The Bangor Humane Society says it sees a spike in the number of animals coming in this time of year because the fireworks might scare pets and cause them to run away.

The Bangor Humane Society is teaming up with the Loyal Biscuit Co. in Brewer to insert microchips into dogs and cats.

The microchips are inserted right between the animal’s shoulder blades. The entire process takes about five minutes.

If you want to get your pet microchipped, the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland has a $20 per-pet special happening right now. The deal lasts until Tuesday.

You can also get your pet microchipped at the Bangor Humane Society for $25, according to WVII.
