Dog owners can bring their pets in for a free grooming and discounted-cost microchipping to help reunite them with their owners if they are ever lost. The event, from noon to 3 p.m. March 10 at Miranda’s Smooch a Pooch Salon, 1827 Iowa Ave., Superior, also will raise
donations for a designated fund at Animal Allies Humane Society to help pay for spaying and neutering dogs from Superior.
“There are two easy ways we, as an animal-loving community, can keep animals out of our shelters: by microchipping our own pets and by helping to make spay and neuter services accessible to owners for whom cost is barrier,”said Dr. Amanda Bruce, a veterinarian who will be offering microchip placements and registrations at the discounted rate of $30.
“This is good for our community,” said Brooke Jussila, co-owner of Miranda’s Smooch a Pooch, who will be offering free basic groomings for suggested donations to the fund. “We want people to know that spay and neuter options are available. It’s good to raise this awareness in Superior."
