Compulsory Microchipping - From 6 April 2016

Despite lots of publicity in the press and on social media, there are still dogs coming through the pounds that are not microchipped.

Time is running out to comply with the new legislation which comes in to force in England, Scotland and Wales on April 6th 2016. From this date every dog will need to be microchipped and the keeper's contact details registered on a database.

Failure to comply could result in a £500 fine.

The Dogs Trust are currently offerring FREE microchipping at all their centres.
