Chip-Chip-Hooray!

Have you ever wondered why animal care experts like veterinarians and shelters stress the importance of microchipping your pets? Sure, most of us love chips, but not those kind.

But, we think more along the lines of how often Stanley Subaru is there for the community, and especially for the SPCA and the homeless dogs and cats who call our shelter their…
