On Oct. 27, from 12-4 pm, the Algoma Police Department will host a pet microchip clinic at the Algoma Youth Club, 620 Lake St. The walk-in service will feature microchipping for $20, which is 50-60 percent off the traditional cost of chipping. Dogs and cats are welcome. Supplies are limited to the first 50 people. The funds for the microchip clinic were raised by Algoma teens Sadie Olejniczak, Bailey Kostka and
Xadria Duffeck. Donations were made by community members and businesses, including The Haven, FTS Technology Group, BellaLuna’s Apothecary, Weber Insurance, and community organizations including Algoma Optimist Club and Cash For Critters, a sixth grade group led by
teacher Lyndsay Harmann. The funds raised provided for the purchase of the chip scanner and microchips. The scanner is the only one available 24/7 in the county. One out of every three pets will go missing in its lifetime, and having an accessible scanner enables Kewaunee County law enforcement to reunite pets and owners at a much faster rate. The police department hopes to offer a yearly clinic to residents.
