Chelsea Academy of Dog Obedience Donates a Microchip reader, Slip Leads to Chelsea PD

Photo by Randall Lee, RK Studios, LLC. Jeremy Montange of the Chelsea Academy of Dog Obedience donates equipment to Chelsea Police Chief Kevin Kazyak to assist the police in returning lost dogs to their owners.

Jeremy Montange, owner and operator of the Chelsea Academy of Dog Obedience, recently donated a Universal Microchip Scanner and slip leads for each police car, to the Chelsea Police Department to assist them in dealing with escaped pets. 

This microchip scanner will assist the Chelsea Police Department in identifying stray animals during times when local veterinary clinics are not open.

Previously, animals without a license or owner identification tag that were captured after office hours of veterinary clinics were taken directly to the Humane Society or kept at the station—which isn’t designed to house stray animals—until clinics reopened and the animals could be scanned for a microchip.

Sgt. Rich Kinsey said, “The microchip reader will add an option for pets that are chipped. With the reader, hopefully we will be able to quickly identify the owner and have them come get their pet.”

For those instances where a dog has slipped its collar, the new slip leads and chip reader will assist Chelsea officers in identifying and returning microchipped pets to their owners.

The Chelsea Police Department and the Chelsea Academy of Dog Obedience remind pet owners to license their dogs, keep their rabies vaccinations up to date and attach these tags to the dogs’ collar.  More importantly the dog’s name and pet owner’s phone number are especially handy to assist police to promptly return lost pets.  

The Chelsea Academy of Dog Obedience is a dog obedience school operating in and around the Chelsea Area and can be contacted at: 734-649-4652.
