Bitter cold weather didn’t keep away owners looking to vaccinate their pets on Sunday morning.
Despite a wind chill advisory, tens of people and their furry friends lined up outside of the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Milwaukee campus. They looked to take advantage of a Sunday vaccination clinic. There, they could get their pets vaccinated.
The Humane Society offered to microchip pets as well. It’s technology that can give shelter workers an owner’s contact information, in the even a dog or cat gets lost.
“If they have a microchip, we can simply scan them and your information comes up and we can make those reunions happen right away,” said Angela Speed of the Humane Society.
Jiim Knight and his small dog Sampson were among those in the waiting room Sunday. Knight opted to give Sampson the microchip, but hopes he’ll never have to use it.
“Little booger has been a hassle and a half, but he’s pretty good, though,” he said.
