Dogs are microchipped free of charge in Phoenix Park
DOGS of all shapes and sizes came to a roadshow in Runcorn.
PDSA, the UK's leading veterinary charity, offered free health checks at Phoenix Park in Castlefields.
Halton Council teamed up with the Merseyside Dog Forum, the RSPCA and the Dogs Trust, to organise the event.
Dogs were microchipped free of charge.
A Halton Council spokesman said: “The chip is about the size of a grain of rice. It is quickly implanted and carries a unique number that is recorded on a national database.
“The chip helps to re-unite you with your dog. Dogs that have been micro-chipped and are found to be straying will, on the first occasion, be returned to their owner by the dog warden free of charge.”
If the owner cannot be contacted, the dog will be taken to kennel and all fees will have to be paid before the dog can be reclaimed.
