Free dog microchipping offer
DOG-owners are being invited to take advantage of a free microchipping service.
The service is being offered as part of National Microchipping Month, which is taking place this month, and is being organised by Durham County Council in partnership with the Safe Durham Partnership, Stray Aid and Deerness Kennels.
If a dog is found after being lost or stolen it is easier to trace its owners if it has been microchipped.
The free service is available to any County Durham resident with a dog over 12-weeks-old which has had its first injections.
Events are being held as follows:
● Wednesday, June 13, 10am until 2pm at Easington Social Welfare Club, Seaside Lane Back, Easington Colliery;
● Saturday, June 23, 10am until 2pm at Peterlee Leisure Centre (rear entrance), St Cuthbert’s Way, Peterlee.
Dog owners who are unable to attend any of the free sessions can arrange to have their pet microchipped by contacting Stray Aid, on 0300 9994247 to arrange an appointment.
People taking their dog to be microchipped are asked to take along a utility bill showing the County Durham address to where the dog will be registered.
