Dog Day Afternoon


Live 5 viewers began lining up a half-hour before the microchipping event began.

With the help of the Charleston Animal Society, we hosted a low-cost microchipping event in the front parking lot of our station. Between the hours of 4:00pm and 7:00pm, pet owners could bring their dogs and puppies and have them microchipped for just $10, a substantial savings for the service.

We had pet owners begin lining up with their four-legged friends at around 3:00pm, and by 8:00pm Tuesday night, we were wrapping up the last of the microchipping. The Charleston Animal Society estimated that about 230 dogs and puppies were chipped.


This Boykin Spaniel puppy was one of more than 200 dogs that were microchipped.

Thanks to all of those who dropped by to get their pets protected. If you weren’t able to come out, click here to visit the Charleston Animal Society’s website for more information about upcoming events.
