Free dog Micro-chipping @ the Dogs trust.

The law's now changed (as of Apr 2016)... All dogs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland must be micro-chipped. . This will normally set you back around £20 at your local vets.

The good people at the Dogs Trust, are running a free chipping service. Locations can be found via the link.

Please donate anything you can, to help keep this charity running.

I've put this in Deals, as free over £20 is a deal in my eyes.

My apologies if this has been posted before. I did search but couldn't find anything.

I did see this somewhere else, and thought it would be good to post here. So a thanks to the original poster.

That's a barking mad deal! All I need now is a dog. (_;)

it's a good money saver-however, you're taking funds away from a charity which could be spending that money on better things. Why should they spend charity money on keeping you legal???

maybe donate £20 to the charity, rather than paying it to the vets?

They are doing this because they can't get rid of their money fast enough.

Why not make a donation while you're having your dog chipped? Win win then. I'd imagine DT think its cheaper in the long run to offer this for free rather than having an unchipped stray in their kennels for possibly years.

​I'm sure the charity directors pay is helping them hemorrhage money, that's why I stopped donating to them. How many charities have a Lord, Lady or some other rich person getting paid vast amounts for 10 directorships or more and rely on other staff to do work for nothing. It seems this is another them and us initiative.

Heat from me. This is how we chipped our dog

It's because we're a fickle bunch on here.

DT have been running this promo for a long time now, but it's a handy reminder for those unaware.

Thanks.

Yep the search function is a little to picky at times. If it's not the exact same wording, it often returns with nothing. It looks like it was posted 4 months a go. So it's ok as a reminder or for people who missed the first post.

"This is somewhat embarrassing' isn't it?

It seems we cant find what you're looking for. Perhaps searching can help."




Looks like Scotland votes for independence and stays in the EU

Dont bother searching, english dogs arriving at the border will be welcome but their human owners will not be allowed past a thing called a immigration check at a thing called a border, non EU nationals in England can advise what both these are and how to get past them - them immigrants will come in handy after all


Regardless of whether you think some of the management are paid too much, they are a registered charity and will have a certain level of scrutiny over the way they are run. However as a charity it amazes me how many dog owners just milk them for free chipping and free neutering and other things they have done. If you want to own a dog, then you have to pay for the costs of owning that dog and shouldn't be taking money from a charity to do so. I have no idea why DT don't means test it, or link it to benefits, but perhaps the administration for that is a nightmare, but anyway, people should just take a moment and think about it before they jump in and take the freebie.

Do you think they'd chip the kids for me?

Why would you want to do that? It means someone brings them back!!

Dog's Trust also offer a free service where they will come to your home and microchip your dog or litter of puppies for free.
This isn't advertised but if you phone they give you the implanters phone number to make an appointment.
I'm not sure if this is nationwide, but definitely covers all of Yorkshire.
I breed dogs and they've come out to me 4 times this year.
