Are Your Pets Microchipped?

dog.jpegDog and cat owners across the region are reminded to ensure their pets are microchipped.

New laws introduced in July last year made it a legal requirement for all dogs and cats to be microchipped by 12 weeks of age, or at the point of sale.

The reforms also include mandatory desexing and new rules for dog and cat breeders and sellers.  

The Yorke Peninsula Council says approximately 700 dogs across the area are still not microchipped.

From 1 July 2019 an audit will be conducted on dogs and cats that are not microchipped, and fines will be issued to owners that are not compliant.
