Free microchipping for dogs @ The Dogs Trust

Free microchipping for dogs - book an appointment in advance at any of 18 Dogs Trust venues.

Get your dog microchipped by booking an appointment (subject to availability) at one of the Dogs Trust Rehoming Centres. Any breed, two months old or over can be microchipped and have the details stored on the database.

The Dogs Trust is a charity, so donations are gratefully received.

There are no restrictions on how many dogs can be microchipped per owner, as long as you book an appointment in advance at one of the 18 Dogs Trust Rehoming Centres.

Detailed info:
Your dog gets a free microchip, the size of a grain of rice, inserted under the skin between the shoulder blades. Vets usually charge around £30 for the procedure. Owners also get their details stored on the microchip database for free.

The tiny implant includes a unique ID number which means if your dog goes missing, it's easier to trace as the code can be read by radio-wave scanners. The process takes about 10 minutes. For more information, see dogstrust.org.uk/az/…spx

Will the law apply throughout the UK?

The law will not cover Scotland and Wales; Northern Ireland already has compulsory microchipping (and licencing). However, our centres in Glasgow, West Calder, Ballymena and Bridgend have all offered free chipping by appointment since December 2011 and will continue to do so; they will also hold free microchipping weekends.

Almost worth buying a dog to get this free. Hot

Made me laugh a lot, especially the guy who took it to a vet.

ferret.... LOL. Thats funny.

Voted hot, it's so important to get your dogs microchipped but also to update details when anything changes too!

Believe it or not a similar thing happened to me,I bought a baby corn snake, down the pub, for the kids after a few beers only to discover the next morning it was actually a rather large garden worm! True story honest!

Heat!, Hot Dawgs!

Lovely scheme. But I really wish they would stop cold-calling and knocking on my door. Other than that, all power to them.

Voted hot. In my book if you have a dog or cat, it is your responsibility to get them chipped as soon as possible and keep the details up to date.

Good deal - bear in mind some councils will also do this for free (ie Hackney)

Shame Labour aren't still in power, we might all be getting this for free.
