, and is going to be focusing more on CATS there. (Well, that's a no-brainer, she SHOULD be!)

The event will be bitter sweet due to the sudden and unexpected passing of Lorie Huston (former CWA President), and Mom is going to be one of many cat bloggers attending a special remembrance event Saturday morning who will be wiping tears from their eyes.

Mom is also sad because she had been teasing Lorie about the costume she is going to wear Thursday evening at the CWA  Bag Stuffing and Welcome Reception (being held from 5pm to 7pm). Lorie had told Mom she couldn't wait to see her costume, Mom is sad that won't happen. Mom is going to try and keep a smile on her face, but her heart will be aching. (For those attending the bag stuffing Thursday night, you won't be able to miss Mom, trust me....MOL)

Mom says it will be nice to re-connect with so many blogging pals (from both  cat AND dog blogs), and, as always, it will be great to meet new furiends too!

If you want to keep tabs on Mom at the conference, you can follow her on twitter @catchatcaren where she will be doing the majority of her tweeting.  Mom will also be re-tweeting some tweets that Nutrish will be posting! You can follow them too @Nutrish. Unlike other DEDICATED bloggers, Mom is NOT bringing her laptop with her to Atlanta, but she said she WILL have an update within a few weeks of her return. 

What will I be doing while Mom is away?

What do you think?

I will be eating THIS:



AND LOTS OF THIS!!!
I have Dad wrapped around my paw for extra servings you know!


As much as I LOVE my Nutrish for Cats, I will wish Mom wouldn't go.
 Do you think there is room for me in her bag?
