My three cats from local shelters were all microchipped before I adopted them, and I registered them shortly after I brought them home. One of my cats does have a migrating chip. I could track it migrating down his ribs when he was a kitten, but have lost track of where it is at this point. Next vet visit I'll see if they can locate it through scan. Mine are strictly indoor cats, but I do like the extra security of the microchips, should they get lost... assuming the migration doesn't cause issue.

I just adopted Lacey and the microchipping, rabies, F-hiv and city lisencing, flea treatment and distemper shot was included in the outrageous cost of $25!! =D

That's ridiculous! I'd be furious if I had to pay that much! I wouldn't have coughed up a dime over $10.

Tina isn't and I didn't get the foster kitten chipped either. Animal control doesn't scan for them here and I know of only 1 vets office that does. I go to a vet in a different city.

It would be nice if they required chips and the chip # to be registered with AC.

The shelters here all scan for chips. There's 3 main brands that I know of and the shelter scans for 2 of them. The shelter also puts on microchip clinics, so the cats we haven't adopted from the shelter, we've been able to get chipped for $10. All of our cats are chipped, and so is the dog. I've looked into having the horse chipped, but scanning horses isn't common practice, so it wouldn't do much good.

Yep! The shelter they were adopted from actually won't allow the adoption to take place unless you agree to the microchipping process (along with the animals being spayed or neutered). When we told our vet, the first thing they told us was make sure that they are actually registered and that we keep that information up to date on the microchipping website.

To microchip my two, it was part of the adoption fees, so it worked out to be cheap. We've looked into getting my roommate's cat microchip and we were looking at range of $35-$40 although the local shelter has certain days/hours when they will do it for free. I know that you can probably check around to find for either free or cheaper -- just remember to register them after they are microchipped.

Yep, what Violina said. Vets here will do it for $30-40 ish, but often times there are clinics where you can have it done for free or cheap. The clinics put on by the shelter here cost $10 for microchips and they have them every 2-3 months.

I think our Humane Society does it once a month for $20.
