Microchipping Day for non-conforming canines

The Glen Innes branch of the RSPCA, in conjunction with Glen Innes Severn Council, is holding a Microchipping Day this weekend and all dog owners who are yet to get their pet chipped are encouraged to attend.

The day will take place on Saturday, March 31 from 10am until 1.30pm, at Lions Park in East Ave. Owners can get their dog microchipped for only $20.

Although the event is for dogs only, cats can be booked in by appointment.

As it is illegal not to have your dog microchipped, the day presents the perfect opportunity for new owners or those yet to organise their pet’s microchipping.

Glen Innes RSPCA president Margaret Pennington said pet microchips are a great piece of technology.

“If a dog is microchipped and gets lost or stolen, as soon as it is scanned we can find out who the owner is,” she said.

Meanwhile, Mrs Pennington said the RSPCA also has a number of pets waiting to be adopted.

“We have cute kittens and dogs waiting for homes,” she said.

“All dogs come microchipped, desexed, vaccinated and wormed.”
