Equine microchips help unite horses with owners after wildfires
AURORA, Colo. -- Horses attending an event at Arapahoe Park Saturday had a chance to be microchipped by a veterinarian as part of a campaign to encourage owners to protect their animals by getting them chipped. As Dr. Lois Toll dealt out microchips on Saturday, she said they are the one true way to positively identify a horse's owner. She said the practice has been around for 15 years, but is increasing in popularity and -- in some situations -- a microchip is required.
