KPFL Microchipping Program - The microchipping program was begun in February 2012 and 46 dogs and 4 cats were microchipped that year. In 2013 34 dogs and 5 cats were microchipped. At least once a month microchipping is offered at the KPFL Shelter. Call 293-4936 to make an appointment.

The charge is $10 if you have the pet done at the time of adoption from KPFL. It is $15 if you have a pet that was adopted from KPFL at an earlier date. For $35 anyone with a pet can make an appointment and bring their pet in for microchipping.

Ferel Cat Program - We have a feral cat program that has been funded by a Sands Foundation grant. An appointment can be made to bring in a feral cat for spay or neuter and vaccinations. The cat's ear will be clipped and the cat will be released back to the same area. Since 2011 through this program we have spayed or neutered over 288 cats. For more details on this program call 293-4936

Two happy kittens ..." Only about 3 weeks different in age, they “roomed” together at KPFL.   It’s so fun to watch them play and to hear the thunder of kitty feet as they charge around the house!  They are also great snugglers and very affectionate!!  They are good buddies and have been a delightful addition to our household!! "
