Make sure your name, address, email address and phone number information is current with the microchip registry company. Is your emergency contact and vet clinic info current? If not, National Check the Chip Day is a reminder to update your pet’s microchip.
"Pflugerville Animal Shelter sees many animals come in as strays that have microchips but the chip was never registered or was registered, but the owner contact information (phone numbers, address, email) is no longer valid," Shelter Director Rhonda McLendon said. "This means we are often unable to find the owner. This happened with Carla (pictured) who has been at our shelter for months because her chip information was out-of-date. She is up for adoption."
It is recommended to have your veterinarian scan your pet when you take it in for its annual checkup to ensure the chip is still detectable. You should verify the registration information is still accurate. Consider having your pet’s microchip cross registered with other chip registries. If you are not sure if your pet’s microchip is registered or up to date, search the chip
http://www.petmicrochiplookup.org/ as well as call the chip manufacturer and your veterinarian. There are also databases where you can register your pet’s microchip for free, such as http://found.org and https://freepetchipregistry.com.
If your pet is not microchipped, consider getting it done today. Most veterinary clinics offer microchipping, and there are also low cost and free microchipping options for Travis County residents.
Council discusses zoning for the Commons at Heatherwilde and Pecan
City Council discussed a zoning designation on two tracts of land just west of Heatherwilde along FM 1825. What’s significant about this new zoning is the Commons at Heatherwilde and Pecan Planned Unit Development that intends to bring a mix of residential and commercial uses to the area.
On the west side of Pflugerville, this unique destination development will enhance the city’s gateway entry along Pecan because as you enter our city limits, a developer envisions a planned united development district with a mix of residential and commercial uses and a walkable environment with gathering areas. With a maximum of 1280 residential units, and 10.77 acres of park civic space, plus retail, your drive into Pflugerville will look much different when this project is complete.
The preliminary plan has been submitted for review and the rezoning request goes back for a second reading to council on August 23.
