Veterinarians and groomers teamed up on Sunday to put on a benefit for their four-legged friends.

The second annual Chip-n-Clip event took place at Miranda's Smooch a Pooch Salon in Superior from 1 to 4 p.m. The event offered free grooming and discounted microchips for pets. All donations went to the Humane Society of Douglas County.

Veterinarian and Pet Care of Duluth Owner Amanda Bruce said the microchips are an important part of the event.

"That is your permanent identification," she said. "If your pet ever slips its collar and gets loose, we want to make sure that not only are we financially supporting the humane society today, but we're making their work a little bit easier. ... We're making it easier for homeless pets to find their way back home if they ever get out."

Bruce said about 20 people visited the event. They raised $325, plus some supplies that were donated for the humane society.
