LENOIR, NC (April 19, 2017)…The Lenoir Police Department recently received a microchip scanner from a local non-profit organization, Caldwell Animal Rescue. Though veterinarians and animal control departments generally have chip scanners, the Rescue Group was inspired to donate a scanner to the Lenoir Police to assist in locating pet owners after hours.
Many pets have a microchip implant, usually near the animal’s shoulders, that contains a registry number that owners can upload online at various websites. The number can then be searched in an effort to locate the owner(s) of lost pets.
The Lenoir Police Department would like to thank Caldwell Animal Rescue and Vice President of the Rescue Group, Ray Williams, for their generosity in this donation as well as the services they provide in our community.
