Council’s Community Safety team is holding a pet microchipping and registration day on Saturday 19 September 2015.

Microchipping provides a permanent form of identification which can quickly reunite owners with lost or injured pets. From 2007, all dogs and cats registered for the first time with Council, must be microchipped.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a tiny computer chip the size of a grain of rice, which has a number programmed to it. The chip is inserted under the pet’s skin between the shoulder blades and is a simple procedure. To identify the animal, a scanner that reads microchips is passed over the pet’s skin. The scanned number can then be checked against a register, to obtain the owner’s contact details.

Microchipping bookings are required. Please contact Julie Breed, Compliance Officer, on 5321 6444 or email jbreed@hepburn.vic.gov.au to secure your appointment.

Cost: $30 per pet microchipped (does not include pet registration)
Where: Council Customer Service, Duke Street Daylesford
When: Saturday 19 September 2015, between 9:30am-12:30pm

Dogs must be on leash. Cats must be in a carrier.
