East Lindsey District Council dog micro-chipping in Louth

EAST Lindsey District Council has added more dates to its dog micro-chipping roadshow.

Figures released by the Dog’s Trust suggest that the number of stray dogs are at an 11 year high and the council hopes that micro-chipping will help address the issue

The microchip costs £10 and is the size of a grain of rice. It contains all the owners contact details and is inserted in the dog’s shoulder blade.

The next dog micro-chipping sessions take place as follows:

Wednesday, May 23 between 11am and 2pm at The Co-op, Northgate, Louth

Wednesday May 30 between 12.30pm and 2.30pm at The White Horse, Louth

Friday June 8 between 10.30am and 1pm at The Meridian Centre, Louth
