All animals admitted to an L.A. Animal Services Shelter are scanned for a microchip. If a microchip is found, a nine digit number will appear and we will contact the microchip manufacturer. After a quick search of the pet database, the animal’s guardian can be contacted.
All cat, dogs and rabbits adopted from an L.A. Animal Services will have a microchip. The cost of microchipping is included in the adoption fee.
If you move, it is very important to change your address with the microchip company in case you pet gets lost.
Anyone may contact any of our LA Animal Services Centers and schedule an appointment to have their companion animal microchipped. The cost for the general public is $15.00 per animal.
