Mi­crochip saves the day

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Nuts & Bolts -

Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil and Vic­to­ria have both said Dolce’s re­turn is an ex­am­ple of why dogs should be mi­crochipped.

An ABC spokesman added: “Dolce the bull ter­rier was col­lected by our dog war­den on Fri­day, Jan­uary 8 af­ter she was re­ported stray­ing around the Sha­dox­hurst area.

“The dog’s mi­crochip was coded with the owner’s de­tails, al­low­ing the coun­cil to get in touch and take the dog home.

“This story high­lights the im­por­tance of mi­crochip­ping your pet.

“From April 6, 2016 the govern­ment will be in­tro­duc­ing com­pul­sory mi­crochip­ping for dogs to help tackle the rise of strays roam­ing the streets.”
