ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is offering to microchip dogs and cats for free. The offer is good to all residents of Albuquerque, however, the free service is only from August 6 through August 11.

In order to have your pets microchipped, pet owners must be 18-years-old and have a valid driver’s license. The pet’s microchip will be registered to the ID holder.
