Microchipping Day

The free Microchipping Day for cats and dogs is back! If you have any questions about your pet’s care, come down and talk to the friendly pet experts from Council’s Animal Services team, Animal Welfare, RSPCA, Cat Protection Society and Greencross Vets.

Microchipping your pet is an important part of their care. If they ever wander away, vets, animal shelters and our Rangers can scan their microchip and reunite you with your friend.

Why microchip?
The microchip contains information such as your name, address and best contact phone number, which is why it’s important to make sure that if you move or change your phone that you update your pet’s microchip, too.

This identifying information will be used to reunite you with your pet if they are ever lost.

What does microchipping entail?
Microchipping is a simple and quick procedure and involves a small chip the size of a rice grain being implanted in the back of the neck above the shoulder blade.

What animals are you microchipping?
We’re only microchipping cats and dogs at this time.

How do I bring my cat or dog to the event?
Please make sure all dogs are on a leash and all cats are in a carrier.

I have some questions I’d like to ask on the day.
If you have any questions about your pet’s care, microchipping and registration, desexing, would like a desexing discount voucher, or would like your pet to receive a free health check, come by and see Council’s Animal Services team, Greencross Vets, RSPCA, Cat Protection Society, and Animal Welfare League.
