FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- H.O.P.E. for Animals is offering a microchip special just in time for the Fourth of July.

Next Friday, June 29th, all microchips will be four dollars from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the H.O.P.E clinic.

Wednesday on FOX 55, we told you the Fourth of July is the most common day of the year for pets to run away. That's because fireworks and other loud noises scare pets, but getting microchipped can save your best friend.

The American Veterinary Medical Association reports 75 percent of lost, microchipped cats and dogs are found. But, it only works if the registration information is accurate.

"The microchip is the only true permanent form of identification to make sure if your pet gets lost, it can get back home with you. So, even if someone took the collar off of this dog, she has a microchip, and that microchip traces back to the owner," said Allison Miller, executive director at H.O.P.E for Animals.
