Parkmall, Cebu’s first pet-friendly mall, will hold a series of exciting and unique pet activities this month highlighted by a groundbreaking move to provide free and low-cost microchip tags for pets for identification as it celebrates its 14th anniversary.
The mall will hold October Pets 2022 activities from Oct. 19-23 that will also coincide with Animal Wellness Month. Parkmall is committed to continue promoting responsible pet ownership, pet wellness examination and disease prevention, among others.
In an unprecedented move here, the low-cost microchip-tagging of pets on Oct. 22-23 will be the highlight of October Pets 2022. A prerequisite of the micro-chip implant is that pets must be updated with their anti-rabies vaccine.
Parkmall Chief Executive Officer and General Manager Engr. Neal Carlson Co , said “We, in Parkmall, firmly believe owning pets goes beyond their cuteness. Responsible pet ownership requires us to be knowledgeable. And as our lives become more intertwined with pets, we should be open and adapt to technological innovation that promotes the safety and wellness of pets and the community. “

IMPORTANCE OF MICROCHIP TAGS
Pets are implanted with a microchip using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that contains information like the pet owner’s information, updated vaccine information so they have a permanent ID. By scanning their tag, they can be identified and returned when lost. Microchip implants for pets will also be convenient for owners when they are brought along during travel.
Microchip-tagging usually costs P800 to P900, but during the Parkmall event, it is free for the first 30 pets registered on site on Oct 22-23. Beyond this number, the fee will be P350 per pet which includes microchipping, registration, and professional fee. This will be on a first come, first serve basis.
