Members of the Fresno State Pre-Vet club spent their day vaccinating and placing microchips in local dogs.

Students hosted a walk-up clinic Saturday on campus. They offered DHPP and rabies shots for $10 and microchips for $20.

Organizers say it's all done to offer low cost service to the community to help keep local pets healthy and safe. "If anyone finds a dog, takes to a shelter, or a vet clinic any vet clinic they can scan it and find it," president of the club Jennifer Artinian explained. "You just call the microchip company and if it's registered, registering is very important. Then you can find the owners, so it's the quickest way a dog can get back to their owners."

The clinic is an annual event at Fresno State, but this is the first year it included microchips.
