Date Added: 13/06/2014 @ 10:00am
Tiverton MP, Neil Parish, has shown his support for micro chipping your pets as he joins a campaign to help save thousands of dogs in the UK, that without micro chipping, would otherwise be destroyed.
It is said that each year 8,000 dogs are lost or damaged due to not being micro chipped.
The Kennel Club are also endorsing this campaign as part of their ‘micro chipping month’, an event taking place in Old Palace Yard, Westminster. The event launched the ‘Chip it, Check it’ campaign to alert the public of the new law being enforced in April 2016, making it compulsory to micro chip your pet and keeping contact details up to date.
Mr Parish said on the subject, “In the countdown to compulsory micro chipping, National micro chipping month is an ideal reminder for people to ‘Chip it, Check it.’
We at Tiverton Canal fully support micro chipping month, and hope that you do too. So if you haven’t micro chipped your furry friend, do so now. And for those of you who have, make sure your details are up to date on the micro chipping database, you can both here.
