Free microchips for dogs offered

Micro chipping event
It is envisaged the event will be rolled out across the county

A free pet microchipping scheme designed to clamp down on dog fouling could be extended across County Durham after a successful pilot scheme.

Durham County Council held the event at Plambards Community Centre in Durham.

Neighbourhood wardens advised pet owners of the penalties they may incur if they allowed their pets to foul open spaces without clearing up after them.

The council also offers a free microchipping service for pets at local kennels.
