Microchip/License Clinic this Saturday!

Visit OPHS between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 22 to take advantage of our special, low-cost microchip and license clinic. Did you know that licenses are required by law for cats and dogs residing in Clallam County?

*Pets must be spayed or neutered to qualify for a lifetime license.

Individual prices for the clinic:

  • Microchip: $20 including chip and registration. The cost is normally $35
  • Licenses: $10 for one year, $40 for lifetime. The lifetime cost is normally $50.

 Pet of the Week

Name: Otolith
Breed(s): Pure bred Dogo Argentino
Age: About 12 months
Weight: About 110 lbs
Reason for being at shelter: Transfer in from another shelter
General info: Otolith is a sweet boy! He is very people oriented and he LOVES to play with other dogs! He is LARGE and he is DEAF so there will need to be special precautions made to protect him and others around him, but he has a kind spirit and just wants to have fun. Otolith already has a great start on training (he knows several hand signals), and he should bond well with someone that knows how to communicate with him. We would prefer that he go to a home with another dog to play with, and a home with no cats. While he has never hurt a cat, he is fascinated by them and will bother/chase them… We are accepting applications for Ototlith and will be picking the BEST experienced home for him!
Adoption fee (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine, and a health check from a vet): (to be determined)
