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.
