In the first of what is hoped to be a regular event, the Pampered Pooch Parlor in the heart of downtown Floresville sponsored a micro-chip/adoption day clinic July 21 for Las Lomas K9 Rescue & Adoption Foundation. Las Lomas hopes to help find homes for shelter dogs and make microchipping easily available and cost-efficient to the public.

Karen Smith, owner of the Pampered Pooch Parlor, said, “I wanted to help the shelter and the dogs in our community and thought this would be an excellent way!”

Many puppies and dogs available for adoption were featured at the clinic, including some recently rescued from the Floresville city animal facility. Several families took advantage of the clinic, helping to ensure the return of their pet should it become separated from its owner. Cody Brewton, an adoption counselor and foster parent for Las Lomas K9 Rescue, said, “Microchips are the best way to identify pets and reunite them with owners. Too often, pets picked up at the pound have collars but no metal tags which can fall off, but micro-chips last a lifetime.”

A bake sale, drawing, and silent auction also were held as a fund-raiser for the non-profit, no-kill shelter, which has operated in Wilson County for more than 10 years. Microchips are still available.

Anyone who is interested in chipping their dog, cat, or horse can visit Las Lomas K9 at, or call Pampered Pooch at 830-393-6592 for an appointment. The cost is $30.
