What is a microchip?

Why is Dogs Trust offering free microchipping?

How do I go about getting my dog microchipped?

How and where is the microchip implanted?

Will it hurt my dog?

How are the owners traced?

What does the new law mean?

Do I have to pay to update my details?

Is there a fine/penalty if I don’t get my dog microchipped?

All dogs aged 8 weeks and over must now be microchipped (as of 6th April 2016). To be considered as microchipped, a microchip must have been implanted into your dog and your details recorded on an approved database. If your dog does not have a microchip, or if your current details are not recorded on an approved database, you may be served a notice giving you 21 days to comply. If you do not comply with the notice, you could face a fine of up to £500 on conviction. Alternatively an enforcer, such as a dog warden, may seize your dog, microchip it and register the details and then recover the cost from you.

I think that it's great they can do free microchipping for people who may not otherwise be able to afford it! Thanks so much for sharing, that's good to know for future!

This is a brillant idea although its law for all dogs to be microchipped now, maybe this will encourage those owners to get this sorted

This is such a step forward. It was only a few years ago that if you were receiving Income Support or Housing Benefit that you would still have to find a £15 contribution. Sadly this put off many who had to choose between micro chipping their dog or paying for the essentials for their family.
