Discounted Microchips at Humane Society Silicon Valley. Throughout the month of June, HSSV is offering a discount on pet microchips. Frightened pets often escape during the loud 4th of July holiday and microchipping is one way to ensure a reunion if your pet runs away. Any rescue agency and most veterinary offices have machines available to read the microchip and quickly reunite a lost pet with its family. Walk-in microchipping is $30 plus tax. No appointment is necessary. Call (408) 262-2133 x 108 for more information.
