Free chips for furry friends

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A FREE mi­crochip­ping day for dogs and cats will be held to­mor­row in Kir­wan.

Townsville City Coun­cil is run­ning the event to pro­mote re­spon­si­ble pet own­er­ship.

Com­mu­nity Health and En­vi­ron­ment Com­mit­tee chair Coun­cil­lor Ann- Ma­ree Gre­aney said the coun­cil was mak­ing it eas­ier for res­i­dents to keep their pets safe.

“No book­ings are re­quired to bring a pet along, and all reg­is­tered dogs and ap­proved cats over the age of eight weeks are el­i­gi­ble,” she said.

For pets that are not reg­is­tered, own­ers can take ad­van­tage of on- the- spot regis­tra­tion.

Once reg­is­tered, pets are then el­i­gi­ble for free mi­crochip­ping.

The event is from 8- 11am at Mountview Dog Park, Bam­ford Lane, Kir­wan.
