The two youngest visitors to receive a free microchip today were Tyson and Cookie, 8 week old Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The adorable brother and sister were brought to the event by owner Lizzie Mcloughlin of Northfield.

86 dogs were given microchips for free today at a pet health event held at Northfield Sainsburys. 

The event was jointly run by the PDSA and Birmingham City Council dog wardens.

A similar event, run by dog wardens and Birmingham Dogs’ Home in West Heath Park last month, saw a further 68 dogs receive chips.

As well as free health checks and microchips, dog owners were offered free pet tags and dog poo bags.

Attendees could also apply for vouchers to help towards the cost of neutering their pet. If you couldn’t make the event, you can request a neutering voucher from dog wardens by completing an online form at http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/sseenvhealth – make sure you select “Animal Welfare” when completing the form.

If you missed these two events, the PDSA and dog wardens will be doing more around the city this week. Visit the PDSA website to check for details
