Microchipping - An animal may have had an identification microchip implanted beneath its skin. Most clinics and shelters now scan for microchips. A microchip greatly increases the chances that an animal can be reunited with its guardian. You can have your cat or dog microchipped at the SNAP Wellness Clinic or the SNAP Surgery Clinic (when having the animal sterilized). It's a smart idea to have your animal microchipped!
Rabies Tag Lookup - If an animal is wearing a rabies tag, it will usually have an ID number and contact information for the veterinary clinic where the animal was vaccinated. If you contact the clinic, they can usually look up the ID number to identify the animal's guardian. If the animal has a SNAP rabies tag, contact the local SNAP clinic in your area:
  Houston Clinic: Call 713-862-8001
  San Antonio Clinic: Call 210-673-7722 or send email to:
Shelters and Lost Animal Registries: Contact as many shelters and lost animal registries as you can. Many have links to other shelters and registries on their websites, so be sure to check for them.
