To book an appointment for your dog, call your nearest Dogs Trust rehoming centre.
Clarissa Baldwin, Chief Executive of Dogs Trust explains the importance of the microchip:
“The reality is that no matter how responsible an owner you are there is always a chance your dog could get lost or stolen; microchipping is the most effective way to help a lost dog to be returned to their owner.
Sadly, once a dog without a chip ends up at a pound, the pound’s staff have no way of knowing whether that dog is is a much loved family pet or an abandoned stray. After their seven statutory day period, anything could happen to him.”
