Free Dog Microchips Available to Dartford Residents
Last Updated: 11 Mar 2019 10:57am
We are teaming up with Dogs Trust to offer free dog microchipping, free poo bags, general dog health and wellbeing advice, and an opportunity for Dartford residents to talk about any dog related issues in their neighbourhood on Tuesday 12th March 2019 at ASDA Greenhithe Superstore, Crossways Boulevard from 9am-1pm.
Look out for the Dartford Borough Council gazebo in the far right hand corner of ASDA car park near the ATM machines. There’s no need to book but dogs must be on a safe collar/harness and lead.
In 2016, it became a legal requirement for all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales to be microchipped by the time they are 8 weeks old. The chip contains the owner’s contact details so that if a dog goes missing or is stolen, it can be returned to its owner quickly and safely. You can be fined up to £500 if your dog is not microchipped.
