As we are approaching the “Festive Season” I am pleading to all dog/cat owners that have had their dogs/cats microchipped to check the following:
1. Is the dog/cat microchip registered to you
2. If so, are your contact details up to date
If you are not sure how to check these things, or you need help/advice on how to register them in your name, please send me WhatsApp/SMS ONLY on 061 522 8468.
