ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An East Albany veterinarian encourages you to micro-chip your pets as he searches for the owner of an injured dog.

Dr. Fred Freeland calls her "Jane Dog" instead of Jane Doe.

He found the approximately 8-year old lab mix injured in a ditch close to his office Monday,  most likely hit by a car.

Freeland worries if he turns her over to animal control, she'll be put down.

He says if she were micro-chipped it would be easy to find her owner.

Starting a week from Saturday, his non-profit animal hospital will offer low-cost micro-chipping.

"I think that's important," said Dr. Fred Freeland.  "Because the statistics are just very disappointing for pets that aren't microchipped."

If you have any information about  "Jane Dog", call Albany Pet Partners at 432-0717.

Starting November 9th and continuing each Saturday through the end of the year, Dr. Freeland will microchip pets for $15 each.
