Bay Village City Council passed a resolution on Sept. 20 to accept the donation of a universal pet microchip scanner now at the Bay Village Police Department. This purchase and donation were made possible by a generous resident.

This will help expedite prompt identification and pets being returned to owners if they are microchipped. The city's animal control officer also has one in his vehicle that is shared with North Olmsted. 

This will save time for officers and residents who have found a pet and ensure prompt return to owners. 

Please microchip your pets. This can be done at any animal clinic and most pet stores. 

If your pet is microchipped please check that it is active and has current contact information assigned to it. 

Safety forces advise residents to contact them with any lost or found pets to help ensure the safe and prompt identification and return to families. Pet thefts and scams continue to be on the rise. Please keep your pets safe by keeping them from roaming, and maintain current identification and current photo.
