Following the success of a free dog micro chipping event in West Heath Park earlier this month, dog wardens have teamed up with the PDSA to hold another.
The event in West Heath saw 68 dog owners take their pets to be chipped by the council’s dog wardens and Birmingham Dogs Home.
The next local event will be held in Northfield Sainsbury’s car park between 9am – 4pm on Tuesday 9th April where you can get a FREE pet check, collar ID and microchip for your dog.
It’s actually a legal requirement for any dog in a public place to wear a collar with the name and address of the owner engraved or written on it, or engraved on a tag. Your telephone number is optional (but advisable).
We get plenty of lost and found dogs posted to us via twitter and facebook – please take advantage of this great initiative and lets get more of those dogs chipped!
