Monthly program for pet owners to have their cats microchipped as part of their licenses,

To help increase the number of lost cats that are returned home to their owners, the Animal Care & Control Centre (ACCC) is launching a six-month cat microchipping pilot program. Beginning January 2018, cat licenses will include a microchip. Bring your licensed, crated cat into ACCC for placement of a microchip during one of our monthly Microchip Clinics. These clinics will be held once a month, for six months, on the last Thursday of the month. 

If your cat isn’t licensed you can purchase it that day. A City of Edmonton cat licence is just $21 for a fixed animal. Government issued photo ID and proof of ownership is required.

85% of dogs admitted to ACCC are returned to their owner while only 16% of cats make it home. This is due to a lack of ID on cats admitted into the centre.
