FREE microchipping for your dog from Dogs Trust!

 At Dogs Trust events and now at participating vets!

Microchipping helps identify your dog if lost or stolen and it will soon be a legal obligation for all dogs to be chipped – so don’t miss out.

Microchipping will be compulsory from 6th April 2016 in England, and 1st March 2015 in Wales, following announcements made by the Westminster Government and the Welsh Government.
