We now offer free microchipping for licensed dogs at our shelter with proof of a county dog license. Clinics are held the fourth Saturday of every month through a partnership with Good Neighbor Vet. Free rabies vaccinations are also available to people who purchase or renew their county dog license on the day of the clinic.
Being a responsible pet owner means microchipping, vaccinating and licensing your pet as early as possible. Microchipping improves the chance of being reunited with your dog if the dog becomes lost or stolen.
To get a free microchip for your dog:
- Come to Dog Services between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of the month. No appointment is necessary, but you may wish to arrive early. map
- Verify your dog’s current license with Dog Services before entering the Good Neighbor Vet mobile clinic in the parking lot. If you do not have a current license, you may request an authorization form at Dog Services to purchase a license after your pet receives the microchip.
If you live within the city limits of Lake Oswego or Happy Valley, you will need to purchase a license for your dog from your local city. If you live within the city limits of Tualatin, you will need to purchase a license for your dog from Washington County. Owners with a multiple dog license (a single license for 4+ dogs) may receive one microchip and one rabies vaccination with their license. Free microchipping and rabies vaccinations for licensed Clackamas County dogs can only be honored at our location. If you are unable to attend, check Good Neighbor Vet to find a clinic near you that offers reduced cost microchipping and vaccinations.
Funding for this program is provided through Clackamas County Dog Services.
