The Hoof Beat January 2007

Councilmember Greuel Hosts January Horse Chip-A-Thon

Lake View Terrace--Councilmember Wendy Greuel hosted a horse chip-a-thon, to promote horse safety and offer low cost micro-chips to equine owners eager to track their animals. The Lake View Terrace Recreation Center was filled with horses, as veterinarians safely equipped equine with the micro-chips..

Councilmember Greuel, along with Animal Services and Recreation and Parks Departments, sponsored the event to ensure that horses could be re-united with their owners in case of natural disasters such as earthquakes and wildfires. Animal Services can scan the micro-chips implanted in misplaced horses, and immediately access the name and contact information of the horse owner.
