The Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center will offer microchipping of dogs and cats to Cape May County residents during the month of June. When a lost pet is found by animal control or taken to the county shelter, they are checked for a microchip with a handheld wand which displays the chip number. This number is cross referenced with a database and the pet and owner can quickly be reunited. An appointment, proof of county residency and rabies vaccination are required. The cost of the chip is $15. Please call 465-8923 to schedule an appointment.
The Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is located in the Crest Haven complex at 110 Shelter Road in Cape May Court House. The Shelter is open to the public 12 p.m. to -4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The facility is closed on legal holidays.
