Every year as part of our mission to be a pet resource for our community we offer Tag Day on the last Saturday in April—a day of low cost services that help keep pets safe and healthy. These services include $10 nail trims (performed by a volunteer groomer–all proceeds benefit homeless pets at HHHS), $10 rabies vaccinations, city licenses (proof of rabies vaccination required, so make sure to get that done first!) which are $8 if your pet is sterilized and $20 if they are not, and microchips. This year thanks to a generous donor the first 100 microchips will only be $10 each, and for each microchip sold, an adoptable cat at Helping Hands Humane Society will also be microchipped! All of our adoptable dogs are microchipped before moving to the adoption floor.

Please make sure your pet cats are in secure carriers and dogs are in a carrier or on a non-retractable leash for everyone’s safety and comfort. Tag Day is always very busy with many pets and their guardians from our community. If you have questions about pets other than cats or dogs, please call HHHS at 785-233-7325 and ask to speak to Margaret to clarify.

Margaret Price, Manager of Admissions/Lost & Found at HHHS and organizer of Tag Day says, “Unfortunately, the lost animals who come to Helping Hands can’t tell us their names, phone numbers, or addresses, so having identification in the form of a tag and/or microchip really helps us reunite them with their owners.”
