Taylor County Animal Shelter’s PetPoint system is going live on Thursday, March 15.
With the system, staff will be able to post information online about each animal available for adoption at the shelter.
And, with the program going live, every animal adopted will leave the shelter with a microchip implanted that contains electronic owner data. Magistrates voted in December to begin using the PetPoint program. A $500 deposit was required, though it will be returned after a year.
