Removing a Dog from a Trap or Snare

This document is designed to provide dog owners with instructions on how to remove their dog from the three types of traps that are legal in Wisconsin-- the leg hold trap, snare, and body-gripping (Conibear type) trap.

Each year, many household pets are inadvertently trapped in these devices, which are legal (albeit controversial) in our area of Wisconsin. Please be aware that these dangers exist, and DO NOT let your dogs roam free without supervision.

Microchip Services

Reuniting lost or stolen pets with their owners is a top priority at the Lincoln County Humane Society. In addition to standard identification tags worn on a collar, we strongly recommend that your pet be permanently identified with a microchip. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice, and is implanted between the animal's shoulder blades. The microchip is encoded with a one-of-a-kind number that will be kept at the Lincoln County Humane Society and also registered in the Petpoint Software national database at no additional cost to you. Once a lost pet arrives at an animal shelter or veterinary clinic, a handheld scanner can be used to identify the unique number on the implanted microchip and the owner is identified and contacted. The implantation procedure takes only a few seconds and is relatively painless to the animal. Pets of all species, breeds, and ages can be microchipped. A microchip is not a tracking device or GPS transmitting device. Animals with mircochips cannot be tracked or monitored from a remote location.

LCHS offers microchip implantation and registration through Petpoint for $25. We use the minichips from 24PetWatch because the smaller chips cause less discomfort for the animal during insertion. If your pet already has a microchip but you're not sure if it's registered, please make an appointment with LCHS to scan and evaluate the chip. We will also register or update information on already implanted chips for FREE!
