Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Dozens of pet owners can have more peace of mind if their pet wanders off or is taken.

The F-M Humane Society held it's last Microchipping of the season. For 30-dollars, pets got an identity chip injected just underneath the skin. These chips become very useful when tracking down the owners of missing pets. Heather Clyde, manager of the F-M Humane Society, says, “the microchip gives the owner's a little peace of mind, so if they do get lose and end up in the pound, the pound is going to contact them when they find the animal. Incase the collar comes off, the tags come off the collar, at least they still have some sort of identification still on them.” The next microchipping event is in May.
