The Animals Are First Fund, AARF, a nonprofit started by the County of San Barnardino Animal Care and Control two years ago to raise money for animal control programs not covered by the County, has donated 5,000 microchips to SB ACC, and on Tuesday, it was approved by the Board of Supervisors.
This is one of three donations of microchips to the County shelters, the value of this one is over $27,000. The program has been successful in helping to reunite owners with their lost pets who come into the shelter. It also helps to reunite owners with their pets for less fees required by the shelter.
The microchips are also offered at the weekend pet adoption events throughout the year.
