ABILENE, Texas -

"Check the Chip" day is on Friday and Abilene's local animal shelter is making sure your furry friend is properly chipped.

If your dog or cat runs away or gets lost, microchipping can help get him back home safely. It's also important to remember to keep the information on your chip updated.

Abilene Animal Shelter is teaming with ACCO Farm and Ranch Center to host a microchip clinic for those who don't have their pets chipped already.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m Friday at 249 S. 11th St.

If you are interested in keeping your pet tracked, it'll only cost you $10.
