The Branch regret that the free microchipping service for cats and dogs on the first Saturday of every month has been discontinued due to a lack of take up of the service. Should you require a microchipping service please contact you local Veterinary Surgeon who will be please to advise you on the procedures. Should you require financial assistance with microchipping please contact the Branch Animal Welfare Administrator on the Branch Helpline.Microchipping your animal is an incredibly valuable and worthy exercise. All too often, our Inspectorate or local authorities pick up stray animals and cannot return them to their owners because there is no chip in the animal and the collar has either fallen off, been taken off or there was not one in the first place. By microchipping your pet you can ensure it will be returned to you if it is picked up by the RSPCA or other animal control agencies.
