One week to go un­til com­pul­sory chip­ping

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Days be­fore mi­crochip­ping be­comes com­pul­sory in Scot­land, Ruther­glen MP Mar­garet Fer­rier is re­mind­ing lo­cals to get their dog chipped and help keep them safe.

Mar­garet teamed up with Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog wel­fare char­ity, to raise aware­ness of mi­crochip­ping law changes com­ing into ef­fect on Wed­nes­day, April 6.

Free chip­ping is avail­able by ap­point­ment at the Dogs Trust re­hom­ing cen­tre on Hamil­ton Road in Ud­dingston.

Ms Fer­rier MP said: “I know how much my con­stituents love their dogs, and mi­crochip­ping is a fan­tas­tic way of be­ing reunited with your four-legged friend in the aw­ful sce­nario that they should be­come sep­a­rated. Most dogs in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are al­ready chipped, but if yours isn’t then please make sure you get it done be­fore the law comes into force next week.”
