Dogs Trust to offer free microchipping

Dog owners in Brechin will have the opportunity to have their dog microchipped for free, thanks to a dogs’ charity.

Dogs Trust are holding a microchipping event at Brechin Castle Garden Centre on Thursday (May 21) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event follows the decision from the Scottish Government to introduce compulsory microchipping for all dogs in Scotland form April 2016.

Compulsory microchipping has long been supported by Dogs Trust, and they are holding a variety of drop-in events across Scotland to allow owners to get their dog chipped for free.

The events will run until the legislation comes into force.
