A LOCAL pet shop are doing their bit to ensure local dogs are microchipped.

Next Thursday September 15, Dogs Trust and Carlton Pet Supplies are holding a free microchipping and health check service between 11.00am - 3.00pm.

The law has changed and dog owners now face a £500 fine if they don’t microchip their dog.
