In the event, your dog has been roaming or is unregistered and has been collected by animal services we will want to have you reunited with your furry friend as quickly as possible. Having a micro-chipped dog is the best way in which we can assure this happens. Once your dog is micro-chipped be sure to contact council to have the number recorded as your vet won’t do this.
Ensure your contact details are always current so that if your dog ends up at the pound, reuniting you with your fur baby can be done as quickly as possible. If you move or change phone or email information you can easily update your details online.
Micro-chipping your dog is not only a legal requirement but it allows for you to be reunited quickly and with minimal stress for your best furry friend. If your dog isn’t microchipped or you want to confirm the microchip number, bring your pet to the pound on a Monday. We can microchip your dog for $30 and update your information on the national dog register. To book in contact us on 07 577 7000.
