We had a record number of adoptions at the Sapulpa Animal Shelter last week, saving numerous lives. Let’s keep these lucky pups and Sapulpa’s other furry friends safe with microchips and free pet ID tags.

Join Sapulpa Furry Friends, Oklahoma Alliance for Animals and Sapulpa Main Street for a National Pet Month Celebration this Saturday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Martha’s Corner in downtown Sapulpa.

Cats and dogs can be microchipped for only $20, which includes lifetime registration. Animals can also go home with one free engraved pet ID tag. Additional tags are $5 each. There will also be pet photography with a donation to the Sapulpa shelter, pet adoptions, as well as a pet parade at noon around the downtown area.

“Cats with microchips are 20 times more likely to be returned home than cats without,” says Sapulpa Furry Friends President Jessica Thorne. “Dogs with microchips are 2.5 times more likely to be returned than those without. Plus, microchips can’t fall off or be forgotten like collars with ID tags. They help ensure a quick recovery if your pet is ever lost.”

Sapulpa Furry Friends will also be selling branded T-shirts to help raise funds for rescue efforts. Pooches who participate in the pet parade are encouraged to dress up. The best dressed pup’s human receives a free T-shirt. In honor of the Royal Wedding, the human of the best dressed Meghan “Barkle” or Prince “Hairy” will also receive a free T-shirt.
