SEATTLE — Snohomish County pet owners can bring their dogs and cats to Langus Park in Everett Saturday for a free microchip. Up to 200 microchips will be offered at Everett’s Mutt Strut, but the program is only available to Snohomish County residents.

The city is sponsoring the event as a way to reunite lost and stray pets with their owners, in turn reducing costs to city animal shelters.

Mutt Strut runs from 10 a.m. until noon Saturday, Aug. 10, at Langus Park, 400 Smith Island Rd., across from the Everett Animal Shelter. Cats must be in a carrier and dogs must be on a leash.

    Micro chipping starts out as cute little thing for dogs and cats and then ultimately ends up as forced tags and tracking for the NSA through Obamacare omnipotence enforced by 40,000 new IRS agents trained with standoff and fight assault weapons and a badge of authority that also takes dues from your bank account. Thanks for voting Demorat, now my grandchildren will be manacled.
