East Yorkshire dog owners can get their pets microchipped free of charge.

– which has one of its five centres in Gilberdyke – is offering free tips and reminding owners of the benefits of having their animals chipped.

The charity is currently microchipping dogs in return for owners’ donations as part of a move to heighten awareness during National Microchipping Month.

New guidance due to come in from next April says that all English-based dog should be registered and chipped when eight weeks old. This will put them on an approved microchip database.

Jerry Green centre manager Rebecca Issott says steps like these will substantially lower the amount of dogs left in danger.

Ms Issott, the centre’s North Lincolnshire branch manager is urging every dog owner to microchip their animals. She said this will maximise the chances of owners getting back with lost dogs.

The charity’s target is to re-home over 800 dogs annually.
