A free dog microchipping event will be held in north Carlisle.

In partnership with The Dogs Trust, Carlisle City Council will be holding an event at the Belah Centre, St. Ann’s Hill between 11am and 3pm on Monday February 18.

As of April 2016, the microchipping of dogs became a legal requirement.

No appointment is required to attend the event, which will also feature advice and a free basic health check.
