Microchip Your Dog – Without Delay!
It has been announced that from 6th April 2016 every owner in England will have to have their dog micro-chipped` by law. According to the government, owners who don't comply risk facing fines of up to £500.
In 2011 126,176 stray dogs were picked up by dog wardens and other welfare organisations. Of these, 31% were reunited as a result of being microchipped and a further 6% thanks to their collar tag.
Microchips offer a more permanent way of making sure your pet is always identifiable and that you can always be contacted in the event of them being found.
