Pet Owners Urged To Chip Their Animals

Gloucestershire Constabulary, in conjunction with Cheltenham Animal Shelter, is encouraging pet owners in the North Cotswolds to support a micro-chip scheme in the area.

Owners of cats and dogs are being encouraged to have their pets micro-chipped, especially in more rural areas, to help reunite lost pets.

PCSO Melanie Cheesbrough said: "People in more rural areas are more likely to have pets and we are regularly called when they go missing.
Cheltenham Animal Shelter has very kindly offered us their expertise and are coming to Bourton on the Water to provide the micro-chip service so that it is easier to reunite lost pets with their owners."

Micro chipping is a permanent identification marker and once inserted can not be seen by the naked eye.

Once an animal has been identified through its chip the police can contact the micro chip company and reunite owners and pets as soon as possible.

Members of Cheltenham Animal Shelter will be providing this service at the Countrywide Store on Station Road, Bourton on the Water on Saturday November 17 (10am - 2pm).

The service will cost £8 and also includes a free pet health check.
