Dogs must be microchipped by next April
A free micropping session will take place on Wednesday 7th October at Brent Lea Recreational Ground between 11am-4pm. Dogs must be on leads.
Hounslow dog owners have the chance to get their much-loved pets microchipped for free during a week-long programme of special dog events in October.
Microchipping dogs becomes law next April, so Hounslow Council - with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home – is keen for more owners to take up the opportunity and get their dogs microchipped for free. Microchipping helps keep furry friends safer and improves the chances of beloved pets being returned back home if they go missing.
At the sessions, residents will also be able to get their dogs tagged and information on how to get their dog neutered; as well as get support on dog handling from experts.
Councillor Richard Foote, Cabinet Member for Community Protection, Hounslow Council, said: “This is a free service so I urge all our dog owners who haven’t got their canine companions microchipped yet, to do so.
“Getting your dog microchipped is vital for keeping them safe and it will make it easier to return them if they get lost.”
