Ask your vet about micro-chipping.

an animal and would like it to be picked up, contact the cityís service helpline
by dialing 311, or 409-980-8311. Found animals or other surrenders can be

search for the owner, we recommend that you bring the animal in to have it
scanned for a microchip, and fill out a found pet report.
