Friends of MACC, PCC provide free pet microchips

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WKRN) – Two local animal-centric organizations have joined forces to improve the quality of life for pets and pet owners in the Middle Tennessee area. Pet Community Center (PCC) and Friends of Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC) have partnered to provide free microchips for the furry friends in the Nashville area.

Both organizations share a mission to provide animal welfare services, humane education, and the promotion of meaningful bonds between people and their pets. The groups have joined forces to offer free microchip services to PCC customers.

In this original initiative, 443 pets in the community – 116 dogs and 327 cats – were microchipped for free. The organizations called it “a phenomenal success”.

The organizations now want to extend this service to more than just PCC families.

“The ability to provide free microchips to our customers is a significant step in ensuring lost pets can be successfully reunited with their owners,” said PCC President and CEO Amy Waller. “Additionally, this important partnership furthers our goal of ensuring pets stay happy, healthy and in a home with people who love them. We are so grateful to Friends of MACC for their support in fulfilling this crucial mission and in serving the people and pets of our community.”

According to the organizations, microchipping your pets serves a dual purpose: it provides a valuable, proven means of bringing lost and missing pets home, and it also ensures missing pets don’t accidentally end up in animal shelters.

“Microchipping is a simple and effective way to ensure lost pets can be quickly reunited with their families, and they also significantly reduce the number of pets entering shelters, reducing overcrowding and freeing up resources for more pressing needs.” said Brandon Dyce, Chair of the Friends of MACC.
