"Should make a donation if you get it done though"

Good point.

However I find it really odd that they fund raise outside supermarkets using large stuffed toy dogs as props, instead of giving a potential rehomer dog or puppy a good day out, it says a lot about their emerging corporate mentality ; ask them about it when you see them.

they closed down the local chinese buffet restaurant recently as they found one of these in the food!

nice, i made a £10 donation with it, booked my appointment for next friday in kenilworth

Donate if possible, they rehome a lot of dogs.
The timing is great- expect a law to be passed today making microchipping compulsory.

ok, human micro chips very scary. My dogs are all micro chipped though, until they learn to talk and say their names and address X)
Dogs Trust great charity, not sure a homeless dog would necessarily appreciate being in a busy shopping precinct btw. Got one of my dogs from a local rescue centre where they ask you what sort of dog you are looking for before bringing the dog out to meet you. They don't let people walk round to view all the dogs as they say it disturbs the animals.

Fantastic,,, my dog is already micro chipped but i will be letting friends know

why do your friends need micro chipped?

Hot, lets hope they somehow make pet chipping compulsory to crack down on some of the low lives who abandon the dog for the stupidest of reasons!

I cant seem to find it in the uk branches ? help ? anyone,
only find in ireland dogstrust.org.uk/reh…spx

The law in Northern Ireland has changed!
As from April 2012 you must have your dog microchipped!

To assist dog owners to comply with this new requirement, Dogs Trust is offering FREE DOG MICROCHIPPING through local councils and vets, until the end of the year.

perfect for my girlfriend, she won't be getting away again!

This only seems to be for Ireland

Is it simular to when i got my xbox chipped?

Yes I think OP may need to change title.

speak to the animal/dog warden at your local council. Many are offering free or heavily subsided chipping and may even come to your house to do it.

Precisely my answer too

Microchip your pets by law? What I choose to have my dog not microchipped, I get a fine? Go to prison? In a free society? They are already microchipping humans, have been for a few years now. There are companies lobbying Governments to start chipping all immigrant workers and senile OAP's, and Governments are listening. Don't worry you normal proles will be sold the idea through benifits to yourself, such as keeping an eye on Grandad or your children, and most probably by being able to buy things in a supermarket just by swiping your microchipped hand. Your mobile smartphone is already an external microchip, you may not want one under your skin, but your children will if they are brought up being sold the idea, or Governments could just make it Law, as with your pets. Good luck, if there is hope, it lies within the proles

Microchip blah blah blah, humans blah blah blah

Human's will never be microchipped, because this crazy law they call Human Rights believe that it would be in violation of those rights. It will never be compulsory, though some have done in voluntarily, and good for them, but personally, not for me. In PC UK, you can almost guarantee that there is no chance of microchipping in humans being compulsory. Can't make that promise for the US though.

I'll happily be micro chipped. And yes, all dogs should be microchipped. No more lost dogs.

fab find - heat added - no dog, but a great offer (_;)

Good deal, nearest centre would cost more in petrol then paying for it but good for those that can get it.

Microchipping most animals should be compulsory. The amount that are abandoned and left on the streets, get stolen or just go missing is phenomenal, so it just makes sense. If all dogs and cats were microchipped, all it would take was for a dog warden, local rescue or vet to scan the animal to find out where it's come from, and all helps in terms of prosecution for stolen animals, dog baiting and other things...

Good on the Dogs Trust. All our dogs are already microchipped, but would also be tempted to do cats (and my girlfriend's rabbits, which are bigger than the average cat). Rated hot. Don't forget to give them a donation if you get animals microchipped with them.

i support the dogs trust 100%,my small poodle was savaged by a staffi in january this year,£300 vet bill dog was lucky to survive,it will haunt me forever,the dog just went straight for her throat.The staffi was about 4years old not microchipped,not claimed and it was put down,what good is micro chipping when the small group who own these dogs and give them abad name,breed them in thier living rooms get them chipped plus it wont stop any dog being dangerous.There are more and more dog on dog attacks and there is no law against this.Ive spoken to my mp and am not going to let this rest,DEFRA have done nothing to resolve this situation.

Thanks for posting OP - I heartily approve of free microchipping and I would like to see all pets done.

Welcome to HUKD, cindyboo; I am sorry to hear of this awful attack, glad that your pooch survived and well done for getting involved.

I saw on the news yesterday that there were over 200k reported dog assaults on people in England last year - what that included I don't know but it's a situation that needs to be tackled.

Thanks to everyone.

For those interested in the dangerous dogs debate DEFRA have started a consulation and is is seeking views on a proposed package of measures aimed at tackling irresponsible ownership of dogs. : http://www.defra.gov.uk/consult/2012/04/23/dangerous-dogs-1204/

The main proposals:

•Extending the criminal offence of allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control to private property (where the dog has a right to be);

•Compulsory microchipping of dogs;

•Removing the need to seize and kennel all dogs where court proceeding are pending; and

•Increase the fee for placing a dog on the Index of Exempted Dogs

The proposals, along with other work we are already carrying out, provide a mix of preventative, educational and punitive measures which are designed to tackle a variety of problems (e.g. allowing dogs to become dangerous, status dogs, allowing dogs to stray and general irresponsible ownership leading to poor welfare and anti-social behaviour).

How to respond

Anyone may reply to this consultation. Defra would like to hear from anyone with an interest in responsible dog ownership, including: enforcement agencies; people working with dogs; animal welfare organisations; dog keeping orgainsations; and the general public.

You can complete the survey on-line at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/dogsconsultation2012

This survey does not collect any personal data.

Alternatively, you can e-mail your response to: animalwelfare.consultations@defra.gsi.gov.uk

You may also send your comments, or any requests for copies of the documents, by post to:

Animal Welfare
Area 8B, 9 Millbank
c/o 17 Smith Square
London
SW1P 3JR

Any comments on the proposals in this consultation document should be sent by 15 June 2012.

If I had my way then all dog would have to be muzzled when out in public.
ALL dogs have the potential to be dangerous. Amazes me why we still continue to tolerate pseudo wolves in our public places.
