Council checking on microchipping


Moorabool council is offering $15 microchipping with any new cat or dog registration until the end of May.

The council will be door knocking from April 15 to help ensure all dogs and cats over the age of three months are registered.

“Our animal management team witnesses the stress an animal goes through when impounded,” the council said.

“This is why, if your dog or cat is wearing an up to date council registration tag, officers will make attempts to contact you to reunite you with your pet directly, bypassing the need for your pet to go to the pound.

“If you have not yet had your dog or cat microchipped, Council is offering $15 microchipping with any new registration until 30 May.

If your pet is desexed, a reduced fee is applied. You will need to provide proof of desexing.
