Calling all Dog Owners - Free Microchipping on 13 and 30 March

Home » News » Is your Dog Chipped?

Did you know that from the 6th of April 2016, all dogs must be microchipped and registered to an approved database by the time they are 8 weeks old? No dogs are exempt.

The microchip is a tiny computer chip that is compatible with living tissue. It is implanted between your dog's shoulder blades, under the skin, with a needle and special syringe. Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediately with a handheld device which identifies their unique chip which is registered by the vet on a database. Whilst collars and tags are still essential and required by law, they can fall off or become damaged.

Microchipping your pet provides a permanent method of pet identification and offers the best chance being reunited with your dog if it should go missing.
Visit your local vet to get chipped!

Dogs Trust will be carrying our free microchipping at the following events...
Mar 19 @ 10:00 am — 12:00 pm — St Cyril's Children & Youth Project — Liverpool @ St Cyril's Children & Youth Project

Mar 30 @ 11:00 am — 3:00 pm — Kellys K9 Kutz, Liverpool @ Kellys k9 Kutz
