The Dogs Trust in partnership with the Fareham and Gosport Environmental Health Partnership will be offering free micro chipping for dogs during May.
Microchipping is a small implant the size of a grain of rice. The microchip is coded with a unique number that can be read by scanners that help identify lost or stolen pets and return them to their owners.
You can get your dogs microchipped by the Dogs Trust between 11am -3pm at the following:
Head of Environmental Health at Fareham Borough Council, Ian Rickman said: "I would encourage dog owners to take up the free micro chipping service. We aim to get as many dog owners as possible to microchip their pets before the 6th April 2016, when new legislation makes micro chipping compulsory for all dogs in England."
More information about the Dogs Trust and micro chipping can be found online at www.chipmydog.org.uk/ .
