The Medway Community Safety Partnership will be providing free dog micro chipping at its up coming community engagement events.

Throughout April residents will have the opportunity to go along to the events to have their dogs chipped for free, pick up personal safety gadgets and speak to representatives from Medway Council, Kent Police and Kent Fire and Rescue Service.

The following CSP Community Engagement events will run from 10am to 2pm:
• Tuesday, 2 April – Christchurch car park in Luton Road, Chatham.
• Wednesday, 24 April – Strood High Street.

Free dog chipping is feasible thanks to the Dogs Trust who donated the microchips. Due to anticipated high demand, queues are likely. Medway Community Safety Partnership Chair Cllr Mike O’Brien said: “I encourage the people of Medway to come along to these community engagements to get free advice, recycling bags, safety items and dog micro chipping.

“It is so important to have your dog chipped as this means they can be easily found if missing, and at the same time it saves the council money dealing with less stray pets.
“I am very grateful to the Dogs Trusts for making it possible for us to offer this service.”
