It has been exciting to hear so many families have added furry family members in the past weeks and months with the COVID-19 pandemic and so many people staying at home. There is no doubt in my mind that pets make life better, after a long day at work it's always nice to get love from my dogs as I walk through the front door.

But as we all know having a pet is a real responsibility and we have to take care of them. And that begins with making sure they are microchipped it truly is one of the best ways to find a lost pet and losing a family member is something no one should have to go through.

The great people at the Roice-Hurst Humane Society are celebrating National Micro-chipping month in June with an event on Monday, June 1st. The event will take place at their location at 362 28 Road in Grand Junction.
