1) Somerville gets microchip scanner for lost pets
The Massachusetts Animal Control Coalition donated a microchip scanner to Somerville Animal Control, according to an announcement from the coalition. The scanner allows animal control officers April Terrio-Manning and Rachel Taylor to search lost pets for microchips, which contain information about a lost pet and its owner. The microchips are about the size of a grin of rice and can make the difference in reuniting pets and their families, the announcement says. At a recent presentation of the scanner, Somerville State Sen. Pat Jehlen spoke of the importance of microchipping, according to the announcement.
