Free dog microchipping available in Sandwell
9:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
DOGS can be microchipped for free during Sandwell’s Safer 6 campaign due to a joint initiative between the council and Dogs Trust.
Microchipping, which will be compulsory in 2016, helps dogs be reunited with their owners if lost or stolen.
Councillor Mahboob Hussain, Sandwell Council's deputy leader and cabinet member for town and neighbourhood services, said: "I'd like to thank Dogs Trust for putting on these free events for our Safer 6 campaign.
"I would encourage dog owners who haven't yet had their dogs microchipped to take advantage of this opportunity."
The Dogs Trust will be microchipping on Monday, October 21, at 9.30am to 12.30pm, Addenbrooke Court in Cradley Heath and 2.30pm to 4.30pm at Darley House and Wallace Close, Oldbury and Wednesday, October 23, between 9.30am to 1pm at St Giles Court, Rowley Regis.
