Get your dog chipped for free

Free micro chipping events for dogs in Purbeck

Dog owners can get their dogs micro chipped free of charge this spring in Upton and Wareham.

Events, organised by the Dogs Trust in partnership with Purbeck District Council, are taking place from 11am to 3pm on the following dates:

·         Thursday 9 April
The Upton Community Centre car park, Poole Road, Upton  BH16 5JA

·         Wednesday 6 May
Hauses Field, Northmoor, near Wareham

·         Wednesday 10 June
Recreation Ground, Worgret Road, Wareham   BH20 4PQ

Richard Conway, Environment Manager at Purbeck District Council, said:  “Dog micro chipping will become compulsory in 2016 for all dogs, so why not take advantage of these free events and get your dog chipped free of charge.”

Richard continued:  “Having your dog micro chipped is one of the best ways to increase its chances of getting home if lost or stolen.  Don’t forget, the law also states that all dogs must wear a collar and tag, with their owner’s name, address and telephone number.”
