Residents in Liverpool Plains Shire can get their pets microchipped for free on Tuesday 1st September at the Companion Animal Facility, Merinda Road Quirindi.
Mayor Andrew Hope said it is very important for pet owners to ensure their animals are microchipped and to keep contact details up to date.
“It is very important to ensure your pet cat or dog is microchipped because Section 8 of the NSW Companion Animals Act requires microchipping of cats and dogs prior to sale/transfer and by 12 weeks of age. Furthermore, if your pet cat or dog becomes lost, you are far more likely to be reunited if they are microchipped,” said Mayor, Andrew Hope.
The service will commence at 10 am and bookings are essential to ensure COVID Safe requirements can be met.
You can book by contacting Liverpool Plains Shire OCuncil Customer Service during business hours on 6746 1755.
