c2_webMicrochips are a permanent way to identify a pet and are a key element in reuniting a lost pet with their family. Microchips can reunite families long after a collar or tag may fall off or be removed – sometimes reuniting missing pets years later and several states away! The Galveston County Animal Resource Center offers microchipping daily during their regular business hours!

The registration fee is $20, which includes micro-chipping and is good for the lifetime of your pet. If you are 65 years of age or older, the registration fee is $15. You must bring your pet and current rabies vaccine certificate to the Animal Resource Center.

You will be provided with a registration certificate that you will need to keep, as it will be your proof of county registration.

If you have any questions, please contact the GARC at 409.948.2485 or at arcreg@gchd.org.
