Local residents made use of a valuable community service in the micro-chipping of their pets this October

October saw the final free micro-chipping month for the year at Lithgow Animal Shelter. 36 animals in total took up the free service and are now guaranteed lifetime traceability.  These figures combined with the March micro-chipping month saw 80 animals receive free micro-chipping in total for the year.

“Well done to those local residents that took up this free service to micro-chip their four legged friends. This service is invaluable to the lifetime traceability of pets. ” Mayor of Lithgow, Councillor Ray Thompson said.

Microchipping your dog or cat helps keep them safe and means you can be reunited much quicker if your pet is lost. In NSW all dogs and cats must be microchipped by 12 weeks old or before being sold or given away (whichever happens first).

Have you checked your pet’s microchip information lately? The easiest way to update your pet’s microchip details is online at the NSW Govt. Pet Registry website.
