New Compulsory Dog Microchipping Law
As of the 6th April 2016 it has become mandatory that ALL dog owners have their dog microchipped from 8 weeks of age.
To ensure that you comply with the new law call us on 01592 328191 and book your appointment to have your dog microchipped and make sure your dog can be returned to you should they stray or are stolen.
Dogs Trust also state that Microchipping your dog can also provide other benefits such as;
Puppies are traceable to their breeder thereby helping reduce the problem of puppy farming and lessening the incidence of infectious disease and inherited defects from which many of these dogs suffer
It acts as a deterrent to dog thefts.
Allows for the quick return of your dog (or cat), meaning that local authorities are able to emphasise to the dog owners concerned that straying is not acceptable, the intention being that this education will lessen the likelihood of a dog straying again and reinforce the responsibilities of the owners under the Animal Welfare Act 2006
Easier identification and subsequent arrests of owners culpable of animal cruelty
Enables veterinary surgeons to contact dog owners for emergency procedures
Allows identification of dogs in properties in emergency situations so that dogs and owners can be moved and reunited more quickly
Have your Rabbit, Cat or Dog Microchipped at Home
If your pet gets very stressed at even the thought of travelling we can microchip your dog or cat for you at home if you are in the local vicinity*. Just contact us for more details.
Microchipping is a quick, almost painless procedure, similar to your dog or cats annual vaccination injection which permanently identifies your pet in case they go missing.
If your dog or cat is found by a rescue centre, dog warden or police by the use of a microchip scanner they can obtain the pets ID number from the microchip, enabling us to trace you, the owner, within minutes.
Implanting takes just a few seconds for a lifetime of peace of mind.
£10 per animal microchipped is valid all year round at the Cat Care Centre, a price that is hard to beat I’m sure you will agree. This fee covers the cost of the microchip, registration fee and a small implant fee, which goes directly to Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue funds to help with our rescue work.
Your microchip will be instantly electronically registered and a receipt issued, to prove compliance with the dog microchipping law, by Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue and you will receive confirmation via post from AVID Plc, our microchip supplier and database registrar within 7 – 10 working days.
You can also have your existing microchip implants checked to ensure they are working at any time. Simply pop along and we will be happy to scan your chip to make sure it is working and give you peace of mind completely FREE of any charge.
If you have any questions about having your cat, rabbit or dog microchipped please just get in touch and we will happily talk you through the procedure.
